The last thing Biden needs is division in his party. Without absolute unity, his hopes in 2024 will be dashed.
And this Democrat stronghold makes one move that has Biden sweating bullets.
New York City is under a lot of pressure right now facing a number of issues like overwhelming immigration numbers and skyrocketing crime.
However, instead of providing a solution, they have just made cuts that will only make the problems worse.
Currently, there are 110,000 migrants in New York City that Mayor Adams estimates will cost the city over $12 billion over the next three years.
Along with the massive influx of migrants, crime in New York City has absolutely skyrocketed.
Yet, the city just revealed that the police and fire departments are facing overtime cuts to help fund the illegal immigrants flocking to NYC.
There are already police shortages and rising crime rates, yet the Democrats think the solution is to cut work for police?
One official, however, says the cut will be impossible.
Patrick Hendry, the head of the Police Benevolent Association says, “It is going to be impossible for the NYPD to significantly reduce overtime unless it fixes its staffing crisis. We are still thousands of cops short, and we’re struggling to drive crime back to pre-2020 levels without adequate personnel.”
The decision to cut overtime comes just a few days after Mayor Adams had this chilling statement for the public.
“Let me tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I did not see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this. This issue will destroy New York City. Destroy New York City”
There are 21,000 immigrant children starting school this year in NYC, and new asylum seekers are costing the city approximately $10 million every single day.
The crisis is real and scary, yet the left refuses to address any real issues.
Instead of fixing our border security or having infrastructure in place, the left decides to cut funding for the police?
Texas Governor Abbott’s press secretary said that, “Instead of complaining about 13,000 migrants sent from Texas, Mayor Adams should be calling out his party leader, President Biden, who has been flying planeloads of migrants all around the country and oftentimes in the cover of night, straining state and local resources across the country.”
It is clear that this issue is coming from Joe Biden, and not from border states.
The border states are themselves flooded with illegal immigrants, yet they never offered to house them.
Radical Left cities and states did however offer to house the immigrants, yet when immigrants are sent to them, they scream and cry and complain.
The left’s hypocrisy is on full display for all to see.
The immigrant crisis is one that needs to be addressed NOW, and the border needs to be locked down to solve the problem instead of just cutting funding to police.
America needs leaders who will support Americans more than foreigners.
