The migrant problem, which began shortly after Joe Biden assumed office, has gotten worse. Title 42, an act that allows border officials to more easily turn away migrants at the southern border is ending on Friday. This has led to thousands of people trying to cross the border.
New York City is unable to house and feed all the migrants that are being sent their way. Mayor Eric Adams is struggling to figure out how to feed and house the migrants who are arriving in his city. He has criticized the Biden Administration for not implementing solutions.
Adams has sent migrants to suburbs around these cities, much to their dismay. The mayor doesn’t seem to understand the impact of this situation on the cities he sent these migrants to and has reacted with the usual progressive talking point about racism and intolerance.
Mayor Adams accused Rockland County executive Ed Day of being a “racist” as well as “antisemitic”. This came after Day issued an order to stop Adams from sending buses of asylum seekers into the county. Adams criticised Day’s leadership, and his alleged history of antisemitic comments. However, he didn’t provide any specific examples or evidence to support it.
The mayor stated: “When you consider the County Exec Ed Day, this guy has an antisemitic record, as well as his racist remarks.” “His thoughts and his response to this show a lack in leadership,” the mayor said.
Day replied, telling Fox News Digital Adams “can call every name in a book to deflect reality of this clear disrespect for our laws.” Maybe he could explain his documented “racist remarks”?
Rockland County, which claimed that the relocation was in violation of local zoning laws, obtained a temporary restraint order. Adams, on the other hand, was steadfast and stated his intention to fight any legal obstacles. He claimed that restricting movement in the state would create a dangerous precedent.
The conflict between Adams Day centers around the plan of housing several hundred asylum seekers at hotels in Orange County and Rockland County. Local leaders from Orange and Rockland counties have been opposed to Adams’ plan. This has led to the temporary restraining orders.
Adams stressed that New York City will continue its relocation efforts. He also denounced attempts by the court to deny individuals the right to move in the state. He stressed the importance of challenging legal barriers in order to allow individuals to move to New York.
Adams had been sending migrants to Hudson Valley hotels. The Armani Inn, located in Orangeburg, was selected as the latest shelter. The city struck a deal with its owners to accommodate hundreds of migrants.
This decision has caused dissatisfaction in Rockland County officials as well as local residents, who were not notified or given the chance to express their opinion. Up to 300 asylum seekers may be transferred to two hotels as soon as this weekend. This includes the Orangeburg Hotel and another one in Orange Lake, Orange County.
Rockland County residents and officials are frustrated by the lack of consultation regarding the plan for migrant shelters. Orangetown Supervisor Teresa Kenny confirmed that Mayor Eric Adams had informed her in a courteous call of the decision, clarifying it wasn’t a request for approval. Local authorities were disappointed by this revelation, as they had many unanswered queries about the sudden influx in migrants to their community.
Adams’ race baiting attack on Day is an attempt to divert the attention from the real problem: Biden’s administration failing to take effective action in dealing with the migrant crises. Adams’ personal attacks and accusations could be an attempt to divert attention from the true problem: the lack of effective action by the Biden administration in addressing the migrant crisis.
It appears that the mayor, who has previously criticized Biden’s administration, is now taking a breather from speaking about the real problem which has brought New York City to this current situation. Adams must deal with the person who is responsible for the problem if he wants to find a solution. It seems Adams prefers to spend his time berating people for being racist. It’s funny how things work out.
