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.”
Canadian-U.S. border illegal crossings up 240% over previous year
The vulnerability of the northern border of the United States is being weaponized in the war on illegal migration. 2023 saw a 240% increase of individuals apprehended from just one year prior. Not only is the border with Canada significantly longer than its border with Mexico, but its ports of entry are often understaffed while the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is forced to prioritize the southern surge.
According to recent data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in 2023 authorities halted over 12,000 migrants attempting illegal crossings at the Canadian border. The number is a 240% increase from the preceding year when 3,579 individuals were apprehended.
ADN America reports that approximately 70% of the illegal crossings took place along a 295-mile stretch along the northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire border called the Swanton Sector.
Chief patrol agent for the sector, Robert Garcia, posted on social media that the 3,100 individuals apprehended were from 55 different countries.
Garcia wrote “the record-breaking surge of illegal entries from Canada continues in Swanton Sector” and he specifically mentioned that the arrest of 10 Bangladeshi citizens was prompted by a citizen’s report in Champlain, New York.
Surprisingly, ADN reports:
A significant number of those engaging in illegal crossings are Mexicans who exploit the opportunity to fly to Canada without a visa, also avoiding the presence of cartels in their home countries.
Experts suggest that migrants can purchase a $350 one-way plane ticket from Mexico City or Cancun to Montreal or Toronto. This route is perceived as offering a lower likelihood of being turned away compared to those crossing the southern border.
