Last year when he was running for mayor of New York City, Eric Adams promised to maintain NYC’s “sanctuary city” status if he were elected:

You just knew this eventually would end up as one of those “how it started/how it’s going” moments, and that has happened:

Yep, it’s amazing how fast the rhetoric changes when the policies Adams supports arrive at his doorstep instead of somebody else’s:

Have you noticed that many Dem leaders see great opportunity in the crises they create (see President Biden’s “incredible transition” remark for just one example).

The Dems’ open border policies are backfiring on them but they won’t admit it, and of course now “we’re all in this together.”

Can somebody ask Adams if he still considers NYC a “sanctuary city”?

It’s called racist and inhumane when border state governors say it, but when the results of the policies they support hit home, Dems like Adams suddenly also see a problem unfolding rapidly.

“They’re not supposed to come UP HERE” is quite the self-awareness jolt for northern Democrats.

Did these Dems really think they could support letting people into the U.S. illegally at the southern border and it would remain a problem isolated to border states?

Another job well done by Democrats.
