(RepublicanWire.org) – Appearing with guest-host Gregg Jarrett on Fox News’s “Hannity” on Wednesday, San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond noted that Border Patrol can only detain the asylum seekers for so long before they are forced to release them into the interior of the United States.
“These people are bewildered,” Desmond said of the migrants. “They don’t have any money for tickets or means of figuring out a system to get to family or get in touch with their loved ones. You know, they’re just dropping them off.”
“‘Tis the season, there’s no room at the inn,” he said, referring to the county’s already full shelters.
“We’re at max capacity,” Desmond said. “And so Border Patrol is just dropping people at transit centers and saying, ‘see you later, good luck.’”
In his inauguration speech in January 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom vowed that the Golden State would be a “sanctuary to all who seek it.”
“We will not have one house for the rich and one for the poor, or one for the native-born and one for the rest,” he grandly stated. “We will build one house for one California.”
But according to Desmond, Newsom isn’t living up to that promise.
“Governor Newsom has invited them all. So we got them,” he said. “But we’re not getting any help from the state government either. So we’re at capacity, and it’s just terrible for these people.”
Even Newsom knows he can’t deliver.
As BizPac Review reported, Newsom took a trip to the state’s border with Mexico and stated that California’s current system of coping with the swarm of migrants his own progressive policies have encouraged will “break” when Title 42 — a policy implemented by former President Donald Trump that requires asylum seekers to stay in Mexico while their case is being reviewed — is lifted.
