In this weekend’s WSJ, there is an article entitled “Migrant Buses Test Nonprofits, Cities.” The so-called “migrant buses” are the ones leaving the border states of Texas and Arizona, filled with illegals, bound for the nation’s capital. It seems that the many non-profit “immigrant-rights” organizations which advocate for and assist those who cross our newly-opened southern border are overwhelmed by the large volume of people now on their doorstep.
In the WSJ article, the word “migrant” appears 20 times. In the same article, the word “illegal” appears exactly once, at the bottom of Paragraph Five. I think that headline might just be a bit misleading. The writers of the article write with a decidedly sympathetic slant, feeling bad for all those unfortunate migrants who are forced onto buses and transported to Washington, when they really wanted to go to Miami or New York. No mention is made of the fact that those migrants are breaking our laws by crossing our southern border, and the non-profit organizations are accessories to the crimes of illegal entry and illegal residence in our country, being committed by the migrants.
Somehow, I just cannot feel too sorry for all the illegal migrants who are not supposed to be here, regardless of their poverty and wanting a better life in the United States. And I think it’s criminal for those non-profits to be helping them at all. Unfortunately, those at the top of our government have invited them here, and I think it’s justice for them to be confronted with the results of their policies. More power to Ducey of Arizona and Abbott of Texas for sending the illegals to the source of their invitations. I think Muriel Bowser needs to set up a shelter for them in her backyard, and Biden needs to set up a shelter and processing center on the White House lawn.
And the editors of the Wall Street Journal need to recognize that we Conservatives are not “anti-immigration” but anti-Illegal Immigration! Will that ever happen? Probably not.Published in
