Village Idiot Adams: Sanctuary Kills NYC
- NYC Mayor Eric Adams says the quiet part aloud.
- Sanctuary will kill New York City, according to the mayor.
- NYC currently imports 10,000 immigrants per month.
It’s a beautiful, sunny day here in Asti.
Yesterday, my friend and colleague Byron King not only sent me the article we ran in yesterday’s Rude but sat with me for an hour to record a fun interview about the state of the world. In fact, we visited five continents while we chatted!
I can’t wait until that interview gets through post-production so you can watch it. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s ready.
Today, I just drank my coffee at Fabrizio’s and even helped an old lady carry her bags to her car. Oh, happy days.
And since I’ve built up a modicum of spiritual capital with The Man Upstairs, I feel I can let loose on mere earthbound mortals like Eric Adams.
Adams, the mayor of New York City, has a brain as smooth as his bald pate.
Adams virtue-signaled to all Americans when he boldly claimed NYC was a “sanctuary city,” only for New York State Governor Kathy Hochul to back him up and proclaim New York state a “sanctuary state.”
I’m sure all those upstate farmers were pleased as punch!
Now, the butcher’s bill has come due. And Adams doesn’t want to pay it.
Let’s have some fun at Adams’ expense in this Rude.
What Did Adams Say?
Here’s a great juxtaposition of what Adams initially said about being a sanctuary city and what he said on Wednesday:
In the top video, from only one year ago, the ABC correspondent asked Adams this:
You pledged during your campaign to keep New York City a sanctuary city. Do you have any concern that that policy is attracting more people to the border?
No. Not at all. This city has always been a sanctuary city, and we’ve always managed those who wanted to come to New York City to pursue The American Dream.
In the bottom video, here’s what Adams said Wednesday about NYC being a sanctuary city (bolds mine):
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. I don't see an ending to this. This issue will destroy New York City. Destroy New York City.
We're getting 10,000 migrants a month. One time we were just getting Venezuela. Next time we were getting Ecuador. Now we’re getting Russian speaking coming through Mexico. Now we’re getting western Africa.
Now we're getting people from all over the globe who have made their minds up that they're going to come through the southern part of the border and come into New York City.
And everyone is saying it’s New York City’s problem. Every community in this city is going to be impacted. We have a $12 billion deficit that we’re going to have to cut — every service in this city is going to be impacted. All of us.
And I say this to you as I turn it over to you. These are some of the most educated, some of the most knowledgeable, some of my commissioners and deputy commissioners and chiefs live in this community.
So, as you ask me a question about migrants, tell me what role you played. How many of you organized to stop what they’re doing to us? How many of you were part of the movement to say, “We see what this mayor is trying to do… and then try to destroy New York City.”
It’s going to come to your neighborhoods. All of us are going to be impacted by this. I said it last year when we had 15,000. I’m telling you now with 110,000.
The city we knew, we’re about to lose. And we’re all in this together. All of us. Staten Island is saying, “Send them out to Manhattan.” Manhattan is saying, “Send them out to Queens.” Queens is saying, “Send them out to Brooklyn.” No. It’s not a game we could play.”
This is delicious.
What’s the Cost?
I won’t say something as vacuous as, “I like Mexican food, so Mexicans are okay with me.”
Yes, I like Mexican food. And Mexico is severely underrated as a country. Its people are just fine.
But they - per se - aren’t the problem.
The problem is when you open up your border, you have no border. It’s just a fact of geopolitics.
And the type of people who have to cross a border on foot tend to be those who can’t afford plane tickets or visa fees.
So you wind up with less educated, manual workers. America already has plenty of those, so its new arrivals crowd out those already here.
What Did the Rude Say Before?
If all the property on the southern border was privately owned, do you think those landowners would just let strangers trespass on their property?
Of course not.
Then why has it been acceptable - even lauded - to allow both Mexicans and non-Mexicans to cross the border with impunity? And after that, allow those trespassers to dip their hands in the communal treasury?
Because no one owns the land? Because the treasury is now the property of the U.S. Government and not The People?
What magical powers have been conferred on this government to make [the answer to that question] The Government? And who granted those powers?
Like everything else, they usurped that power.
When you think about it that way, it's preposterous to assume governments anywhere should - and do - carry out that duty [of protecting the land and treasury].
Did Angela Merkel do so in 2015?
What's troubling is that the EU knew Syrians weren't the only ones crossing the Turkish border into Europe.
Of the 1.3 million refugees who flooded into Europe in 2015, only 378,000 (29%) were Syrian.
The US is experiencing the same disaster now from Mexico.
Check out this graphic from a few years ago :
If this was happening during the Trump Administration, how many non-Mexicans do you reckon are flooding through the southern border today?
To be sure, Mexicans are the majority group. But traffickers know what they're doing, and would-be migrants spot the opportunity.
Why wouldn't would-be terrorists head that way? Much better than a background check before getting on a plane, isn't it?
Now, let’s look at Pew’s updated numbers, as of November 2022:

“Other countries” comprise the vast majority of those crossing the Southern Border. It’s not the Mexicans anymore. They aren’t the big issue.
Remember, Adams said he was getting Russian speakers across the border. Do you think those are proper migrants or spies?
Both? Maybe. But why take the chance?
Eric Adams has a $12 billion deficit he’s got to cut at a time when he’s welcoming - my word, not his - 10,000 migrants per month into his “sanctuary city.”
Virtue-signaling, meet Karma.
Not to worry, though.
House Speaker and Chief RINO Cuck Kevin McCarthy said, “Mayor Adams is right. New York City deserves better.”
The Man with the Most Punchable Face in Politics, Mike Pence, said he wanted to give a “hat tip to the mayor of New York, who’s been willing to call out President Joe Biden and his administration for their absolute failure to secure the southern border.”
With Republicans like this, who needs Democrats?
Have a wonderful weekend!
