By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Yuma, a city on the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona, declared a state of emergency Tuesday, saying it cannot handle the crush of illegal immigrants the government is being forced to release onto its streets.

Mayor Douglas Nicholls said the migrants are being released by the Border Patrol into his community faster than they can leave, and local shelters are already at capacity.

He warned of mobs of people “roaming the streets looking to satisfy basic human needs,” clashing with citizens looking to protect their own property.

“There is an imminent threat on having too many migrant releases into our community,” he said. “It’s above our capacity as a community to sustain.”

But there is no "emergency at the border people..." "Nothing to see here, move on..."

Illegal immigration is an emergency, more so because democrats/the left have demanded and made possible for the "catch and release" policy to continue to occur, which only exacerbates the problems and increases crimes in these cities.

It seems as if the left/liberals/democrats/socialists/communists etc want to convert every state in the U.S. into California hellhole...

Send them to California, they have sanctuary cities there. People in California want more illegals there so supply them with more instead of torturing Arizona people.

People are going to start getting killed (as if they haven't already) with more and more frequency.

The left will continue to do nothing but enable and make excuses.

They will have blood on their hands, and they better be careful because Americans are becoming increasingly intolerant of their treasonous bulls#.

Yuma is already half in CA pretty much.

And why arn't they being taken to sanctuary cities?

Unfortunately, this will worsen around the border until the crime becomes unbearable. When the states lose their ability to control the situation, the governor will ask the President for help. He will then, finally, call a national emergency and the national guard. Then, we are at war.

What will Pelosi do, then?

No they don't. Cali already votes blue.

Send them to those red states so they can have their very own emergencies too


It would be cruel otherwise!

I don't get it. It is said that 100,000 people came into this country illegally in one month. This is said to be the people we know of. We really don't know the true number. I don't know about anyone else, but that's the size of a small city.

I wish there were videos of all these people crossing the border.
Is YouTube taking them down or what.

Of course they are. This has already been an issue with Arizona, they cross the border stock up on American products and cross back over to resell. Most people in Arizona do not care for them. I guarantee that MS 13 is already in Phoenix and Tuscon. When I lived in Sierra Vista, we had a drug and gang problem, all of them were from illegals.

Why would the Democrats want to stop future voters?

Next step is to organize and mobilize citizen militias numbering at least in the 3-5 million range. These would report directly to the President, and be totally outside any other chain of command. Possibly exempted from certain oversight by Presidential order given under one of his many emergency powers. Those attempting to abuse the legal system to thwart this lawful group could be designated "Unlawful enemy combatants" and held at special detainment sites until they get a trial (at some point in the future, anyhow)

Remember, it was legal when Lincoln suspended Habeus Corpus.

Give shoot to stop orders. Militiamen and women would mask up, being totally anonymous and without oversight or fear of retribution. Strength in numbers, legitimized by Presidential authority/order.

Problem will auto-resolve once a few examples are made.

So let's say California is already horribly polluted and the other states not so much. Your idea is to pollute all the states until they are all as bad as California?

Actually a simpler fix would be for Arizona to exert it's delegated power in the Constitution.

Article 1 sec. 10.
No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.

The Governor declares the immigrant invasion a "emergency" and calls up the National Guard and state police. Illegals are rounded up and deported back to Mexico. Problem solved.

While the Washington Times is a notoriously right wing scare machine owned by the ultra conservative Unification Church who follow the dead Korean Messiah Sun Myung Moon who bought that paper to further his right wing agenda, here the publish a story somewhat approaching the truth.

However a quick check of other sources, one that is on the opposite side of the political spectrum we find a quote that was not so easily found in the Times article. Here from CNN is this.


Despite the dire language in the proclamation, Nicholls told CNN affiliate KYMA he doesn't believe the migrants are a danger to the community. The goal, he says, is to get more resources to Yuma to help manage the situation.
"Every person that has been released to us has had a background check and has a health check. They are not just adult males, they would be in family units," Nicholls said. "We are not anticipating large-scale crime issues. We are not anticipating situations that would make Yuma a dangerous place."


www.cnn.com...

The mayor sees no danger to the community
The mayor wants federal help to organize these releases
All released migrants have had background checks
Not all are adult males
The mayor is not anticipating large scale crime issues.
THey are not anticipating Yuma becoming a dangerous place.

And thank you for helping me see that I was not just imagining the overly sensationalist nature of that article in the Times.

CNN? For news? Still? Why? I think a news source closer to the topic might be helpful. There are plenty and they all say the same thing, Yuma is overwhelmed by illegal aliens and is asking for help.
