New York City (NYC) is reportedly reassessing its ‘right to shelter’ policies – a legal requirement in the city – as illegal immigrants continue being shipped there by Republican governors.
The potential shift in policy comes as Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey have sent thousands of illegal immigrants – allegedly all “asylum seekers” – via bus to the city.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) has complained repeatedly about illegal immigrants arriving in New York, despite being a “sanctuary city.”
“We expect thousands more to arrive every week going forward,” he said. “The city’s system is nearing its breaking point.”
The mayor’s office claims 11,000 illegal immigrants have arrived from Texas. The Border Patrol reports that in just July of this year, they encountered 200,000 crossers, or 6,500 per day, so you can imagine New York’s complaints about 11,000 aren’t flying with many.
If 11,000 illegal immigrants sends a city, which if it were an independent nation would have the [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_New_York_(state)#:~:text=The economy of the State,largest economy in the world.]10th largest economy[/url] in the world, into a spiral, what do they suppose nearly 2 million pouring into the United States will do to the country as a whole?
Brendan McGuire, the chief counsel to Mayor Adams, admits the city must reassess its ‘right to shelter’ practices amidst the influx.
“We are reassessing the city’s practices with respect to the right to shelter,” McGuire said, according to ABC News. “It is important — because we don’t exist in a vacuum – to reconsider the practices that the city developed that flow from the right to shelter.”
In July, a spokesman for Adams touted the city’s shelter policies.
Yuma, AZ has 250,000 migrants in a city of 100,000 But Eric Adams says New York is at "breaking point" from 10,000. Pritzker declared a state of emergency over 500. Martha's Vineyard called in the military to deport 50. No more lectures from Democrats about "compassion" please.
