Anon New Yorker reaction to illegal migrants dumped at them from Texas.
Oh no, they were dropped off randomly on your front lawn with no warning or organization? I wonder what that feels like. Fuck off you bougie twit, this issue is decades old and the best we've gotten out of the rest of the country is a patronizing "we recognize there's a problem, but you're being a bigot about it". Abbot's a chode, but A: I'll be dead and Democrat voter anyway before I give Beta a shot at any power over my home, and B. if he managed to ruffle your feathers then the stunt worked as intended. And don't play the racism card after Democrats explicitly tried to cut Cubans and Venezuelans out of pro-immigration actions.
The US needs comprehensive immigration reform, but only four states directly suffer for a lack of it so the rest of the country just sneers at us when we complain.
I thought New York would want those illegal migrants to settle in their territories.
To be fair to the author he specifically says that he has no issue with the redirection of migrants, just that it was done with no notice given to New York authorities and that the Texas deliverymen were sometimes intentionally obtuse in the assistance offered to the migrants after arrival. He seems to miss that New York could take action to interdict the caravans if they were warned and that the chaotic mess is the point. The bussing is a political stunt and a cheap one at that. In a perfect world, I would also condemn Abbot for being an asshole, but this is an old problem and one that people in NY, DC, and other influential political regions have made abundantly clear they want to exacerbate since they find it useful to their ends and don't have to suffer the downsides of.
New yorkers for decades gleefully enabled havok and chaos to happen in Texas and to its people now they get to deal with the conqeuences.
Not much fun when it happens to you is it?
They always squeal when they get a taste of their own medicine. There's a reason the US is a federalist system and I look forward to a day when the government remembers that. New York can run New York the way New York wants, but don't make policy that screws Texas and then whine when Texas throws said policy through your font window.
Oh and one final complaint. I never want to hear another person complain about how Texas sets content for school books ever again. If your education system is too cheap to commission its own curriculum that's your problem, not ours. Maybe spend less money on bribing Teacher's Union officials and more on actual school supplies.
Or dissolve the department of Education while I'm wishing for things.
