New York City’s Democrat Mayor Eric Adams has declared a state of emergency over the migrants being bused to th city from border states like Texas and Arizona.
It’s fascinating how quickly this became such a major problem for the city, considering that they’re dealing with just a tiny fraction of what the border states see every single day.
It must also be noted that New York has vastly more resources than small border towns.
NYC Mayor Declares a State of Emergency Over Migrants Being Bused to the City By TX
New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) officially declared a state of emergency on Friday over the number of processed and released migrants arriving to the city by bus amid the ongoing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Adams said the state of emergency declaration will better allow the city to marshal resources to provide housing and basic needs to the people arriving on a daily basis on buses provided by the state of Texas. Adams said a relief center will be built on Randall’s Island to house hundreds of people, but warned at the rate of the arrivals, it will be filled within days of opening.
Adams revealed around 17,000 migrants have been bused to New York City by Texas and the city of El Paso since April 2022. By contrast, Border Patrol agents in the Del Rio Sector in Texas encountered over 233,000 illegal immigrants between April and August of this year.

None of this is going to change until leaders in blue states feel the pain that their policies create for others.
They must be made to share the burden.
