This is a hell of a thing. I thought all the Progressives in New York City were very supportive of illegal immigration, and happy with their status as a sanctuary city. That they really wanted to help out all these poor, downtrodden refugees from Mexico, Central America, and South America. No?
Since tens of thousands of migrants began arriving in New York City last year, the administration of Mayor Eric Adams has searched for one place after another to house them: hotels, parking lots, a cruise ship terminal and a pair of giant tents on Randall’s Island among them. Almost every idea has caused an uproar.
Now, the daily stream of migrants feeding the crisis has doubled in size in recent weeks, city officials say. As many as 700 migrants are arriving each day in the city — up from less than half that number since the expiration last Thursday of Title 42, a Trump-era policy that allowed immigration officials to expel some border crossers back to Mexico.
Whoa, whoa, I thought the Credentialed Media was telling us that the number of border crossers wasn’t that bad?
With no clear solutions at hand, the city turned to shelter some migrants in public school gyms starting last week. That plan, like many others before it, was almost immediately met with outrage — not only from activists and human rights groups, but also from public school parents and the ranks of everyday New Yorkers.
Why would the activists and human rights groups (ie, mostly white liberal do-gooders who refuse to get their own hands dirty) be against housing the illegals? Is it because they do not want them in their own areas? Well, of course. Same with Democrat voting, illegal alien supporting NYC residents. It’s fine when the illegals are Over There, not in their own areas
That new influx of arrivals has forced the Adams administration to contend with new layers of what was already a humanitarian and economic crisis that the city had spent $1 billion addressing so far, and may cost as much as $4.3 billion through June 2024, according to Williams-Isom. It has strained Adams’ relationship with not only New Yorkers but with President Joe Biden.
Surely NYC liberals would be willing to pay more in taxes and fees to cover this, right?
The arrival of migrants has tested left-leaning cities around the country in particular. In addition to New York, many of the migrants are ending up in places like Chicago, Denver and Washington, D.C., where leaders have sought to emphasize that they are welcome, while at the same time warning that the large numbers of newcomers are straining services.
They’re welcome in theory, not in practice.
On Tuesday, protesters gathered outside P.S. 172 in Brooklyn, one of the schools whose gym was designated as emergency housing for migrants. Some protesters arrived as early as 3 a.m., when they believed migrants might begin to arrive.
Gabriela Vizhnag, 50, the mother of a third grader, said she was “not racist or anti-immigrant” because she had immigrated from Mexico. But she opposed the plan to house people in a school gym with no available showers and only two bathrooms.
“It is not good for the children and it is not humane for the migrants,” she said.
These illegals dealt with worse on their trek to the U.S. border. And, it’s a nice excuse, but, really, the NYC residents do not want them messing up their city.
Activists and legal groups have called on the city to focus on helping people find permanent housing, but New York is in the grip of a long-running housing crisis, and its voucher program has been plagued with troubles.
Are these folks ponying up money and making their own homes available to house the illegals? No, they want Other People to pay, and the illegals to be far away. Seriously, all these Democrats let them in in mass numbers but they never thought what to do with them once they were here.
