If I remember correctly, Eric Adams got the Democrat Party nod for the mayoralty of New York City because he was once a cop. However, there are quite a lot of former NYC cops: more today than ever before, in fact. I have no idea what makes Adams special…unless it’s that he’s black. At any rate, he won the mayoralty on the strength of his having been a cop, among other things.
Democratic New York City Mayor Eric Adams pushed Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul to relocate Hispanic migrants to the Upstate New York area on Sunday.
After months of struggling with the influx of illegal migrants sent from Texas to NYC, Adams advocated for Hochul to move the migrants to the Upstate area.
“Some of our cities are suffering. They’re losing populations,” Adams stated while addressing the border from El Paso, Texas, the New York Post reported.
“But if this is done, is done effectively, and the dollars come in to support those who are helping migrants and asylum seekers to incentivize this help, we believe we can … help those cities that are struggling and at the same time, give people a good start in this country,” he continued, the outlet noted.
Wait just a moleskin-gloved minute there, Colonel: Wasn’t it you who proudly declared the Big Apple “a sanctuary city?” The rest of the state hasn’t done so. If any other city in the Empire State has done so, I’m unaware of it. I’d be rather surprised; the other urban zones in New York have enough problems of their own.
If Governor Hochul is about to compound the felonies of her administration by declaring the whole of New York to be “a sanctuary state,” a lot of New Yorkers are going to be more than a little peeved. Especially as dramatically heightened crime rates follow illegal aliens like a shadow. But Adams made his plea in awareness that it was NYC votes that made Hochul the governor. He’ll press that point if he must, for the city’s social support services are bowing under the load those illegals have put upon it.
At this point it’s unclear which way Hochul will move. I wouldn’t be surprised if she were to try to bribe Rochester or Syracuse into accepting some of Adams’s illegals. But wait…What’s that Mr. Mayor? They’re not your illegals? They were sent to NYC by someone else? What does that matter? You spread your arms toward these migrants. It’s a bit late to say you didn’t really mean it.
New York City dwellers probably hoped Adams would provide a respite from the lunacies of the eight De Blasio years. From here it looks as if those hopes will be disappointed. But anything’s better than a Republican mayor, right folks?
