Gov. Newsom Calls on DOJ to Charge Florida and Texas Govs with ‘Kidnapping’ for Shipping Immigrants Out of State

Who is the real threat to Democracy?

By Katy Grimes, September 16, 2022 7:51 am

California Gov. Gavin Newsom called on the Department of Justice to charge Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis with kidnapping for sending illegal immigrants to other parts of the country.

Governors Abbott and DeSantis have been sending illegal immigrants who have illegally crossed the U.S. border to Sanctuary Cities Chicago, Martha’s Vineyard, Washington D.C. and New York City. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott even sent two buses of immigrants to Washington, D.C. to Vice President Kamala Harris’ D.C. home.

This sparked outrage from Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot who “slammed rival Abbott on several occasions for not having ‘any morals, humanity or shame,'” the Daily Mail reported. Lightfoot then sent the illegal immigrants to neighboring Republican suburbs.

Chicago became a sanctuary city in 2012 when then-Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the City Council passed the Welcoming City Ordinance, the Daily Mail reported.

In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Newsom asked whether actions by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sending illegal immigrants from their respective states to destinations such as New York City, Washington, D.C. Chicago, and Martha’s Vineyard were illegal, the Sacramento Bee reported.

“Its disgraceful, it’s repugnant and it’s illegal,” Newsom told the Bee.

But none of the Sanctuary city mayors or Newsom acknowledge that the Biden administration has been sending illegal immigrants around the country on planes in the middle of the night, and dumping them off to fend for themselves.

The Bee continued:

Newsom called DeSantis and his fellow GOP governors “functional authoritarians,” and said that the Republican Party “has crossed the rubicon of any decency.” The decision to fly the families to Martha’s Vineyard – the small, posh island off the coast of Massachusetts – was simply to “transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary destinations,” Taryn Fenske, DeSantis’ communications director, said on Wednesday. Earlier this year, DeSantis advocated the Republican-led Florida Legislature to set aside $12 million for this exact purpose.

The lack of self-awareness of the Sanctuary City Mayors and Gov. Newsom is striking. Their fabricated concern for the welfare of the illegal immigrants only surfaced when Governors Abbott and DeSantis started sending them to cities around the country.

And notably, not one of the Sanctuary City Mayors or Gov. Newsom has actually addressed the millions of illegal immigrants who have crossed the southern border. Instead they aimed their dishonest judgement at DeSantis and Abbott for what they claim is a “humanitarian crisis.” But apparently it’s not enough of a “humanitarian crisis” to stop the flow of illegal immigrants at the border.

Gov. DeSantis slammed Democrats and the “sanctuary jurisdictions” they run for going “berserk” over his move to ship dozens of migrants out of his state to Martha’s Vineyard — and accused them of engaging in phony “virtue signaling,” the New York Post reported.

The GOP is “100 percent” a threat to democracy, Newsom said, adding to the intentional hyperbole of the left trying to paint Republicans as modern day war criminals. The election “is a profound and existential moment” for the Democratic party. “Democracy is at risk with functional authoritarians,” Newsom said of the GOP on Thursday.

“The true emergency is on our nation’s southern border—not in our nation’s capital—where small Texas border towns are overrun and overwhelmed by hundreds of migrants every single day as the Biden Administration dumps them in their communities,” Abbott’s press secretary Renae Eze said in a statement to The Texas Tribune. “Instead of fearmongering and complaining about a few thousand migrants in her sanctuary city, Mayor Bowser should call on President Biden to do his job and secure the border—something the President continues failing to do.”

So who is the real threat to Democracy – the Republican Governors who now have the attention of the nation of the actual humanitarian crisis, which is at the border, or the Biden Administration which has rolled out the red carpet to more than 2 million illegal immigrants just this fiscal year, and nearly 4 million total since Biden was elected? Where do the Biden Administration and Democrats think these people will go – and do they even care, or is this just another way to destabilize the United States, which appears to be their goal?

  1. Well that must mean that we have no problems here in California if the governor as the time and motivation to be concerned about what Florida and Texas are doing. Good to know the power grid is taken care of, the homeless and drug addicts are being cared for, that there is no longer a crime issue, housing is affordable, the water storage and fire danger is over, etc… Maybe he should look into running for governor of Texas or Florida if he so concerned about how they handle their state. Just saying

  2. Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom is one of Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum globalist flunkies and he’s intent on destroying the USA just like he has California. Gavin Newsom should be hauled before a tribunal and be held accountable for his crimes against humanity. He imposed medical tyranny, he locked down Californians while exempting himself and his Democrat cronies, and he mandated experimental mRNA shots that have killed and injured thousands.

  3. ^^^ Two SUPER INSIGHTFUL posts and THANK YOU for stating & sharing my sentiments…

    This WEF minion is obviously trying to play the press for all of his 2024 Presidential power aspirations, but I sense that it will probably blow up in his face, because the rest of the states ARE NOT San Franfreakshow (thank GOODNESS!!!) and this shameless political posturing will count AGAINST him in the heartland and where sane Americans still live that aren’t sold out to the Bilderbergs/Klaus Schwab/Communist Chinese/Globalists (take your pick – I don’t swim in those pools)
    He thinks he’s too smart for the room, but once people catch of whiff of his special brand of malevolence, he’s “not gonna play in Peoria”…

  4. Perfect synopsis, Katy. Newsom was so excited to engage his POV, he never considered what Biden’s DHS has done and continues doing with night flights and bussing of illegals. He’s also disrespectful of Governors in border states who have contended with the issue (2 million border crossings) from the beginning. Never considered sending them assistance of any kind to curtail the flow. He hasn’t entertained the impact illegal immigration has had on California (homeless housing, veteran services, water). His allegiance isn’t to his Oath or the US.

  5. This behavior of Newsom’s is so outrageous and beyond the pale it’s almost impossible for us to imagine that he could gain any traction for his Pres ambitions from it. It gets him the attention he craves but how could it be anything but negative attention and disdain? After all, those he is playing to are still a small percentage of voters in the rest of the country, no matter how much we are manipulated to think otherwise. His message is extreme and ugly and shows who he is. How can it not be rejected?

    1. Take a look at the aspirations of another Governor of CA back in the 70s. There was a Governor that saw all that ails the US and spoke out about more freedom, less government control, less government regulations, removing ridiculous Fed and State agency mandates and power and making peoples lives better. He should take a clue from that guy and why his appeal reached every single state (blue and red). Our current Governor (with similar hair style) is none of the above. Frankly, I could not identify a single thing that he stands for other than himself.

  6. 10,000 drug deaths in California from 2020-21, 70% increase over 2019. 22% of the nations homeless in California, 161k including seniors and veterans. 70,000+ truckers have vowed not to deliver goods in Cali.
    Inflation is about to take another bump up; with ever-increasing utilities; gas prices are $1.21 above the national
    average, yet he refuses to suspend tax and is slow-rolling the refund with the budget surplus, which should be separate; crime rates at an all-time high (trafficking as well). A 15 year old is dead from fentanyl-laced percocet, but guess her life and her families anguish don’t matter… let’s criticize other states protecting their citizens.

  7. Noisome is hoping that his tantrum will cause people not to notice his dumpster fire of a state. All it will do is bring more attention to his disaster area known as Kalifornia.

  8. Insanity!
    Yes the mRNA gene therapy shot does cross the blood/brain barrier! Newsom is living proof!

    Dear Governor Newsom, the kidnapping and human trafficking begins in South America and continues up to our Mexican border, drug cartels are now trafficking in humans. They pass babies and unaccompanied children to strangers along the way. Embedded live streamers have captured that happening but you will never see it on national or local news.
    Hundreds of people are drowning in the Rio Grande because our immigration laws have been abandoned, set aside to appease the globalists supported by the U.N.

    The cities and wealthy enclaves that are whining about getting 50 illegal immigrants MUST feel the burden of the very thing they support, an OPEN BORDER. Texas, Arizona and New Mexico are being overwhelmed!

    If he is going to claim kidnapping; then how would he describe the late night secret chartered flights from Texas to multiple cities with migrants on board?

    Did those happy migrants that were on Martha’s Vineyard or in DC look distressed to you?

    Start tuning into Real America Voice, Border News Network and read Todd Bensman.

  9. When is Newsom filing a lawsuit against Biden for doing the same thing?

    Newsom is working out some new plans for tax increases to pay for the lawsuits. One of them being considered is a tampon tax.

  10. ‘Gavin Newsom challenges Ron DeSantis to debate…” fox.com 9/16
    Rapid response replies: “Thirst post all you want, you’re not getting the UHauls back”
    In DeSantis speech to press: ‘We’re not a Sanctuary State, but will help to facilitate transportation’

  11. I agree that Newsom’s ongoing interference in other states’ actions and policies is not going to play well nationally if he continues. He’s coming across as the arrogant, self-aggrandising political animal that he is. I hope he suffers an epic failure in his presidential aspirations because of his need to feel important. Scumbag.

  12. Don’t think very many people in this country are going to look to this unbalanced, angry maniac for leadership. We may seem pretty far gone right about now but we’re not THAT far gone. Wow:
    Gov Newsom and his angry, weird, choppy speech pattern talking about drilling for oil and green energy and how Fox and DeSantis are liars. You know, his usual insane patter:
