The Concern: New York leaders’ dealing with of the rising variety of migrants coming to town.
Michael Goodwin nails it once more (“Inform Joe, already: Seal the border!” Could 24).
Mayor Adams, Gov. Hochul and most Democrats spout their loquacious drivel virtually nonstop in regards to the unlawful immigration disaster.
They scream and stomp about needing more cash, extra accommodations, extra all the pieces to take care of the scenario, however they’re solely treating the signs of this nationwide illness.
Nothing will change for the higher till somebody within the far-left Democratic Celebration summons the intestinal and political fortitude to inform President Biden three easy phrases: Shut the border.
No, there’s no migrant disaster. There’s a commonsense disaster.
Why did the liberal Democrats assume we may tackle everyone who needs to come back right here? Now they’re crying wolf.
Too unhealthy they didn’t take into consideration their open-door insurance policies earlier than this. I really feel unhealthy for the homeless, the handicapped and the poor, however I can’t take then into my residence. I’d be overrun. That’s what’s occurring.
We’re being overrun, and that is being allowed by our authorities.

Gov. Hochul has lastly weighed in on the migrant catastrophe in New York Metropolis (“Kat finds her tongue eventually,” Could 23).
Did Mayor Adams threaten her with a photograph of a 50-passenger bus with vacation spot “Albany” printed throughout the entrance?
Evidently all they mentioned was work permits and jobs for the migrants, with no point out of the basis reason for the issue: Biden’s complete erasure of our southern border.
It’s obvious that almost all of the migrants are non-professionals; some are moms with younger youngsters. So, what kinds of good-paying jobs are they anticipated to get that may allow them to help themselves and their households in a metropolis that’s, in all probability, the costliest within the nation to reside in?
It’s inevitable that the taxpayers of New York shall be footing the invoice for his or her survival, together with the schooling of the youngsters.
I discover it virtually hypocritical that so many mayors and governors of sanctuary cities and states are complaining in regards to the hundreds of migrants now flooding their cities and states.
For years, they shouted out with nice satisfaction that they welcome all to their borders. Now that individuals are truly coming, they complain about them being there.
The issue is our open border. The issue is an administration that claims our border is closed and underneath management, when, sadly, it isn’t.
The historical past of our nation relies on individuals from everywhere in the world coming to the USA legally. We welcome all legally. Not the a whole bunch of hundreds who cross the Rio Grande illegally and slip into the unknown.
Mayor Adams, you need to cease crying and blaming others and maintain enterprise because it pertains to the undocumented immigrants.
You designated New York Metropolis a sanctuary metropolis. I don’t keep in mind having a voice in that call. You don’t must roll out the welcome wagon for these individuals.
We really feel for them, however when have been any earlier immigrants handled so royally at taxpayers’ expense?
You’ve gotten buses at your disposal — use them. I’m certain when you directed a number of buses to Delaware or Washington, DC, you’d get some assist.
As an American, I’ve no drawback with immigrants. We’re a nation of immigrants.
Nevertheless, previous immigrants got here right here and offered for themselves — or their household or group did, not the general public.
These individuals, coming illegally, get money, telephones and so forth., whereas Americans who’re homeless get nothing and authorized immigrants don’t get these advantages.
Allow them to undergo the authorized course of. Our safety and security is in danger. Not simply private security, however nationwide safety.
