Martha’s Vineyard is set to change its official name to NIMBY – not in my garden – Island, given the rapid deportation of 50 Venezuelan migrants last week.
Hoity-toity Democrats who own multimillion-dollar vacation homes in the exclusive enclave that voted overwhelmingly for Joe Biden in the 2020 election “by a 77.7% margin over 20, 6% of former President Trump” according to Fox News Digital, have now been exposed for what they are: virtue signaling imposters.
These liberal hypocrites claim to be “pro-diversity” and culturally “inclusive”. They claim to support “sanctuary cities” while placing signs on their manicured lawns that read “No Humans Are Illegal” and “Hate Has No Home Here” in an attempt to virtue-signal that they are morally superior to the “deplorables”. and the “racist” Trump supporters they despise as arrogant. Yet when dozens of desperate migrants recently showed up on their doorstep, they were no more welcoming to these so-called Dreamers than Trump supporters wearing a MAGA hat chanting “Build the Wall” at a Red State campaign rally.
The fact is, upon the arrival of the displaced migrants on NIMBY Island last Wednesday, the residents of Martha’s Vineyard called it a “humanitarian crisis” and immediately activated the Massachusetts National Guard who transported the undocumented immigrants to Joint Base Cape Cod faster than wealthy Biden donors can board their gas-guzzling private jets. No matter how CNN tries to spin it, or other left-leaning media to help the Democratic Party in future terms, the reality is that Hispanic immigrants were not welcome on NIMBY Island. They were not offered jobs, a place to live or the chance to start a new life.
They were arrested and deported to a military base on mainland Massachusetts within 48 hours.
Now remember, these are the same Democratic voters who branded former President Donald Trump every ugly smear in the book throughout his tenure in the White House for simply doing his constitutional duty by enforcing America’s laws on immigration and adopting sensible measures to secure the porous border. Despicably, liberals have accused Trump supporters (half the country) of being ‘white supremacists’ or ‘white nationalists’ for not supporting mass illegal immigration, no matter the cost . Yet as soon as these people were put on probation by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who ferried undocumented immigrants to NIMBY Island last week, Democrats made it clear they valued the walls as much. than their political counterparts.
If this was a political trap set by DeSantis to call out the Democrats’ bluff about whether they really supported illegal immigration when it affects their own neighborhoods, the Liberals walked right into it by kicking out migrants. They missed the moment. Democrats could have opened their doors and homes on the island and offered migrants jobs, friendship and a chance at the American dream. They could have taken the high road. Without a doubt, with all the millionaires and billionaires on the exclusive island and vacation rentals available, they certainly had the resources to do so.
This includes former President Barack Obama and his family who own a lavish $11.75 million beachfront on the island. Why didn’t they offer to erect a tent and build temporary housing on one acre of the nearly 30 acres they own there while the local community secures jobs and permanent housing for people in the need ? Why didn’t former Secretary of State John Kerry – who also owns a nearly $12 million 18.5-acre rectory on NIMBY Island – step in to help? Or other Hollywood Democratic elites who also own expensive homes there?
On Tuesday, Senate Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell weighed in on the recent migrant resettlement controversy led by frustrated Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Ron DeSantis and others. During a speech in the Senate on Tuesday, he said, “Out of desperation, a few governors along our southern border are now giving some Democratic-run states and cities a tiny glimpse of what border communities have endured, literally. , for years. These affluent blue enclaves are finally witnessing the smallest fraction of the challenges that open borders have imposed on working-class communities across our country.
It’s correct! Other border states in Texas, Arizona and elsewhere are dealing with thousands of illegal migrant encounters a day — not just a few dozen — that NIMBY Island has seen for just a few days. Border states are continually overrun and overwhelmed by the unprecedented wave of illegal immigrant encounters under the Biden administration, which has already topped 2 million this fiscal year.
Apparently the Liberals don’t care about the immigration crisis until it lands in their backyard. Then these imposters call the army for help and opt for deportation. You don’t say…
