“People coming from all over the world are finding their way through, simply saying they need asylum, and the majority of them seem to be ending up in the streets of New York and that is a real problem for New York City.”
In all honesty, the Democrats and Republicans share the blame regarding immigration.
As of right now, President Joe Biden takes the majority of the blame after all the promises he made on the 2020 campaign trail.
Why am I saying this? Because New York Gov. Kathy Hochul finally admitted we have a border crisis but also invoked the GOP to solve the problem (emphasis mine):
MARGARET BRENNAN: But it’s stunning that a trillion dollars is not is not sufficient. nationally. I want to ask you as well about the other crisis you’ve been raising alarms about not is the strain due to migrants. There were no border provisions in this congressional bill that just passed. And I know you’ve said you’ve had to manage without help from Washington. What would you ask Congress to get done in the next 45 days?
GOV. HOCHUL: Well, shame on Speaker McCarthy and the Republicans in Congress, including the nine from New York state who are complaining like crazy about the migrants, but refuse to work with President Biden and come up with a sensible border strategy. It can be done. This can be done in a bipartisan way, comprehensive immigration reform–
MARGARET BRENNAN: –What specifically do you want?
GOV. HOCHUL: Well, we want them to have a limit on who can come across the border. It is too open right now. People coming from all over the world are finding their way through, simply saying they need asylum, and the majority of them seem to be ending up in the streets of New York and that is a real problem for New York City. One hundred and twenty five thousand newly arrived individuals, and we are being taxed. We are always so proud of the fact that New York has the Statue of Liberty in our harbor- harbor. We are one of the most diverse places on earth because of our welcoming nature and our- it’s in our DNA to welcome immigrants. But there has to be some limits in place. And Congress has to put more controls at the border and not in this budget threat, shutdown threat. Talk about eliminating positions for Border Patrol, well, we actually need to double or quadruple those numbers. So get back to work and do your jobs.
Lady, Biden and the Democrats are not doing anything concerning immigration. Biden’s DHS is in charge.
The DHS could do so much more to stop the flow of immigrants without the help of Republicans.
Second, don’t declare yourself a sanctuary city or state. How do you think the small towns along the border have been doing? El Paso, TX, isn’t a small town, but the mayor had to declare an emergency.
How's that Sanctuary State thing working out for ya, Kathy.
