After bus after bus of illegal aliens were dumped into New York City from Texas over the course of the last year, increasing crime and draining the city of essential resources, Mayor Eric Adams has officially waved the white flag of surrender, and is now begging the courts to somehow find a way to end NYC’s official “sanctuary” status.
Adams, who once championed and promised to maintain the metropolitan’s “sanctuary city” status when he was running for mayor, appeared in court this past week begging a judge to reevaluate the whole thing.

This Ain’t Working!
Adams spoke to the press after his appearance to justify his about-face on this issue:
“The law of sanctuary city was in place long before I became mayor. I’m following the law. As a law enforcement person, you know, we follow the law. We are now in court now, today, asking the judge to revisit this law to deal with this humanitarian crisis because, even when they decided to put in place that law, no one thought they would be dealing with a humanitarian crisis of this proportion.”
According to Timcast.com, “Mayor Adams issued an executive order suspending the city’s right-to-shelter rules on Wednesday night. Under this policy, the city was required to locate private rooms for asylum seekers.”
Adams had this week already referred to the crisis NYC is facing as “a real burden,” finally admitting that this acceptance of illegal aliens and otherwise undocumented economic opportunists into the city, who overflowed hotels and were treated to a myriad of other tax payer provided resources, was too much for the people of NYC to handle.

A spokesperson for the Adams administration relayed once again the critical concern that this immigration crisis was having on the citizens of NYC, attempting to highlight their successes while still pointing out the very obvious strain it was having.
“Not asylum seeking-family that has sought shelter from us over the last year has slept on the street thanks to our colossal efforts, but without more support from our federal and state partners, we are concerned the worst may be yet to come.
“With over 130 emergency sites and eight humanitarian relief centers already opened, we have reached out limit, and last week we had to resort to temporarily housing recent arrivals in gyms,” the spokesperson continued. “In an effort to mitigate those risks and find room within our shelter system, the city has temporarily suspended the policy surrounding timing for placements in shelters.”
A report from the non-profit Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) pointed out that over 61,000 illegal aliens arrived in NYC over the past year, and roughly 40,000 are currently receiving some form of taxpayer provided benefits such as “housing, food, and other benefits.”
“Mayor Adams estimates that the Biden administration’s immigration policies will cost the city $4.3 billion in 2023 and 2024,” the report stated. “These costs were not included in a recent FAIR cost study that found New York was home to 1.8 million illegal aliens which cost taxpayers $9.9 billion.”

At least some of that billions of dollars could be spent sending these mostly military age men back home.
no way Jose , they will keep coming by the hundreds and thousands , perhaps millions until New York is a 5th world city
One of the few things the dumb ass has done right.
And ANOTHER Democrat proves his/her racism.
This is what happens when the liberal fantasy world runs headlong into reality. NYC was fine with the fantasy, but when reality hit, it was “no, no, no. We didn’t mean us, we meant the border states. We’re fine with the border states which are a thousand miles away, taking care of them. We didn’t mean WE wanted to do it, even though we invited them”
Well, first they should revisit the law that does not open borders to ILLEGAL ALIENS!
What is the matter with democrats?
I think maybe they are just plain stupid to reality and their work revolves around personal graft.
What’s wrong with them? They live in a fantasy world. Like when they wanted to put windmills off the east coast, the Kennedy’s were all” We’re all for windmills, just not in our back yard. They’re an eyesore”
Now with the illegal alien situation, they’re all for the fantasy of being a sanctuary city or state, but when they have to man up and practice what they preach, THEY want someone else to take care of it. Its all about the visuals.
Mr. Big Shot when declaring sanctuary city but now you have to pay the price and you squeal like a pig. Well, the outer counties don’t want your mistakes and will return them asap. There are always consequences for your actions. Think ahead the next time. Engage brain before putting mouth into gear
Stupidity has no boundaries. Why on earth you morons, would you think they would want to work when they get a paycheck every month for doing nothing…oh wait, you get one for doing nothing also.
The expense of maintaining all of these illegals should be placed directly upon the people who voted for the nut cases that are in office that have allowed this crisis to happen. In other words every Democrat should have a tax levied upon them to the extent that would cover the estimated cost of this Democratic Party’s induced dilemma
To Mayor Adams, who got caught trying to ship illegals to northern NYS.
How do you spell the word I M B i C I L E ?
well how stupid are you to not even know that..?? why dont you let all these criminals do harm to your family members and then let them go..oh what that isnot ok..well what in the hell do you think you have been doing?? are you that stupid?? why would you not put these crimanls in jail..j.you got what you deserved..nothing…lock up these criminals..
hey , don’t worry , they will keep coming about 1 million of them
Seriously, why did it take these Morons until now to figure out this was going to be a problem? I’m sorry, you named yourself as a Sanctuary City which led to open borders by an idiot administration and now you just have to suck it up buttercup. Let’s see if your citizen voters have any common sense to respond accordingly.
