Try this with a down payment on a home: “I know you’re asking for $120,000, but $15,000 is nothing to sniff at. And I’m getting $1,400 in tax rebates from the federal government.” Behar then, yet again, went on to confuse exactly what political parties were in play here, asking faux Republican Alyssa Farah Griffin: “My understanding of the Republican Party and the conservative movement is all about states’ rights and states. So, all of a sudden they want help from the federal government. How come?” The Republicans, just so we’re clear, control no significant organ of governmental leverage in New York City or New York state. Griffin didn’t bother setting Behar straight on this, saying that “I think that New York is finally getting a small taste of what border states have dealt with for decades. “And this is a Biden problem right now because he’s the president,” she said. “This was an issue under Trump. This has been an issue for 25-plus years … I believe immigration makes this country stronger but we need legal immigration. We need a system that actually works.” “We used to have it,” Behar said. Yes, when border laws were enforced and immigration was legal, as Griffin just said.
Racist Sunny Hostin decries Adams and his concerns about the illegals swarming New York City (where she does not live). “I thought this country with its big Statue of Liberty…is supposed to be the country that accepts people…” She also dismisses his request for more money. pic.twitter.com/DxjCWupVpu— Nicholas Fondacaro (@NickFondacaro) September 8, 2023
The flibbertigibbet phalanx then went on to discuss whether fentanyl trafficking was also part of the issue when it came to the border crisis (spoiler alert: not to anyone but Griffin) and then what to do with the illegal immigrants who are choking social services in border states and major cities. Conclusion: Someone should do something to resettle them somewhere. Why hasn’t anyone thought of this? “We’ve dealt with this before. I lived in Miami. I was a migrant, an immigrant in Miami in the ’80s. You’ll remember when we had the Mariel Boatlift,” Navarro said, where “125,000 Cubans came in a matter of six months. It puts tremendous stress on a city, on a community, on the social services. They need to be resettled elsewhere.” “They need to be spread out. This is a massive country,” co-host Sara Haines said. “And it’s only going to get worse with global warming and climate change because people can’t live in certain parts of this world,” Behar added.
Joy goes on to argue that we should not talk about drug trafficking when we discuss securing the border: ALYSSA: Fentanyl comes across the border. That’s killing tens of millions of Americans. BEHAR: That’s different, though. I don’t think you should put those together. pic.twitter.com/w1RGKAjVyU— Nicholas Fondacaro (@NickFondacaro) September 8, 2023
The full exchange, for those of you who can stand watching it in longer portions without risking an aneurysm from the inanity, is here:
“They need to be resettled elsewhere” The View calls for the illegals in New York City to be dumped in other communities across the U.S. because “this is a massive country.” pic.twitter.com/3bhCpLXXvi— Nicholas Fondacaro (@NickFondacaro) September 8, 2023
Now. here’s where we get to the part where logic comes in: How, pray tell, are these immigrants going to be resettled in other areas of the country? Will it be by Adam Smith’s invisible hand of illegal immigrant redistribution? No, of course not. Nor is there any non-governmental organization with the kind of resources to make this happen. What will happen instead is that the federal government will be tasked with the solution. But the federal government has had the solution in its hands for decades: border security plus a path to legal immigration. Democrats have welcomed illegal migration because they believe it helps them at the polls — both in terms of Latino activist groups and future demographic shift. Republicans have tried, somewhat halfheartedly, to stem the tide with little effect. The party’s pro-big-business establishment wing only makes a show of an effort because they like the lower labor costs illegal immigration provides. But this is the federal apparatus “The View” believes can redistribute massive amounts of illegal immigrants to our massive country — where, of course, there will be economic opportunity for them in the middle of the empty Moab Desert, right? No, of course not. They’ll end up in big cities like New York and towns along the border. And just like now, those cities and towns will end up footing most of the bill, because the federal government’s helping hand only goes so far. So, to sum up “The View” and their position: Mayor Adams is being dramatic, but at least they acknowledge there’s a problem (unexpectedly). Fear not, though, for theiy they have a solution … which Mayor Adams and scores of other mayors will be equally (and rightfully) dramatic about when the costs and externalities of the mass resettlement of illegal migrants hits home. You’re welcome, America. If you have any further problems that need addressing, please be sure to send them to “The View,” the daily talk-show think-tank the country didn’t even know it needed.
