New York City has apparently been COMPLETELY overrun by illegal immigrants and the crisis is so bad the city may never recover.
The sanctuary city seems to be regretting that self-made designation big time as more than half of all hotels in the city are filled with illegal aliens who recently crossed the southern border.
For months, Democrat Mayor Eric Adams has been giving out lucrative contracts to the city’s powerful real estate industry which is housing tens of thousands of migrants in hotels. Most recently, for example, New Yorkers are set to foot an annual $75 million bill to put up border crossers and illegal aliens in Manhattan’s iconic Roosevelt Hotel – and that’s just ONE HOTEL!
Adams is now admitting that the recent influx is nothing short of an “onslaught” which Democrat officials are unable to handle – pleading with Joe Biden to spread these illegals all across the United States.
“Almost 50 percent of those hotel rooms are taken up by migrant asylum seekers that we are paying for,” Adams said. “So instead of monies coming from people who are visiting us and spending in our tourism, in our Broadway plays, instead of them using those hotels, we are using those hotels.”
Adams noted that the cost of illegal immigration to New Yorkers, who are paying about $5 million every day to deal with the issue, will far exceed $4.3 billion when lost tourism money is factored in.
“When I take a hotel offline and use it for migrants, then we are not getting those residual impacts,” Adams said. “So there’s the $4.3 [billion], which is going to be higher, I believe.”
Last week, Adams said more than 900 illegal immigrants were arriving in his city every single day!
On top of that, it was revealed earlier in the month that the NYC mayor has been secretly dumping illegals sent to him in other parts of New York without any authority or notice whatsoever.
Rockland County New York Executive Ed Day said that Adams didn’t warn local officials about his plan to send migrants to Rockland County and that Adams “decided he wanted [to be] a sanctuary [city], and he got it. And now he realized he bit off more than he can chew and he can’t handle it.”
But that’s exactly what Democrats do time and time again. They pass absolutely ridiculous policies for the sake of appealing to the bleeding heart liberals and then those very policies eventually lead to their demise – at which point they rely on someone else to come in and clean up the mess they’ve made for the tax-payers they govern over!
