China Reacts to Texas and Open Borders
The feud between the US government and Texas has gained international attention. In China, social media users are enthralled with the legal battles, claiming America is at war with itself. “If the U.S. really pushes Texas back, then it will be great fun,” said one user on Weibo, as reported by Newsweek. “I hope both sides will not be cowardly and that they will fight to the end.” Another wrote:
“Every day you can hear the sound of the American empire crumbling.”
For the Chinese, it’s difficult to get accurate information because social media and news are so heavily regulated. It’s obvious, however, that the Chinese are very interested in what’s happening with our open borders policies. Wenhao Ma, a journalist who reports on Chinese online disinformation for Voice of America, a broadcast news network funded by the US government, wrote:
“Biggest US related news on China’s internet for the past few days is Texas governor declaring war with the federal government, which did not happen in reality. There is even a designated hashtag for it on Weibo. Netizens are cheering for what they call America’s self destruction.”
Airports Becoming Migrant Shelters
The migrant surge continues thanks to the Biden administration’s open borders policies. Cities are out of room, struggling to find shelters for all the undocumented as well as to support their own homeless populations. Police stations have been – and are still being – used to house people, but that’s not enough. Now even airports, such as Boston Logan International, have become a “de facto shelter,” raising concerns about security and safety.
Massachusetts has a state law that requires giving shelter to all eligible families, but “This is the first time in 40 years that state officials have been unable to provide that assistance immediately,” WBUR reported. For the past week, hundreds of people from Massachusetts Family Welcome Centers have been sent to Logan Airport for the night. Some have stayed there for more than a week.
Kelly Turley, associate director of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless, said: “We know that other individuals and families have used Logan Airport as an overnight accommodation, but we’ve never seen it to this scale … to see that Logan Airport has become a de facto shelter.” She imagines things will only get worse with the cold months. “During the winter with COVID, RSV, flu, common cold, it’s concerning that people would be in such close proximity,” she explained.
There’s also the matter of security. The airport has not hired any extra personnel, and there is less security at night when fewer folks travel. Adults and children are sleeping on blankets on the floor, in the chairs, and wherever they can find room while the normal flow of travelers continue to use the airport.
Migrants Booted for Non-Payment
In Washington State’s Greater Seattle Area, about 200 Venezuelan asylum seekers found themselves booted from a hotel in Kent for non-payment. The Quality Inn Hotel’s manager, Eli Min, said the credit card on file was repeatedly declined. “We took them without guaranteed payment or funding, and it was just because of the emergency cold weather.” At the beginning of January, the area experienced temperatures in the low teens for a few days in a row. The migrants were supposedly just there for the cold snap, but after three weeks and no payment, they were told to leave by January 30 and their room key cards were deactivated.
The evicted immigrants marched peacefully to Seattle City Hall on January 31 to request help, and the city came through with a week’s extension. “We were given deadlines and those promises were not met,” the hotel manager explained, “so ever since January 10th we have not received a single penny for everything so we have no resources.”
As President Joe Biden finally admits there’s a border crisis, the Chinese eagerly rub their hands together, waiting with bated breath for America to self-destruct. The overflow of illegal immigrants has gotten so out of hand that they are taking shelter in our airports, causing concerns over security. What will next week bring us in Open Borders America?
