Democrat Gov. J.B. Pritzker Activates National Guard Over 0.01% of Biden’s Border Crisis Arriving in Illinois

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) is activating the National Guard over 0.01 percent of President Joe Biden’s record-breaking illegal immigration crisis arriving in the sanctuary state via migrant buses sent by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R).

For more than two weeks, Abbott has sent about 500 border crossers and illegal aliens to Chicago, Illinois, which prides itself on being a sanctuary jurisdiction for illegal aliens.

The 500 arrivals account for just 0.01 percent of the estimated five million border crossers and illegal aliens who have crossed the southern border since Biden took office.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) has called the migrant buses from Texas “immoral” and “unpatriotic” as well as “racist and xenophobic.” Those statements come as Lightfoot has relocated many of the arriving border crossers and illegal aliens to the suburbs of Chicago.

Now, Pritzker has called up 75 members of the Illinois National Guard to aid arriving border crossers and illegal aliens. The sanctuary state is expecting 1,000 border crossers and illegal aliens on buses from Texas every week for the next 15 weeks.

“I’m not going to mince words here, the governor of Texas is forcing on New York and [Washington] D.C. and Chicago and potentially other places, a needlessly last minute and complex process, that is a heartless display of politics over people,” Pritzker said in a press conference this week.

Lightfoot, last week, called on Biden to “step up” with “federal support” to aid the sanctuary jurisdiction with the migrant buses.

The migrant buses sent to Chicago are a fraction of what American border communities are forced to sustain with about 6,000 illegal aliens crossings every day.

Recently, in the Del Rio Sector of the Texas-Mexico border, Border Patrol agents apprehended nearly 13,000 border crossers and illegal aliens — averaging almost 1,900 apprehensions a day in the area — which is about a third of Del Rio’s total population.

Border Crossers Awarded Healthcare, Free Cellphones Upon Arrival in NYC

Border Crossers Awarded Healthcare, Free Cellphones Upon Arrival in NYC

Border crossers arriving in New York City on migrant buses sent from Texas by Gov. Greg Abbott (R) are being awarded healthcare services as well as free cellphones, among other things.

On Sunday, as the New York Post reports, the city’s hospital system held an event for arriving border crossers at a hospital in the Bronx where they were offered healthcare services along with free cellphones, food, library cards, and school supplies.

The event comes as Mayor Eric Adams (D) estimates that, in the last few weeks, Abbott has bused more than 4,000 border crossers to New York City as part of his plan to alleviate waves of illegal immigration to Texas by transporting new arrivals to sanctuary cities run by Democrats.

In addition to free goodies from the city, thousands of border crossers are expected to be housed in luxury hotel rooms across Manhattan.

Last week, Breitbart News reported that New York City officials are planning to house border crossers arriving on migrant buses in about 6,000 hotel rooms. That plan comes as rents for New Yorkers have skyrocketed.

Likewise, New York City Cardinal Timothy Dolan said Catholic Charities is working to enroll young border crossers in high-priced Catholic schools.

Illegal immigration poses massive costs to American taxpayers, annually. Every year, taxpayers are billed more than $143 billion to subsidize the cost of the nation’s 11 to 22 million illegal aliens.

NYC to Give 6K Luxury Hotel Rooms to Border Crossers as Rents Skyrocket for Americans

NYC to Give 6K Luxury Hotel Rooms to Border Crossers as Rents Skyrocket for Americans

New York City officials are hoping to provide a total of nearly 6,000 luxury hotel rooms to border crossers arriving on buses from Texas even as rents for city residents skyrocket to unsustainable prices.

For weeks, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) has sent buses filled with border crossers to New York City — a rigorous sanctuary city that shields and protects illegal aliens from arrest and deportation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

Mayor Eric Adams (D), a supporter of the city’s sanctuary policy, has called on New Yorkers to get “on board” with waves of illegal immigration sent to New York City while also calling the migrant buses “horrific” and suggesting he will retaliate against Abbott.

Adams, according to the New York Post, is planning a housing initiative that would provide nearly 6,000 luxury hotel rooms to border crossers arriving on the buses.

The Post reports:

There is no price tag attached to the request that was released Wednesday, which was made under the emergency contracting powers invoked by Mayor Eric Adams when the migrant crisis first began in the city. [Emphasis added]

The Department of Homeless Services had previously asked nonprofit social service providers to send in proposals to rent rooms and provide aid for 600 families set to be housed in a luxury Midtown hotel, the Row NYC on 8th Avenue. [Emphasis added]

And it would come on top of the estimated 200 already secured and providing housing for families at the Skyline Hotel on 10th Avenue. [Emphasis added]

The housing plan for border crossers comes as rents for New York City residents have skyrocketed to levels that are pushing working and middle class communities further out of the area.

A recent analysis from Street Easy revealed that about 34 percent of apartments listed in New York City today opened only after tenants were forced out as a result of massive rent increases.

In June, rents across New York City hit an average of $3,500 a month. By borough, the average rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan is now $4,100, the average rent in Brooklyn is now well over $3,000 a month, and the average rent in Queens is now around $2,500 a month.

Real estate investors are some of the biggest beneficiaries of mass immigration to the United States. Immigration-driven population growth, set to bring the U.S. population to more than 400 million residents by 2060, is likely to send housing prices even higher.

A 2017 study, published in the Journal of Housing Economics, found that “increases in immigration into a metropolitan statistical area are linked with rising rents and home prices in that metropolitan statistical area and neighboring metropolitan statistical areas.”

Today, annually, the U.S. imports more than a million legal immigrants on green cards and another 1.5 million foreign workers on temporary work visas to take American jobs. In addition, millions of illegal aliens are added to the population every few years.

New York Democrat Eric Adams: Get ‘On Board’ with Illegal Immigration ‘Influx’ in Schools, Hospitals, Neighborhoods

New York Democrat Eric Adams: Get ‘On Board’ with Illegal Immigration ‘Influx’ in Schools, Hospitals, Neighborhoods

New York City, New York, Mayor Eric Adams (D) says New Yorkers must be “on board” with having their schools, hospitals, and neighborhoods burdened by an “influx” of illegal immigration to the region as a result of President Joe Biden’s policies.

During a press conference this week, Adams warned the city’s nearly 8.4 million residents — who remain some of the most tax-burdened people in the United States — to be prepared to have their schools, hospitals, roads, and neighborhoods inundated with border crossers and illegal aliens who are arriving by the tens of thousands every month.

“Number one, this is an opportunity for New Yorkers to move away from ‘Not In My Backyard.’ We all must share the crisis,” Adams said. “Our approach has been to divide up the homeless issue even prior to the asylum seekers by councilmanic districts.”

“Now with this influx of people seeking asylum and support, now we have to go beyond that,” Adams continued. “We’re looking at the potential for emergency shelters in hotels and other facilities … if there was ever an all-hands-on-deck moment, this is it … our system was inundated with those who were seeking shelter because of the callousness of those other states that were pushing them out.”

Adams warned that “everyone’s” neighborhood in New York City will be burdened by the waves of border crossers and illegal aliens being released every day into the U.S. interior. New Yorkers, Adams said, must accept that reality:

We’re here, we’re receiving them and everyone is going to have to be on board. And we can’t have the historical “I believe people should be housed but just don’t house them on my block.” Everyone’s block is going to be impacted by this. And so we have to add our advocacy with our ability to help our neighbors. We need everyone on board with this. [Emphasis added]

As I said last week, our schools are going to be impacted, our healthcare system is going to be impacted, our infrastructure is going to be impacted … we’re going to need all New Yorkers to be with us on this. [Emphasis added]

Already, New Yorkers must deal with the nation’s highest population densities for a major American city. The city houses nearly 30,000 residents per square mile. The density has translated to a lack of public resources for residents.

Just last year, parents in New York City protested as their public schools became overcrowded with class sizes exceeding 30 schoolchildren per teacher.

At the same time, the city’s “sanctuary city” policy that shields illegal aliens from arrest and deportation, along with other incentives for jobs, lax immigration enforcement, and one of the highest illegal alien populations, has helped skyrocket rents for New Yorkers as more competition in the housing market drives up costs.

The New York Times reported in May:

In New York City, roughly one-third of renters are “severely rent-burdened,” meaning they spend more than 50 percent of their income on rent, according to a survey of the city’s housing stock issued last week. [Emphasis added]

The city’s affordability crisis has been underscored more than once in recent weeks. A report released this month by the brokerage firm Douglas Elliman showed that rents in some parts of the city are continuing to surge: In Manhattan, for example, the median effective rent in April 2022 was $3,870, more than 38 percent higher than a year before and the highest level ever recorded. [Emphasis added]

The survey of the city’s housing stock underscored a longstanding trend of dwindling affordability: Between 2017 and 2021, New York City lost almost 100,000 units that had rented for less than $1,500 per month, while it added 107,000 units that rent for at least $2,300 per month. [Emphasis added]

Research conducted at the University of Pennsylvania found that “an immigration inflow equal to 1 percent of a city’s population is associated with increases in average rents and housing values of about 1 percent,” which would equate to a massive cost burden for New Yorkers as immigrants make up more than 37 percent of the city’s population.

From February 2021 to May 2022, alone, Biden has released over a million border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. interior. This is about twice the population of Wyoming and larger than the population of Austin, Texas.

Likewise, since Biden took office, his Department of Homeland Security (DHS) estimates that nearly 820,000 illegal aliens have successfully crossed into the U.S. via the southern border, undetected by Border Patrol agents.
