NYC Mayor Eric Adams Sent Illegal Border Crossers to Florida, Texas and China

NYC Mayor Eric Adams Sent Illegal Border Crossers to Florida, Texas and China

“Between April 2022 and April 2023, New York City spent around $50,000 to resettle 114 migrant households in cities around the U.S. and the globe”

Newly released documents reveal that New York City Mayor Eric Adams sent illegal border crossers in the city to multiple destinations including Texas, Florida and even China.

This is the same mayor who has repeatedly complained when leaders in other states have sent migrants to his city.

Documents reveal Eric Adams sent migrants to Florida, Texas and China

After lashing out at leading Republicans for busing asylum-seekers to Democrat-led cities, New York Mayor Eric Adams turned around and did something similar — sending dozens of migrants to red states like Florida and Texas.

And Adams didn’t stop at the nation’s borders.

Between April 2022 and April 2023, New York City spent around $50,000 to resettle 114 migrant households in cities around the U.S. and the globe, according to information obtained exclusively by POLITICO through a public information request. Some were sent to countries in South America — and one all the way to China.

The most common destinations were Florida, which received 28 families, and Texas, which received 14.

That represents a fraction of the nearly 79,000 migrants who entered the city since last spring, and is thousands fewer than Gov. Greg Abbott has sent out of Texas. But the fact that New York City paid for trips to Republican strongholds could further inflame national tensions on a subject that is sure to influence both Congressional races and President Joe Biden’s reelection bid.

Brittany Bernstein of National Review reminds us what Adams has said about this in the past:

The report comes after Adams previously accused Florida governor Ron DeSantis and Texas governor Greg Abbott of relocating migrants only as “part of a political ploy.” The mayor had also accused Abbott and DeSantis of creating a “humanitarian crisis” by sending migrants from the U.S.-Mexico border up north.

Abott sent thousands of migrants via bus to New York City and Washington, D.C., while DeSantis sent 85 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard and California last year.

A spokeswoman for the mayor’s office defended the resettlements in a statement to Politico: “In contrast, New York City has, as we have discussed very publicly for months, worked to connect individuals with friends, family, and networks whether in New York City or outside of it.”

“We are not coercing people to leave, we are not suggesting or recommending locations, and we are not presenting any kind of false choice. We are helping people who want to reconnect with loved ones or communities do so,” Kate Smart said.

So when Republicans do this it’s a ploy, but when Democrat leaders in New York do it, they’re helping people.

No one is buying that.

At that cost, versus the cost of providing for them, he should have sent thousands more. The same thing goes for Texas. Bus trips are a bargain.

Must have a different definition of sanctuary.

Flooding sanctuary cities is funny, but we really should be throwing them out of America, We should also stop birthright citizenship, then we can throw their spawn out with them.

    Good idea, but with the current interpretation of “natural born”, unless you can get a lawsuit to SCOTUS and have them agree with your/our interpretation, you’ll have to get a constitutional amendment. Good luck with that.

      That part of the fourteenth amendment reads:

      All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

      The occasional debate is about “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” — usually read very narrowly to exclude only descendants of people with diplomatic immunity, but there are claims that it should be read to exclude those whose presence in the United States is not subject to its laws, that is, who are present in the United States against the laws of same.

      The natural born passage pertains to qualifications for the presidency, not citizenship.

        You’re right, I had the wrong section – but the current legal stance is effectively the same. If you drop the brat in the US, it’s a citizen, and it will likely still require a constitutional amendment to change that.

        I don’t understand States don’t take the stance that the infant is a citizen with a right to be here, but the parent is not and does not. So, parent, do you want to take your child with you when you are deported or do you want to remand your child to the custody of the state? We will terminate your parental rights and put the child up for adoption.

    Wish I could give you more than one uptick. I am only two generations off the boat. My grandparents on both sides did it legally. Of course, that was back of the days when white Europeans were allowed to immigrate to the United States.

      Of course after the mass immigration of the early twentieth century there was a long pause in order to allow for a period of assimilation by these waves of immigrants without the constant replenishment of language and culture that work to prevent the necessity of assimilation.

      Currently about 20% of the population wasn’t born in the US. It’s time for another pause no matter what we end up doing with illegals. The establishment and corporate America will fight tooth and nail to prevent a pause. They want an influx of low wage employees to keep labor costs down.

Perhaps they will start to add PO Boxes at Greyhound stations so the illegals can get their bene checks in a prompt manner. Current residence, milepost 635 on I40, no, make that 636, …

Has someone told Gavin Newsom about this open and notorious conspiracy of kidnapping being conducted by the ruling d/prog of NYC? /S

but but but…. sanctuary city…

The difference in numbers between NY and FL/TX are obvious. The volume that TX in particular deals with is orders of magnitude greater.

I’d be willing to bet that TX has still sent fewer to NY by % than vice versa…especially if you consider all of the non-asylum smuggled gotaways leaking through Biden’t porous border.

So if I understand Hishonor, the Mayor Eric Adams correctly, he’s saying something like:

“We are a sanctuary city and love immigrant’s, and you oppressors in Texas and Florida are racists and haters. So to show our love for the immigrants we love and that you oppressors, racists and haters sent us, we’re sending them back to live in your oppressive, racist, hate-filled states.”

Do I understand this correctly?

(“When we do it, It’s not kidnapping.”)

“And Adams didn’t stop at the nation’s borders.”

That’s the bigger story here – not another ‘DeMs ArE tEh ReAL hYPoCrItEs’ blah, blah.

A mayor of a city can deport the illegal invaders to another nation, but governors of border states are impotent in sending these invaders out of our nation??

They are ALL in on the open borders scam.

“New York City spent around $50,000 to resettle 114 migrant households” implies that a Democratic city government did something for less than $500/head. I can’t believe that’s possible.
