NYC Dem. Mayor Shipping Out Illegals from His Sanctuary City

(Headline USA) New York City Democrat Mayor Eric Adams unveiled a policy plan this week to “resettle” migrants who have traveled to the Big Apple in other parts of the country.

The plan, titled “The Road Forward: A Blueprint to Address New York City’s Response to the Asylum Seeker Crisis,” would create a new government agency, the Office of Asylum Seeker Operations,” to “ensure that all asylum seekers are aware of relocation opportunities,” according to Politico.

Adams admitted the policy is the result of an overwhelming influx of illegal immigrants into New York, which proudly proclaims itself as a sanctuary city.

“As of March 2023, there were 79,937 people in shelter placement in New York City (including humanitarian relief centers) — a 77% increase since the start of the Adams administration on January 1st, 2022. This is due in large part to the influx of newcomers. Our shelter system is full, and we are running out of funds, staff, and space,” the policy brief reads.

There must be a “comprehensive response from all levels of government,” Adams said, especially from our state and federal partners.”

“The city is also in the early stage of being able to assist asylum seekers in relocating to their preferred city of choice. Ultimately, New York City isn’t equipped to meet the complex needs of asylum seekers given their current rapid rate of arrival,” the policy brief states.

However, the policy brief does not specify which cities Adams plans to partner with. When asked whether he’s already communicated with other city leaders across the country, Adams said, “There are cities in the state and across the country that … want to play the role. They realize that this is national problem.”

Adams refused to provide further details.

“Please don’t ask me which cities because I don’t need you running to the cities and stopping them,” he said. “I know you enjoy pitting cities against cities, so we are not giving you that information.”
