Liberals Running Houston Scoffed At Governor Abbott’s Warnings, Stubbornly Told Residents To ‘Stay Put And Ride Out Hurricane’ Knowing City Would Be Underwater; Their Mindset: ‘You Can’t Evacuate 4.5 Million People In Advance Of Storm’ = ‘You Can’t Deport 11 Million People’
By Dave Levine
Hindsight is 20/20 but in the case of Hurricane Harvey, officials like the Mayor, Police Chief and others KNEW the city of Houston would be underwater from this massive storm, a Cat 4–with millions without electricity, food and sanitation. How could they, then, tell residents to “stay put”?
Justin Miller and Alex Hannaford reported on this at the uber-liberal The Daily Beast.
The Mayor et al–all liberal Democrats–are defending their decision and deriding the Conservative Governor who wanted evacuation.
It’s a shame that politics entered into this disaster at all but such is life in America.
Houston is a Sanctuary City for illegals and is one of THE most drug-infested cities in the country. This is due to liberals (Democrats) running it. Now it appears they also caused deaths (unknown number at this time) and massive rescue operations by telling folks to “stay put”.
Governor Abbott was correct in wanting Houston evacuated.
