New York City, which is run by Democrats, plans to distribute flyers at the southern U.S. border advising migrants they shouldn’t come to the city and should instead go somewhere else.
Local officials made the announcement this week, and according to WPDE, pictures of the flyers depict a series of cautions to migrants who are pouring over the country’s border.
The blue leaflet has bullet points that state things like, “Asylum Seekers have started receiving letters asking them to move out of the shelter,” and “New York City’s (NYC) resources have become exhausted.”
Along with the warning that “you won’t be accommodated in a hotel,” the statement also states that “you would be better off going instead to a more affordable city because New York City is among the costliest cities in the world.”
The flyer also says, “New York City can’t help you get a work permit, and it will be hard for you to find work.”
NewsNation reported this week that Democrat Mayor Eric Adams recently put a limit of 30 days on the stay of adult migrants in the city’s facilities because shelters are already full.
AFP reported at the time that the mayor said in July that flyers would be handed out at the US-Mexico border to try to get refugees to go to other places.
House Republican Conference Chairperson Elise Stefanik (R-NY) stated to Breitbart News in August that Democrats like President Biden, Governor Kathy Hochul of New York, and Adams’ “radical” sanctuary policies are to blame for the state’s immigration issue.
“Sadly, every neighborhood is becoming a border community as a result of the radical Democratic Party’s policies,” and those communities are “reaping the insanity these policies have caused,” she continued.
She additionally stated that Republicans in the House “know that border security is national security.” That’s why re-establishing border security was a central part of their ‘Commitment to America’ platform, which they ran on and won in 2022.”
The WPDE story says Adams recently said that the large number of migrants could cost the city $12 billion over the next three years.
