It appears that the utopia associated with being a “Sanctuary City” isn’t exactly what was advertised.
Texas Governor Gregg Abbott’s move to bring the border to Blue States is arguably one of the most transformative moves a state executive has taken in the history of the nation. Now that the true scope of the illegal immigration crisis is descending on “Sanctuary Cities” and “Sanctuary States,” some Democrats are now clamoring for the designation–and it’s associated policies–to be ended.
Take Chicago, for example.
Government employee Cata Truss told “Fox News @ Night” Democrat voters like her are growing increasingly frustrated with the party’s handling of the issue.
“There is no moneys to take care of the migrants, nor is there moneys to take care of the people that are there. And so we have a mess on our hands,” Truss said Wednesday.
Truss argued Windy City residents are upset over low income communities and schools being “divested in” while funds are used for the care of migrants instead.
“This is the sentiment from the city of Chicago: We would like to have our status as a sanctuary city removed,” she said. “We would also like to see a better plan in place.”
Truss said she tried to reach out to Democratic elected officials in the city to sit down with her and other members of the community to discuss the situation, but “no one was willing” to talk.
“If you are all not willing to sit down with us, if you’re not willing to talk to us, why should we continue to support you?” she said. “A lot of us [Democrats] are jumping ship.”
MSNBC, hardly a bastion of conservative ideology, is now sounding the alarm that the Biden administration’s disastrous approach to the immigration crisis is going to substantially undermine Democrat party efforts in November. Katy Tur spoke with Truss, who filed a lawsuit against Chicago over the migrant crisis.
Truss: “Democratic Party, we are watching you. We are disappointed. We are angry. We are offended. And we feel like we are being mistreated, misused. and disrespected. We will not continue to be disrespected by the Democratic Party. As I said yesterday, and I’ll say today and tomorrow, if you are an independent candidate, Green Party candidate, Republican candidate, now is your time in this city.
