A Texas county attorney has dumped the Democrat party due to the unprecedented crisis at the Southern border, declaring GOP’s policies align with her values.
Kleberg County Attorney Kira Talip Sanchez announced her decision in a statement:
“As County Attorney, I have been proud to work with law enforcement to ensure the safety of the citizens of Kleberg County.”
“There is an unprecedented crisis at our southern border. I believe that the GOP’s policies of law and order protecting safety, and backing the blue best align with my values and the values of the citizens of Kleberg County,” she said.
“I look forward to working with my colleagues to keep South Texas safe.”
Sanchez’s announcement comes after Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported having 183,503 encounters with migrants in July, a jump of 38,000 from June.
Sanchez’s country borders the Gulf of Mexico, a two-and-a-half-hour drive from the Southern border.
The county voted for President Donald Trump in 2020.
As Breitbart noted:
“The Biden administration’s decision in May to lift Trump’s Covid-era Title 42 — which permitted U.S. officials to turn away migrants and asylum seekers to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus — has led to a crisis both along the Southern border. Since April 2022, Gov. Greg Abbott has been busing the migrants to sanctuary cities which include New York, Denver, Los Angeles, and Chicago.”
Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Eric Adams planned to house the overwhelming numbers of migrants in shipping containers.
Since 2022, around 100,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have arrived in New York City, as Adams seeks to bus migrants out into the surrounding suburbs.
Earlier this month, Adams sounded the alarm as thousands of migrants continued to flood the city, demanding Joe Biden declare a national emergency at the border.
In a briefing about the state of the city’s finances, Adams warned the influx of migrants could cost the city $12 billion.
“So we continue to do an average of twenty-five hundred a week, five thousand every two weeks, ten thousand a month,” Adams said.
“You don’t have to be a mathematician to understand what this is doing to our city,” he said.
There are 57,300 migrants in the city, with an estimated 100,000 that will need services by June 2025.
Adams admitted that the massive increase in migrants could cost the city as much as $12 billion over the next three years.
