New York City’s Democrat Mayor Eric Adams complained this week about the number of illegal immigrants showing up in the city and saying that they are straining local resources.
Have you noticed that a lot of Democrats are saying this now that the problem is affecting them?
The mayor of Washington, DC said this just a few days ago.
Apparently, this was fine when it was only a problem for border communities.
New York City Is Complaining About Too Many Immigrants Arriving From the Southern Border
New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) is sounding the alarm over the number of immigrants released by Border Patrol who have made their way to one of America’s biggest cities and are now overwhelming city services.
NBC New York reports Adams is calling on the federal government to help the city deal with the influx of people who illegally crossed the U.S-Mexico border, turned themsleves in to Border Patrol, and have been released waiting for their immigration court dates.
Due to New York City’s “right to shelter” mandate, a homeless asylum seeker must be placed in a shelter.
“Currently, New York City is experiencing a marked increase in the number of asylum seekers who are arriving from Latin America and other regions. In some instances, families are arriving on buses sent by the Texas and Arizona governments, while in other cases, it appears that individuals are being sent by the federal government,” Adams said in a statement, adding that over 2,800 asylum seekers recently entered the shelter system.
Adams blamed Texas and Arizona for busing the people from the southern border to his town, but the buses from those two states are only being sent to Washington, D.C.

Funny how this is only an issue now that Democrats are feeling the consequences of their own policies.
