Welcome to reality, New York City. On Friday, Mayor Eric Adams was forced to acknowledge the immigration crisis, albeit selfishly, and declared a state of emergency as the result of in response to an influx of migrants arriving in the Big Apple.

Adams said at least 17,000 asylum seekers have arrived in the city by bus from other parts of the country since April. An average of five to six buses per day have arrived since September, he said.

Only 17,000 asylum seekers have come to the city since April; a small drop in the bucket compared to what southern border states have experienced. Nonetheless, the mayor said the city’s homeless shelters, are facing a “crisis” as one-in-five people in the shelter system is a migrant.

“This is a humanitarian crisis that started with violence and instability in South America and is being accelerated by American political dynamics,” Adams said Friday. “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.”

Adams added that the “crisis is not of our own making” but 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,” he said. This is why, New Yorkers: poor liberal policies that have undone all border security as well as any resemblance of order and system in the immigration system.

Adams issued an executive order directing the relevant city agencies to coordinate their efforts to respond to the “crisis” and to build emergency response and relief centers.

The city expects to spend $1 billion by the end of the fiscal year helping the migrants find long-term shelter and health care.

National Review reports:

Customs and Border Protection recorded 203,597 migrant encounters at the U.S.–Mexico border in August alone, bringing the total number of encounters for the fiscal year to more than 2 million for the first time ever. Border cities have been hardest hit by the crisis.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott began busing migrants from the Lone Star State to New York City and Washington, D.C., in the spring. 

Abbott previously said he decided to send busloads of migrants to Washington, D.C., and New York City “because of President Biden’s continued refusal to acknowledge the crisis caused by his open border policies,” saying that “the State of Texas has had to take unprecedented action to keep our communities safe.”

“In addition to Washington, D.C., New York City is the ideal destination for these migrants, who can receive the abundance of city services and housing that Mayor Eric Adams has boasted about within the sanctuary city,” he said when the first bus arrived in New York.

While Adams has been critical of Abbott, the Democratic mayor of El Paso, Texas, has sent more migrants to New York City than the governor has, per Fox News. The border city has bused more than 2,500 migrants to New York City since the end of August.

Mayorkas Doesn’t Want to Enforce the Law

The crisis at the southern border cannot be understated and it affects you and your country. As military-age Chinese nationals with connections to the People’s Liberation Army seep through our porous southern border, American officials have been caught coordinating with the Mexican government to bring in even more migrants to our overflowing detention centers and border towns.

On today’s episode, Sara takes us back to the night that Title 42 fell and a conversation she had with the Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall. They discuss the absolute dereliction of duty by our leaders and what Sen. Marshall would do if he had the president’s ear. The senator also shares the fears of his constituents and their concerns with the fentanyl, violence, and trafficking flowing freely across our border every day.

As Senator Marshall explained from the Senate floor, this could be easily solved with a stroke of the pen from our cowardly president, but Joe Biden simply refuses. This lack of action is a knife in the back of the American people and must be met with an outcry for justice, order, and accountability from every state in our union.
