New York City pathetically claimed it “has done more than any other city in the last 18 months to meet this national humanitarian crisis” referring the influx of illegal immigrants into the United States.

The laughable comment was made in a letter to state Supreme Court justice Erika Edwards from NYC’s senior counsel Daniel Perez, on behalf of Democratic mayor Eric Adams. The letter’s intention is to ask the court to end the city’s right-to-shelter order which was passed in 1981 and reads: “We seek only the immediate relief that present circumstances demand. New York City has done more than any other city in the last 18 months to meet this national humanitarian crisis.”

“The Judgment’s onerous terms are demonstrably ill-suited to present circumstances and restrain the City at a time when flexibility to deal with the emergency is paramount” the letter continues.

Now that liberal cities have began to experience the traumatic repercussions of the migrant crisis at our borders, their leaders are finally taking action. On Wednesday Mayor Adams took a four-day trip to Mexico, Colombia, and Ecuador in order to dissuade potential migrants from traveling to New York City after crossing the southern border, according to Politico. “We want to give people a true picture of what is here,” Adams said at a Tuesday press briefing. “We are at capacity.”

National Review reports that while visiting the three nations in Central and South America, the mayor will appear on radio stations, television channels, and in local newspapers as part of a campaign effort to combat misinformation about the city’s employment and luxury opportunities which are originating from migrant smugglers and social-media platforms.

“We need to counteract those forms of communications that are basically saying, ‘You come to the City of New York, you’re going to automatically have a job, you’re going to be in a five star hotel,’” Adams added.

Still, he called an open southern border “the official position of the city.”

DOJ federal indictment connects Sinaloa Cartel and Chinese ‘underground banking’

The Justice Department (DOJ) announced a huge connection between Chinese organized crime and the Sinaloa drug cartel. In a press release the DOJ reported a 10-count superseding indictment charging Los Angeles-based associates of Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel with conspiring with money-laundering groups linked to Chinese underground banking to launder drug trafficking proceeds. During the conspiracy, more than $50 million in drug proceeds flowed between the Sinaloa Cartel associates and Chinese underground money exchanges.”

The indictment was the result of a multi-year investigation into the conspiracy—dubbed “Operation Fortune Runner”— unsealed on Monday charging a total of 24 defendants with one count of conspiracy to aid and abet the distribution of cocaine and methamphetamine, one count of conspiracy to launder monetary instruments, and one count of conspiracy to operate an unlicensed money transmitting business, according to the press release.

“Dangerous drugs like fentanyl and methamphetamine are destroying people’s lives but drug traffickers only care about their profits,” said United States Attorney Martin Estrada. “To protect our community, therefore, it is essential that we go after the sophisticated, international criminal syndicates that launder the drug money. As this indictment and our international actions show, we will be dogged in our pursuit of all those who facilitate destruction in our country and make sure they are held accountable for their actions.”

“Drug traffickers generate immense amounts of cash through their illicit operations. This case is a prime example of Chinese money launderers working hand in hand with drug traffickers to try to legitimize profits generated by drug activities,” said Chief Guy Ficco of IRS Criminal Investigation. “We have made it a priority to identify, disrupt, and dismantle any money launderers working with drug cartels and we are committed to our partnerships with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to combat drug cartels and those who assist them in laundering drug proceeds.”

The Justice.Gov website explains of the indictment: “Following close coordination with the Justice Department, Chinese and Mexican law enforcement informed United States authorities that those countries recently arrested fugitives named in the superseding indictment who fled the United States after they were initially charged last year.”
