“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.
"We should protect our immigrants." Period.
Yes, New York City will remain a sanctuary city under an Adams administration. #EricOnNBC

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?!
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.
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.DONATE
