Democrats are a big fan of the double standard.
They believe the old saying “what’s good for the goose is good for the gander” does not apply to them.
And now the Mayor of New York City is doing the exact same thing he scolded and attacked Republicans for doing.
A creative solution by border state Governors
President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have taken the ostrich approach to illegal immigration in the United States.
They call for amnesty and benefits for illegal aliens and then tuck their heads in the sand and ignore the crisis on the southern border.
And it is a crisis, with border states being left to handle it on their own while their hands are tied behind their backs by the Biden administration.
As one part of a multi-faceted solution, some Republican Governors have started sending the border crossers to “sanctuary cities” in Blue states.
A so-called “sanctuary city” is a municipality where policies protect illegal aliens from deportation or prosecution despite federal immigration law.
In other words, these are cities that deliberately ignore and disobey federal immigration laws.
A more accurate name for them would be “harboring havens.”
But now that they’re getting a taste of their own medicine, politicians in these harboring havens are crying foul and complaining about the tactics of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, and former Arizona Governor Doug Ducey.
These Governors sent illegal aliens to Democrat-led sanctuary cities.
Message to Eric Adams – your hypocrisy is showing
One of the harboring havens on the receiving end was New York City.
Governor Abbott sent about 17,000 illegal aliens there on buses.
Mayor Eric Adams was so overwhelmed by just a taste of what border state Governors have to deal with on a daily basis that he issued a state of emergency.
“Thousands of asylum seekers have been bused into New York City and simply dropped off, without notice, coordination, or care — and more are arriving every day,” Mayor Adams said. “This crisis is not of our own making but one that will affect everyone in this city, now and in the months ahead. New Yorkers deserve to know why this is happening and what we plan to do.”
But now Adams is changing his tune.
Instead of attacking DeSantis and Abbott, he is now copying them.
The Washington Examiner is reporting the Democrat Mayor unveiled his new plan in a presentation named “The Road Forward: A Blueprint to Address New York City’s Response to the Asylum Seeker Crisis.”
And what is the plan?
The plan is to give the illegal aliens the boot out of the Big Apple.
“The city is in the early stage of being able to assist asylum seekers in relocating to their preferred city of choice,” Adams said. “Ultimately, New York City isn’t equipped to meet the complex needs of asylum seekers given their current rapid rate of arrival.”
A problem of crisis level proportions
Since President Joe Biden took the oath of office, more than 6.1 million illegal aliens have crossed the southern border.
In 2022, there were nine straight months with at least 200,000 illegal aliens entering America.
And there is no end in sight to the invasion at the border.
In fact, this past January, 156,274 illegal aliens flooded into America – a record high for the month of January.
To put it in perspective, that is the equivalent of the entire city of Charleston, South Carolina crossing the border illegally.
And that doesn’t include the roughly 65,000 “got-aways” each month reported by Border Patrol agents.
According to a new report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, illegal aliens cost American workers $150.7 billion last year alone.
It’s past time for Biden and Harris to get their heads out of the sand.
