This week, people in New York rallied outside of Mayor Eric Adams’s (D) home, Gracie Mansion, against the city’s plans to put migrant camps within residential areas.
When people who wanted open borders turned up to protest against them, people in the area started shouting, “Pasty white liberals!”
People in New York are upset that thousands of illegal immigrants and people who crossed the border illegally are going to live in their areas. Staten Islanders are most upset that Adams wants to put migrants in the old St. John Villa Academy, which is right in the middle of a close-knit neighborhood.
When the city challenged the ruling, a different judge swiftly reversed the temporary injunction that had prevented Adams from harboring border crossers and illegal aliens at the old school.
One person from Staten Island told CBS News, “This is not fair. My tax dollars aren’t supposed to be going to this,” said one resident, while another told people in the neighborhood who were protesting the settling of migrants not to give up.
New York City residents are mostly ignored when it comes to the migrant problem, but New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D) has established a job placement program for border crossers and illegal aliens that is going to link them with businesses in the state.
Since last spring, over 100,000 border crossers and illegal immigrants have come to New York. Most of them don’t have any connections to this country and are still in the care of New York City, which will cost taxpayers approximately $12 billion by the middle of 2025.
