‘Not Sustainable’: Sanctuary City NYC Discouraging Migrants From Traveling to the City

‘Not Sustainable’: Sanctuary City NYC Discouraging Migrants From Traveling to the City

“This cannot continue. It’s not sustainable, and we’re not going to pretend as though this is sustainable. This is wrong that New York City is carrying the weight of a national problem.”

How it started: June 2, 2021, when all eight Democrat NHYC mayor hopefuls promised to make NYC more of a sanctuary city than ever before!

Eric Adams won the election.

How’s it going now: New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced new housing policies for migrants and flyers for the southern border to discourage others from traveling to the city.

The Democrats and left will never learn. Not so easy being a sanctuary city, eh? Who saw this coming?!

NYC ran out of room:

New York City Mayor Eric Adams today announced additional policies to help asylum seekers in the city’s care move out of shelter and create critically needed space for arriving families with children seeking asylum. The city has made every effort to continue serving the more than 90,000 asylum seekers who have arrived in New York City since last spring, but with an average of 300-500 people still arriving each day, and more than 54,800 migrants still in the city’s care, New York City is at capacity, having responded in the absence of state or federal action. In the coming days, the city will begin providing 60 days’ notice to adult asylum seekers to find alternative housing paired with intensified casework services to help adult asylum seekers explore other housing options and take the next step in their journey. Each asylum seeker given notice will have multiple touchpoints with case workers over their 60 days to discuss their options and plan their next steps. The city also announced new flyers to combat misinformation at the border and inform asylum seekers that the city cannot continue to support the level of service it has been providing.

The flyer:

Adams said: “This cannot continue. It’s not sustainable, and we’re not going to pretend as though this is sustainable. This is wrong that New York City is carrying the weight of a national problem.”

Adams actually tried to take credit for doing “more than any other level of government to address this national crisis.”

Texas and Arizona started busing the migrants to sanctuary cities because they ran out of room. They ran out of resources and help. They encountered the exact same problems NYC is facing now.

Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs Manuel Castro tried to claim that NYC “called on the federal government to develop a fair decompression strategy to ensure asylum seekers find the support they need across the country, and not just rely on any one city” since migrants first arrived in the city.

No. No, Castro. From the start, Adams did nothing but demonize and tear apart the Arizona and Texas governors. It wasn’t until NYC started encountering problems, the same ones voiced by those governors, that the city turned its attention to the federal government.

I want to hold back, but I cannot. I just cannot.

Duh, Adams. YOU asked for this when you declared your city a sanctuary city. YOU asked for this when you chastised Arizona and Texas for not doing enough for the migrants. You literally invited the migrants to your city.

Hey migrants. Don’t forget that NYC’s “compassion is infinite,” according to Dr. Ted Long, senior vice president at NYC Health + Hospitals. He admitted their “space is not.”

Yeah, I’m sure that will satisfy those seeking help after hearing Joe Biden and the other Democrats like Adams promising everything under the sun.

I also love how NYC thinks it’s the only one doing anything for the migrants.

These self-righteous holier-than-thou people disgust me. Playing politics with people who come from nothing.

The majority of the people coming to America want to contribute, work, and raise families.

As much as the Democrats infuriate me, the Republicans haven’t done anything to revamp our immigration system either. It’s more than just a wall. The system is so screwed up, and no one does anything.

Hey Eric, not sustainable for the USA either.

Amazing how those cheap, $15 yard signs spouting myriad, self-congratulatory Dumb-o-crat platitudes and holier-than-thou sermonizing, quickly yield to self-serving NIMBYism one millisecond after the vile Dumb-o-crats are confronted with and forced to bear some of the cost of their idiotic policies’ deleterious effects and consequences.

When it cost them nothing in financial and quality-of-life terms, the Dumbs’ couldn’t stop their fatuous and sanctimonious “sanctuary city” posturing and rhetorical virtue-signaling. The minute that consequences ensue, these hypocritical reprobates start singing another tune.

I am sure they have enough votes so they need illegals to go to Red State cities

The massive number of illegals allowed to enter USA by Mr. 10% will lead to some citizens’ death.

The USA does not have enough medical resources for those who are legally in USA.

You may die waiting for an ambulance or in an emergency waiting room.

However, it is OK if you die because it would reduce the population like the VP and gates wants to do.

I guess the Dems think that TB and the other diseases the illegals are bringing into the country have been spread around enough to get a good foothold.

      The lack of awareness on the part of the open borders/ no limit immigration crowd re the screening, triage and quarantine procedures in place at Ellis Island seems to be a sort of blind indifference. Nor do they seem at all concerned about the rise in communicable but easily treated diseases like active TB and latent TB with the USA.

Not sustainable? Are the illegals cooking all their meth in gas ovens and only jacking gas cars?

“This is wrong that New York City is carrying the weight of a national problem.”

Fu*k you, idiots. How do you think the open borders are impacting Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California?

“This is wrong that New York City is carrying the weight of a national problem.”


Choke. On. It. Adams!

Mayor Adams needs to do some math. NYC has 8.8/360 = 2.44% of the US population, so it should, logically, absorb 2.44% of the illegal immigrants. There were 2.76 million illegal crossings in FY 2022 (per CBP), though about 20% were repeat customers, so that’s about 185,000 per month, on average. April 2022 to today is 15 months, for an estimate of 2.76 million unique illegal immigrants over that period, a number that’s likely on the low side given the increased rate. NYC’s share of those 2.76M illegal immigrants is 67,500. Not much below the 90,000 that have actually showed up, particularly given NYC’s status as a sanctuary city. NYC is not “carrying the weight of a national problem” in any meaningful way.

Just. Drop in the bucket

“This is wrong that New York City is carrying the weight of a national problem.”

Any of the burden. Bad, wrong, and unfair that NYC should shoulder any of the impact of policies they inflict on the country as a whole.

And just like that, they didn’t want anymore illegal immigrants to come to the sanctuary of NYC.

Well it’s obvious what this means. Red states should ramp up the effort and send many more busloads of invaders, faster!

That “diversity is our strength” sure faded when it comes to paying for it.

    The unspoken part was always a variant of ‘as long as these illegals stay someplace else and someone else foots the bill, preferably in Red border States or rural areas of Red States’.

    The actions of Abbot and DeSantis in sending these virtue signaling frauds bus loads and plane loads of illegals immediately revealed the previously unspoken part very publicly. If nothing else they accomplished that much, all leading to delicious irony of NYC telling them ‘no mas’.

With all the people fleeing NYC you’d think there’d be plenty of room for illegals.

To be fair to the arrogant POS mayor of NYC, he only has to convince all of the other arrogant POS NYCers that he’s in the right. He’s just echoing the arrogant ignorance of his constituents.

This brings to mind an advertising program from decades ago. Remember the jingle?

You asked for it, You got it. Toyota.

So now they’re kicking out adult migrants in favor of migrant families with children. This will make the situation of the NYC public schools even worse.
