Colorado governor yields to outcry from fellow Dems, halts ‘callous’ plan to bus migrants to NYC, Chicago

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis will stop sending illegal immigrants to cities like New York City and Chicago after his Democratic colleagues in these cities complained — a program that gives credence to the old saying that it’s better to act and apologize for it later than to seek approval and risk rejection.

With more than 5 million illegal immigrants storming the U.S. border since President Biden took office two years ago, border communities were long ago overwhelmed by the human invasion, and various efforts began to scatter the migrants across the United States — Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott, a Republican, has bussed thousand to Democrat-run areas. And while Colorado is not on the border, the state is seeing a “major influx” from the hordes flowing into the country and Polis was working with local authorities in Denver to help send migrants on their way, according to Fox News.

That is until New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago called on the Democratic governor to put a halt to the practice — these municipalities being notable “sanctuary cities” for illegal immigrants.

“We have seen your statements in the media that you are simply accommodating the wishes of migrants to come to cities like New York City and Chicago,” Adams and Lightfoot wrote in a joint letter. “However, you are sending migrants and families to New York City and Chicago that do not have any ties, family members or community networks to welcome them.”

Sounding more like a travel agent than the governor of a state, Polis said, “People fleeing violence and oppression in search of a better life for themselves and their families deserve our respect not political games and we are grateful we have been able to assist migrants to reach their final destination.”

Talk about spin. He justified their actions by saying, “We refuse to keep people against their will if they desire to travel elsewhere.”

At a press conference last week, an outraged Adams compared the migrants being bussed from Colorado to Abbott’s efforts.

“One time we had to deal with Republican governors sending migrants to New York. Now we’re dealing with Democratic governors sending migrants to New York,” Adams said. “What’s callous is how we have been ignored as a city. And now I have to make tough decisions on the resources of New York … it is time for the federal government to step up.”

The consistency is calling for the federal government to take action plays to the designs of creating a crisis by overwhelming the system, setting the state for transformational action.

Either way, it’s safe to say that the White House is now pushing the envelope when it comes to a wide-open border that lends itself to the left’s artificial manipulation of voter demographics in America — thus President Biden’s sudden interest in the crisis his administration is largely responsible for.
