Open Thread | The Heinous Acts of Abbott and DeSantis With Regards to Migrants

There are those who believe that the actions of Abbott and DeSantis with regards to Migrants was to ‘distract’ folks from the Abortion issue, which is a loser for the GOP. And, it might be true, because when all else fails, the GOP always brings up caravans, but, that issue wasn’t making a splash, because 46 and his Administration have been able to get things in check, and process people pretty quickly. And, if the MSM can’t blame 46 and his Administration, they weren’t getting any attention outside of Fox News.

Hence, their new trick – putting Migrants on busses and dropping them off in liberal cities, usually without notifying said city that they were coming. They have been doing this, and the cities have been sighing and taking care of the migrants dumped into their midst. This week, they decided to up the ante. Abbott sent folks to the National Observatory – which is the home of the Vice President of the United States.

DeSantis topped that by chartering private planes and dropping off Migrants at Martha’s Vineyard.

The moment that I heard this story, it made no sense. Florida doesn’t have a border to be overrun – it’s surrounded by water and its only border is the northern one with OTHER AMERICAN STATES. So, my first question was where did the migrants cross a ‘ Florida border’.
Then, I found out that they weren’t from FLorida. They were from TEXAS. HOW did Migrants from TEXAS wind up on planes paid by the state of FLORIDA, going to MASSACHUSETTS?

I do think that the Martha’s Vineyard ploy has people asking all the right questions. Like how isn’t this kidnapping and human trafficking? And, who went along with this illegality?

Both Abbott and DeSantis are abusing these Migrants. Using them as pawns. Using them as pawns in their pandering to their Racist MAGA Republicans. I won’t say base. They are pandering to the entire party. And, we have a ‘ both sides’ MSM, who won’t call them on the cruelty. They cover it in terms of ‘ politics’, when it’s actually inhumane conduct by both of them, treating these Migrants as nothing more than chips in their racist immigration game. In their bids to be seen as
‘Presidential Material’ by the Republican Party.

We have problems with our Migrant policy, because we have a broken immigration system overall. It needs to be overhauled. It’s been needing to be overhauled. George W. Bush lied us into TWO WARS, and he was the last Republican to seriously attempt to overhaul the immigration system. He failed due to the racist anti-immigrant sentiment that overruns the Republican party. Any serious attempt at overhauling the immigration system has been left with absolute obstruction from the Republican Party, and the MSM continues to blame it as a failure of ‘ Congress’. It’s NOT a failure of ‘Congress’. It’s a FAILURE OF THE DELIBERATE SABOTAGE BY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

Now that people are finally asking the right questions, the GOP is lying and scrambling.

And, this is curious, isn’t it?

Uh huh
Uh huh

This entire process has been heinous, but, it also has racist roots – surprise surprise.

    .@JuddLegum obtained a copy of the brochure that @GovRonDeSantis used to lure migrants to board planes to Martha’s Vineyard. He had pamphlets made up with fake information about nonexistent services. This makes their entire trip not voluntary, but coerced, which is criminal.

    Members of the 1776 Restoration Movement were back in Washington, D.C. this morning, and part of their activities included flooding the veteran’s suicide hotline with bogus calls urging the D.C. jail to release Jan 6th rioters.

    If Herschmann’s testimony is as good as this article suggests, DOJ will be able to establish a key element of the charges they set forth in the search warrant affidavit – his state of mind. That’s usually the most difficult element in cases like this.

    Asylum is LEGAL immigration. They had appointments to meet with their immigration officers. Maybe the problem is you know fuck all about the immigration systems and just hate brown people?

    HUGE: Trump was warned LATE LAST YEAR by counsel Eric Herschmann that he could face legal liability if he didn’t return government materials he took when he left office. This is critical for prosecutors to prove espionage because it shows *willful* flouting of the law.
