Sanctuary City Boston Mayor Says The Immigration System Is Broken Or Something

As mayor of a sanctuary city and someone who had supported unfettered illegal immigration isn’t a “broken system” exactly what she wanted?

Wu on migrant crisis: ‘We’re experiencing the symptoms of a federal immigration system that’s been broken’

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu visited NBC 10 Boston’s @Issue and explained the migrant situation that the city of Boston and the state of Massachusetts is going through as they’re trying to find shelter for the influx of people coming into the state.

“We’re experiencing the symptoms of a federal immigration system that’s been broken” said Wu. “At the federal level, there have been over a decade of conversations about how to fix, but as those conversations are ongoing about how to insure there are legal pathways to citizenship and then to have enforcement and security at the border around legal pathways, and then to have resources directed down to municipalities, it’s a lot before anything might be ever felt at the local level.”

“We are seeing families arrive with little kids, sometimes with no shoes just trying to get by and we are working with the governor and trying to support the state addressing this crisis.”

Wu added that 25% of the beds in the city’s shelter system is also being used for recently arrived migrants.

Offering a pathway to citizenship entices even more illegals to come to the U.S. The system isn’t broken, Los Federales just refuse to secure the border, meaning Obama and Biden. Bush43 wasn’t the greatest, either. There are certainly laws that need to be tweaked, such as the asylum, ending work permits, immediate deportation, oh, and, how about prosecuting Americans who entice people to come illegally? That’s a federal code violation. In the meantime, SCB and Mayor Wu got what they asked for.

When’s she going to host illegals herself?

(NBC Boston) A Suffolk University poll of 1,000 Massachusetts voters who said they were at least somewhat likely to vote this November found that “immigration and border security” was the second-most important issue on voters’ minds (25.2% said it was the top issue), slightly trailing “the future of American democracy” (27.1%). Similarly, “illegal immigration” ranked by respondents as the second-biggest threat to U.S. interests (27.7%), behind only “China’s expanding power across the globe” (28.2%).

And 46.8% of people polled by Suffolk said that the U.S. border and the number of immigrants entering the country (legally or illegally is not specified) is “an emergency situation, and among the most serious issues facing the U.S.” Another 31.5% of respondents said it is “a major problem, but not an emergency.”

A separate poll of 788 likely Massachusetts primary voters released Thursday by the Fiscal Alliance Foundation revealed strong feelings around the migrant situation, with a majority of respondents saying they do not think Massachusetts can accommodate additional migrants (65.2%) and that tax dollars should not be used to provide shelter to migrants (53.3%).

I’d like to see these types of polls ask “what should we do about this?” and include answers like “lock down the border” and “make those applying for asylum do it in other nations”, see how that goes.

    The US Senate passed a bipartisan bill addressing border security but private citizen Big Donnie Knavs “vetoed” it via his toady, Lil Mikie Johnson.

    Why? Harming America is great politics for Mr Knavs.

    • Jl says:

      The House passed HR2, The Secure the Border Act of 2023 earlier in the legislative session. It’s a mystery why the Senate hasn’t voted on it….wait, no there isn’t..

  2. CarolAnn says:

    A fundraising letter from Jill Biden that says “I hope you can imagine how it felt to read that attack—not just as Joe’s wife, but as Beau’s mother.” regarding the observation that biden couldn’t remember when his son died.

    DOCTOR Jill Biden is not Beau’s mother. Beau’s mother was creepy joe’s first wife. Yet this claim went out over Jill’s signature. Truly we do live in a post-truth era, at least for the Biden family and just about all democrat/communists.

    • Dana says:

      Well, she is his step-mother, and it’s not as though the first Mrs Biden is a divorcee who’s hanging around. I’d give Mrs Biden a pass on this one.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Jill Jacobs and Joe Biden married in 1977 when Beau Biden was 8 years old. Jill Biden earned her Ed.D. degree in 2007. She also has 2 Masters Degrees.

      If she wasn’t a mother to Beau from 8 years on, who was?

      • drowningpuppies says:

        She was a “mother” to Hunter too.

        Looks like she raised him “right”.

        Bwaha! Lolgf

      • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

        Nobody, his mother was dead. She was his stepmother not his mother. You know that. And once again we don’t need a total history of the biden family tree for you to try and insist that she was his mother. You know she was not his mother. And none of us care when she earned her education doctorate or her masters degrees they are not germane to this conversation. As usual you try and bring in all kinds of extraneous BS to muddy the waters. None of this crap has anything to do with anything you say. You were wrong she is not his mother admit it.

        • Brother John says:

          The most important thing about the car accident that claimed the life of Biden’s first wife and eldest daughter in late 1972 is the fact that that son of a bitch spent the rest of his career claiming that the truck driver involved in the crash was drunk, when in fact the accident was caused by an unfortunate mistake on the late Mrs Biden’s part.

          In fact, his swearing in in January 1973 was a staged photo-op, done at the hospital bedside of his son Beau, injured in that crash.

          The man is a fucking scumbag with zero morals or limiting principles. All of this should have been more widely known then and since. Delaware, what the hell is wrong with you? Did the credit card companies keep the ballot boxes stuffed for this asshole for 30 years?

    Family Gets Call to Host Migrants, In Less Than an Hour They’ve Got Visitors at the Door
    Rachel M. Emmanuel | February 13, 2024 at 7:45am

    Facing a swelling population of homeless migrant families, Massachusetts has resorted to a desperate measure — recruiting residents to serve as volunteer hosts while longer-term housing solutions are arranged.

    According to a July story by WBUR, with state-run facilities filled to capacity, Massachusetts started a host-family initiative to provide temporary room and board.

    Geralde Gabeau, the executive director of the Immigrant Family Services Institute, told the outlet, “While the state is trying to figure out exactly what to do and [how] to open up more shelters, I think we — as citizens, as members of our community — we also need to play a role.”

    In August, Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey and Lt. Gov. Kim Driscoll requested Massachusetts families to consider housing migrants in their homes due to the lack of space.

    “If you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Safe housing and shelter is our most pressing need. Become a sponsor family… step up if you’re willing to have an additional family be part of your family,” Driscoll said in a news conference.

    And some families have been stepping up.

    According to the Brookline News, a news outlet serving the Boston suburb of Brookline, Brookline Town Meeting Members Jessica and Coline Stokes read an email from another elected official in November about the migrant crisis overwhelming Massachusetts shelters and said they felt moved to help.

    After discussing the idea with their college-aged daughter and teenage son, the Stokes told state refugee officials they could likely take in a family short-term, the Brookline News reported.

    They didn’t expect a call to come so soon. But on Jan. 6, the Stokes family got an urgent call — a Haitian family of four needed shelter immediately after spending four nights on the hard floor of Logan Airport, where many migrant families have taken shelter.

    Within half an hour of the Stokes saying “yes,” the family of Anthonyne, her husband, Edner, and two children, Naika and Eduardo, arrived at their doorstep.

    The Haitian natives have fled their homeland’s poverty, first for Chile, then to the United States after a journey that crossed South and Central America before the family arrived in Eagle Pass, Texas, according to the Brookline News.

    There’s more at the original, and I deleted the internal hyperlinks to keep this from going into the trash.

    But Massachusetts has some pretty tough eviction laws, and if this grateful Haitian family decline to move out, guess what: the Stokes would have to go to court to get them evicted, a process which could take months. And in the Bay State, it is illegal for landlords to change the locks to keep tenants out.

    We can all hope that the very good-hearted Stokes family do not get burned by this, but there’s no guarantee.

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Watch as the Stokes are driven into bankruptcy Meanwhile, Elwood roots for the Haitians. The only thing that could have made the scenario better as if the illegals were zulus.

      The Babylon Bee has compiled the following list of common signs you may, in fact, be a Christian nationalist:

      You’re a Christian: The biggest red flag of all.
      You have voted in an election: You think you’re supposed to have a say in who leads the country, you maniac?
      You’re married: To a person of the OPPOSITE sex, so there’s no telling what horrible things you might do.
      You are currently in possession of an American flag: Only a truly hateful person displays such frightening imagery.
      You agree with the idea of building a society on principles like “do not steal,” “do not lie,” and “do not murder”: Haven’t you ever heard of the separation of CHURCH and STATE?
      You let someone wearing a MAGA hat walk by without punching them in the face: Disturbing evidence that you agree with Nazis.
      You pay for merchandise at Target instead of just running out the door: It’s probably because you think you’re better than everyone else. A classic symptom of Christian Nationalism.
      You won’t let your 3rd-grader join the After School Satan Club: Refusing to let your child hang out with the Prince of Darkness is a clear sign you’re a bigot.
      You face Mar A Lago five times per day and pray to Donald Trump: All Christian Nationalists do this. Ask Elwood.
      You own a Bible: Even more dangerously, it’s a King James Version.
      If you exhibit any of the signs listed above, you are officially a Christian nationalist and an existential threat to the United States. It’s a good thing you’re already on an FBI watch list.

    So, the Dems backing Biden and his awful open borders policy want the rest of us to bail them out of the problem they created?

    Umm, no. Sorry. I barely have room in my small home to house me, my elderly mother, and my cats.

  5. david7134 says:

    Maybe if they actually enforced immigration laws we could determine if the work or not. As it is we have over 10 million wet backs that need to go home.

    • Brother John says:

      10 million that arrived just in the last three years.

      Plus the 11 million we were hectored about back in 2005 which was really far north of 20 million.

      Plus whatever came in the meanwhile, when His Royal Blackness was working to import them.

      It’s entirely possible that more than 25% of all persons in the USA as I write don’t actually belong here.

  6. Brother John says:

    Once this becomes slightly more than voluntary, it’ll be a flagrant violation of the Third Amendment, the only one that various governments and the Democrat party have not actively worked to destroy.

    It forbids “quartering of soldiers,” and since these illegal aliens constitute an invading force, that qualifies.
