It’s funny how the “progressives” that run most of the major cities in the U.S. advocate for practically unfettered illegal immigration, but when it hits their doorsteps and impacts their towns in a very real way, all of a sudden they pump the brakes.

During a Tuesday press conference, New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) said that because of the financial and institutional pressures put on the city’s social services, the steady stream of illegal immigrants pouring into NYC has become a “real burden on New Yorkers,” calling on President Joe Biden's regime to help out.

“We’re reaching out to the federal government and stating this is a real burden on New Yorkers as we’re trying to do the right thing,” Adams said, attempting to play both sides of the politically correct game. “We already, as I stated, we already have an overburdened shelter system. So now we’re talking about, as you stated, food, clothing, school. This is going to impact our schools, because we do not turn away individuals because they’re undocumented.”

Who would’ve thought allowing unmanaged and unlimited illegal immigration into already overpopulated cities would cause strife for the people who legally have a right to belong in those places?

Of course, outlets like Politico are playing defense for Adams, who doesn't place the blame on the Biden regime or practically any other leftist politician that contributed to border crisis now impacting his city.

Adams said the asylum seekers are arriving from Latin America and other regions, and in some instances, being sent in on buses by the federal government and the state governments of Texas and Arizona.

“In order to both meet the legal mandate as a right-to-shelter city and provide high-quality shelter and services for those who enter our system, New York City needs additional federal resources immediately,” Adams said in a statement on Tuesday.

The left sure likes to talk a big game and place the “burden” on others. But when that same “burden” begins directly affecting them and the job they’re supposed to be doing — you know, serving the legal citizens of the area — their tune changes, sometimes sounding like a completely different genre of figurative music.
