Chuck Schumer, Hakeem Jeffries’ NYC migrant silence is deadly

With Mayor Eric Adams warning that the migrant disaster “will destroy New York Metropolis,” we once more must ask: The place is Senate Majority Chief Chuck Schumer?  

Or, for that matter, Home Minority Chief Hakeem Jeffries?

Heck, what about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand?

The mayor is overtly livid with President Joe Biden; Gov. Kathy Hochul couldn’t even get face time with the Massive Man when she went to DC to ask for assist.

And all Washington’s despatched Gotham (or the state) is a drop-in-the-bucket FEMA handout plus nasty kibbitzing from Homeland Safety chief Alejandro Mayorkas about how we’re doing all of it incorrect. 

Greater than 110,000 migrants have arrived within the metropolis up to now yr; it’s shouldering nearly fully by itself the price of housing, feeding and educating them.

The fiscal pressure will attain some $12 billion by the tip of fiscal 2025, assuming inflows degree off — which they received’t if Biden and Mayorkas are nonetheless operating the present: Open borders are their coverage, and all they provide relating to slowing the tide is extra lies.  

Don’t Brooklyn boys Jeffries and Schumer care about what occurs to their city? 

Or the pursuits of the voters who ship them to DC over and over and over? 

Biden is the creator of this disaster.

Since Day 1 of his administration, he’s pursued an erase-the-border coverage. 

And its ugly outcomes are seen from El Paso to Chicago to our personal Randall’s Island: overburdened social companies and Americans denied entry to sources their tax {dollars} paid for. 

Schumer and Jeffries are positioned like no different New York electeds to take the struggle to Biden on this; Schumer’s an elder statesman, the victor in numerous legislative knife fights, and Jeffries is a proficient up-and-comer and a possible future Home speaker.

(Gillibrand, in the meantime, can’t even plead management duties as an excuse for being AWOL.)

Exhausting, public questions from them — like how far more is the Massive Apple alleged to take? and what’s the plan to tamp down inflows? — would carry actual weight.

However they’re going together with the president and the Twitter cadres that set coverage course for nationwide Democrats. 

It’s pure political cowardice. 

One thing sadly par for the course from nationwide Democrats on immigration.

However on this case it’s inflicting a humanitarian catastrophe. 

Schumer and Jeffries ought to be ashamed; Gillibrand, too.

And voters shouldn’t allow them to neglect their large failure.
