Mayors Beg Obama To Stop Sending Them Illegal Aliens

From Reuters:

Mayors call on Congress to tackle illegal immigration

By Lisa Maria Garza | June 22, 2014

DALLAS (Reuters) – U.S. mayors on Sunday called for Congress to draw up bipartisan legislation to address a surge of illegal immigrants into the United States and asked for help to ease the resulting financial burden on local governments.

The U.S. Conference of Mayors said at their annual meeting in Dallas they are asking congressional Democrats and Republicans for legislation to increase border security and support city and state governments whose finances are being strained by costs associated to illegal immigration.

How many of these are mayors of ‘sanctuary cities’? Besides, we have been told by the former Mayor Bloomberg that illegal aliens are such a boon to the economy, we need to import them to our troubled cities, like Detroit. That illegal aliens are the only salvation for many troubled cities.

"Forget the D thing. Forget the R thing. This is an American issue," said Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait, a Republican and co-chair of the Immigration Reform Task Force, a bipartisan group within the United States Conference of Mayors.

Since October, 52,000 unaccompanied children have arrived on the U.S. border with Mexico, the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday, underscoring an immigration problem seen by the White House as a humanitarian crisis…

Once again, we never get the same number twice from the Obama administration. In fact, we never get the same number once.

And then there is this from an outraged Associated Press:

Massachusetts mayor: Stop sending my city refugees

By PAIGE SUTHERLAND | June 22, 2014

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts mayor is calling for an end to refugee resettlement in his city, saying Somali families are putting pressure on already strained services in Springfield, a onetime industrial center where nearly a third of the population lives below the poverty line.

Mayor Domenic Sarno is the latest mayor to decry refugee resettlement, joining counterparts in New Hampshire in Maine in largely rare tensions with the State Department, which helps resettle refugees in communities across America…

The AP never mentions it, but Mayor Sarno is a Democrat. He is also the son of (legal) Italian immigrants.

The mayor is drawing criticism from those who say this country has a moral obligation to help the outcast and refugees who say they’re being scapegoated for problems the city faced long before their arrival. "Why not talk about the problems in the city, why not talk about the houses that are unstable and in bad conditions, why only talk about the Somalis and Somali Bantus?" Mohammed Abdi, 72, said through an interpreter…

Mr. Abdi makes a great case. We need a lot more people like him. (And the majority of the rest of this AP article is quotes from people attacking Sarno’s lack of compassion and selfishness.)

Sarno, leader of the state’s third-largest city, first demanded last summer that the U.S. government stop sending refugees. But after recent inspections found Somali families living in overcrowded, pest-infested apartments without electricity and sometimes heat, he stepped up complaints, saying resettlement agencies are bringing in "warm-weather" refugees and dumping them into cold climates only to leave them dependent on the city.

"I have enough urban issues to deal with. Enough is enough," Sarno said in an interview. "You can’t keep concentrating poverty on top of poverty." …

Sure you can, if you are Obama. In fact, it’s just about the only way to grow the Democrat base.

    Memo to Mayor Domenic Sarno, Springfield, MA:

    Since the mid-19th century, Massachusetts has been dishing out mega-doses of Liberalism to the rest of the US. You guys practically wrote the Immigration and Nation-Destroying Act of 1965.

    So now we’re going to send you all the Somalis we can find. And all of Haiti and Bangladesh, too. So suck it up and stop your whining. Celebrate diversity, you jerks.

    What’s sauce for the goose, you know.
