Who knew New York City was such a generous and sharing place…, as they secretly export their homeless to Hawaii and many other states?!

Wait…, what?

What?

I thought New York City was a “sanctuary city…,” a “caring” city?

I guess New York City is only a “sanctuary city” for people who are in the country illegally…, not for your old run of the mill, actual American citizen.

anyc 1

Only democrats could come up with this lame kind of plan…, and then expect to keep it secret somehow.

anyc 10

In case you didn’t notice, the word “secret” is starting to become synonymous with the democrats.

They’ve got this “secret” plan…, and they’re conducting these “secret” hearings…, and they have “secret” answers to “secret” questions about these “secret’ individuals.

“Secret” “impeachment hearings and interviews with “secret” questions and “secret” answers (unless they are potentially damaging to President Trump, in which case they are leaked to the “liberal propaganda media”), and “secret” accusers and whistleblowers.

And, of course, the democrats are assisted with this “propaganda by omission” by their friends the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” who look the other away regarding their fascist behavior.

Thankfully, not all news media is created in the image of The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS or NBC.

Sara Dorn of The New York Post reports that, “NYC homeless initiative sends people across the US — without telling receiving cities.  Families who once lived in NYC shelters were sent to 32 states and Puerto Rico.  New York City [is] generously sharing its homeless crisis with every corner of America.”

“From the tropical shores of Honolulu and Puerto Rico, to the badlands of Utah and backwaters of Louisiana, the Big Apple has sent local homeless families to 373 cities across the country with a full year of rent in their pockets as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s ‘Special One-Time Assistance Program [SOTA].’ Usually, the receiving city knows nothing about it.”

“The Big Apple has sent local homeless families to 373 cities across the country!”

“373 cities!”

Well, isn’t that special?!

That’s a lot of nerve, NYC…, secretly shipping your “problems” out of town to other unsuspecting cities.

anyc 3

Mayor Bill de Bozio and the rest of the “holier than thou” New York liberals have apparently felt the need to “punt” their problems to other states they consider “low rent…,” and then de Bozio has the nerve to complain about illegal immigrants, who he supposedly supports, being shipped to NYC from our southern border.

I guess he supports the concept…, as long as the illegals go to someone else’s city.

anyc 8

“[New York] City taxpayers have spent $89 million on rent alone since the program’s August 2017 inception to export 5,074 homeless families — 12,482 individuals — to places as close as Newark and as far as the South Pacific, according to Department of Homeless Services (DHS…, not to be confused with The Department of Homeland Security) data obtained by The Post.  Families who once lived in city shelters decamped [departed suddenly or secretly] to 32 states and Puerto Rico.”

Ha!  What liberal genius took the time to come up with the word “decamped?”

These people are just soooo deceiving and soooo disingenuous.

anyc 6

This has been going on for over two years, and it’s just coming out now.

Like I said before, “propaganda by omission.”  “If we don’t report about it, it isn’t happening.”

“The city also paid travel expenses, through a separate taxpayer-funded program called Project Reconnect, but would not divulge how much it spent.”

If it’s taxpayer funded isn’t it a public record?  Secret, secret, secret.

Just sayin’.

“DHS defends the stratospheric costs, saying it actually saves the city on shelter funding — which amounts to about $41,000 annually per family, as compared to the average yearly rent of $17,563 to house families elsewhere.”

anyc 2

“But critics say the ‘stop-gap solution’ has been fraught with problems, and ultimately has failed to help curb the city’s homelessness.”

You don’t say?!

You mean to say we have a democrat program here that doesn’t work?

Join the list of sad democrat programs that don’t work, and that haven’t worked, SOTA!

anyc 7

“Not only are officials in towns where the city’s homeless land up in arms, but hundreds of the homeless families are returning to the five boroughs — and some are even suing NYC over being abandoned in barely livable conditions. Multiple outside agencies and organizations have opened investigations into SOTA.”

“Homeless individuals and families are eligible for SOTA if they can prove they have been in a New York City shelter for at least 90 days and that their household income is no more than twice what it owes in rent. DHS would not expand on eligibility rules.”

Wait.

So let me get this straight.

You can qualify for this program if your “household income is no more than twice what it owes in rent?”

Wouldn’t that be like many people and many families across America?

I mean, most people are not rich or anywhere close to it.

Maybe New York is doing these people a favor by shipping them out of la la land and out into the real world?

But that’s beside the point.

“Some pols [politicians] in towns taking in NYC refugees were shocked by the news.”

‘“So in other words, if someone is in a shelter, y’all will give them money to go somewhere else if they have been there for 90 days? And some of those people have been sent to Metairie [part of the New Orleans metropolitan area]?’ said Michael Yenni, president of Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, when The Post told him the community is among the SOTA destinations.”

‘“I’m not in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s shoes.  I don’t sit behind his desk, and I never will, but it’s certainly interesting. You have shocked me down here in beautiful southeast Louisiana.’”

“The mayor of Willacoochee, Georgia, was similarly stunned. ‘I’m not familiar with none of that,’ Samuel Newson said.”

“The mayor of Harrisville, Utah — who was so baffled to receive a call from The Post that she questioned if the reporter had the wrong number — asked if SOTA recipients are connected to social services in the towns where they move.”

‘“Are they just cutting them loose and saying, “Here you go?” Or are they making sure they don’t find themselves in the same situation a year later?’ Michelle Tait asked.”

“Pols [politicians] in New Jersey, where 2,226 SOTA families have moved, say the answer to Tait’s latter question is ‘No.’”

“Mayor Tony Vauss of Irvington [New Jersey], the destination for 278 SOTA families, said he is ‘highly disturbed by the lack of communication from New York City and the lack of oversight of this program by the city.  ‘SOTA recipients are the population of citizens who require ongoing social services and resources … Therefore, once SOTA ceases funding, program recipients end up using our state and local resources to maintain themselves.’”

“DHS spokesman Isaac McGinn said the city ‘remains committed to using every tool at our disposal to help these families and individuals find stability in the ways that work for them.  Any American, including any New Yorker experiencing homelessness, has the right to seek housing where they can afford it and employment where they can find it.’”

Again…, these people are just soooo manipulative, so deceptive, and soooo disingenuous.

The New York Times chose to begrudgingly report about this program with this liberally spun headline: “City Aids Homeless With One-Way Tickets Home.”

Ha!

Yes…, and NYC baked each one of them an apple pie as a going away present before they unceremoniously gave them their one-way ticket out of town.

I’m sure Mayor de Bozio will end up winning some kind of liberal reward for this program now that they were forced to acknowledge it.

anyc 5

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all just ship our problems somewhere else for someone else to deal with?

Apparently that’s only an option for the liberal elites who know so much better than the rest of us uneducated “deplorables.”

What?!  The head of the Department of Homeland Security leaked information about their own planned raids?!

Who is this Benedict Arnold and why is he still employed?!

Brooke Singman, of Fox News, reported that, “Acting [Department of] Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kevin McAleenan is being accused of leaking plans last week for scheduled Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids, after expressing fierce opposition and allegedly ordering top officials to ‘stand down’ on the operation.”

“A source familiar with the matter told Fox News that when the operation was in its planning phase two weeks ago, McAleenan ordered ICE Acting Director Mark Morgan to call off the deportation operation that was expected to target 2,000 families in up to 10 cities across the country. President Trump, however, ordered that Morgan continue as planned.”

If this is true…, Kevin McAleenan should at the very least be fired, along with being charged with reckless endangerment of the lives of the men and women who are to execute these raids on illegal immigrants who had already been ordered to leave the United States. It is anyone’s right to disagree with any given operation, but it IS NOT anyone’s right to intentionally sabotage an authorized operation and place people’s lives at risk!

dhs 1

What is wrong with these people!

In the military, disobeying a direct order, especially from The Commander in Chief, would get you a court martial.

This is just another example of an unelected, deep state, “swamp monster” deciding to take matters in their own hands against the administration’s wishes.

dhs 2

 

I’m sure former President Obama is finding the whole thing quite entertaining, as these holdover traitors from his administration continually cause these types of self-inflicted embarrassments for the Trump administration.

It’s a shame, but it really can be avoided either.  You just can’t fire thousands and thousands of people from all of these different departments. The problem is that Washington D.C. is infested with liberals, and therein lies the problem. That’s “the swamp.”

Also…, saying that 2,000 “families” are being targeted is misinformation being used as a way of ginning up some level of sympathy for these individuals…, and that’s what they are…, individuals.  We have no way of knowing what their “family” situation may or may not be.

Singman added that, “On Friday, The Washington Post published a story with explicit details of the planned raids, citing U.S. officials familiar with the operation. The story, written by Post immigration reporter Nick Miroff, said the raids would take place before dawn, in major cities including Houston, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles. Miroff also reported that the planned raids would begin on Sunday.”

And everyone at the Washington Post thought this was a good idea as well?

Do you think The Washington Post would have printed the plans for D-Day if they could have gotten their hands on them?

This whole situation really makes me wonder.

Tom Homan, the former head of ICE, stated, ‘“You’ve got the acting secretary of Homeland Security resisting what ICE is trying to do,’ Homan said. ‘He does not support this operation, and I tell you what, if that’s his position, then he’s on the wrong side of this issue.’”

And that, I would say is putting it mildly.

“He noted that the leaked story ‘gave the location of the cities, the day this was supposed to start, how many targets’ and added: ‘This leak — which I know where the leak came from, I think we all know where the leak came from, that story only benefits one person — put these officers at greater risk of harm.’”

‘“To have somebody within DHS leak this information that would have put the general public, as well as our officers in danger—that is one of the most egregious leaks I have ever seen in my life,’ the source told Fox News, noting that ‘you can’t go forward with an operation once everyone knows the time, the place, the details. ICE officers and other law enforcement would have been put directly in harm’s way.’”

“Sources also told The Washington Examiner that McAleenan was behind the leak.”

If Kevin McAleenan was behind the leak, I would suggest to him that he not turn his back to any ICE agents if he happens to be out in the field for any reason.

The President has since announced that the plan would be delayed for two weeks to give congressional Democrats and Republicans time to come to a bipartisan solution on the border crisis. Trump warned though that if an agreement could not be reached, deportations would begin.

“The change of plans came after [President] Trump, earlier in the week, said that ICE would ‘begin the process of removing millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States.’”

dhs 5

Delaying the raids by two weeks was a good call Mr. President.  Not only does it put the onus back on Congress…, but it allows the administration time re-plan the raids, with an emphasis on keeping sensitive information away from these saboteurs and rats.

“DemoRATS” to be specific!

WINNING!

Crisis?  What crisis?

The democrats are always crying that “this” is a crisis and “that” is a crisis.  But when they are asked to acknowledge and deal with a real crisis they choose to take the political low road, stick their heads in the sand, and not only pretend like there is no crisis, but denounce those who call a situation for what it is and attempt to do something about it.

Even though the democrats chose to ignore her last report and actually walk out of her presentation, The Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, was back again and issued a dire assessment of the migration crisis on the southern border, telling a House committee that illegal immigration is “spiraling out of control” and predicting that crisis will “get even worse” in the coming months.

According to Adam Shaw of Fox News, “The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) is warning that the Border Patrol is at its ‘breaking point’ as apprehensions skyrocket.  Children and families now make up more than half of those in custody on the southern border, according to Customs and Border Patrol.”

“Secretary Nielsen also said in a startling revelation that, ‘Customs and Border Protection is on track to apprehend almost 1 million illegal immigrants at the border this year.’”

‘“In February, we saw a 30 percent jump over the previous month, with agents apprehending or encountering nearly 75,000 aliens,’ Nielsen told the House Committee on Homeland Security. ‘This is an 80 percent increase over the same time last year. And I can report today that CBP is forecasting the problem will get even worse this spring as the weather warms up.’”

‘“We want to strengthen legal immigration and welcome more individuals through a merit-based system that enhances our economic vitality and the vibrancy of our diverse nation. We also will continue to uphold our humanitarian ideals,’ she said. ‘But illegal immigration is simply spiraling out of control and threatening public safety and national security.’”

Shaw adds that, “Nielsen’s testimony came a day after the Trump administration released figures showing that more than 2,000 migrants are apprehended each day, a total of 268,000 since the beginning of the fiscal year. DHS reports that the Border Patrol is apprehending illegal immigrants at the highest rate since 2007.”

And remember…, we’re only talking about those we caught.  How many illegal immigrants are coming across that we don’t even know about?

Two times as many?

Three times as many?

Five times as many?

Ten times as many?

Think about it.

How many people who are driving drunk actually get caught?

How many people who speed actually get ticketed?

See what I mean?

‘“We face a crisis, a real, serious, and sustained crisis at our borders. We have tens of thousands of illegal aliens arriving at our doorstep every month. We have drugs, criminals, and violence spilling into our country every week,’ she said.”

“Nielsen predicted disaster if migrant flows escalate: ‘Our capacity is already severely strained, but these increases will overwhelm the system entirely.’”

‘“This is not a ‘manufactured’ crisis. This is truly an emergency,’ she said.”

The Border Patrol has reported a 300 percent spike in illegal crossings at the border, but the media is opting to turn a blind eye, since it just doesn’t represent the narrative they want to present…, that there is no emergency at the southern border, in the attempt to discredit President Trump and his determination that there is a national crisis on our southern border.

“Trump’s declaration would give him access to about $3.6 billion for projects on the border, but the move has seen fierce opposition from Democrats and some Republicans, several of whom are expected to support a congressional rebuke of the emergency declaration, which could, in turn, prompt Trump’s first-ever veto. The House has already passed the measure.”

“Meanwhile, in prepared testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said in testimony that the initial investments in Trump’s wall project were being put ‘to good use’ and barriers in key areas have ‘made an immediate impact’ in stopping illegal immigration in hot spots.”

But Nielsen’s comments seemed likely to be brushed off by Democrats…, again.  Before Secretary Nielsen even spoke, Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, a democrat from Mississippi, criticized Trump’s “non-existent emergency” at the border, as he parroted the standard democrat talking points while choosing to ignore reality.

Our democrat/socialist friends always like to point to Denmark, Finland, and Sweden as examples of how “good socialistic” countries handle these types of issues.  So let’s take a look at how these countries are dealing with the problem of illegal immigration.

Let’s start with Denmark.

Christopher Brito of CBS News reports that, “The Danish government has come up with a plan to send dozens of rejected migrants to a remote island that currently houses a research center conducting tests on diseased animals.”

Hmmm.  Well that sounds interesting. I’m skeptical as to whether anybody in the U.S. Congress would support these actions, however.

“Denmark’s government reached an agreement under its new finance bill for 2019 to decontaminate Lindholm Island, located around two miles from the nearest shore, and then use it hold as many as 100 people by 2021, according to a government website. Among the migrants who could be sent to the island are criminals, rejected asylum seekers and others who can’t return to their home country ‘due to the risk of ill-treatment.’”

“100 people by 2021!?”  The U.S. probably deals with 100 illegal immigrants on an hourly basis.

‘“If you are unwanted in Danish society, you should not be a nuisance to ordinary Danes,’ Denmark’s immigration minister Inger Støjberg wrote on Facebook. ‘“They are undesirable in Denmark, and they must feel it.’”

“It’s not the first time Denmark has taken controversial actions aimed toward migrants amid a wave of populism throughout Europe. In August, the nation banned garments covering the face, including traditional Islamic veils such as the niqab or burqa.”

Obviously we can’t model our handling of illegal immigrants on Denmark’s system.

How about Finland?

According to Virginia Hale of Breitbart News, “Police forces across Finland are carrying out a search for illegal immigrants in a six-day crackdown on aliens living in the country without permission, local media reported.”

“In the period between March 12 and 18, officers will be carrying out identity checks in public places such as restaurants and shopping centers where they suspect illegal immigrants are at large based on intelligence held by police forces in advance.”

Ha!  I know this definitely would fly in the good ole’ USA!

And the democrats are complaining about our own ICE agents in the United States.

“In practice, this means that when a person who is being checked turns out to be foreign, officers will check their immigration status and relevant papers,” said Finnish police chief Mia Poutanen.”

Around 3,000 illegal immigrants are caught each year in Finland as a result of targeted initiatives lasting several days like the one taking place this week.”

Wow…, 3,000?!  That many?  In a year?

In the U.S. we are dealing with that many illegal immigrants per day on a slow day!

Ok…, how about Sweden?  Surely Sweden can show us the way.

According to Johan Ahlander and Mansoor Yosufzai for “Reuters,” “Sweden has intensified its crackdown on illegal immigrants after a failed asylum-seeker killed five people in Stockholm, but the move has raised concerns that more migrants will be driven underground to join a shadowy underclass.”

“In the past months, police have staged wider sweeps on workplaces to check papers, netting undocumented workers, sending a warning to employers and sparking heated debate in a nation that has been traditionally tolerant to migrants.”

“Tough measures against immigrants go against the grain for many in Sweden, a country of 10 million (about the population of North Carolina) which once called itself “a humanitarian superpower” that generously welcomed migrants fleeing conflict in the Middle East and Africa.”

“But attitudes appear to be changing and a 2017 study by Gothenburg University showed 52 percent favored taking fewer refugees into the country with 24 percent opposed. Two years ago 40 percent backed reducing refugee numbers with 37 opposed.”

“The Social Democrats, the Sweden’s biggest party in every election since 1917 and leader of the governing coalition, has been forced to balance its traditional left-wing credentials with the need to enforce immigration laws.”

“The government never discloses how many are held in detention centers, saying there are about 360 beds and deportees are normally repatriated within three weeks. The government has told the migration agency to add another 100 beds.”

Ohhh the pain!  360 beds!  Oh my God.

Please note that the United States operates with over 40,000 detention center beds, and President Trump has asked for those levels to be increased to 52,000 beds!

“In 2016, police made about 1,100 unannounced workplace checks, almost three times more than in 2015, and caught 232 illegal immigrants.”

I believe we caught about that many illegal immigrants in one hour last year when we raided one company!

So not even Sweden provides us with a good immigration option.

The truth is, compared to any time in our past and compared to any other country in the world, the situation on our southern border with Mexico IS A NATIONAL EMERGENCY regarding illegal immigration, illegal drug trafficking, and human trafficking.  Anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is just a disingenuous liar, plain and simple.
