In recent months, Democrat-run sanctuary cities have become increasingly bothered by an influx of illegal immigrants. Despite their support to house aliens and encourage their illegal entry into the country, Democrat mayors have complained that Republicans are bussing these migrants to their cities.
Recently, Mayor Adams of New York warned that this endless flood of outsiders would “destroy New York City.” His complaint earned him the title “Black Trump,” by a leftist journalist writing for MSNBC. But Adams does not appear willing to deport any of the people overrunning his city. In fact, he is doing something very anti-Trump to accommodate these aliens. And it will put actual residents at great risk.
On Saturday, city officials announced that the New York Police Department’s budget would be cut, with that money re-allocated to solving the migrant crisis…

It appears New York might be destroyed, but by Mayor Adams, not these aliens. The Democrat is issuing budget cuts to the NYPD and plans to redirect that money to fund the migrant crisis. Instead of requiring these illegal entrants to return to their countries of origin, Adams will deplete the police force of resources.
All to reward people who should not be in NYC in the first place.
New York has already suffered a crime epidemic, thanks to pro-criminal policies. The former mayor slashed the NYPD’s budget by a staggering $1 billion. Democrat DAs and the governor have eliminated cashed bail, putting criminals back on the streets.
Many residents have fled New York in recent years, prompting fears of declining tax revenue. Meanwhile, Mayor Adams allows more and more migrants to enter the city. Not once has he pressured Joe Biden or his administration to start enforcing immigration law by deporting migrants.
Instead, the mayor will be depriving police of overtime pay. This will result in fewer police committing to overtime. With a police force that is already lacking enough officers to keep the streets safe, a cutback in overtime will be devastating to the city.
New York has already run out of places to house these migrants. Reports indicate that they have trashed luxury hotels in Manhattan. Residents have protested the creation of tent cities near public schools–and have been arrested for it.
It remains unclear how New Yorkers will react to this news. It is unlikely locals will approve a cut in NYPD funding, to benefit illegals.
