“Murrieta Mayor: Feds Never Contacted Us About Dumping Illegals in Our City”

Well, why should they?  I mean, who are you, anyway?  Obama is King.  And kings don’t ask permission.  Nor are they committed to following federal law. Or abiding the rights of states and local governments.

Why, it’s almost as if this local flunky believes he matters:

Alan Long, the mayor of Murrieta, California, defended the protests in his community this week. [He] also told FOX News the federal government have not contacted him about dumping hundreds of illegal immigrant children on the streets of Murrieta.

“We’re a very small town. It’s a bedroom community of about 106,000 and the air is clean and the people are beautiful… As far as we know, Murrieta is still a destination point. So we have every reason to expect more buses to arrive in Murrieta. Border patrol and Homeland Security has not answered any of those questions. We just anticipate more coming. Border patrol… At the national and the Department of Homeland Security, we have yet to hear from them with a short term and long term plan. So we’re really in the dark.”

“In the dark“?  Really?  And I guess we’re supposed to ignore the racism in that dog whistle of a statement, aren’t we, Mr. Mayor Freudian slip?

You, sir, should be thrilled that ObamaCo picked your little hamlet.   Your implicit outrage is therefore itself outrageous. Be thankful He put the likes of you on the map.  Before this, no one had even heard of your town, nor the yahoos who guard it so bitterclingerishly.

So check your privilege, xenophobe.

  1. When you don’t have a news media that actually does the job they are supposed to be doing, this is what you get.

    There is no stopping Obama. He can do whatever he wants to.

  2. Where I come from, “very small town” does not mean “over 100,000 people”.

    There are 12 states with only one city over 100k, and five states with none.

    Sorry, Mayor. You’re not mayor of a “very small town”.

    A “small town” might have a population of a few thousand. A “very small town” might have a few hundred.

    Murietta is a full-on city, one of the 300 largest in the country (there being just under 300 cities of 100k+ population in the US).

    (I mean, I sympathize with his irritation with DHS, certainly. But “very small town”, my ass.)

  3. Just as the Democrat Party cannot truthfully rename itself in concert with its policy preference, namely, Socialism, so the operators in the “give amnesty to the poor poor brown children” game cannot say what their policy implies: the cantonment of American communities.

    “But that’s alright,” the operators will say, “you silly mis-identified American privilegers will be safer inside the fences we’ll build to keep you in. Rest easy. All will be well.”

  4. Where I come from, “very small town” does not mean “over 100,000 people”.

    Well, this is California, where any town with only three freeway off-ramps IS considered “small”. There are three individual cities, and half a dozen other population centers with more than a million people, nine counties with more than a million, and a half dozen more in the 500k-million range. And Murrietta only recently topped 100k by absorbing the Menifee area previously considered “unincorporated”.

    (I used to work election polling precincts in and around that area — Murrietta, Menifee, Lake Elsinore. And Murrietta is still smaller than the other nearby cities — Temecula, Riverside, Moreno Valley.)

    Murrieta is not only “small” by Southern California standards, since it is Inland and (gasp) Republican, it is dismissed as something less than Appalachia hillbillies. (now you know why the illegals are being dumped there)

    Fontana has twice that population and is referred to as Fontucky.

    The classism by region & politics in contemporary California is pretty nasty. You’re judged by even your area code! (909 being considered trash)

  7. (909 being considered trash)

    That’s really weird to my ears. When I hear “909” I think of the Roland and classic beats.

  8. Darleen, my father’s family moved to Bakersfield from Oklahoma during the dust bowl.

    It doesn’t get much more déclassé than us filthy descendants of Okies who got rich from oil and farming.

  9. From the urban dictionary:

    The area code in Southern California for Riverside and San Bernardino County; usually associated with white trash.
    Having your truck on blocks in the driveway make me feel like I live in the 909.

  10. Man, that’s crazy to learn to my non-Cali ears, Darleen.

    Every time I hear 909 referenced I’ve always heard it like 303 0r 808. Always thought it meant the synthesizer.

  11. What’s weird about that is that growing up I heard about the Roland 909 having a dirty or sub-par sound. I wonder if it doesn’t stem from this same confusion.

  12. I’ve had family in the area since it was still all 714 (which basically covered everything outside Los Angeles’ 213 area code), even before the first split-off to 619 (for the desert cities and San Diego area). The people at the AT&T exhibit at Disneyland were required to memorize all of the area codes, so they could identify where visitors were from, but there were only about 100 back then, given that the middle number had to be either 1 or 0, and anything ending in ‘-11’ were reserved phone company codes (211, 411, 611, 811, 911) and ‘800’ was the toll free area code.

    I still remember my phone number when I was a kid (late 50s) in the San Fernando Valley —



  14. Me? I’m shooting for a sub-par round.


  15. Crap. Must be this damn Republican putter.


  16. *putt*

  17. My Grandparents party line: DUnkirk-7-4317.

    I tried to get it when I bought the house I’m in now, but, sadly, it was already taken.

    When I want to be a wise ass, I give out my home phone number the old way.

  18. Darleen,

    At least the 909 is acknowledged. The Central Valley is flyover country for the rest of CA. ;)

    Still trying to remember the WLS commercial that advised that you ask for Augie, Evelyn or Herman. This was mid-1970s, I think.

  21. They’re provoking us, provoking us, provoking us.

    Until Bubba fires a shot, and then they come down HARD.

    Give them NO reason; make THEM look bad.

  22. They’re provoking us [firing rockets], provoking us [firing rockets], provoking us [firing rockets].

    Oh jolly! Time for the Omniscient One’s favorite call to:

    “All parties must protect the innocent and act with reasonableness and restraint, not vengeance and retribution,” King ClownDisaster said.

    That’ll fix it.

  25. The best way to protect the innocent to separate military targets from civilian living areas. Somehow, I doubt that’s what Jugears is really calling for.

  26. MIdway 4-4120.

  27. The Omniscient One’s God’s-Eye view can find no distinctions betwixt any puny and variable human moral stances which can possibly comport with his Unerring Universal Powers of Vision. All is One to Him: His Own.

  28. Oh, blow me.

  29. My bologna has a first name, it’s…

  30. O!

  33. Juan Williams, apologist extraordinaire, seem to think several hundred/thousand illegals in a federal lock-up would bring “lots of money to the community”.

    Hey, prison guards gotta eat, yannow.

  34. Even if true for that community, the wealth would have to be drained from somewhere else. Williams is a fool.

  35. The Left: not known for its familiarity with Bastiat. Or basic common sense.

  36. BTW, in sporting news… “Deutschland uber alles”, big time.

  37. I guess we will be getting Brazilian refugees now.

  38. After all the foreboding pre-game talk of protest and riot should the hosts lose (and who knows what outburst may have come had the result been a narrow 1-zip or such?) maybe this absurd end will give the Brazilians pause to shrug and laugh about it instead, when then to return to their ordinary business like grown men and women enjoying the peculiar turns of life?
