(Tea Party PAC) – Officials for the city of Laredo, Texas say their city has been left financially devastated by all of the COVID restrictions from the past year along with the flood of illegals that have crossed the southern border making it impossible for them to provide any sort of care for the individuals who are being sent to the city by the Biden administration.
According to Newswars, the city is on the brink of economic collapse, total devastation being wrought on the people of Laredo thanks to idiotic measures used to help control the coronavirus which was the first punch they had to eat, followed by the illegals that have been crossing over thanks to President Biden tossing out the previous administration’s immigration policies.
Laredo City Manager Robert Eads recently told Border Report that, “The city is tapped out.” and “Hope doesn’t pay the bills.
“We’ve seen this movie already. It’s just for us a humanitarian effort. We want to help however we can but with the extent of what the cost of all things COVID, we’re tapped out,” he said.
The Biden administration has already started dumping off thousands of illegal aliens in towns and cities located along the border and even beyond as this migration surge hits historic proportions.
City officials have stated that Laredo does not possess the resources to be able to weather the storm without help from the federal government, as they are already facing a $50 million budget deficit.
“Looking at it from the lens of the mayor of a city, I can say that we’re the recipients of Washington’s policies,” Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz went on to say.
“Ultimately, Washington gets what they want based on policies, and I recognize that, but when policies are instituted or changed and they place a city or local community at a disadvantage financially, then we can use resources to help and accommodate,” he continued.
Within 24 hours, Laredo North Station Border Patrol agents apprehended 111 individuals during 3 separate human smuggling attempts involving commercial trailers.

This is a mess that has been made by the Biden administration and it is their duty to clean it up. That doesn’t just mean providing some sort of financial assistance for the city. It means setting aside their political agenda long enough to get solid immigration policy into action and seal off the border to end this madness before other cities fall into hard times.
