‘Get Your Sorry Butts Up And Leave’: Residents Blast City Council Over Possibility Of Migrants Coming From Denver | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Residents of the Denver, Colorado, suburb of Lakewood lashed out at the city council after it urged city staff to meet with the City of Denver's staff to discuss possible options for Lakewood to work with Denver on the migrant crisis.

    "Nearly 40,000 migrants have arrived in Denver over the past year, making a city with a population of just over 710,000 the top destination per capita for newly arrived migrants crossing the U.S. southern border and traveling north in buses," NBC News reported in late January. The cost of the migrant crisis in Denver is expected to be $180 million.

    On Monday night at the Lakewood city council meeting, one attendee held up a placard reading, "Not actively seeking sanctuary status while actively proposing to accept tax money to provide sanctuary to the unhoused is dishonest."

    "We do not want to be Denver," former Councilwoman Mary Janssen stated. "I live in Lakewood. When did we decide to give away our immigration laws?"

    A male attendee told the council, "This transfer station, which is gonna turn into a money pit and a magnet for every criminal that's coming across the border, don't we have enough problems in Lakewood without importing 'em from Denver who are saying, 'Yeah, Lakewood, you're stupid enough to take all of them. Take our problems, you dummies.' It's a money pit, and you guys are responsible for our money. Don't screw it up! This is going to be a money pit! Can't you guys think five minutes ahead? Do us a big favor and just quit. Get your sorry butts up and leave."


    "Any city resources, time, or money, focused on non-citizens, necessarily steals from our infrastructure, schools, security, and human services, And we are already doing our part as federal taxpayers," a female resident declared. "Colorado Springs has already told Denver, 'No migrants,' and you must do same."

    "The city manager and the city staff should be focused on the immediate needs of Lakewood," another attendee echoed. "Should residents who've lived here and paid taxes their entire lives have to worry if their car will still be in their driveway tomorrow morning when they get up to go to work? Should they worry about shoplifters who have no fear of shoplifting cartfuls of items out of stores while they pay for their groceries? Focus on being good neighbors and fixing what ails Lakewood first."


    "The last few years we've seen our quiet Lakewood suburb turn into a place where there's drugs, prostitution, and crime all over," another attendee added. "And we've seen increasing support for building facilities for the homeless but if we do that, we're going to become the center for Colorado to send their homeless. ... I'd love to hear the actions that you're gonna take to prevent a mass influx of migrants from coming into Lakewood; you could punish heavy drug use that we're seeing openly done at Colfax and on the light rail; you could take an active stance against human trafficking; what are all these seedy massage parlors everywhere?"

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?
  Not sure

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.

Understanding that there are two firm positions concerning the Open Border Crises, but many realties regarding its current, and, or projected real impacts to the functioning, sustainability of this Constitutional Republic: What position below best represents what you know to be true regarding this impactful policy?
  The United States' must continue the Executive initiative of Open Borders until a Democratic Congress can codify full Demographic Inclusion by keeping the Biden /Harris Open Borders policy in place.
  Our United States' borders are sovereign just as are our self-governed citizens, where borders must be maintained, monitored and defended, which is the position of core Republicans.
  I am in favor of Open Borders to make my America more of a global community; however, the federal government must now fix problems that "Red State" governors have caused in our cities.
  I do NOT favor the Democratic Socialists' disruption of the cultural fabric of my Representative Republic, and there will be Treasonous Hell to Pay when the certain calamity begins in earnest.
