As the immigration crisis grows here in the United States, we will undoubtedly find many previously unconvinced politicians changing their tunes altogether.
That’s because a crisis of this magnitude will only balloon further without intervention, and it is well understood that the Biden administration is either incapable or unwilling to do the job. This negligence has led to an incredible widening of the scope of the problem, forcing even Democrats in one of the bluest cities on the planet to lash out.
Robert Holden joined “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday to discuss why he opposes the immigration policies of the Biden administration and criticized Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul.
Holden said New York City Mayor Eric Adams is “trying” to come up with plans to deal with the influx, including reportedly repurposing a building in Times Square that was the former home of a 24-hour McDonald’s.
The councilman refused to hold back.
“I don’t like the governor’s approach, and I don’t like Biden’s approach. It’s wrong for the United States and certainly wrong for New York City,” said Holden.
Adams has called for help from the Biden administration as he tries to find places for the migrants to go, including to dozens of hotels throughout the city.
Holden said the migrants should “should stay in Mexico,” and noted that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office in Manhattan is “booked for the next 10 years.”
Because of this, Holden said, asylum applications cannot be processed, so migrants are unable to work. In the meantime, migrants are receiving “shelter, they’re getting food, clothing, and they’re getting cell phones,” he said.
The news comes just months after residents of Martha’s Vineyard privately expressed outrage after immigrants were shuttled to the wealthy locale by Texas lawmakers, similarly proving that the left’s outward acceptance runs only skin deep…and only when the cameras are on.
