President Biden enraged Twitter users when he didn’t recognize the 77th anniversary of D-Day Sunday.

Biden didn’t tweet or put out an official statement to commemorate the WWII event. Yet in the past, he recognized Pride month, Asian American and Pacific Islander month, and also the anniversary of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Newsmax anchor Benny Johnson pointed out Biden’s neglect Monday morning. He called the faux pas “a disgrace.”

But Vice President Harris remembered the date, and tweeted about the historical event on its anniversary. “We will never forget their courage and sacrifice.”

Even the First Lady, Dr. Jill Biden remembered to commemorate the anniversary. She also echoed Harris’ tweet, writing “Let us never forget those who fought, their families, or sacrifices, and let us always pray for peace.”

Apparently, Biden and his social media team must have thought that was enough.

Liberal, self-described ‘sanctuary city’ Denver, Colorado is paying for illegal immigrants to travel to Utah, according to Republican Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox.

“We recently learned that the Democrat mayor of Denver has been sending illegal immigrants to Utah without proper notification or approval,” Republican Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox wrote Friday on X. “This is completely unacceptable and follows on the failed catch-and-release policy of the Biden administration.”

Without the approval or advance knowledge of local officials, Denver has been paying for migrants to relocate to other places, including Utah, where approximately 2,000 have been sent, 2KUTV News reported Thursday. Cox said Friday the practice is “unacceptable” and a result of the Biden administration’s immigration policies.

Cox wrote that Utah’s resources “are completely depleted.” His office told Fox 13 News they learned about the city sending migrants on May 13.

“All 50 states, including Utah, are now border states due to the failed immigration policies of President Biden and Congress,” Cox continued. “Once again we call on the Biden administration and Congress to solve this crisis.”

Denver city officials are not blaming the Biden administration’s horrendous open border policies for the overwhelming issue; rather, they blame Texas.

Officials told Axios Friday: “The vast majority of newcomers arriving in Denver do so on buses chartered from Texas and had no intention of ever coming to Denver,” Jordan Fuja, spokesperson for Democratic Denver Mayor Mike Johnston, told Axios. “That’s why part of our operations include purchasing tickets for newcomers to get to their desired location.”

Government officials in Salt Lake City, Utah also were not made aware in advance of the migrants’ arrival, the city mayor’s office told 2KUTV News.

“I have, myself, communicated our displeasure,” Andrew Roberts, chief of staff for Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson, told the outlet.
