Leftist New York City Mayor Eric Adams recently doubled down on his immigration hypocrisy. The mayor of the illegal alien “sanctuary city” declared a state of emergency as illegal aliens continue being bused from Texas to the Big Apple. He has repeatedly bragged about the city being a sanctuary for illegals. Now, he is flip-flopping big time.
Eric Adams declared a state of emergency due Friday due to New York City’s migrant crisis now flooding homeless shelters. New York City’s homelessness has spiked in recent years, going up by thousands in just the past decade, along with a raise in crime throughout the city. Now, Eric Adams is forced to admit that his city can’t handle what Democrats have been putting southern through for decades.
The Daily Wire reports:
“This is a humanitarian crisis that started with violence and instability in South America and is being accelerated by American political dynamics,” Adams said. “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.”
“This crisis is not one of our own making, but one that will affect everyone in this city,” he continued, noting that many of the asylum-seekers could not legally work in the United States and would need far more than a few meals or a bed for a night or two — and he argued that took resources away from New Yorkers in need.
“New Yorkers are angry. I’m angry, too. We have not asked for this,” he added. “There was never any agreement to take on the job of supporting thousands of asylum seekers.”

The City has thus far designated 42 hotels to serve as temporary homeless shelters while enrolling over 5,000 illegal immigrant children in the appropriate schools. He says the city is set to spend $1 billion to manage the illegal immigrant influx.
