New York City and its Mayor Eric Adams are creating legal consequences for those who do not pander to their liberal immigration policies. Mayor Adams has stated “normal citizens” should be housing the migrants he is bussing around the state in their own homes, and for free. He has already mandated many hotels to give their rooms to migrants, taking them away from paying travelers. Adams has also suggested college dormatories may be next in helping with the migrant crisis which is progressive party has created.

New York City has sued over 30 counties across the state “for issuing emergency executive orders that prohibit local hotels from hosting migrants bussed in by Democratic NYC Mayor Eric Adams” reported the Daily Caller News Foundation. Over 74,000 migrants have arrived in NYC as of June 4, according to the city.

NYC’s lawsuit asks the court to declare all executive orders “null and void,” alleging they are based on “specious claims that the prospect of a few hundred asylum seekers sheltered at [NYC’s] expense would somehow constitute an emergency imperiling public safety.”

“Respondents’ [executive orders] burden and obstruct New York City’s lawful and reasonable efforts to address the ongoing statewide humanitarian crisis in a manner that is explicitly permitted by law and required by this statewide emergency,” the lawsuit alleges.

Adams said in a statement last week that New York City has “virtually on its own” provided for the needs of migrants arriving in the city and has “repeatedly sounded the alarm that [its] shelter system is at capacity.”

“This lawsuit aims to put an end to this xenophobic bigotry and ensure our state acts as one as we work together to manage this humanitarian crisis fairly and humanely, as we have done from the beginning and as we will continue to do,” Adams said.

Illegal migrants refuse to leave Denver encampments, make demands of city including ‘fresh, culturally appropriate’ food and free lawyers

A group of illegal immigrants in Denver is not only refusing to leave encampments, but also have the audacity to take no actions until the city meets its demands. The migrants were organized enough to publish a document with 13 specific demands before they “acquiesce to Denver Human Services’ request to leave the encampments and move to more permanent shelters funded by the city” reports Fox News.

Demands were made following the Denver government obtaining a petition to have the migrants moved, according to the outlet. The Denver mayor has been under pressure from the city’s ongoing migrant crisis, making headlines and receiving stiff backlash earlier this year for proposing budget cuts to the city’s government, including cuts to the city’s police force, to fund more money for dealing with the city’s migrant crisis.

The list of demands was sent to Mayor Mike Johnston and included requests for provisions of “fresh, culturally appropriate” food, no time limits on showers and free immigration lawyers, the outlet reported. Further details of the demands read, “Migrants will cook their own food with fresh, culturally appropriate ingredients provided by the City instead of premade meals – rice, chicken, flour, oil, butter, tomatoes, onions, etc… Shower access will be available without time limits & can be accessed whenever… Medical professional visits will happen regularly & referrals/connections for specialty care will be made as needed.”

The migrants also insisted they get “connection to employment support, including work permit applications for those who qualify,” as well as “Consultations for each person/family with a free immigration lawyer.” The migrants insisted that if these are not met, they will not leave their tent community.

“At the end of the day, what we do not want is families on the streets of Denver,” Jon Ewing, a spokesman for Denver Human Services, told Fox 31.

The current encampment is situated “near train tracks and under a bridge,” Fox 31 noted, adding that it has been there for the last couple of weeks.

Ewing told Fox 31 the city just wants “to get families to leave that camp and come inside,” noting its offer will give migrants “three square meals a day” and the freedom to cook.

He also said the government is willing to work with people to compromise and help them figure out what kind of assistance they qualify for.

Ultimately, Ewing said, the city wants to work with migrants to determine, “What might be something that is a feasible path for you to success that is not staying on the streets of Denver?”
