Democrats are facing the consequences of their open borders agenda, and it’s getting ugly.
Their cities are being overrun, and their constituents are furious at them.
One New York Democrat tried to lie his way out of it, but now he’s in even bigger trouble.
Eric Adams ran for mayor in New York City as a moderate Democrat who was pro-police and was going to try to get crime under control in the city.
It was all a lie. As mayor, he has governed as a far-left progressive just like his predecessor, Bill de Blasio, and the city is suffering for his ruinous policies.
He is refusing to do anything about crime, and he will not stop illegal immigration in his city. And New York City is now a shell of the great American city that it once was.
Of course, being a politician, Adams is trying to escape the blame for any of the consequences of his bad policies. He is willing to lie or slander anyone in order to save himself.
But one lie that he told in order to pass off blame for this immigration crisis got quickly smacked down.
According to the New York Post, “Mayor Eric Adams on Monday played the race card against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, claiming the GOP pol has been busing thousands of migrants to the Big Apple and elsewhere to ‘hurt Black-run cities.’
“Adams made the explosive claim in a seething statement – even though a Texas Democratic mayor of Mexican descent has shipped more than twice the number of migrants both to New York City and Chicago.”
This is what Adams had to say: “Not only is this behavior morally bankrupt and devoid of any concern for the well-being of asylum seekers, but it is also impossible to ignore the fact that Abbott is now targeting five cities run by Black mayors. Put plainly, Abbott is using this crisis to hurt Black-run cities.”
It’s a patently absurd statement by Adams. New York City and Chicago are the two biggest cities in America. The fact that they are run by black mayors is purely incidental.
Governors like Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott are happy to send illegal immigrants to Democrat communities run by white people too. For example, DeSantis famously sent a plane of illegals to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts which is heavily white.
Adams got excoriated for his ridiculous statement.
Karen Townsend of HotAir.com had this to say: “Adams is making criticisms without knowing the facts. Shocker, I know.” She then went on to say, “Funny how Adams only calls the Republican a racist.”
Adams is trying to cynically use racial divisions to escape responsibility for his ridiculous and harmful policies.
He thinks if he plays the race card then his constituents will ignore the fact that he is materially hurting their day-to-day lives with his awful immigration policies.
Eric Adams knows that the race card is the only card he has left to play to keep himself in office. Once his constituents figure out the truth, he is done.
