Democrats along the eastern coast of the U.S. are now beginning to complain quite openly about being forced to deal with the consequences of their own actions to the tune of massive influxes of illegal aliens who are being shipped up from Republican-controlled states into their areas, claiming that the process is placing a heavy strain on their resources.
Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House Press Secretary, has issued a response to one question during a press conference this past week about the “thousands” of illegal aliens that have been sent up to Washington, D.C., and New York City from areas such as Arizona and Texas amid the border crisis caused by the Biden administration.
“We believe it’s shameful that — that some governors are using migrants as a political tool, as a political play, when we should be making sure that we’re doing everything that we can to help — to help folks who are coming into this process in a legal way and making sure that, you know, we do this in a — in a safe — in a safe way and a respectful way,” she stated. “And I think it’s shameful that that is happening.”
Eric Adams, the Democrat Mayor of New York City, stated during a press conference this past week that the influx of illegal aliens being sent from down south to his city was a “real burden on New Yorkers.”
“As I stated, we already have an overburdened shelter system. So now we’re talking about, as you stated, food, clothing, schools,” he stated. “This is going to impact our schools because we do not turn away individuals because they’re undocumented, need translation services. There’s just a whole host of things that this is going to produce. And that’s why we need help in getting this done and we need to write coordination to make it happen.”

A crisis along the southern border has broken out under Biden’s leadership as U.S. Customs and Border Protection has recorded well over two million encounters with illegal aliens over the course of the fiscal year 2022. That is the highest number ever seen by the agency in a single year, and the fiscal year still has another two months time to grow that number.
The hardest hit by this crisis has been the Republican-led border states such as Arizona and Texas. earlier this month, four different counties in Texas made a declaration of emergency invasion about the border crisis. Arizona saw a massive 579% increase in encounters with illegal aliens over the past year.
