Democrats attacked GOP governors for busing migrants. Now a dem governor is transporting migrants to the big cities.

For months, Democrats have criticized Republican governors for busing migrants off the border, accusing them of cruel acts that exploit vulnerable migrants.

But Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, a Democrat, has been hauling migrants out of the Centennial State for weeks. His operation became public after New York Mayor Eric Adams (D) complained that Polis was sending more migrants to the Big Apple.

What did Adams say?

Adams complained Tuesday that his office was notified Monday that Colorado would be sending migrants to major cities like New York and Chicago.

“We were informed yesterday that the governor of Colorado has now said he will be sending migrants to places like New York and Chicago,” Adams told the New York Post reported. “It is simply unfair that local governments have to take on this national obligation. We’ve done our job. There is no more room in the inn.”

What did Polis say?

polis confirmed the plan with Politicoand states that Colorado officials have allocated $4 million in funding to help with the migrant crisis.

In fact, Polis announced that Colorado has been transporting migrants for weeks. There are only a larger number leaving the state now, with many stuck in the state for several weeks due to severe winter weather.

“Right now there’s a lot of pent-up demand and a lot of frustration among our migrants who have been stuck for a week or two in a place where through no fault of their own they didn’t want to be,” Polis told Politico.

After to AxiosPolis justifies the migrant transport because the vast majority of migrants do not want to stay in Colorado. He helps them reach their ultimate goal, he said. This motivation is perfectly reasonable, of course, and is the same one that Republican governors cite when asked to explain their decision to migrants in major cities.

Still, Polis suggested that migrant transportation in Colorado was somehow different than in some other states — without any evidence, of course.

“Too many people, in our opinion, are looking at this through a political lens or as playing politics — and it’s appalling that in some places people have been used as political props,” he told Politico. “But what we’re doing here is just honoring our values ​​by treating people with dignity and respect.”
