New York City Mayor Eric Adams and other leaders of large liberal cities such as Muriel Bowser in Washington, DC, are furious that migrants are being sent to their cities from the southern border. Their plan, was simply to create open border policies and allow migrants to flood across the border and overwhelm those states’ resources; they never anticipated having to deal with any consequences.
Now that migrants are being taken to their cities, they are fuming and playing their favorite hand: the race card.
While a guest on MSNBC’s “The Cross Connection with Tiffany Cross”, Christina Greer, an associate professor of political science at Fordham University called Texans and Arizonans who support busing illegal immigrants to New York City “racists”
“Right, Jason, I mean, the conservative estimate is about $80,000 per bus trip. But we know that racists don’t mind paying this money,” Greer responded.
“We saw this with our parents and grandparents’ generations when schools were forced to integrate, and they refused, so they would ship African Americans to other states to attend college, because they didn’t want to integrate schools in say South Carolina, or Virginia, or Georgia,” she said.
“So, racists are willing to pay the money and they don’t care if taxpayers pay the brunt,” she continued. How novel, a Democrat concerned about taxpayers.
Greer said that, “I think what’s so disgusting about this is that decent people’s lives, just as Maria said, we have men, women, and children on a bus for days on end not knowing where they’re going and there is no coordination, we know that the governors of these states are only doing this to perform an act, just to try and appease their particular bases even though they’re costing their own taxpayers money.”
Greer argued that “the vast majority of Americas are descendants of people who came from countries like Italy, and Ireland, and Germany, and Poland who were treated in similar ways, but they have forgotten that history and that’s part of the problem of America in that we’re so ahistoric when it comes to how we treat immigrants and how we think about this nation of immigrants.”
“Just over 1,000 migrants have been bused so far to New York City. U.S. Customs and Border Protect saw nearly 200,000 migrant encounters in July” notes Fox News.

Multiple states launch lawsuit against Biden’s student-loan forgiveness plan
Breaking Thursday, the states of Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Iowa, and South Carolina joined together to file a lawsuit against President Biden’s administration in order to stop the student loan-forgiveness program from taking effect.
“In addition to being economically unwise and downright unfair, the Biden Administration’s Mass Debt Cancellation is yet another example in a long line of unlawful regulatory actions,” argued the plaintiffs in their filing.
The attorneys general spearheading the legal challenge also submit that “no statute permits President Biden to unilaterally relieve millions of individuals from their obligation to pay loans they voluntarily assumed.”
Biden, however, has argued that he is able to unilaterally cancel student debt to mitigate the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Specifically, writes National Review, a Department of Education memo released by his administration asserts that the HEROES Act, which passed in 2003 and allows the secretary of education to provide student-debt relief “in connection with a war or other military operation or national emergency,” provides the legal basis for the cancellation.
But, National Review notes that the plaintiffs point out that Biden declared in a recent 60 Minutes interview that “the pandemic is over.”
The legal brief also adds:
“The [HEROES] Act requires ED [Education Department] to tailor any waiver or modification as necessary to address the actual financial harm suffered by a borrower due to the relevant military operation or emergency… This relief comes to every borrower regardless of whether her income rose or fell during the pandemic or whether she is in a better position today as to her student loans than before the pandemic.”
Moreover, they argue that the HEROES Act was designed to allow the secretary to provide relief in individual cases with proper justification.
The first lawsuit against Biden’s executive order came Tuesday from the Pacific Legal Foundation:
“The administration has created new problems for borrowers in at least six states that tax loan cancellation as income. People like Plaintiff Frank Garrison will actually be worse off because of the cancellation. Indeed, Mr. Garrison will face immediate tax liability from the state of Indiana because of the automatic cancellation of a portion of his debt,” wrote PLF in their own brief.
The state-led lawsuit was filed in a federal district court in Missouri, and asks that the court “temporarily restrain and preliminarily and permanently enjoin implementation and enforcement of the Mass Debt Cancellation,” and declare that it “violates the separation of powers established by the U.S. Constitution,” as well as the Administrative Procedure Act.
