Omar Attacks After Texas Says No More Immigrants
Trump last year issued an executive order giving states that don’t want any more immigrants should not have to take them, the ones demanding open borders can take all the illegals themselves.
Texas became the first state to announce it will opt out of a federal refugee resettlement program in 2020 – a decision made possible by an executive order by President Trump.
This enraged Ilhan, she and other Democrats, while demanding we open our borders, don’t feel that any state should have a right to say that they don’t want any more illegals in their state.
Ilhan does not know history very well, this poem was written over slavery, not over immigration, it was not even part of the statue when it was built, it was added after the statue came here in pieces and the US was raising funds to build it.
What we are seeing is the typical hypocrisy of the left that we have come to expect. When Trump put into effect that all illegals would only go to sanctuary states, the Democrats threw a fit and challenged this in court, turns out what they demand from others they refuse to do themselves.
What is more poetic, Ilhan is now facing the same from her state. Omar has been vocal on the issue since Beltrami County, Minn., voted earlier this week to ban refugee resettlement, with some native Minnesotans citing rising crime rates and others claiming a lack of resources in the budget.
Last September, Trump signed an executive order requiring that resettlement agencies get written consent from state and local officials in any jurisdiction where they want to help resettle refugees beyond June 2020. The president cut the number of refugees allowed into the country for the 2020 fiscal year to a historic low of 18,000. About 30,000 refugees were resettled in the U.S. during the previous fiscal year.
Texas has large refugee populations in several of its cities and has long been a leader in settling refugees, taking in more than any other state during the 2018 governmental fiscal year, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Since the 2002 fiscal year, Texas has resettled an estimated 88,300 refugees, second only to California, according to the Pew Research Center.
“At this time, the state and non-profit organizations have a responsibility to dedicate available resources to those who are already here, including refugees, migrants, and the homeless – all Texans,” Abbott wrote, noting that his decision to opt-out of the initial refugee resettlement program for the 2020 fiscal year does not deny any refugee access to the U.S. and does not prevent any refugee from later coming to Texas after initially settling in another state.
What should not come as a surprise, the mayors of major Texas metropolitan areas, including San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston, which all have seen recent growing Democratic leadership, sent the federal government letters saying they remain willing to welcome refugees despite the state action.
“Regardless of where someone is from, who they are or what they believe, there is a home for them in Houston,” Mayor Sylvester Turner, a Democrat, said in a statement. “Our welcoming spirit has led to our city, becoming the national leader in refugee resettlement.”
Governors in 42 other states have said they will consent to allow in more refugees, according to the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, which works with local agencies throughout the U.S. to resettle refugees. The governors not yet on the record are all Republicans — from Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Wyoming.
