They’re just not that into you.

Today’s Democrats treat the American people like a spouse who has grown routine, sometimes ungrateful, and decreasingly alluring. And they cannot forgive America for running off for four years with that damn contractor.

But Democrats swoon over the 8.8 million illegal aliens who they have helped invade the country on President Joe Biden’s watch.

These arrivistes are like a collective paramour who blends excitement, the exotic, and a stiff whiff of danger. And, before long, odds are that they will vote Democrat. In a word: HOT!

That’s why American citizens lately feel jilted, if not abused by Democrats, even as illegal aliens gasp beneath the gifts that the Left piles on. “More free stuff?” they must ask. “We must be dating, but we just wanted something casual.”

  • New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, just cooked up a $53 million giveaway of free debit cards for illegal alien families with kids. They will receive $1,000 per month to buy baby supplies and food, including “culturally relevant” cuisine.

Meanwhile, Adams chopped the Education Department’s food budget by $60 million. This month, students who enjoyed chicken thighs, grab-and-go salads, and cookies now endure cheaper fare: pizza, hummus and crackers, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Gotham’s classrooms are 41.1% Hispanic, 23.7% black, and 16.5% of Asian descent. Schools that are only 14.7% white, on average, should expect more social justice than this. Instead, Adams feeds illegal aliens while depriving his voters’ children.

  • Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey, also a Democrat, seized the Melnea A. Cass Recreational Complex in Boston’s 55.6% black Roxbury district and turned it into an illegal alien shelter. That will leave at-risk youths with one less place to avoid trouble and seniors one less spot to gather safely.

According to news, the expropriated facility on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard will provide illegal aliens with “wrap-around services until May 31.” 

Healey, accompanied by Boston’s far Left Democratic Mayor Michelle Wu, visited the institution on Jan. 31. One local man approached Healey in front of the building and asked, “Maura, why do you think it’s OK to take away resources from the citizens of Massachusetts?”

She flippantly replied, “We need a housing bill passed.”

Sounding betrayed, former City Council candidate Shawn Nelson complained, “The only time they want us is when they want a vote, and as soon as they get that vote, they don’t need us anymore.”

  • “Rubin Report” host Dave Rubin flew through Miami last month. “This is the state of absolute insanity happening at our airports,” he commented via X. “I’m in the Pre-TSA line, where migrants don’t have to have an ID to get through security, and it’s their choice whether they want their picture taken.”

Illegal aliens need not show IDs to board planes. Those with arrest warrants may use those as ID, if they wish.

As for American citizens, let’s see those ID cards!

  • Army veteran Frank Tammaro, 94, was disappointed when his Staten Island senior center closed last March and booted 52 others. Tammaro grew enraged when he learned last summer that the facility reopened, to house illegal aliens—for free.
  • The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has taken well-deserved incoming for processing $94.3 million in illegal aliens’ health claims in fiscal year 2022, up 27.4% from $74 million in fiscal year 2021. Meanwhile, U.S. veterans’ wait-listed health claims swelled from 150,000 in fiscal year 2022 to 417,855 in fiscal year 2023—up 178.6%.

Biden is “taking resources away from our veterans to facilitate health care for illegal migrants,” said House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Mike Bost, R—Ill. “As a Marine, I believe any dollar taken away from a veteran is a promise broken to those who served.”

Biden and the Democrats have turned America into a First World country with second-class citizens and pampered foreign invaders. Americans who dislike the Democrats’ cold shoulders should go to Mexico, rush north across the “border,” and fall into the warm, illegal alien-loving arms of today’s Democratic Party.
