New York City residents are wondering why they're left to "take the butt of everything" as illegal aliens were served Thanksgiving dinners at local food banks instead of the city's low-income residents. The migrant managed to beat the residents in getting in line, arriving before the time that was told to the city's residents.
"They was first on line for the turkeys this morning," Georgia Butler, a local resident, said. "They tell you to be there at 11 o'clock. You get there at like 10:30, 10:45, but they are already out there. The line is from over there to over here." Fox 5 reported that in one Queens neighborhood, over 8,000 migrants have flooded in and taken away the already limited resources for the low-income area. This is far from the first time that the underprivileged in the sanctuary city have gotten riled up over resources being funneled to non-Americans as the city fails to push for the migrants to go elsewhere, as previously covered by the DC Enquirer.
Calls from both city and state politicians, as well as distraught citizens, to revoke the city and state's sanctuary status have continued, growing louder as more and more migrants overwhelm the strained infrastructure, but leaders like Mayor Eric Adams (D) and Governor Kathy Hochul (D-NY) have ignored them. The problem has continued to escalate in recent months as the Big Apple has been forced to make significant budget cuts, over $4 billion over the next year and a half. The cuts include over a billion dollars in education funding, the canceling of newly hired police officers, and more. "This is the most painful exercise I've ever done in my professional life," Adams said when announcing the major change to the city's budget, explaining that it will "mean disruptions to the services you all rely on."
Instead of providing for their citizens and attempting to solve the issue head-on, these Democrat politicians continue to cast blame on other parties, such as the Biden administration or Congressional Republicans, as they continue to provide incentives for migrants to flow into their sanctuary cities and states. Back in September, Adams stated that the overwhelming migrant crisis would "destroy New York City" and that "everyone will be impacted" by the issue. Despite this claim, he has continued to make no notable moves to quell the surge of illegals into the city and instead has left its residents to fend for themselves and go without a Thanksgiving meal in the process.
