The situation in San Diego, California is getting out of hand. Thousands of immigrants have entered the United States illegally and are being dropped off on the streets with no plans for where they will stay. Thanks to the U.S. government, who apparently thought it would be a great idea to use an unmarked white bus to transport these illegal immigrants, the streets of San Diego have become makeshift homes for these individuals. Isn’t that just wonderful?
How One California City Is Handling the Illegal Immigration Crisis

The shelters in the area are completely overwhelmed and have reached their maximum capacity. As a result, these migrants are being left at bus stops, train stations, and other public places. This chaotic scene has prompted county officials to declare it a humanitarian crisis. Can you believe it? We have reached a point where we have to address our own backyard crisis caused by illegal immigration.
Lindsay Toczylowski, the executive director for the Immigrant Defenders Law Center, expressed her frustration with the situation. She explained that some of these immigrants are being dropped off with nothing but the clothes on their backs. But instead of addressing the root cause of the problem, her organization is finding beds for these folks in hotels and in the homes of some misguided volunteers. This is an absolute mockery of our immigration laws. Why should we reward these individuals for breaking the rules?
And it doesn’t end there. Some of these immigrants are being put on buses and sent off to the airport to fly to places like New York. Yes, that’s right, we’re just shipping them off to other cities so they can become their problem now. Chicago and New York City are among the lucky recipients of this irresponsible and haphazard approach to immigration.
One individual named Mohamed Aweineny shared his story of how he came to the U.S. illegally and his hopes for a better life. Well, Mohamed, I hate to break it to you, but we have millions of hardworking American citizens who are struggling to find jobs and live the good life you’re looking for. It’s just not fair to prioritize the needs of those who broke the law over those who have followed the rules.
Thankfully, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors has unanimously approved a letter asking for help from federal officials. Supervisor Jim Desmond, a Republican, rightly pointed out that San Diego is diverting funds meant for the local homeless population to deal with this crisis. It’s a difficult choice to make, but we can’t ignore the needs of our own citizens in order to cater to those who have entered our country illegally.
It’s time for our government to take action and secure our borders. We cannot continue to tolerate this influx of illegal immigrants and the strain it places on our communities. Compassion and empathy are important, but they cannot come at the expense of our own citizens. It’s time to put America first and prioritize the needs of our own people.
