According to the Daily Caller, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, a Democrat, is planning to join several Republican Governors in transporting illegal aliens to New York City, says NYC Mayor Eric Adams.
Adams’ office made the announcement on Tuesday after they said they were informed of the plans on Monday night, reports Politico. The news comes amid the ongoing Biden border crisis, which saw more than 2.3 million illegal aliens encountered in fiscal year 2022.
According to the Colorado Governor’s office, The Centennial State has been transporting aliens for several weeks in an attempt to get them to their final destinations within the United States.
NYC Mayor Eric Adams stated during a recent radio interview:
We were notified yesterday that the governor of Colorado is now stating that they are going to be sending migrants to places like New York and Chicago. This is just unfair for local governments to have to take on this national obligation.
“Polis’ reported plans follows an effort by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas, who has been busing illegal immigrants for months to New York City, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Chicago. Former Republican Gov. Doug Ducey of Arizona had also bused thousands of illegal immigrants to the nation’s capital for months,” reports the Daily Caller.
Even the Democratic Mayor of El Paso, Texas, Oscar Leeser, announced that he would follow suit and bused illegal aliens to NYC. Between all the senders mentioned above, NYC has received approximately 30,000 illegal aliens since the Spring of 2022.
Mayor Adams concluded:
No city should have to make a decision if they’re going to provide for their citizens — particularly coming out of Covid — or if they’re going to deal with an onslaught of migrants and asylum seekers.
