It’s no secret that Democratic politicians are pushing for open borders and an end to immigration enforcement. They want to eliminate any and all barriers to entry for anyone arriving in the United States, but this policy has had unintended consequences. In fact, hundreds of immigrants from Central and South America are fleeing New York City every day in search of a better life in Canada—and taxpayers are the ones footing the bill.
Susy Sanchez Solzarno, a 33-year-old from Peru, said it best: “I wanted to live in New York because I thought it would be a better future for my daughters, but as the days went by, I saw insecurity, many homeless people, many people who shout and are disrespectful, and many people on drugs. … I am going to Canada for the safety and future of my girls.”
Manuel Rodon, a 26-year-old from Venezuela, agreed: “A lot of the Americans used drugs [in New York]. I feel like Canada will be safer. It is a much quieter country than America.”
It’s not just New York City, either. San Francisco, another city run by Democratic politicians, is also suffering from rampant crime and lawlessness. Homeless people, drug addicts, and thugs are running wild, and it’s driving immigrants away in droves.
Residents can thank their leadership for this latest embarrassment. It’s all the fault of the Democratic politicians who have been in charge for far too long. They have allowed their cities to become cesspools of crime, filth, and lawlessness.
What’s worse, the Democratic politicians have the audacity to suggest that it’s racist to oppose their policies and that it’s racist to suggest that their own states should help ease the burden on border states overwhelmed by the influx of migrants.
You know, if I didn’t think that was such an embarrassment I would try to point out the obvious silver lining here. These are supposedly people fleeing crime and poverty in central and south America.
