Can you smell the “enrichment”?

I can, from all the way down here.

If Martha’s Vineyard Tried To Prove It Cares About Immigrants, It Failed Miserably
When Republican governors send 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, it’s a humanitarian crisis. When 51 migrants who were encouraged to cross the border by Democrats die in the back of a truck, well, that’s a statistic.

In September of 2014, I found myself in a town hall meeting in Lexington, Nebraska — population 10,000. It’s a meat-packing town about three hours west of Omaha, and not what one would call a wealthy town. I was there on a campaign stop with Sen. Ben Sasse, and the people of Lexington were very concerned with one issue in particular: what to do about the 11 Central American kids the federal government had dropped off unannounced in Lexington the month prior, just before the start of school. There had been a rapid influx of unaccompanied minors crossing the border that summer, and the Obama administration just relocated many of them around the country in towns such as Lexington.

It bears repeating that these were children that needed taking care of. Whatever social services you think are needed to take care of regular migrants, this was a much bigger and more expensive issue for the town. Self-sufficiency wasn’t just a matter of finding them work — these kids had to be clothed, fed, educated, and generally looked after for years.

The townspeople were alternately irate about being put into this situation and genuinely concerned for the kids’ welfare, given the town’s limited resources. After listening to the townspeople plead for help, we got on the campaign bus and drove to the next stop. For all I know, those migrant kids are still in Lexington, and the community of Lexington is hardly unique. Hundreds, if not thousands, of American towns have had to rise to meet challenges as a result of the federal refugee resettlement.

Perhaps you can start to see why I was unimpressed with the residents of Martha’s Vineyard for harboring 50 migrants for two days before sending in the military to herd them off. And yet, because the DeSantis stunt — and there are valid objections to flinging migrants hither and yon to make a point — exposed a great deal of hypocrisy among Democrats, there is a campaign afoot to portray Martha’s Vineyard as a model of compassion for the way they treated these immigrants.

In my wildest dreams, I could not have made up CNN’s headline that was this unintentionally parodic and unflattering: “‘They enriched us.’ Migrants’ 44-hour visit leaves indelible mark on Martha’s Vineyard.”

Valid objections, is it? Name three. DeSantis, Abbott, and Ducey, having been reduced to real desperation because of the untenable position their local small-town communities have been forced into by DemonRat open-borders policies, are doing no more than precisely what FederalGovCo has been doing to THEM for many years. If the über-rich MV twats don’t enjoy the taste of their own rancid medicine, well, tough noogies for them.

In fact, Martha’s Vineyard is so broke it started a GoFundMe to help with the 44-hour crisis — yes, the town actually issued a statement calling it a “humanitarian crisis.” The GoFundMe, which has since closed, was organized by Sarah Goulet on behalf of the Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation. Sarah Goulet is a New York communications executive whose clientele seems to consist largely of art galleries, and her husband is a journalist at GQ magazine. She’s apparently made six campaign donations to Kamala Harris, our deeply unpopular vice president and “border czar” who recently assured us that our southern border is secure. As for the Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation, it’s already sitting on a slush fund of $16 million. According to the foundation, they are using that money for efforts “addressing the effects of climate change on the Island,” “eradicating racism,” removing “the barriers that prevent equal rights for all,” and “ultimately eliminating inequality and injustice.” (Once again, I must attest to the fact that these details are real and not parody.)

How many community organizations do you think there are in Lexington, Nebraska, that have $16 million to help solve civic problems? A single charity on Martha’s Vineyard, and one heavily committed to social justice causes, could have easily supported 50 migrants on the island indefinitely until they were self-sufficient and fully incorporated into the community.

Well, there’s just one problem left to address. There’s a housing crisis on the island. Fortunately, former President Barack Obama has 29 acres on the island. Surely he could donate a plot of land and tap his own personal fortune — the deal for the Obamas’ memoirs alone was worth $65 million — to construct a shelter for these people seeking a better life here in America, right? After all, it’s the least he can do — Obama’s personally responsible for many of the immigration policies that created this “humanitarian crisis,” and he’s directly responsible for burdening other towns such as Lexington, which didn’t seem to have the option of sending their migrants elsewhere.

By now, the point here should be clear — there are no easy answers to the problems of mass immigration.

Like hell there ain’t. The solution to our immigration problem is simplicity itself: halt ALL immigration for a period of, say, five years at the very least, preferably ten—until, as Trump said, we can “figure out what’s going on” with our effectively non-existent southern border. The realization that there is absolutely NO chance of such a thing ever happening will confirm for all time that what we have isn’t really an immigration problem, it’s a “liberal” problem.

The solution to that one is pretty simple also, if admittedly a bit unpleasant to contemplate. In the meantime, strictly as far as immigration is concerned, Wayne Allen Root proposes a handy-dandy fix for it.

Democrat Governors are calling up the National Guard in panic. DeSantis has hit a homerun. I should know- it’s my idea. But now we have to double down. Put it into overdrive. Put pedal to the metal. Every other GOP Governor needs to join the fight. It’s time for national expansion.

We have to make it rain illegals wherever rich liberals live.

First, don’t stop at Martha’s Vineyard. Let’s hit all the rich, woke, liberal, spoiled brat, Democrat towns. Send thousands of illegal aliens each week to the Hamptons, Scarsdale, Great Neck, Beverly Hills, Malibu, Palo Alto, La Jolla, Napa Valley, Beacon Hill (in Boston), the Gold Coast of Chicago, the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Georgetown in DC.

Bury all the rich liberal towns with illegals. Make sure elitist, woke, liberal Democrat hypocrites have to step over hordes of illegals to get into Starbucks, their hairdresser, nail salon, supermarkets, restaurants, and their kid’s schools. Make them scream “Uncle.”

DeSantis has the right idea to flood Vice President Kamala Harris’s lawn with illegals. But don’t stop there. Flood the lawns of every Democrat politician who supports open borders: Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, Chuck Schumer, clueless Transportation Secretary Pete Butthead, and send a few extra busloads to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s mansion.

But don’t stop with national Democrat leaders. Flood the homes of Democrat Senate candidates like John Fetterman in Pennsylvania, Tim Ryan in Ohio, Senator Raphael Warnock in Georgia and Senator Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada. Make them answer questions about open borders while their neighborhoods are overrun by illegals.

Let’s see who the real “racists” are. If Democrats like illegals so much, you can live with them.

By all means, let’s. Let them wriggle, writhe, and scream all they want, with their ludicrous claims of “cruelty,” “barbarism,” “inhumanity,” and even, ferchrissakes, “kidnapping.” It’s nothing of the sort; this is a matter of plain and simple fairness, no more nor less.

This, THIS. A Thousand Times THIS!!!
There should be an endless conga line of busses going from every border state right to the blue hive cities, lawns, and doorsteps.
Catholic Church wants to be pro-illegal immigrant? 200 busses every Sunday right to the steps of the nearest Archdiocese.
10 busses/day for every pro-illegal congressweasel (and that includes to Lindsay Grahamnesty and Marco ScrewYoubio’s houses). And not just their DC houses. their home district houses, and their vacation houses. Encourage the illegals to squat in whichever ones aren’t currently occupied.
Federal judge Let ‘Em Go? His house goes on the internet list, and he gets 50 busses a day, all for himself. And all his neighbors.
Then find their kids’ houses, and relatives.

Make. THEM. SCREAM.

And if they ship them to a toxic waste superfund site holding pen is okay, do the same damned thing with any extra ones you can’t transship to the Lieberal @$$holes’ houses.

Choke the machine. Cloward-Piven this to death, until they happily fund the Great Wall Of Mexico from Brownsville to San Ysidro, and build it 50 feet high and 100′ thick, with no openings, and extend it half a mile out to sea. Put the illegals in holding cells to work on it too. And slap a tariff on all trade goods from Tijuana to Tierra Del Fuego, and apply that money directly to the construction cost.

Then do a 30+-year immigration halt, just like we did in 1930.
No immigration, period.
We don’t care, we’re full, fuck off and go somewhere else.

And in 30 years, if you get down on your knees and beg, are rabidly pro-America, and if you’ve got a STEM PH.D. and $1M in personal assets per applicant, maybe we’ll crack open the tap. To maybe 50-100 applicants a year, total.
If a grand jury of 12 natural born American citizens and 11 of the most recent immigrants from 30 years ago gives you a unanimous thumbs up.
One down-vote, and it’s tough stuff for you.

Problem solved, forever.
