Texas Democratic Mayor says she SUPPORTS GOP governors

A Democratic mayor in Texas says she supports the Republican governor’s decision to bus illegal migrants to liberal sanctuary cities – and insisted those resettled were never lied to about their ultimate destination.

Yolanda Ramon, Mayor of Eagle Pass, Texas, said migrants she’s met who have entered the United States are often just looking for a way to get further from the border and would appreciate the help to get there .

She told Fox News she agrees with moves by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to move migrants to so-called shelter cities like New York and Chicago, as well as chic and spiffy Martha’s Vineyard.

She also said that they often don’t know how far away other cities are when they arrive in the country, which is why they are often willing to accept offers of free transportation to northern cities.

‘I can tell you one thing, you won’t be lied to. If you meet them at the gas station, they tell you I just want to go somewhere. I just want to keep going north,’ Ramon said.

“Sometimes they don’t even know where they are,” she continued. “You will ask how far is San Antonio? How far away is Houston? How far is New York?’

She told Fox News that illegal immigration is the “most pressing problem” in the city of Eagle Pass, which sits right on the US-Mexico border.

Ramon’s comments stand in stark contrast to those of many of her Democrats who have accused Abbott and DeSantis of human trafficking and extreme cruelty.

GOP lawmakers say they are keen to give liberal cities that support uncontrolled immigration a taste of what life is like along the southern border, where hundreds of thousands of people are caught crossing each month.

Ramon’s comments come as the US-Mexico border is increasingly strained by an influx of immigrants and many Republican politicians have taken to busing or flying illegal immigrants to Democratic safe haven cities.

Ramon called the situation “weird,” adding that illegal immigrants “undoubtedly know where they’re going” when they’re offered rides to these cities.

“Of course they know where they’re going, otherwise they wouldn’t be going,” Ramon said.

She said immigrants are likely to think, ‘You know what, if I don’t have to walk 200 miles to San Antonio and I can hop on a bus and this bus takes me closer to my destination, let me hop on that bus.’

The Democratic leadership is struggling to deal with the immigrants that are pouring into their cities; New York City Mayor Eric Adams was recently forced to use a cruise ship as an immigrant processing center.

Texas has bused more than 10,000 migrants into blue cities, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey have followed suit.

In a particularly brazen act, DeSantis flew about 50 Venezuelan migrants to the Democrats’ vacation hideaway in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.

About 15,500 migrants have made their way to New York, according to City Hall estimates, with Adams predicting a surge of 75,000 that would strain the shelter system to the “load point.”

In the past 11 months, border officials in the United States have detained more than 2 million illegal immigrants at the southern border, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

In August alone, CBP encountered 203,597 migrants at the southern border, a slight increase from July’s crossings.

As of October 2021, CBP has recorded encounters with 2,150,639 migrants who have crossed the border from Mexico — and has encountered more than 3.5 million since Biden took office.

Republicans have chastised the Biden administration for ignoring the ongoing crisis, especially as deaths along the border have hit record numbers.

In September, preliminary figures show 30 migrants have died along the border – adding to the total of 782 deaths in 2022.
