Blue cities are havens for all types of criminals.
Leftists love that the number of immigrants has skyrocketed during the Biden administration even if it means that immigration crime is surging.
But now the mayor of a massive sanctuary city has done something he may never live down.
Blue city Democrat mayors all across the country have for years telegraphed invitations for all manner of illegal immigrants to flock to their cities.
After all, they believe it’s importing more voters for the Democrat Party base.
So, when it comes to immigration, by and large the Left will look the other way if not flat-out defend President Biden’s total incompetence, inability, or lack of any desire to protect this country’s borders.
But now one mayor of a massive sanctuary city just uttered the unthinkable.
He wants the feds to pay to stop the overflow of illegals into his city.
New York City’s Democrat Mayor Eric Adams has demanded that the federal government help pay to shelter and take care of the illegal immigrants.
In a statement, Adams said, “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. In order to both meet the legal mandate as a right-to-shelter city and provide high-quality shelter and services for those who enter our system, New York City needs additional federal resources immediately. If we do not get these urgently needed resources, we may struggle to provide the proper level of support our clients deserve, while also facing challenges as we serve both a rapidly growing shelter population and new clients who are seeking asylum. We are calling on the federal government to partner with New York City as we help asylum seekers navigate this process, and to provide financial and technical resources.”
But, according to NBC News, the governors of Texas and Arizona say, “they were in fact sending asylum seekers to Washington – but not to New York City.”
Governor Doug Ducey (R-AZ) said, “Mayor Adams needs to get his facts straight and pay closer attention to what’s really occurring because our nation’s security depends on it. The State of Arizona is providing voluntary transportation for asylum seekers only to Washington, D.C., not NY.”

According to the New York Post, the federal government has flown illegal immigrants to New York since August 2021.
The illegal immigrants arrive at the Westchester County Airport and then get on buses to places including the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens.
The New York City Department of Homeless Services says, “there are 28,885 individuals classed as a member of ‘family with children’ in the shelter system as of Sunday. The stat is 12% higher than it had in March and 12% higher than this time last year.”
Jeffrey Harris shared a room with three illegal migrants at a men’s shelter and said, “If we can’t take care of the homeless here, how can we take immigrants? They get all the resources in the world, but the ones who are here and homeless seem like they are forgotten about.”
Fox News National Correspondent Bill Melugin cut to the heart of the matter on Twitter and said, “Now that cities like NYC & DC are seeing a small sample of what tiny TX & AZ border towns deal with daily, perhaps they’ll get some perspective on what it was like for Del Rio, TX, a population of 35,000, to have over 15,000 Haitians arrive in their city at once last September.”

And the blame for this can be placed squarely on an administration that simply will not do what it takes to keep our borders secure, or even recognize that they exist.
