    Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) accused Republican governors of violating "every basic standard of decency" by transporting migrants to sanctuary cities.

    Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday, Durbin railed against recent moves by Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) to relocate illegal immigrants from their states to heavily Democratic cities and Martha's Vineyard. While he did not know whether the governors had broken laws, Durbin attacked DeSantis and Abbott for "jeopardizing" the migrants' ability to remain in the country and allegedly breaking up families.

    "It is pathetic that these governors are taking advantage of these helpless people, making promises to them to 'get on the bus and life is just gonna be fine,' and off they go to places far removed from where they are supposed to be appearing under the requirements of our law in a matter of weeks and months," Durbin said. "So [they are] jeopardizing their stay in the United States when each governor makes this decision."

    "[W]hy is it that when the Republicans want to enforce their immigration theories, it's always the kids that end up being the victims?" said Durbin. "[O]nce again it's the kids and families that are put on these buses and transported for political purposes across the United States."

    "I don't know if laws were specifically broken, but they have broken every basic standard of decency when it comes to dealing with children and families," he added. "I just don't think that, when you get down to the basic rules of politics, this passes the smell test."

    Democrats have been in an uproar over the two governors sending buses and planeloads of migrants to Democratic-run sanctuary cities like Washington, D.C., Chicago, New York City, and most recently, Martha's Vineyard. However, they have not criticized leaders in Democrat-controlled El Paso, Texas, which has sent nearly 30 buses full of illegal immigrants to New York in the last month and are seeking reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the costs.

    DeSantis and Abbott fired back at critics in recent days. "[A]ll of those people in D.C. and New York were beating their chests when Trump was president, saying they were so proud to be sanctuary jurisdictions, saying how bad it was to have a secure border, the minute even a small fraction of what those border towns deal with every day is brought to their front door, they all of a sudden go berserk and they're so upset that this is happening," DeSantis said at a press conference Thursday. "It just shows you their virtue-signaling is a fraud."

    "We have small communities of about 25,000 people who have thousands of illegal immigrants dumped into their community," Abbott added in an interview with Fox News Friday. "And so, they were begging for relief. And that's exactly why we began this busing operation to Washington, D.C." Abbott also took aim at the Biden administration for failing to secure the border. "[I]f they will not go to the border, we're taking the border to them so they can see the challenges they're opposing to the entire United States of America," he said.

    The Biden administration has been busing and flying illegal immigrants who are awaiting asylum or deportation hearings to locations around the country for more than a year, the Wall Street Journal noted Friday.

In what may be the most divisive period in modern American History, even more divisive than the turbulent sixties due to today's lack of patriotism, consider what are the major catalysts causing so much of this calamity of conflict, and vote: What most instigates the division of America, on this day September 20, 2022?
  Racism within our society
  Sex realignment to the detriment of our society.
  Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Policy for the Demographic Upheaval of OUR Constitutional Republic
  Rampant Crime in Democratic controlled cities, and the possible contagion elsewhere
  Covid Pandemic, and its mishandling at the political, and bureaucratic levels.
  The unresolved questions /allegation regarding the flawed 2020 General Election
  January 6th Riot or "Armed Insurrection", depending upon patriotic perspective
  Joe Biden as Divisive Leader; Ineffective and Corrupt Executive
  Failed Education Industry, from an overall perspective, regarding all levels of education.
  Propagandistic Media in complete conflict with the First Amendment's guarantee of Freedom of Speech, and the awesome responsibility of a Free Press..
  "Orangeman Bad!"
  Bureaucracy rushing to a behemoth size, its unjustified expense, and far too often overreach.
  The Weaponized Deep State for political purposes
  A secular ambivalence to all that is real.
  Record number of overdose deaths from opioids and now Fentanyl
  Biden Administration's disastrous Foreign Policy
  Bidenflation /supply chain failure inevitably evolving into stagflation and recession.
  "Ultra MAGA Extremists" freely speaking louder AND LOUDER!

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.

Considering that Joe Biden is considered by so many to be the Imposter President: Is he actually knowledgeable enough, wise enough, patriotic enough to be this Constitutional Republic's president at this difficult point in these tumultuous times?
  Yes, Mr. Biden is thoughtful and kind, and just so different from the "Orange Man".
  No, this representation of "president" is either too corrupt, too stupid, or both to be a real president.
  I just want the fun guy, who knew how to make stuff work back.
