Outraged DC Councilwoman: TX and AZ Governors 'Have Turned Us Into a Border Town'

Washington, D.C. City Councilwoman Brianne Nadeau blamed the Governors Greg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona for “turning [D.C.] into a border town” by bussing several thousand recent border crossers into her so-called “sanctuary city” to help relieve the burden born by their state.

“The governors of Texas and Arizona have created this crisis,” Nadeau blathered at a press briefing, incensed that her city’s resources and homeless shelters have been overwhelmed by the relatively small influx of about 9,400 migrants that have so far been bussed in from Texas. (For context, about 8,000 migrants cross the U.S. border every single day, meaning the number of illegal aliens that have been dumped in D.C. over the past several months amounts to less than a day and a half’s worth of illegal aliens pouring into border towns.)

Days after Mayor Muriel Bowser declared a state of emergency over the massive wave of illegal immigrants pouring into her backyard, Nadeau whined that the feds aren’t doing enough to help D.C. deal with their “crisis,” following reports that the Biden administration wasn’t happy with the “optics” of Bowser repeatedly requesting support from the National Guard.

“The federal government has not stepped up to assist the District of Columbia, so we…will do what we have always done, and rise to the occasion,” Nadeau said.

“We have learned from border towns like El Paso and Brownsville, and in many ways, the governors of Texas and Arizona have turned us into a border town,” she then complained.

I’m sure the actual border towns who’ve had to bear the brunt of this administration’s open-border policies on a daily basis for years are planning to cry great big sympathy tears over D.C.'s troubles.

Perhaps Nadeau and company shouldn't think of it as "bussing," but rather simply a "redistribution of migrants."

After all, socialism teaches us that sharing is caring, and that forced sharing is the very best kind.
