New York Mayor: Illegal Immigration A ‘Real Burden’

Eric Adams, who is mayor of a sanctuary city, now says illegal immigration is a “real burden” on government resources

New York City Mayor Eric Adams is starting to realize that being a “sanctuary city” for illegal immigrants is not a sustainable lifestyle to maintain.

Adams commented on his speech that helping illegal immigrants is “a real burden on New Yorkers.”

“This is a real burden on New Yorkers as we’re trying to do the right thing. We already have an overburdened shelter system,” said the former police officer. “Now we’re talking about food, clothing, school. This is going to impact our schools because we do not turn away individuals because they are undocumented.”

In just over a year, Adams has started to walk back on his “New York City is, and has always been, a City of immigrants” position he espoused on the campaign trail.

As the the United States chafes under near-record inflation and high prices, citizens of The Big Apple will have a harder time accessing healthcare, food, and tax-funded federal programs that they rely on in a city that’s already among America’s expensive.

In a recent survey, 1 in 5 New Yorkers have considered starting an OnlyFans account just to make ends meet of living in the city. If citizens weren’t paying a combined sales tax of nearly 9%, than perhaps people wouldn’t feel the need to get a second job, or sell their body on the internet.

Adams has claimed that 2,800 people have entered the city’s homeless shelter population in recent weeks due to being bused in from other parts of the country.

“In order to both meet the legal mandate as a right-to-shelter city and provide high-quality shelter and services for those who enter our system, New York City needs additional federal resources immediately,” Adams said.

In 2019, New York lawmakers passed the Green Light Law which allows illegal immigrants to get a driver’s license. Food pantries continue to close across the city but the flow of immigrants is growing.

“Now, Washington, D.C. is having to realize, in a very minimal way, exactly what Texas is having to deal with as a result of the open border policies that the Biden Administration has allowed,” said Governor Abbott in a statement.

District of Columbia Mayor Bower has also complained about the influx of illegal immigrants flooding the her city, claiming that immigrants are “being tricked into getting on buses” that will take them to D.C.

“Well, this is a very significant issue. We have for sure called on the federal government to work across state lines to prevent people from really being tricked into getting on buses. We think they’re largely asylum seekers who are going to final destinations that are not Washington, D.C. I worked with the White House to make sure that FEMA provided a grant to a local organization that is providing services to folks. I fear that they’re being tricked into nationwide bus trips when their final destinations are places all over the United States of America,” Bowser has stated.

The Texas governor has bused illegal immigrants from the southern border to Washington D.C., where some apparently then traveled to New York City.

    mayor adams… a very small man with a very large ego… He is a ABSOLUTE RACIST.. while running he spoke to a group of black constituents , & he told them a story of how, & I quote, ” I Kept THOSE CRACKERS ( NYPD WHITE OFFICERS ) in Line “. He’s all about celebrity , Dressing up , & JIVE -TIME us NEW YORKERS… When he was a Brooklyn Burro ( this is a intentional misspelling ) President , he was being investigated for misappropriation of FUNDS…ALL GOT SWEPT UNDER the CARPET… He is a CHARLATAN like his pal the Rearend Al , they pride themselves in the art of the SHAKE-DOWN for personal gains…. The mayors’ complexion , is his PROTECTION…. just like al.

      The only comment Adam ever made that is partially accurate, N.Y.C. is a city of immigrants. However,he neglected to complete the statement, of legal immigrants as opposed to illegal criminals.

    Isn’t it amazing how quickly their understanding clarifies when they are confronted with the responsibility and burdens that come with huge influxes of ILLEGAL immigrants?

    Racist Eric Adams is a failure, he is David Dinkins on steroids, a complete and total failure. He was a bad and incompetent cop, a corrupt Borough President and is a disastrous mayor.

      NYC is getting what it deserves. They voted for this corrupt clown instead of Curtis Sliwa.

    Wah, wah, wah. Different when it happens to you instead of Texas and Arizona isn’t it NY. You Demonrats have managed to ruin CA and the Big Apple too. Then there’s the killing fields of Chicago. Funny how much they appear to care about Afro Americans yet not much crying over the murders in these big cities. Actions speak louder than words.

    Criminal aliens may be a burden to NYC but not as much of a burden as “mayor” Eric Adams and ” Accidental Governor Corrupt Kathy Hochul.

Texas and Florida should keep sending ILLEGALS to New York , California and especially D.C. !!!
