Cuomo Takes Aim at Feds Over Migrant Crisis in NYC

( – New York’s disgraced Democrat former governor has blasted the federal government over its catastrophic handling of the illegal immigration crisis. Andrew Cuomo, who resigned in August 2021 after being accused of sexual harassment, says the tide of migrants now flooding New York is a huge mistake by the administration. The state is being forced to spend billions looking after migrants, despite multiple other problems Cuomo mentioned.

On March 9, Cuomo spoke at the Bronx’s Union Grove Missionary Baptist Church, discussing the current situation in the state he governed from 2011 to 2021. He highlighted the growing issue of homelessness, as well as crime and the alarming state of the subway system, then added, “On top of it all, we now have a migrant problem.” He reminded his audience that he’s spent a lifetime in politics, and told them the migrant crisis is “the worst government blunder I have seen in my entire life.”

Cuomo blamed the crisis squarely on the federal government, saying the administration is “standing at the border with a sign” inviting migrants to come here. Then, he said, once migrants get into the country they’re going to choose to go to New York — and when they reach the state, they end up in New York City. According to Cuomo, that’s because the state government wants to confine the political problem to one part of the state, but then the city is forced to take care of more than 100,000 migrants who have arrived there.

In fact, NYC mayor Eric Adams (D) is trying to scrap the city’s controversial pro-migrant “sanctuary” laws while Cuomo’s replacement, Governor Kathy Hochul (D), has allocated over $2 billion to help look after illegals. The immigration crisis is one of the Biden administration’s worst failures; even now, as it’s tearing his own party apart, the president seems unwilling to do anything about it.
