"44 hours. That's as long as the community of Martha's Vineyard would put up with having illegals in their area. Wow, I'll bet you the people of McAllen, Texas, would love to have a 44 hour limit on the arrival of illegals into their community. I'll bet you all the people that live in border towns in Arizona and Texas would be grateful for a 44 hour limit. You know what happened, right? With the 50 illegals that governor desantis flew to Martha's Vineyard, they put up with those 50 illegals for 44 hours before they kicked them out. Before they deported them, they shipped them out to a military facility at Cape Cod.
Martha's Vineyard in Chaos After DeSantis Ships Migrants
"And this is absolutely comical. This headline from the New York Post, I can't stop laughing. I'm going to read this to you. Martha's Vineyard is in chaos after Ron DeSantis, ships migrants to liberal enclave. Now, you understand how many illegals were flown to the famed Massachusetts island, 50. 5 O, not 500, not 5000, but 50. You know how many illegals, McAllen, Texas, deals with? You know how many illegals they deal with in the Rio Grande valley? On a regular basis? Do you know how but 50 illegals flown to Martha's Vineyard has created what the local tourism board called a humanitarian crisis? A county emergency management rep issued a statement. This is an ongoing situation. We've reached out to our state and federal partners for additional and long-term support and assistance. Residents are furious. According to the MV times, that would stand for Martha's Vineyard. The Red Cross, the Red Cross. This is like a hurricane. A tornado has ripped through Martha's Vineyard.

Sending Migrants to Sanctuary Cities Is Brilliant
"You have any other reaction other than this is brilliant, there's no hope for you. It's brilliant because you can't have it both ways. You can't declare you can't virtue signal by bragging about being a sanctuary city. If you're not really willing to take the illegals in. You can't dump this on Del Rio, Texas, or McAllen, or any of these border towns along the Texas Mexico border or Arizona. You can't, you can't expect the rest of the country. To bear the brunt of this problem, step up Obama. You got your big fancy mansion on the water there in Martha's Vineyard. Maybe you could have a little tent city. You got lots of property. You have a huge mansion with huge lawn, got all kinds of space for illegals. Put your money where your mouth is. Progressives?

Nilsa Alvarez on the Horrifying Impact of Illegal Immigration
"Let's bite on the really big issue that I think may be one of the catalysts for people waking up and that's the border and that's illegal immigration. So the point I make as an immigrant illegal immigrant to the United States with regards to the 2 million illegal immigrants who've been led into the country in the last 15 months is the following. It doesn't matter whether it's 2 million or 20 million. At the end of the day, it's not going to really affect me in terms of my income. As a radio show host, I'm okay as a TV host, I'm okay. But it's the other legal immigrant who came in and has just started on the ladder of earning income legally whose most going to be hurt. It's the poorest legal immigrants from wherever they came from, black brown or what have you. Why? Because income somebody who says, oh really, that bus boy gets $15 an hour, I'll do it for 5 cash onto the table. So does the Hispanic community, is that a factor in their relationship to this issue of open borders that they understand the damage it does for the legal immigrant who's at the bottom of the earnings ladder? Well, there's just so many different factors that come in that weigh in on the immigration crisis and the way that the Hispanic community perceives it. So think about this. Those who reside on border towns, especially the Hispanics. Let's talk about the Hispanics, right? That reside on border towns and their legal legal Hispanic Americans. Their experience with what's happening at the border is even worse than anything that has to do with what you're saying about affecting income. There's actually worse things that are happening. For example, those in McAllen had have to they have had to foot the bill for every illegal crossing and their taxes, their local taxes went up so much because the illegal wave that of just undocumented people coming in, it overwhelmed their hospitals, it overwhelmed their school system to the point that their taxes kept going up. And that's because just recently, the experience, their first Republican being elected to

The U.S. Southern Border Sees Migrants Enter With NO Resistance
"Regarding the borders, this was on Fox News this morning. The thing that jumps off the page to me the most is that wild situation we saw in Del Rio over the summer with all those Haitians who showed up under the bridge you can pull up that video right here. Keep in mind, remember, the FAA had grounded our Fox News drone. So we went up in a Texas DPS helicopter and we were live on the air for about 30 minutes or so trying to show the country. What was happening on the ground in Del Rio and it was just a jaw dropping situation. We were watching thousands of people literally just walking across the dam in the Rio Grande and just showing up in the United States, no resistance whatsoever and then camping out underneath the bridge. We were watching these people just walking in from Mexico, no resistance on either side, and you can see the ground video we shot as well. 15,000 Haitians ended up showing up and camping out underneath that bridge looked like a third world refugee camp at some points and keep in mind DHS secretary of my orcas, he showed up he had a press conference out there and he said he put a message out saying, do not come, your journey will not succeed. You will not be allowed to stay. He then later admitted that more than 10,000 of those migrants were released into the country, pending their future court dates. Another thing that jumped out at the page, if we can pull up this video, this was from August in the city of McAllen. This was when the city literally had to build an emergency tent compound for COVID positive illegal immigrants. The reason they had to do it is because they said the federal government was releasing so many migrants in the city of McAllen, so many of them were testing positive for COVID-19. They just didn't have the infrastructure to house them, and there was a risk of them walking around in public, so they literally had to build this tent compound in the middle of a public park, and they'll do us park to house thousands of these COVID positive, illegal immigrants, keep in mind, the Catholic charity out there had been quietly trying to house COVID positive migrants in hotels without telling local cities, that all blew up when some of them went into a water burger and started coughing on

She couldn't point to any specific proof just that he had worn black pants like prese. Did she felt ashamed. For even voicing suspicion of the church and she kept quiet after that.

After getting her teaching credentials and college. She was also the first person in her family to attend college. Garza went onto teach second grade at thigpen. Elementary or some of her students came to school barefoot from the nearby border colonies. She spent her first paycheck on them. Buying them close in books with her. Kindness room was also liked and fashionable being elected secretary of the pta. At twenty five. She wrote to a friend in a letter. I've made quite a few friends this year in a much happier now than i've ever been her love. Life was also exciting. She'd been dating to men but was coy with her friend about one of them. I won't mention his name but we double dated the last time you were here. The other she wrote without much enthusiasm was an anglo boy not real handsome but cute and religious which is important. She noted that her ex-boyfriend had sent her several cards and a box of candy on valentine's day. I can't lie. I think of him often and wonderful. Ever get over him between you and me and the four walls she confided i pray constantly that if it be god's will i will get over him eventually. What happened mentioned yet.

Church and irene going to church which she did often was not a low key event. Everyone noticed her. Sometimes guys who are interested in her would attend mass just for the opportunity to be in her presence. The night before. Easter wasn't any different people. Remember all kinds of details about irene that you may not have. If she weren't irene she made the sign of the cross. She knelt by herself someone else recalls her asking if she could skip the line and confession because she was running late and yet no one ever saw her. Leave the church after that service as the night went on iran's parents i thought that she had stated church for midnight mass when irene didn't return home by three a m nicholson josephina went to the mcallen police department to report their daughter missing their inclination to go to. The police quickly was a good one the next morning easter sunday. The garcia family car was still parked down the street from the church. Two days later a pedestrian happened upon a single small high heeled shoe on the side of the road. It was slightly scuffed fashionable. Irene's family confirmed that she had worn the same shoot a confession after the shoe. Spotting more evidence was found by the hidalgo county sheriff's department who searched for any evidence of irene's whereabouts on horseback three hundred yards from the shoe. A black patent leather purse was found with irene's driver's license inside still farther north authorities found a piece of white lace crumpled in the brush.

The search for irene had become at the time and the most extensive investigation in the county's history a week later. The police received a call reporting.

The right side of her face was badly bruised and she had two black is the autopsy would later determine that irene had been beaten with a hard object and suffocated the body state of decomposition suggested that she had been dead for slightly fewer than four days and perhaps held captive for up to a day before her death. There was also speculation that she had been raped before death but after being comatose. Irene's brother-in-law who is the person charged with identifying irene's body at the morgue was so horrified by the sight that he reportedly ran from the room. Of course the media went ape.

I mean, look, if you set out to harm the United States of America, I don't know how you could do a better job than the bite administration is doing and eight months that they've been in power. And what's amazing is is that they've taken something and they have found a way to actually harm migrants and then harm the bury people in our country that they're supposed to protect at the same time. While pretending it somehow compassionate and we now as you just said, we have 10 or 11,000 people in Del Rio, a $10,000 way Haitians.

It's purposeful, and they're doing it in blatant disregard of the constitutional duty to defend the United States of America, they are failing to faithful sleep faithfully execute the laws of the United States.

More and more americans realized there is a border problem. The mcallen texas officials have mystery. These people are democrats. It's not like they're republicans these are actual democrats and they are beginning to complain. The biden administration is in fact leading cova. Positive people out illegal aliens with covert. They're requiring you to show a proof of vaccination to go somewhere and the illegals get to come across the united states covert positive and they release them onto the wiles of mcallen. Texas and voters are paying additional. You will notice. By the way that like kamla harris this too has largely disappeared from the mainstream media. But fox's covering it and most americans get their news from fox news or the internet and their friends. And so it's becoming a big issue and now jen psaki has waited on this at admits that yes.

Immigrants into mcallen texas international travel policy and that will be done through the prism of providing consistent guidance equitable guidance digestible guidance. And there's a lot of confusion about what the restrictions are now and you all have asked a lot of good questions about it because it feels inconsistent and it is but that's what our focus is so that is is certainly under consideration but it is under a a policy process review right now that i won't get ahead of myself As it relates to i know was also reporting about the vaccination of migrants. That's not what the doing there are ngos and other international organizations who are vaccinating migrants as they come across the border. Ns they work in partnership with us.

"Under joe biden comma harris and they don't care you take the city of mcallen releasing seven thousand illegal immigrants in the mcallen all of whom were positive with cove. Seven thousand. now he put. He does a good job of putting this in perspective of the town. What is seven thousand meena. The town of mcallen texas right wh- by the way mccowan has issued a state of emergency over this wonderful here. Here's a great perspective. And then put that in perspective. Macallan is a city its population is about one hundred forty one thousand that means five percent of the population of the city consists now of illegal immigrants who tested positive for kovin that joe biden comma. Harris are dumping their one after the other after the other because they won't enforce the law but it's not just texas also depositing large collections of illegal immigrants and depositing them in communities throughout the country. It's not just southern border states. Early this morning mckellen texas. There is a catholic charity there and this is how they get around it. They they bring all the illegal immigrants there and they drop them off literally buses pull up they tell him to get off the bus and the buses leave so the charity is overrun and last night they dumped an extra thousand but if the theory holds true that for every person who tests positive and who is contagious with cova they infect nine other people sixty three thousand people in texas have been infected. You just by this group. How how do we take them seriously. How do we take this administration. Seriously when they refused to close the border which we had before during during a pandemic. i don't know. I think it's more than irresponsible. I think it's diabolic. I think it's plant and then yesterday The biden administration came out and said well. Now we're thinking about vaccinating the people coming across the border. Well you've already let how many hundreds of thousands in that you've never tested. How many more variants to keep it going to keep it going until next year's midterm lock everybody out and again and do ballot harvesting know. Enough of this it's The way it is any made a great point here to talk about again. It's this connection between texas and florida because we're the freedom states early right where meat instead. What is joe biden. Do he lectures the state of texas. He lectures the state of florida. He cannot stand that are states are open. He cannot stand that our schools have been opening cannot stand that people are going back to work. It's much it. Well you know what in maybe it is taking a toll because the latest polls he's plummeting. He's drop like sixteen points like in a month. People aren't happy with what this administration is. Doing and i think polls are like months behind you know by the time you actually talk to somebody and you get the results. It's the mood is already changed. But he's on a downward trend and people aren't happy anywhere. And if those jenner in the mainstream media reporting that what are the real numbers so true i think is his approval. Ratings down like it's not low but i mean it's forty three percent compared to like fifty eight percent a month ago including among democrats. I mean there. I hear from a lot of democrats that are just displeased. It's well the problem. Is he flip flops. He doesn't stand by any decision or the administration doesn't who was ever making these decisions.

They are so confident in their own press releases and they own nonsense coming out of the new york times and the washington post. They think they're actually doing such a wonderful job. How could people not possibly support them but democrats almost always make this mistake. Governing for them is something they've never been good at because governing takes consensus. it takes perseverance. It takes focus. It takes the ability to take responsibility for your actions. Democrats are awful at governing. They're really good at running bureaucracies inefficiently for their own personal gain but as far as governing a state or a country that is a skill that most democrats do not have because for them governing takes looking at the world empirically through practical wisdom and using prudence and then putting forth public.

Did, you talk to him about it ever? Before thing you know I I yeah. I did when we first met I, said, you know. If you told your story would make a huge difference in the world and and. He was kind of fascinated by the idea really but his partner. Tom Clark. Said not until my mother. Dies. and. All I could think of was if I was fucking rock, Hudson. Which I tried briefly. I would be happy to tell my mother about it. and. She would probably be happy for me. See Me over the move.
