In a shocking display of hypocrisy and incompetence, New York City has resorted to setting up a “reticketing center” to deal with the overwhelming number of illegal immigrants flooding their streets. Yes, you read that right. The same city officials who preach about the importance of sanctuary policies and their commitment to welcoming migrants are now scrambling to get rid of them as fast as possible. It seems they can’t handle the consequences of their own misguided rhetoric.
NEW: Border Patrol Reveals How Many Illegal Immigrants Were Released Into the US Over the Last Year https://t.co/urfH9mf2NR

It’s no secret that New York City has become a hub for illegal immigration, with thousands of migrants pouring in over the past two years. But apparently, even the self-proclaimed progressive capital of the world has its limits. And those limits are quickly being reached. The city has busied migrants to other counties, tried to ship them to New Jersey (who wisely refused to take them), and even hauled them up to the Canadian border. Now, their latest brilliant idea is to buy migrants plane tickets out of town.
Mayor Eric Adams and his cronies have dubbed this new approach a “triage operation,” as if they’re dealing with a medical emergency. But let’s be clear, this is not a medical emergency. It’s a crisis of their own making. Instead of taking responsibility and addressing the root causes of illegal immigration, they’d rather just sweep the problem under the rug and hope it goes away. Well, it won’t go away, and the American people won’t forget their cowardly behavior.
What makes this even more outrageous is the fact that New York City’s so-called “exorbitant amount” of migrants is actually less than half the number of illegal crossings at the southern border last month alone. While the city whines about its overwhelming burden, they conveniently ignore the fact that they’re getting off easy compared to other parts of the country. It’s clear that they simply can’t handle the consequences of their own failed policies.
And let’s not forget the double standard here. When Florida Governor Ron DeSantis flew illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard and Sacramento, liberal darling Gavin Newsom likened it to “kidnapping.” Yet, when New York City does the same thing, it’s suddenly a humanitarian gesture. The hypocrisy is truly astounding.
This latest development is just another example of the Biden administration’s failure to address the border crisis. Instead of securing our borders and enforcing our immigration laws, they’ve created a system that incentivizes illegal immigration and burdens American taxpayers. It’s time for real solutions, not band-aid measures and empty rhetoric. The American people deserve better than this.
