The decade's most triggering comedy
In recent weeks, conservatives seem to be under the impression that illegal immigration surges in places like New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles will finally force the Democratic Party to change its tune on the decades-long problem, but it’s abundantly clear that local and state Democrats believe in a solution to illegal immigration that only worsens it. In short, Democrats across the country think the problem can be solved by telling illegals, “You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here.”
Consider the Empire State as proof of that theory.
“We have to let the word out that when you come to New York, you’re not going to have more hotel rooms,” New York Governor Kathy Hochul said recently. “We don’t have the capacity, so we have to also message properly that we’re at our limit if you’re going to leave your country, go somewhere else.”
This week, Hochul also said of illegal aliens, “We hit our capacity, so we’re asking other areas to embrace these individuals.”

What she should be calling for is mass deportations.
The Big Apple’s Mayor Eric Adams similarly claims to care about the issue, but wants different cities around the country to shoulder the burden. Or, he wants more federal dollars to help provide freebies and more to illegal immigrants.
On the West Coast, Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass admitted in September that she is “fearful” planes of illegals will show up any day.
Again, an easy way to alleviate that fear would be to embrace policies that secure the border, discourage illegal immigration, and remove illegals already in the country.
Yet it seems the truth is that liberals, and certain Republicans, want this invasion to continue because it will provide cheap labor for Big Business and eventually new votes for the Democratic Party.
That’s why you have folks like Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) calling for amnesty for “however many” illegals exist in the U.S., and not many Republican leaders voicing their opposition to such a statement. Bipartisanship, baby!
And so, as we saw on Martha’s Vineyard last year, the liberal solution to the problem is removing illegal immigrants from their area. Just not out of the country.
The crisis will continue so long as that’s their stance and the Republicans don’t put up any meaningful political resistance to stop it.
