New York City Mayor Eric Adams confirmed on Monday that a female illegal migrant committed suicide on Sunday in a city shelter. He promptly placed the blame squarely on Governor Abbott. He called it a man-made humanitarian crisis.
I’ll agree with the mayor, it is a man-made humanitarian crisis. However, the man who made it is Joe Biden, not Greg Abbott. Mayor Adams can’t rewrite history. Joe Biden ran for president and promised to undo everything that the previous administration did to secure the border with Mexico. He promised to freeze deportations of illegal immigrants already in the country. And he pledged to work toward blanket amnesty for illegal aliens. All of this was music to the ears of would-be migrants and they started coming to the border even before Joe Biden was sworn into office. They are still coming. In the first two years of the Biden administration, the U.S. in on track to apprehend about four million illegal migrants. It is, in fact, an humanitarian crisis. It’s also a national security crisis and a crisis of our nation’s sovereignty.
Adams is spreading lies just like the other mayors of sanctuary cities who receive migrant buses. The illegal migrants are all asked where they want to go and sign consent forms when they are released by Border Patrol agents. Guess what? Most of them say they want to go to New York City. The buses are well-equipped with pallets of water bottles, food, and supplies to make the illegal migrants comfortable on their trip. No one is “tricked” or forced to board a bus. The passengers are happy for free transportation to wherever it is they want to go.
