In August, Mayor Eric Adams announced a new plan to demolish abandoned dining sheds.
“These deserted dining sheds have become eyesores for neighbors and havens for rats, and we are going to tear them down, ” he said. “And, with this initiative, we are also taking the essential step toward a permanent Open Restaurants program that all New Yorkers can be proud of every day. I want to say it loud and clear: Outdoor dining is here to stay.”

Waves Of Military-Aged, Chinese Males Are Surging Our Border
You already know the Biden administration is responsible for record numbers of illegal border crossings after advertising they would not deport people for breaking the law to come here. And while Biden and his team claim they are doing everything possible to contain the situation, this is clearly an intentional act that is now responsible for seven million illegals gaining entry into our nation. In fact, the number of illegal crossings under President Biden in just over two years is already higher than the number under Presidents Obama and Trump combined over 12 years.
But the bad news gets even worse. House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green (R-Tennessee) says border officials report an alarming number of single, military-aged Chinese males coming to our border. Green breaks down the danger this poses to our national security and details the House GOP legislation to restore order to the border. Green also urges Americans across the country to contact their lawmakers in Washington and demand they secure our nation. He says members of Congress can ignore ten messages, but they will think a lot differently if they get 10,000.
