NEW YORK – New Yorkers need not worry about their city being obliterated by the carbon induced rising waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Their Mayor, Bill deBlasio, is doing a pretty good job of that single handedly. He permitted the giant employer, Amazon, to throw up its hands in frustration and seek its mega headquarters elsewhere. He’s destroyed its elite high schools. He’s trafficking businesses out of midtown and now his previous declaration of the city being a sanctuary one for illegals might be the final nail in our coffin. President Trump is taking advantage of this situation and is threatening to transport hordes of these illegals into the Big Apple to take a bite out of guess who? The helpless people who strived so hard to make it great.
DeBlasio asked for it. Back in 2014 Big Bill welcomed these invaders into his city by signing into law a plan to hand out ID cards to residents regardless of their immigration status. “We cannot accept a city where some of our residents are forced to live fearfully in the shadows,” he claimed then. Last year he sweetened the incentive for them to flock here by offering them free health care. “Health care for all!” he declared. Add to this idiocy the NY State legislature ruling just last week to give illegals free college educations. Let’s see if we’ve got this straight: If you are not a citizen and can’t vote, you’ve broken immigration law and you may have a criminal background, you stand head and shoulders above the rest of those true and hard working citizens who may not even qualify for these benefits that you suddenly come along and grab…free of charge.
Let’s also take New Yorkers’ safety into consideration, as well, if Trump follows through with his plans to satisfy DeBlasio’s desire to “take care of” more illegals. A few years back, a report from the Immigration Reform Law Institute discovered that sanctuary cities harbor more than 10,000 illegals who hail from countries deemed “state sponsors of terrorism.” Of this group, 6,000 are Iranian nationals. U.S. intelligence officials told Congress in 2018 that Iranian “sleeper cells” live in the United States avoiding detection until they hear instructions to attack. Remember the terrorists responsible for 9/11 and how they lived among us? Thomas Homan, former acting director of ICE, noted the real threat of terrorists already in the country.
“My biggest concern isn’t how many terrorists have been arrested entering the country illegally, but how many got through. How many did Border Patrol not catch? That’s what Americans should be thinking about,” he said.
That’s where we come in…you and I…we are, and that’s what DeBlasio should be concerned with. His declaring NYC a Sanctuary City puts the bulls-eye on us for both illegals looking for a safe haven and also for President Trump seeking to dump this problem into the hands of those municipalities who dangerously welcome them in. Unfortunately for those of us who live within these communities and states, we will pay dearly for this foolishness.
