Two comments… first, note the hypocrisy of the Democrats who run NYC. Second, I don’t care about Mohamed’s plight. He shouldn’t be here. The fact that he managed to go from Africa to Mexico and then illegally cross our border and make his way to New York does not make his problems America’s problems. Also note that, once again, we have a single man of military age illegally crossing our border. Millions of them are now saturating our society. There are consequences for allowing that.
NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) — Before he left Mauritania, the West African nation of his birth, Mohamed thought of New York as a place of “open arms,” a refuge for immigrants fleeing dire circumstances.
Now that he’s here, seeking political asylum from a government he feared would kill him, he doesn’t feel welcome. The 19-year-old has become a pawn in an escalating stand-off between New York City and suburban and upstate communities, which are using lawsuits, emergency orders and political pressure to keep people like him out.
After a journey that took him across the U.S. border with Mexico, he landed in a shelter system in New York City he found frightening and overcrowded. In one Brooklyn shelter, a room with 40 beds, someone stole his few remaining possessions as he slept.
So when outreach workers offered him the chance to relocate earlier this month, promising more space and chances to work, Mohamed took it. He joined other asylum seekers at two hotels a few miles outside the small Hudson River Valley city of Newburgh, about two hours north of the city.
Remember when Trump was mocked by the Elite Left for saying that Africans are crossing the Mexico / US border illegally? Pepperidge Farm remembers too.
Resent Mohamed’s existence all you want, but for all practical purposes he’s here to stay, legal or not. We’ve lost the arguments over whether or not he should be here. You can certainly continue to waste energy lamenting those lost arguments, but wouldn’t that energy be better directed at what’s to be done with Mohamed? Dems broke it. The Pubbies better come up with a plan for fixing that… and a lot of other things. Finger pointing isn’t going to get them elected.
