At the beginning of this drama, New York City’s Mayor Eric Adams was complaining about the illegals overwhelming the city. He pleaded with the Biden administration for help and appeared to be on the verge of telling the truth about the cause of the crisis and then decided to falsely blame Texas and Arizona.
Gov. Abbott in Texas responded by sending some buses with illegal aliens to New York City. And we were off to the races with the fight being used to cover up the truth about what was happening. Now Adams has come a little closer to telling the truth.
The ongoing surge of migrants into the Big Apple could soon reach 75,000, Mayor Eric Adams predicted Friday — as he compared the impact on the city to that of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The startling figure would represent a staggering, nearly six-fold increase in the estimated 13,600 who’ve made their way to the city since the spring and strained the city’s shelter system to near what Adams has called its “breaking point.”
During an appearance on the Brooklyn-based Caribbean Power Jam internet radio station, Adams said the migrant influx was “up to 13,000 now.”
“And we could get anywhere from 50 to 75,” he said.
The actual number of illegals sent to New York City by Texas is 2,500.
Mayor Eric Adams has said that the migrants arriving in New York City are largely being sent to shelters in a system that is “nearing its breaking point,” as beds are running out for individuals seeking a place to stay.
2,500 isn’t doing it. And the number is likely a whole lot more than the 13,000 documented.
While busing illegals is a great move, it diverts attention from the fact that the majority of illegals, (at least outside Martha’s Vineyard) were not sent to blue states or cities by Republican governors, but by Biden’s open borders and the nonprofit collaborators and the assorted midnight flights. Democrats can’t talk about it. And blaming Republicans becomes a convenient way to avoid talking about the real source of the problem.
