Bipartisan NYC Council Caucus Tells Hochul to Sue Biden Over Migrant and Border Crisis

Bipartisan NYC Council Caucus Tells Hochul to Sue Biden Over Migrant and Border Crisis

“We believe the president and his administration have left you no choice but to go to the courts for redress.”

The Common Sense Caucus of the New York City Council has demanded Gov. Kathy Hochul sue President Joe Biden’s administration over the migrant and border crisis.

The entire eight-member caucus, which includes Democrats and Republicans, signed the letter to Hochul. From The New York Post:

“We are urging you to take immediate legal action to prevent further harm to New York caused by the federal government’s failure to secure our borders, prevent the flow of migrants into our city and state, and provide any financial remuneration for the crisis they have created,” wrote Councilman Robert Holden (D-Queens), Minority Leader Joseph Borelli (R-Staten Island) and the rest of the eight-member “Common Sense Caucus” in a letter Friday to Hochul.

“Your private and public appeals to the White House for assistance have been met with indifference or silence,” the members wrote the governor. “We believe the president and his administration have left you no choice but to go to the courts for redress.”

Caucus members said they’re “fully aware of the significant challenges” of suing the federal government, which typically has immunity from most types of legal actions, but believe the state has a case.

Biden’s “negligence” has “caused undue financial injury to the city and state, which is preventing our governments from being able to fulfill their constitutional obligation to provide for their citizens,” they wrote.

New York City is about to break due to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sending migrants to the supposed sanctuary city.

Only then did Mayor Eric Adams and Hochul start applying pressure to Biden. They tried to smear Abbott, but it didn’t work because pictures and video do not lie.

We saw protesters drowning out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and other Democrats at a press conference outside of the Roosevelt Hotel. The city made the once iconic hotel a migrant shelter. A report showed that authorities have arrested at least 41 migrants at the hotel since May.

Adams already warned New Yorkers that all city services face a 15% cut in their budgets because of the strain caused by the migrant crisis.

Adams emphasized the city needs more help from the state and the Biden administration.

The Biden administration had the nerve to criticize Adams for not having an exit strategy.

Oh, Adams deserves criticism, but not from Biden and his people. Because, you know, the Biden administration is totes on top of the border crisis!

Biden needs to tell sanctuary-state NY to start walking the walk, and embrace its wokeness.

How is it that Texas can afford hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants within its state but New York is about ready to under with 90% fewer?

    healthguyfsu in reply to stevewhitemd. | September 18, 2023 at 1:26 pm

    Several reasons:

    Because Dems can waste money like no other and by waste I mean line their pockets with contract kickbacks. The contracts themselves are inflated and lead to the spending waste. To be fair, lots of GOP do the same thing.

    Also, Federal funds help Texas and other border states but it’s not enough to offset the cost. Biden’s lack of immigration enforcement is collapsing the federal budget for such measures, so naturally, his response has been to talk tough and say “take what we give you and deal with it”.

    NY also gets funds to a lesser extent because they aren’t a border state. They are also saying they don’t have enough and this time they aren’t lying.

    Hundreds of Thousands

    You jest

    Millions upon millions

    Spanish is the new English in Texas

    On another note

    Fee Gov, your bollards aren’t working

    But you already knew that

      “”Spanish is the new English in Texas””

      One of your more ignorant displays of stupidity.

        gonzotx in reply to txvet2. | September 18, 2023 at 5:56 pm

        Lol you are special aren’t you?

        Actually, gonzo is correct. There are areas of San Antonio where you will not hear a word of English.

          This is true in a lot of cities, ever been to a China Town? Heck, even in Boston’s North End, you will hear a lot of Italian still (or did when I lived in Mass over a decade ago). But San Antonio is not all of Texas, nor is Boston all of Mass. and etc.

          Fuzzy, I’m not talking about “a lot of”. I’m talking about “exclusively”. Just north of here in New Braunfels (that’s a clue) you will hear “a lot of” German, but you will also hear English. The areas of San Antonio (and Austin, Houston, Dallas/Ft. Worth, etc., etc.) I’m referring to are “exclusively” Spanish. Conversations, radio & television, store signs, etc. All in Spanish, no English. None, zero, zip, nada. These neighborhoods are effectively Mexican enclaves with little or no commonality with the United States.

          Yeah, that’s a problem.

          Actually, Spanish has been the dominant (European) language in the Americas, including Texas and the US Southwest, since the 16th Century. English dominated in Texas for a few decades beginning around the late 19th Century or thereabouts.

          “”Fuzzy, I’m not talking about “a lot of”. “”

          I understand what you’re saying. In the early 20th Century, there were areas of NYC where you’d hear nothing but Italian. There are areas in the upper Midwest where you hear nothing but Somali. This is nothing new. But if you believe that the fact that there are hispanic enclaves in SC Texas is somehow related to the end of the world, you’re deluded, just as you would be if you bemoaned the fact that there are some majority black neighborhoods in East San Antonio.

Oh Please Sue, baby, sue.. Does the doctrine of contributory negligence still apply, as in you voted for this, now deal with?

What happened to their diversity is our strength? Sure went out the window when NIMBY kicked in.

    >>What happened to their diversity is our strength? <<

    Diversity is our strength as long as it stays out of our neighborhoods and backyards. They forgot to tell us the second part. Typical democrats.

And as I’ve said all along, now is the time that Southern States up their game, double-down and send even more of these illegals to the cities that sanctimoniously declared themselves a Sanctuary City. let them deal with the unemployed illegals. let them deal with the imported diseases, let them deal with the crime & violence.

Plenty of places they can send them. That’s for sure.

Maybe this coalition of the NYC Council should recommend that NYC Mayor Adams and NYC file suit instead wasting time telling the Gov?

henrybowman | September 18, 2023 at 2:17 pm

John Belushi: “FOOD FIGHT!”

Now what should happen is that a dozen AGs of red states burdened by immigration should sign onto NY’s suit in whatever capacity they can weasel their way in — co-complainants, amici, whatever. You know, all the AGs who have tried this themselves and couldn’t get the time of day from the federal “justice” system. Just embarrass the shit out of the proggies.
Hail, Alinsky!

Bipartisan NYC Council ? I would have thought the only way they may be considered bipartisan is that the have Democrats and Communists

Hochul to Sue Biden Over Migrant and Border Crisis

Pigs will sooner fly.

seems the light bulbs in the virtue signal have suddenly died…

That sound you hear is the music for the victory dance being danced by DeSantis and Abbott.

First, we must admit that they have bussed far fewer illegal immigrants than the Biden administration has flown hither, thither and yon. Nonetheless, the busses focused attention on the issue in a way that midnight airflights never could.

Now, New York and other places are getting to share in the load, and they’re finding that a far smaller share of the load than, for instance, Texas bears is far too much for then to handle. Awww, and gee, I thought New York was rich and powerful. Hmph. Not so rich, not so powerful.

Or maybe Texas is made of people of tougher stuff.

In any event, I’m glad to see them suing. No doubt, Texas has filed similar suits and been swatted into the next county, so to speak. It’ll be interesting to see if NY is similarly swatted. Maybe Texas should file amici briefs on behalf of Biden, so as to add a little more cement to the enmity between Texas and NY.

As Commander-in-Chief, can he be charged with dereliction of duty? The left is getting ridiculously creative in bending laws to manufacture crimes, can we play, too?

I believe that being a sanctuary state and city, NYS and NYC should QUADRUPLE the number of illegal immigrants they’re taking in.

I can’t wait until they are so broke that they have to stop paying welfare and Medicaid.

Let’s see how the cities are destroyed by riots then.

    Be careful what you wish for; you might get it.

    Our supply chain in general is “hub-and-spoke”; freight is shipped in bulk to the cities and then broken up for delivery to Small Town USA. Set the hub on fire and the spokes can’t connect.
