When a busload of frontier workers arrived in Toms River, Mayor Maurice “Mo” Hill would give them some donuts and ship them to Washington.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis have sent cross-border asylum seekers to so-called “sanctuary states” and cities, including New York and Washington, DC
DeSantis sent a plane to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts and reportedly sent another plane to President Joe Biden’s home in Delaware.
The plane bound for Delaware somehow went off course and landed in Teterboro, but only the flight crew was on board.
Although Gov. Phil Murphy has not declared New Jersey a safe haven state, he has welcomed unauthorized immigrants with free college education and driver’s licenses.
What if a group was headed to Republic stronghold Toms River?
“In the unlikely event that a chartered flight carrying illegal immigrants bound for Toms River arrives at Lakewood (airport), I would meet the plane on the tarmac, give each passenger a box of OB CO’s donuts and a sweatshirt from ‘Let’s Go’ Brandon ‘ Store,” said Hill, a Republican.
“I would then give her bus driver directions to the White House with my compliments to the President.”
Hill’s comments were originally given to the Asbury Park Press and part of a post on Toms River’s official Facebook page.
“Toms River will not welcome people who have crossed the border illegally and have not been screened for criminal records and affiliations,” Hill added on the Facebook page.
Ocean County Democrats also reposted Hill’s comments on their Facebook page.
“Republicans’ ability to view their fellow man as unworthy of help and compassion is staggering. Don’t be fooled by the notion that ‘local Republicans’ aren’t that partisan. Vote Democrats everywhere,” the party wrote.
Democratic Chairman Wyatt Earp did not respond to New Jersey 101.5’s request for additional comment Friday afternoon.
