“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!DONATE
