Republicans have proven them to be massive hypocrites.
No sooner than Joe Biden was led into the Oval Office following his inauguration, he got to work signing a two-foo-high stack of executive orders, many of which undid Trump's immigration and border security policies -- policies that were so effective, illegal immigration had fallen to record lows and the border was the most secure it had been in decades.
That told the world's poor that a) U.S. borders were wide open again; and a) anyone who wanted to come could come and they'd be welcomed with open arms (and U.S. taxpayer benefits).
Naturally, the border states were hit the hardest and the fastest, but after more than two years of dealing with Biden's open borders and getting nowhere with the regime, GOP governors began fighting back. They began bussing and flying illegals into blue states and cities where "sanctuary city" majors and governors could 'welcome them with open arms.'
Only now, after several months of shipping migrants north, blue city leaders like NYC's Adams have become so inundated with illegals they have run out of resources to take care of them -- and they're complaining about having to deal with so many.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams claimed that the migrant crisis is so bad that 50% of all hotel rooms in the city are being occupied by illegal aliens.
Adams made the comments on Wednesday while addressing criticism for his handling of the crisis.
“In order to address an onslaught, you have to have places you can put people. Almost half of all hotel rooms now are taken up by asylum seekers. Think about that. I’m not sure what it’s going to take before people hear what I am saying," said Adams during a press briefing in Harlem.
“New York City is the hotel capital. We’re the hotel capital — tourism, visitors, sporting events, graduations,” he added. “It’s a major economic engine for us. Almost 50% of those hotel rooms are being taken up by migrant asylum seekers.”
But even members of his own party are claiming that his numbers are fabrications.
“It would be impossible,” said City Councilwoman Diana Ayala, according to the New York Daily News. “The math doesn’t add up.”
According to other officials, approximately 65,000 migrants have arrived in New York City in recent months. Many of these individuals have been accommodated in temporary locations such as public school gyms, emergency relief shelters, and certain homeless shelters.
As for Adams, he demanded -- of course -- that taxpayers pay more to solve his problem.
“Instead of monies coming from people who are visiting us and spending and our tourism and our Broadway plays — instead of them using those hotels, we’re using those hotels,” he whined.
Since President Joe Biden took office in January 2021, millions of migrants have attempted to cross the southern border illegally into the United States. The surge has led to a major humanitarian and political crisis, with many individuals and families facing difficult conditions at overcrowded detention centers and border facilities.
One of the main drivers of the migrant surge under Biden has been the reversal of some of the Trump administration's immigration policies, such as the "Remain in Mexico" policy and the "Title 42" public health order. Trump's policies had effectively blocked many migrants from seeking asylum in the United States, but the Biden administration has sought to roll them back in order to restore a more 'humane and compassionate' approach to immigration.
This is a problem of Democrat making -- after Democrats claimed to be so welcoming and tolerant of people whose first official act in the U.S. was to break immigration law.
