“Any plan that does not include stopping the flow at the border is a failed plan,” said the Democrat Mayor of New York City, Eric Adams.

While Republicans have repeatedly pointed out the obvious since early 2021, liberal Democrats are finally coming to terms with the reality that the Biden Border Crisis is hurting the country.

It has gotten so bad, even the leaders of Democrat strongholds like New York City and Massachusetts are throwing in the towel. They can’t handle the strain that the massive influx of people has had on their city and state.

And New Yorkers are certainly ready to move past the crisis. In a recent poll, 58% of New York City residents said that their city has already “done enough for new migrants and should now work to slow the flow of migrants to New York.”

While New York Democrats complain that it’s unfair for Biden’s open-border crisis to be New York’s problem, they’ve taken no action to actually solve the crisis. Every single congressional Democrat voted against H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act. If enacted into law, this border security bill would immediately restart construction on the wall and hire more border patrol agents to stop the flow that has created the crisis throughout the country.

Instead, Mayor Adams is begging the Democrat Governor of New York to take people from NYC and bus them into the suburban and rural counties that surround the city.

But New York’s Republican congressional delegation isn’t having any of Democrats’ finger-pointing. In a letter to Mayor Adams and New York Governor Kathy Hochul, Rep. Nick LaLota, Rep. Elise Stefanik, Rep. Anthony D’Esposito, Rep. Nick Langworthy, Rep. Andrew Garbarino, Rep. Claudia Tenney, and Rep. Mike Lawler said their constituents should not “incur the financial and public safety burden” caused by the policy decisions of New York City’s elected officials.

Mayor Adams is right: “New York City deserves better.” It’s time for New York’s very own Senator Schumer and his Senate Democrats to pass the Secure the Border Act to end this Biden-created crisis.
