Sanctuary City Denver is in a panic because migrants are once again pouring over President Biden’s open border after amnesty was announced for half a million Venezuelans already here abusing the asylum system.
Only Sanctuary City is not miffed with Biden for smashing the already fragile immigration system to create chaos and gain a half million new voters.
It’s Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s fault for not being able to handle the influx of 50,000 border crashers just in the last week.

No, Denver isn’t mad at the progressive advocates who have helped some 20,000 migrants make their way here since December.
It’s the 1,500 migrants Abbott sent us in May, and the recent busloads carrying about 300 migrants that has noses tweaked.
Because that’s a political statement, insists the Denver Post:
Abbott and other Republican governors have been busing migrants arriving in their states to states and cities led by Democratic leaders, in part to make a political statement.
Abbott’s so-called political statement is that Texas can’t handle the burden alone and is sending migrants to sanctuary cities where they are welcomed.
“President Biden’s continued refusal to secure our border invites thousands of illegal crossings into Texas and our nation each day,” said Governor Abbott. “Texas communities like Eagle Pass and El Paso should not have to shoulder the unprecedented surge of illegal immigration caused by President Biden’s reckless open border policies. I have directed the Texas Division of Emergency Management to deploy additional buses to send these migrants to self-declared sanctuary cities and provide much-needed relief to our overrun border towns.
Until President Biden upholds his constitutional duty to secure America’s southern border, Texas will continue to deploy as many buses as needed to relieve the strain caused by the surge of illegal crossings.”
But because sanctuary cities are mostly run by Democrat mayors, and Abbott is a Republican, it’s okay for Coloradans to get miffed at the uptick in migrants using sources normally reserved for the homeless, the Denver Post implies.
And by the way, Johnston wants to permanently fund migrant resources to keep migrants migrating through Denver on their own.
But when that one percent of migrants bused here by Texas taxpayers arrives, the Denver Post will let readers know who’s to blame.
And it won’t be Biden.
