According to a brand new poll, the vast majority of residents in New York are firmly convinced the immigration crisis at the southern border is going to “destroy” New York City. They are right on the money. As long as the border remains unsealed and illegal migrants are allowed to flood into the country, many of whom slip through the cracks and end up in major cities like NYC that are “sanctuary cities,” these places will be burdened financially, their infrastructure overwhelmed, and the crime rates will rise. It’s an inconvenient truth the left simply tries to ignore, but they can’t turn a blind eye for much longer. People are catching on to what they are really up to.
It seems fairly clear that progressives are attempting to change the demographics in this country in order to boost their chances of winning elections and staying in power, a strategy they deem necessary if they want to see the republic dismantled and replaced with Marxism. All of this is being done because many on the liberal side of the political spectrum actually believe the delusion that mankind can, with the right leaders and right legislation, perfect itself and create a utopian society.
The Daily Wire’s Ben Whitehead wrote, “According to a Siena College poll released Tuesday, 58% of New Yorkers agree with Democrat Mayor Eric Adams’ statement that the crisis – in which over 118,000 illegal immigrants have arrived in the city since last year – will ‘destroy’ the Big Apple. And while the people in the state blame all levels of government for the crisis, most place the blame on President Biden.”
“While other issues in Washington and abroad have largely driven the news cycle over the last few weeks, the influx of migrants to New York remains top of mind for voters, with 84% saying it’s a serious – 57% very serious – problem for the state,” Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg remarked. “Seldom do we see an issue where at least 79% of Democrats, Republicans, independents, men, women, upstaters, downstaters, Blacks, whites, Latinos, Catholics, Jews, and Protestants all agree – that the migrant influx is a serious problem.”
The poll was conducted between Oct. 15-19, featuring participation from a total of 1,225 registered voters in the state of New York. The survey discovered that not only the majority of white residents, but those belonging to minority groups such as blacks and Latinos are on board with Mayor Eric Adams’ remarks that the immigration crisis will “destroy” the city. So who do folks believe is responsible for this mess? Their own state leaders and President Joe Biden. Again, right on the money.
“Fifty-two percent of registered voters in the state disapprove of the job Democrat New York Governor Kathy Hochul is doing regarding the crisis, while 46% feel the same way about Adams and 64% disapprove of Biden’s handling of the issue,” Whitehead said in the article.
“Voters disapprove of the job Governor Kathy Hochul is doing to address the migrant influx by 15 points, but they disapprove of the job Adams is doing on the migrant issue by 16 points and they disapprove of the Biden Administration on this issue by a whopping 35 points, including a slight plurality of Democrats,” Greenberg explained.
In the early part of October, New York was being flooded with 600 immigrants on a daily basis, which as you might imagine, places extreme stress on infrastructure and available resources. New York City has a “right to shelter” obligation in place right now, however, several officials, along with Mayor Adams, are working to try and suspend it due the high number of individuals entering the Big Apple.
“The city earlier this month limited immigrant families to 60 days in shelters, after which they would need to reapply. This move followed a similar action for single adults, who must reapply after 30 days. They have already erected large tents to house immigrants, and now city officials are discussing handing out tents to illegal immigrant arrivals to sleep in parks and other outdoor areas, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal,” Whitehead reported.
“It’s not ‘if’ people will be sleeping on the streets, it’s when,” the mayor stated on Tuesday. “We are at full capacity. We have to sort of localize it as much as possible. We have to make sure that people have some type of restroom facilities, some type of shower network.”
