California Wanted More Illegals, Now Border Patrol Will Grant Their Wish Three Times a Week

Share

Democrats in California wanted more illegal immigrants, so Border Patrol will grant their wish by flying hundreds of illegal immigrants to the Golden State.

California has been notoriously permissive toward illegal immigration, with multiple sanctuary cities refusing to cooperate with immigration law enforcement officials.

And last year, a California Democrat introduced legislation that would have given government-funded healthcare to illegal immigrants, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Fortunately, the legislation didn’t pass, but it’s an example of California Democrats practically daring illegal immigrants to live there.

And it looks like California will get its wish.

“The U.S. Border Patrol said Friday that it would fly hundreds of migrant families from south Texas to San Diego for processing,” the Associated Press reported.

The flights will continue indefinitely three times a week, and each flight will contain 120 to 135 illegal immigrants, according to Douglas Harrison, the Border Patrol’s interim San Diego sector chief.

“We don’t have an end date,” Harrison said. “This is a contingency operation. We’ve got to give the people in Rio Grande Valley some relief.”

Is it time to build a border wall?

Democrats insist there isn’t an immigration crisis at the southern border, but local border communities have seen an unprecedented surge in illegal immigration, and they can’t keep up.

The huge influx in illegal immigration resulted in Douglas Nicholls, the mayor of Yuma, Arizona, declaring a state of emergency last month.

“Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system,” Nicholls said.

The mayor also warned about mobs of migrants “roaming the streets looking to satisfy basic human needs” because local shelters are unable to adequately care for them.

It’s a similar story for local border communities in Texas, which is why Border Patrol has resorted to flying illegal immigrants to California.

But even San Diego, where the flights land, will struggle with the influx of illegal immigrants.

“The flights could further strain the San Diego Rapid Response Network, a coalition of religious and civic groups that has provided temporary shelter to asylum-seeking families since large-scale releases began in October,” the AP reported.

Keep in mind that all of this struggle could have been avoided if there was a proper border wall, which Democrats continue to oppose.

But the California city shouldn’t have an issue with the surge of illegal immigrants because it’s exactly what they wanted. After all, San Diego is a sanctuary city.
