We need some excellent Spanish speaking Dems to visit ALL those asylum seekers that have

been transported to blue states and explain to them the actual situation, the real reasons for their transport, and why they should have no fear as true asylum seekers. They are not illegal immigrants until determined to be by our laws.

Next we need some wealthy liberal celebrities to contribute to efforts to house and feed these people until their processing is completed.

Rapid response translators and language teachers to help with basic English lessons.

Working together, we can turn DeSantis and Abbott lemons into sweet savory lemonade.

Time for Governors in blue states to begin setting up shelters and housing for migrants in red areas

of their states based on emergency disaster relief.

i am waiting for $millions to come in to Martha's Vineyard to help with the migrants and rebuild the

historical cottages and infrastructure there. Looks like they are now going to have the workforce to help get them rebuild and thrive even more. Waiting for the next planeload of able bodied migrants to be matched with skilled builders from all over. Last time I visited Oak Bluffs (a section of Martha's Vineyard) there were no haters anywhere in sight. These good people will make it all work out for the good of all involved.

Dos anyone have any inside dope from the 11th Circuit on what they think about

Cannon's decision. Any cocktail talk? There has to be some judges who think this shit is ridiculous.

Wow! I think April Ryan hit an inconvenient truth on the immigration issue.

She mentioned that the biggest problem with asylum seekers and immigration is not the people at the border but the people here who have overstayed their visas. She says the far outnumber the asylum seekers at our borders. The families of those visa folks are citizens and voters. Wonder if they realize that DeSantis and Abbott may be opening a can of worms with their antics transporting migrants to blue states?

Biden should announce a major plan to deal with immigration including visa violators.

Say what you will about Cannon's decision but the 11th will probably uphold her decision just to

prove a point that the Rethugs are in power now and there is nothing anyone can do about it. Garland will just have to bit the bullet and continue in defiance if go on to SCOTUS. If one asset is harmed by her ruling she should be impeached.

Trump destroys everyone he touches...and now that includes Putin. Xi can see the handwriting.

There is too much to lose if Xi cozies up any more to Putin. He may but it will have to be kept secret. And if Putin can't brag about any accomplishments Si won't be of much help. Xi would be better off dealing with Zelenski.

So who is now causing caravans to come to the US from south of the border?

DeSantis and Abbott. It really is enticing to learn that a trip to the US border might lead to free transport to a luxury vacation spot or the nation's Capitol. You mean the Dems can't counter with the meme that what these two deplorable governors are doing is not going to cause a new surge of immigrants? And guess what, there are plenty of jobs out there that they will be willing to take and keep. It's not like they are coming to the US when employment opportunities are dire. And maybe even business in the south and all red states will be suffering for want of workers as the jobs will probably follow the labor and vice versa.

Immigrants being shipped to Martha's Vineyard could do much worse. House should take money away from

states doing this and increase Federal payments to states receiving these immigrants and make this a part of immigration reform.

While the GOP will use this to pit some blacks against immigrants, it should give them more reason to vote against Republicans.

Also, the states receiving these relocated immigrants should seek and be granted disaster relief.

This also should turn a fair number of pretty well-off men and women of all stripes against the GOP.
