New York City Mayor Eric Adams declared a state of emergency on Friday over the arrival of thousands of migrants bused from the U.S. southern border in recent months, imploring the Biden administration for aid, as the city’s overwhelmed shelters struggle to accommodate the recent arrivals.
Adams, a Democrat, said the city’s shelters are running out of bed space, with more than 61,000 homeless New Yorkers and migrants — including 20,000 children — in its housing system. A fifth of those in shelters are migrants, he said. The city has also enrolled 5,500 recently arrived migrant children in public schools.
At the current pace, the local shelter system could find itself housing 100,000 individuals next year, Adams said. He added that the city also anticipates spending over $1 billion receiving and housing migrants by next July.
So far, New York City has converted over 40 hotels into makeshift shelters and is planning to set up a tent city on Randall’s Island, but Adams said the city won’t have the money or housing capacity to support thousands of additional migrants and at the same time, assist the domestic homeless population.
“We now have a situation where more people are arriving in New York City than we can immediately accommodate, including families with babies and young children,” Adams said. “Once the asylum seekers from today’s buses are provided shelter, we will surpass the highest number of people in recorded history in our city’s shelter system.”
Since the spring, more than 17,000 migrants, many of them asylum-seekers from Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua and other Latin American countries, have arrived in New York City on hundreds of buses that originated from the U.S.-Mexico border, according to city data.
Thousands of migrants are in New York because Texas state officials have been putting them on buses to New York City, Washington, D.C., and Chicago to protest the Biden administration’s handling of the record border apprehensions reported over the past year.
Democratic officials in El Paso have also been offering free bus rides to New York City to migrants as part of an effort to alleviate overcrowding in local shelters, due largely to a sharp increase in the number Venezuelan asylum-seekers entering western Texas.
Adams on Friday said Republican state officials who have been sending migrants to New York were exploiting the city’s welcoming values, social services and right-to-shelter laws for “political gain.”
“We have not asked for this,” he said. “There was never any agreement to take on the job of supporting thousands of asylum seekers. This responsibility was simply handed to us without warning as buses began showing up.”
Renae Eze, a spokesperson for Texas Governor Greg Abbott, a Republican, called Adams’ remarks hypocritical and countered that the mayor should be telling President Biden to implement tougher policies along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“The true emergency is on our nation’s southern border where small Texas border towns are overrun and overwhelmed by hundreds of migrants every single day as the Biden administration dumps them in their communities,” Eze said.
State data show Texas has transported more than 12,000 migrants to Democratic-controlled cities on 270 buses, including approximately 3,100 to New York City.
In his remarks on Friday, Adams urged federal and state officials to help New York City host migrants by incresing funding, resources and new legal authorities; he called the current situation “unsustainable.”
Adams also asked New York state to support the establishment of migrant relief centers. He implored Congress to pass laws that would expedite the process of allowing asylum-seekers to work in the U.S., which would allow them to find work in the city, and he wants lawmakers to overhaul the immigration system, including by legalizing undocumented immigrants already living in the U.S.
The federal government, Adams suggested, should also implement a “decompression strategy” along the U.S.-Mexico border to “slow the outflow of asylum seekers” and transport migrants to other cities “to ensure everyone is doing their part.” Asked about Adams’ demands, the Department of Homeland Security said it was “leading a comprehensive effort to support cities” that are welcoming migrants, including by having the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) expedite requests from groups and officials seeking federal reimbursement for their migrant reception work.
“We will continue to do everything we can to support cities as some Republican governors intentionally create chaos and confusion with their cruel political stunts,” the department said in a statement to CBS News.
We Are Not Fascists: A Response to Joe Biden’s ‘Soul of a Nation’ Speech in Philadelphia
My name is Royce White. I’m an American citizen, born and raised in the 32nd state of the union. I’m a Christian, I am a Black man and yes I am a MAGA Republican.
Although given the current state of politics, it may not be fair to call us Republicans at all. There are no Democrats or Republicans anymore, Only Globalists and Nationalists.
On this day I feel more concerned than ever about the future of this country. Yet for many reasons I feel equally blessed. I don’t believe I could’ve been born or lived in a more fitting time for the way God built me. All the forces of evil, all the spirit of corruption, has coalesced into a megalithic wrecking ball with spikes and an AI guidance system. This evil, this corruption infects all our institutions, starting with the church and then the academies, and our politics downstream from such moral hazard. It has left blood across the entire breadth of our society.
While such an outlook is certainly grim, it still provides the circumstance for men with sacred honor and national honor, to stand in testimony of the truth. To bear witness under one of the greatest incentives to remain silent. That incentive isn’t the barrel of a gun or the blade of a knife, but the threat of a government that doubles and triples down on lies. This is where I find myself right at home, at peace, and in my natural way. This is the greatest honor I could hope for.
The fact that the highest office of the land is entrenched in this set of lies, is just a bonus. Not only do I get to bear witness, but the stakes couldn’t get any higher.
You have betrayed the office you currently hold, you have betrayed the oath you took, you have betrayed the American people. You have betrayed America herself. You are not the President of the United States, but a traitor to the republic. Now on national television, under a beautiful night’s sky made to look especially ominous by a dramatic backdrop of red lights, you double down on this treachery and tell the American people that MAGA republicans are domestic terrorists. Artifice!
I write this with the full understanding, that given your speech last night, this letter may in fact land me in the crosshairs of the next DOJ witch-hunt. I go forward anyway because the surrendering of our right and need to speak the truth, is the very point where America ceases to be what it was designed to be. Although I find your speech last night to be dishonest in the most absolute way imaginable, and therefore completely illegitimate, I still feel a sense of obligation to go on the record and reflect a more genuine perspective from someone on our side. Our side being the side of America, not the fictitious MAGA boogeyman you portrayed us as last night.
We are not fascists. We are not terrorists or extremists. We believe in God, family and country. You and your globalist puppeteers don’t believe in God or family, so it’s easy to understand why you don’t believe in having a country.
We believe in having a country. We believe in having a nation. That does not make us fascists… In fact, it’s the exact opposite. The nation-state provides an essential identity, which legitimizes our citizenship and thus substantiates our individual rights. These rights are guaranteed by the constitution. They were not given to us by the government. They were gifted to us by the creator. Of which the constitution simply guarantees said rights, while also enshrining the creator as the soul source of them. Albeit, American freedom and God are inextricably linked.
Not that people aren’t free to not believe in God or even hate God, but the backbone of American freedom is God. Surely someone in an office such as that of President must understand that. So the christofascism claim constantly made by the liberal establishment and it’s zealots is a nonstarter. Which is expressed in many of the counter arguments for feminism, LGBTQism and racism. These grievance politics are the foundation upon which your tyrannical speech rested.
All the philosophical and legal fundamentals of America you understand well. This is exactly what you and your co-conspirators mean to undo.
What’s ironic, is using words and phrases such as “America, Freedom, Democracy or We The People,” to disguise your desires as anything other than what they truly are… Tyranny. This has always been the plan. This has always been the design — Funnel people into the “hawk-gates” with lies and misinformation, then tell them if they don’t think like the authority of The State, they are un-American. Or even worse still, because you people just can’t help yourselves, you claim that anybody who voted to have a country, is a threat to democracy. The audacity of it is quite awe inspiring.
So we’re at war with The State now… Great. I’m glad it’s out in the open so we can get on with it. Personally I don’t like the sit around and wait game that’s been play for generations. Let the record reflect that not everybody in this time who was MAGA, agreed with every single thing Donald Trump said and did, nor should we. However, we do understand that our political system has grown into a complex interplay of opposition and controlled opposition. And under such circumstances, we do our best to separate the signal from the noise. Setting our sights on the goal of retaining the sovereignty of our nation, citizenship and individual rights.
Basically what I’m saying is… you can raid Mar-a-Lago… you can create all the special commissions and committees to that you want to prosecute patriots… This isn’t about one man, who you’ve so desperately tried to turn into a scapegoat. This isn’t about one set of ideas. This movement is about the American people making the decision to have a country. Plain and simple.
Making the decision to have a nation and that nation be one nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all. One Nation! Under God! Donald Trump didn’t choose us… we chose him. We will continue to support him so long as his actions reflect those values. Your cheap tricks against Donald Trump, may work for some, but those people are not your opponent…we are.
We always knew your hatred for Donald Trump, was really a hatred harbored for We The People. Manifested most visibly when his ability to rally us against you is displayed. However imperfect that rally point may be in your corrupt eyes, it is the rally that you truly despise. Let’s not pretend that the message, coming from a more “palatable” person, would satisfy you and end your rejection of the ideas themselves. It’s the ideas that you hate, not Donald Trump.
Your attempt to manufacture a consent amongst the populous, to unconstitutionally and unjustifiably weaponize the office of president and the entire weight of United States federal government against us, is absolutely despicable. It’s exactly why the MAGA movement started in the first place. The impetus toward real tyranny and fascism is coming from you. It will backfire just as it has continued to for quite some time now. The Free People are rising. The lies are becoming more obvious with each passing day. Praise be to God!
Make America Great Again, isn’t a call to take this country backwards in race relations. This has been a focal point that you and the liberal establishment media, has consistently tried to sell the American people. As if the only thing in America’s history was racism. What a thing to teach our young people? How anti-American is that? Nobody reasonable in the MAGA movement denies the reality of racism in America’s history. We dispute what political roots that racism stemmed from and the nature of it’s existence today. But never mind that part, because the premise itself tries to draw more focus to race relations than any other issue on or under the table. As a Black man this offends me Joe. Don’t use my skin color as a way to manipulate and mislead the American people. There are other pertinent issues far greater than racism in this country. Issues that pertain to the entirety of racial demographics, as well as any and all other demographics of American citizens.
First I must qualify that the trajectory of America internationally, and our race relations here at home are two separate trajectories. Only a fool would have trouble seeing that. But our society has become foolish around many important issues. Yes there was a time when Black people were treated as less than. Yes that was a grave moral error. But it was an error that globalists had a firm hand in — If not a guiding hand. And it’s those same guiding hands that tell Blacks today, the expansion of globalism will yield different results now than it did before.
Some of us know the truth, some of remember the score. There was a brief moment when America was the center of manufacturing.When our sovereignty as a nation was underwritten and insured by our self-sufficiency. In fact, many working class Blacks helped America achieve this prosperity. What we wanted, was to be seen as Americans. What we wanted, was to judged by the content of our character. What we wanted was the full recognition of our citizenship — Not give our citizenship away. We didn’t want to surrender the blood sweat and tears of our ancestors, for Uniparty globalists to broker on the international market like pork bellies. We didn’t want to trade away the value of the very citizenship we fought to be recognized. What sense would that make? The average Black person may not see the insult or absurdity of it yet, but when they figure it out, the last thing you’ll need to be concerned about is white nationalism. That I can promise you.
The issue here is and has always been, our citizenship. The value of that citizenship and any efforts to undermine it. We’re talking about the working class, Joe. Remember us? Remember the little guy? The backbone of this country? Who underwrites the entire American experiment, that allows for you and the corrupt elite of capital hill to prance about the world with such brashness? This is about Globalism vs. Nationalism. Racism is an afterthought. And when you really think about it, I guess this inadvertently adds a lot of clarity to the historical race relations discrepancy doesn’t it? The ultimate expression of globalism was the slave trade. Open borders and free trade are in effect a slave trade of an asymmetrical nature, Joe. The enslavers of 1860 were DEMOCRATS. Today’s open border, child sex trafficking and drugs, are equally the policies of DEMOCRATS. I can see now, nothing ever changed. Slavery is slavery Joe.
How stupid do you think we are? With your globalism comes the drug trade. Which is a public/private partnership, and always has been. Opium, Marijuana, Heroin, Cocaine, Crack, Opiates, Fentanyl, Psychotropic, etc. And last but not least, ol faithful, the expansionist military industrial complex. All of which seem to be the new platform of the Democrat party. Unconstraint labor pours across open borders. Unlimited drugs from China, Mexico or Big Pharma and proxy wars in Eastern Europe or the Middle East. These are classic Democrat, or should I say UNIPARTY… or should I say Globalist… politics.
We have been sold out by you political and corporate elites. In a way that has a jackboot firmly on the neck of all working class Americans of every race and otherwise. Not just today either, a jackboot consciously placed on the neck of American citizens in perpetuity. You want us to be serfs. You want us to surrender to a nationless world where the consolidation of power becomes amplified. Unbound by the scope of our constitution. Where our citizenship no longer has any connection to it’s roots of American freedom. Providing no protection from the sycophantic pipe dreams of egalitarian jerk-offs in Europe and beyond.
We see the game, we know the play. We will not renounce our citizenship. We will not renounce America. We will not renounce God. We will stand in testimony of the truth and bear witness. The war you just declared in that speech was not against extremists or white nationalists, or MAGA, or Donald Trump, but against countrymen who believe in their country. American patriots, Christian warriors, who like the spartans of Greece, don’t want to become a tributary state to the God-King Xerxes or the Persian empire. We will not become a tributary State to China, The CCP and by way of Davos. Or the technocratic, great reset, build back better, anti-God, transhumanism it prescribes.
Beyond the political implications of borders and the nation state. Beyond the value of our citizenship or the importance of our American heritage and ideals… Spiritually, the nation state and borders provide a physical constraint or limitation on man’s ambition to rule theworld. It is one of man’s few inventions that has huge spiritual benefit with proper leadership and statesmanship. It at least checks the arrogant desire to conquer the world — as if in doing so we could become God. There is only one true God. We also see with clear eyes, that this declaration of war is really against His kingdom and it’s righteousness. MAGA is just a slogan you’re using as cover to say anyone with faith, in this country or in God, is now considered by The State to be a fascist. The Post World War II Liberal Order, has relentlessly used Adolph Hitler and Nazi Germany, as a cornerstone scare tactic to promote Globalism.
As if the Nation State is by default an inevitable conduit of tyranny. But who now stands before the American people with two marines, and declares certain people as others or enemies of The State, in the name of a political agenda? Artifice!
Oh Joe, what have you done? Bring it on Tyrant.
Royce Alexander White Future President of The United States
P.S. When you say the “Mainstream Republicans” are people you’ve worked with many times… We believe you. That’s the UNIPARTY you’re referring to. The MAGA movement has rightly identified this alliance as the ultimate purveyors of a corrupt status quo. Centrists! When you say “Mainstream Republicans”, you mean the controlled opposition that always seems to bend the knee eventually. The “Mainstream Republicans,” are Democrats. Wait until the masses of working class Hispanics and Blacks realize that the Republican Party has two options, one of them wasn’t behind the war on drugs, the war on terror and now the war on our currency.
The king wanted to go fishing, and he asked the royal weather forecaster the forecast for the next few hours. The palace meteorologist assured him that there was no chance of rain. So the king and the queen went fishing. On the way, he met a man with a fishing pole riding on a donkey, and he asked the man if the fish were biting. The fisherman said, “Your Majesty, you should return to the palace. In just a short time I expect a huge rainstorm.” The king replied: “I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an educated and experienced professional. Besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him.” So, the king continued on his way. However, in a short time, torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked. Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to execute the meteorologist. Then he summoned the fisherman and offered him the prestigious position of royal forecaster. The fisherman said, “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey’s ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain.” So, the king hired the donkey. And so began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in influential positions of government. And thus, the symbol of the Democrat Party was born. The practice continues to this day. Unknown author
In the spring of 2001, my sixth-grade class at Cedarvale Community School took part in a special Canadian government program intended to preserve “Canadian heritage” by interviewing older people and recording their thoughts. My classmates and I visited a home for the elderly where we asked residents a series of questions and dutifully wrote down their responses. Though I doubt the historical utility of our crude reports, they were deemed sufficient to meet the criteria of the government program. For our efforts, my class was paid the princely sum of about $300. My teacher, Ms. Botham, who contin¬uously infused the curriculum with her anticapitalist perspective, asked our class to decide collectively where we would like to donate the money. An impassioned debate ensued. One girl proposed we donate to an ani¬mal shelter to save puppies. Another sug¬gested a food bank. One boy recommended a religious charity where he occasionally volunteered. Agreement seemed distant. Then I had an idea. With an oversized 1990s calculator I determined that if we divided the proceeds equally among our¬selves, we would each receive about $12. Ever the respectful and obedient student, I raised my hand to speak in the ongoing donation debate, waited my turn, and then shared what I thought was a real break¬through: “We don’t need to debate any longer!” I explained, immensely satisfied with my ingenuity and creative problem solving. “We can divide the money, and each can decide for himself what to do with his share,” I reasoned. Unfortunately, my proposal never stood a chance. Before it could be considered on its merits by my classmates, Ms. Botham interjected. I still remember her anger and indignation. “Absolutely not,” she roared. “How selfish!” (So much for democratic decision making.) Embarrassed, I countered that dividing the money did not imply that the funds would not be donated to charity, only that the funds could be donated by each to a cause according to his own conscience. Ms. Botham ignored my retort—and probably sensed that it was disingenuous. Indeed it was. I didn’t think we should have to donate our share if we didn’t want to. I thought that if we worked for those funds, then we had earned them, and we should be free to use them as we pleased. There was no reason the choice should be collective. Most students in my class came from very affluent families, sported the trendiest win¬ter jackets, the brightest gel pens, and the most buzzworthy lunchtime snacks (remem¬ber Spice Girls lollipops?), but others were from the “wrong side of the tracks” and seldom enjoyed these little luxuries. Why shouldn’t they use the funds they earned to indulge in a gel pen, or a lollipop, or whatever else their eleven-year-old hearts desired? Even socialist “logic” could have supported dividing the money in the name of increasing such opportunities for the poorer students among us. Besides, Ms. Botham made much more money than we did, and we didn’t vote on the allocation of her salary. We didn’t mandate that she donate all (or even a por¬tion) of her money to charity. In fact, my elementary school education was regularly interrupted by teachers’ strikes. It was a little rich for a teacher (rightly or wrongly) to demand higher wages for herself and then deny us a paltry sum that could have made a meaningful difference in our lives. I still remember, clearly, how Ms. Botham couldn’t wait to share her disdain for my individualist proposal. A couple of hours after Ms. Botham embarrassed me for raising the prospect that my classmates and I be paid individually for our work, the other sixth-grade teacher, Ms. Levitt, dropped in. Ms. Levitt and Ms. Botham were friends, and these visits were common. “Can you believe,” Ms. Botham asked loudly, so everyone could hear, “that Julian actually divided it up to see how much he would get?” Then both teachers cackled about how selfish I was. Not only did Ms. Botham rush to embar¬rass a student—not only did she respond with an argument from intimidation instead of reason—not only did she miss an oppor¬tunity to “help the poor” among her own students—she also missed an opportunity to teach us the value of work. Those eleven- and twelve-year-old students in my sixth-grade class are today part of the much-troubled millennial gen¬eration—a generation that is substantially confused about the relationship between effort and reward. Most of my generation, myself included, barely worked until late in our high-school careers, if then. I wonder how much better off my classmates might be today if, at that tender age, they were taught about earning money and spending it according to their own values—rather than about making sacrifices in the name of “virtue.”
A Civil War is going on in the USA. For years, it was going on, but burst into full-scale war on January 6, 2021, when the Globalist sealed their Election Victory.
This war has two irreconcilable philosophies. The “Globalists” – The upcoming government, with Joe Biden as the president, the Democrat Party, and a significant part of the Republican Party. The “America First” – President Donald Trump’s supporters and a part of the Republican Party
The “Globalists,” which from now on I will call “America Last,” won a significant battle, the 2020 election. There is no fraud, fair, or cheating in a war only a loser and a winner. In this battle, “America Last” is the winner and “America First” is the loser.
Following its great success, “America Last” went into a full-scale war for which “America First” was unprepared. This war does not use guns, but a much more powerful weapon, control of communication and information, “America Last” has won in Weaponizing the Internet.
With their allies, the “Big Tech” such as Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Apple, “America Last” managed to destroy “America First” channels of communications. Again, it makes no difference if it is right, wrong, legal or not. It is a war; the final winner will decide what was correct and lawful.
“America First” did not see it coming.
“America Last” is celebrating their victories, and “America First” is licking their wounds and trying to re-group.
I belong to “America First.” I believe that this full-scale war only started, and “America Last” is making a huge mistake by underestimating the resilience and dedication of “America First.”

Dear Ms. Pelosi:
I write to you out of utter disdain! You are as despicable and un-American as the traitor Jane Fonda.
I am a soon to be 65 year-old who has voted in every state and local election since 1966. I have voted for both Republicans and Democrats alike. I have worked on campaigns for both Republicans and Democrats, white and black. I served the country that I love in Vietnam , as my son did in the Middle East . I was awarded two bronze stars. I have been involved in politics since age 6 when my father was campaign manager for a truly great American Congressman, Charles Raper Jonas, who worked for his constituents and his country, and was to be admired, unlike you.
You obviously haven’t read the Constitution recently, if ever, the Federalist Papers, or even David McCulloughs book on John Adams. You ought to take the time while riding around in your government provided luxury executive jet to do just that. You represent Socialistic and even Marxist principals that our founding fathers tried to avoid when setting out the capitalistic republican form of government represented by our Constitution.
I find it interesting that you and your husband are multi-millionaires with much of your fortune being made as a result of your public service. You have controlled legislation that has enhanced your husband’s investments both on and off shore. At the same time you redistributed the wealth of others. Our system of a free market economy is being destroyed by the likes of you. You ride around in a Gulfstream airplane at the tax payers expense while criticizing the presidents of companies who produced something for the economy. You add nothing to the economy of the United States ; you only subtract therefrom.
I would like to suggest that you return to the city of fruitcakes and nuts and eat your husband’s canned tuna and pineapple produced by illegal immigrants and by workers who have been excluded from the protection that 90% of the legal workers in the United States have.
I await your defeat in the next election with glee…
Don’t ever use the term un-American again for protesters who love this country and are exercising their rights upon which this country was founded. By the way, while I served in the Army, I was spit on by the same type of lunatics who support you and who you probably supported in the 60s and 70s. You are an embarrassment to all of us who served so that you would have the protected right of free speech to call us un-American. But at the same time, I have the right to write you to notify you that I consider you to be un-American, as do the majority of the people of this formerly great country. You are a true disgrace to most of the people who served this country by offering themselves for public service in the United States Congress.
I feel certain your aides will not share this letter with you, but I intend to share it with many.
