We’ve seen a lot of bad stories about when it comes to the failure of the Biden team to deal with the influx of illegal aliens. But this new story out of New York has to be right up there in showing what the Democratic priorities truly are.
You know how bad it’s been getting there when even the Democratic Mayor Eric Adams blasted Joe Biden over the issue. Of course, what they are feeling in New York City isn’t even close to the problem that the cities on the border have been having. But now that it’s affecting them, suddenly, New York Democrats are feeling it. As we reported, Biden blew off Adams when he was in NYC recently, not even bothering to meet with him. That shows just how seriously Biden takes the problem, a figurative “drop dead” to NYC.
But the way they have been dealing with it in New York City hasn’t been good.
Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) held a press conference to call out how NYC was dealing with the crisis on Monday. A 95-year-old Korean War veteran was there, and Malliotakis detailed the horrible story of how he and other nursing home residents had just been booted out of their facility when their facility was sold to become a shelter for illegal aliens.

“The thing I’m annoyed about is how they did it, it was very disgraceful what they did to the people in Island Shores,” Tammaro said, referencing the assisted living facility he was in.
“Then one day there was a notice on the board. I think that gave us a month and a half to find out where we were going to go,” he said. “I thought my suitcases were going to be on the curb because I’m not that fast.”
If it wasn’t for his daughter, he said, “They would’ve been on the curb.”
“That was it. I said, ‘No, no, no, no, you’re not moving me,’ and they said, ‘Yes, yes, yes we are.’ Everything was done behind closed doors – we didn’t have a chance to actually make any attempt to stop them because there wasn’t enough time.”
Malliotakis said this showed “our country and our city’s priorities are backwards.”
“My blood pressure went through the roof when I found out Homes for the Homeless cut a deal with the City of New York to turn Island Shores into a migrant shelter,” the GOP lawmaker said.
“Our tax dollars as citizens of New York should not be utilized to house citizens of other countries, especially at the expense of our senior citizens and veterans who put their lives on the line, paid taxes their whole lives and built our communities.”
Many blasted the action on X, saying it showed that they didn’t place American citizens first and that it was particularly egregious when it affected the most vulnerable and the ones who honorably served this country, like Tammaro.
