For months, New York has been on the receiving end of the game, as the Republican governors of Texas and Florida aggressively bus migrants to New York and other big, blue cities. Now, with his city busting at the seams with hordes of varied Third Worlders, Adams has decided he's all-in, and New York City is now aggressively offering migrants one-way plane tickets to anywhere else in the world but there.
Given the leftist uproar and accusations of racism leveled at Governors Abbott and DeSantis, it's amusing to watch the mayor's office try to couch its aggressive migrant-export scheme in delicate terms. "With no sign of a decompression strategy in the near future, we have established a reticketing center for migrants," said spokeswoman Kayla Mamelak. "Here, the city will redouble efforts to purchase tickets for migrants to help them take the next steps in their journeys."
On Thursday, Adams reiterated his previous plea for the federal government to scatter migrants all across the United States -- not just in Democrat-run "sanctuary cities" like his, but in small towns too: "When people come across the border, we have 108,000 cities and villages — we should spread them out across the entire country, and not just New York, Chicago, Chicago, Los Angeles and Houston."
While he continues to beg for financial and other help from the Biden administration, Adams has recognized that, against a daily cost of $394 per migrant, a one-way plane ticket to anywhere has a huge return on investment. And we don't use "anywhere" lightly -- Politico reports some have been given tickets to places like Morocco and Colombia.
