Denver says they are full

Zam-Zam

It appears that Denver a sanctuary city (but not a right to shelter city) is full. They are now offering free bus tickets to send immigrants elsewhere. The border crisis is hitting more and more areas. THIS will be front and center at election time.
"Not in my backyard", etc.

Send them all to Washinton DC, specifically to the neighborhoods of the policy-makers.

I mean, why not?

The money will have to some from somewhere. So many of the sanctuary cities got what they championed for. Now, that it has hit home, they realize there is a crisis.

Gotta wonder why we can't review asylum laws. Trump had to use a Covid related rule to keep people out. That was a temporary fix and once Covid was not considered in pandemic, some other solution was needed.

We also have international treaties related to asylum. There are many countries who are overwhelmed with migrants and are probably bound by some of the same treaty obligations.

You should research what Sanctuary Cities are about. They want to limit where illegal immigrants can be detained. Hospitals, Courts, Schools and churches of off limits.

Does that make sense to you? It does to me.

That being the case, they should be happy to receive these folks so long as they are not detained in hospitals, courts, schools and churches, no?

It seems they are not so happy.

Being a sanctuary city has what to do with funds to house migrants?

We had an AirBnB property and were constantly threatened by proposed tax changes as well as city rules on how many days per month we could actually rent. Luckily none of those passed, but we sold the house because we could not count on the city or county being reasonable. They were primarily being driven by hotels in the area that didn't like the competition. No other reason.

This one in Colorado is bizarre. Real Estate taxes are set by the county. Why the state rep is pushing the bill doesn't make a lot of sense.

Why aren't the leftist that claim to have such BIG homes not taking the poor 'asylum' migrants into their homes, problem solved, NO.

There's a nice 320 acre ranch there in CO with 18 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms for sale for only $3.5M and w/own Western Town

How many homeless vets are staying at your house?

You listed (according to you) the criteria for being a sanctuary city.

If none of their (according to you) criteria is being violated, why would they object to migrants in their community?

I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive.

Because the only asylum law "review" the democrats will entertain is a vast increase in asylum awards. The "solution" is for democrats to agree to revoke the "asylum" laws and beef up border security and funding for deportations of the tens of millions of illegals already here.

Are you aware that the bill the republicans just killed (although a number of republican dirt bags supported) would take adjudication of "asylum" claims out of the court system and put bureaucrats in charge of evaluating claims? How many do you think they will turn down?

Where in the bill is asylum put into the hands of bureaucrats? The screening process does not grant asylum. It would eliminate those who are coming from countries with no history of persecution or those who have lived for years in countries other than their own and simply want to migrate for economic reasons. You anticipate no improvement, so why did republicans put that in?

Are you against beefing up border security? How about funding for deportations?

PS....is a judge a bureaucrat?

And yet GOP refuses to back any legislation to stop the flow of immigrants. Even when championed by a very conservative Republican US Senator. They can talk a lot of sh*t about the border on Fox and NewsMax every night but when it comes to taking any action, they won’t make any moves without checking with Donny Trump, a convicted sexual predator who is out on bail for 92 felonies….Cult anyone???

President Biden can close the border anytime he wants, and could have done so for the past three years. The Biden administration IS the reason for the border crisis and America knows it.
