(RoyalPatriot.com )- New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) proclaimed a state of emergency on Friday due to the large number of illegal immigrants entering the sanctuary city.
Seventeen thousand migrants have been bussed to New York City since the spring, a small number compared to the 2 million migrants who have flooded Texas, Arizona, and Florida’s cities. The mayor, a left-winger who has welcomed immigrants to the Big Apple, called the migration crisis on Friday.
Adams said this humanitarian crisis was sparked by conflict and instability in South America and fueled by American political forces. He said the problem will impact everyone in this city, both now and the coming months, “and it is not our fault.”
Adams, in 2019, welcomed immigrants to his community in response to then-President Donald Trump’s stricter immigration policy.
Adams wrote on Twitter in 2019- “To anybody in the globe fleeing intolerance and persecution, the ultimate city of immigrants wants you to remember: You’re ALWAYS welcome here.”
After border states dispatched migrants to cities in blue-state states, giving those communities a taste of the crisis at the border, Adams is the most recent Democrat to appeal for assistance. Early in September, Muriel Bowser, the Democratic mayor of Washington, D.C., proclaimed a state of emergency. In response to the migrant influx, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker (D) issued an emergency disaster proclamation and deployed the National Guard.
Adams’s complaints about immigration, according to Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R.), demonstrate the mayor’s “rank hypocrisy,” Abbott remarked in August.
Abbott told Fox News that Mayor Adams declared that they welcome illegal immigrants. And when they are forced to cope with reality, they get overwhelmed and unable to handle it.
Adams predicted that the cost of providing care for asylum seekers would top $1 billion this fiscal year in a Friday speech calling for federal and state financing. The emergency declaration also suspends land use regulations for the city to construct tent camps for the refugees.
The mayor claimed that the situation was “beyond the boundaries of our capacity to provide care for New Yorkers in need” and that it was “eating through our city’s budget.” It is neither ethical nor sustainable.
New York wants to shelter undocumented immigrants aboard cruise ships. The local government has put forth the concept, Norwegian Cruise Line revealed on Saturday to Fox News, but no agreement has yet been reached.
