NYC Mayor Adams Complains 'This Is Unfair!', Demands More Money For Illegals
It's no secret that illegal immigration is a growing problem in the United States. Cities and towns across the nation are being overrun with migrants who have been bused in from Central and South America and the situation is quickly becoming untenable.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams recently traveled to El Paso to get an up-close look at the crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, and he was shocked by what he saw. Adams, who had previously supported cities becoming havens for illegal immigrants, declared it a "national crisis" and said that it needs "a national solution."
It's a shame that it had to reach this point for Adams to recognize the severity of the problem. The city of New York has already taken in around 40,000 asylum seekers since the spring of 2022 and opened 74 emergency shelters and four humanitarian relief centers. In the last week alone, 3,100 asylum seekers arrived, and 835 on one day alone. This influx is estimated to cost the city up to $2 billion.
It's clear that the Biden Administration has done little to address the issue of illegal immigration. Instead, they have chosen to expand pathways of legal immigration, making it easier for more people to enter the country without having to abide by the law. This is an irresponsible move that only serves to encourage more illegal immigration and puts an enormous strain on resources in cities like New York and El Paso.
It's time for the federal government to take swift action to address the issue of illegal immigration. The safety and well-being of citizens should always be the number one priority and we cannot allow our resources to be drained by illegal immigrants. The Biden administration needs to take this crisis seriously and put in place measures that will effectively combat illegal immigration. Doing so will help protect American citizens and ensure that our resources are not being abused.
The answer isn't hiking up taxes on Americans to pay for the illegal immigration problem. The solution is to restore law and order and secure those damn borders. It's not rocket science.
