Schadenfreude: Citizens Of SCNY Say Their Quality Of Life Affected By All The Illegals

Why are Comrades in Sanctuary City New York complaining? They wanted this. They voted for this. They advocate for this. Now they got it. They should be happy that the city has at least 656,000 illegal aliens

New Yorkers’ Quality of Life Hit by Migrant Crisis

A majority of New Yorkers believe that the arrival of tens of thousands of migrants to the city since April 2022 has now turned into a full-blown crisis, according to a recent poll for Newsweek, with many saying their presence is impacting their quality of life.

Nearly half of respondents (45 percent) to a Redfield & Wilton Strategies poll conducted on behalf of Newsweek between May 12 and 14 said that the large number of migrants now living in New York City had “a significant amount” of impact on the quality of life for permanent residents. Some 30 percent said they had “a fair amount” of impact and 17 percent said their impact equated to “a small amount,” while only 8 percent believed it had no impact at all.

More than 180,000 migrants have passed through New York City since the spring of 2022, according to city officials, with most coming from countries in Latin America and the Caribbean and a smaller percentage having made their way to the U.S. from China and countries in Africa.

SCNY’s Comptroller said there were around 476k back in 2019. So, 656K. Of course, what of between 2019 and 2022?

While New Yorkers have been welcoming of migrants, trying to face up to a growing emergency, the city’s efforts to meet the flow of new arrivals and provide shelter for all have been costly and tiresome—and the poll shows they’re taking a toll on residents.

Welcoming, as long as they are Over There in some other section of SCNY, or, better yet, another city. Or state.

Some 64 percent of New York City residents responding to our poll agreed that the city is facing a migrant crisis, whereas only 11 percent thought that wasn’t the case.

Yeah, well, they should try visiting border towns one day to see the full effect of their beliefs.

Some 41 percent believed that the increased number of migrants in the city was having a significant impact on its crime rate. Some 31 percent said the impact was “fair,” 18 percent said it was “small” and 10 percent said the presence of migrants had no impact at all on the New York City crime rate. The poll was conducted among 974 eligible voters in New York.

But the data coming from the city’s authorities do not entirely back up their beliefs.

According to the latest data from the New York Police Department, the city saw reductions in overall crime through the first quarter of 2024. As of March, murder was down 19.4 percent, burglary dropped by 17.4 percent and grand larceny decreased by 7 percent compared to a year earlier. Felony assault was up 5.5 percent and robbery was unchanged.

All those stupid peasants should stop believing their stupid eyes as they witness all the issues the illegals bring. Their Betters know better.

    Well, to be fair, they wanted this, advocated for this, voted for this, but to happen other places.

  2. Professor Hale says:

    If Immigrants were a net benefit, no one would care if they were illegal.

    Like crime and inflation, a small amount can easily be accommodated by a large wealthy society. Hard to tell where the tipping point is to “too many”. Our politicians certainly don’t know the answer to that. But then, maybe their goals are not our goals.

  3. H says:

    Only about 10% of those 650000 remain in the public shelter system. An unknown but high percentage are mothers with children. The greatly feared “military aged men” move out to apartments where they can sleep better and thus be able to work.
    The 600000 that did moved out are to the economy. Many are not waiting for their work papers but instead using false social security numbers, contributing to social security without being able to claim benefits.

    In NYC 2020
    53% of all construction workers were immigrants doing mostly the hardest jobs, roofing, concrete work, laborers, the jobs Americans don’t want to do.

    Mr Teach likes it when they keep wages low
    They will work hard for 20 to 25 dollars per hour
    Trump used them back when he was still a builder.

      Gee, only 65000???

      At 2 per room that’s 32500 rooms.

      At 1000 per facility that’s 325 facilities. At about 2 facilities per acre that’s about 162 acres….

      Isn’t so small, is it??

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Few of those immigrants are here illegally. Why did Big Donnie, his puppet, Speaker Johnson and the Republicans refuse to change the laws? That’s rhetorical, Pissant (aka The Incel.

    Do Trumpism believers feel the government should have maintained the “Title 42 Covid health emergency” that blocked asylum seekers?

    The Biden administration is now turning away anyone seeking asylum who didn’t first seek protection in a country they traveled through, or first applied online. This is a version of a Trump administration policy that was overturned by the courts.

      Few of those immigrants are here illegally. Few?? And you know this how?

      You, and all of the Left, are unwilling to do anything but attack Trump. He truly lives in your head.

    • Dana says:

      Mr Dowd asks a question he thinks is rhetorical, but it really usn’t:

      Why did Big Donnie, his puppet, Speaker Johnson and the Republicans refuse to change the laws?

      It’s simple: because they preferred the existing immigration laws, which are stricter. Had the legislation proposed been stricter than current law, the GOP would have approved it.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Mr Dana claimed: because they (Trump and his Republicans) preferred the existing immigration laws, which are stricter

        The existing immigration laws are stricter than the Lankford bill?

        Any evidence to support that claim? It’s not reasonable to believe that Trump understood the bill. The bill was constructed by Senator James Lankford (R-OK) one of the most conservative US Senators. Trump stated publicly: on Truth Social that approving additional resources for the border would make Republicans “look bad.”

        The existing immigration laws help Trump’s electoral chances. Period.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          Keep talkin’ that sexy talk, fat baby.
          Brandon deep-sixed the existing immigration law when he took over.

          Karen (aka Rimjob) is miserable. His disorder permeates his entire being every waking moment. He is a sickening loser and President Trump lives in his brain 24/7.

    If you believe that you are ignorant.

    If you don’t you lie.

    I opt for the latter.

    • Professor Hale says:

      Technically he is correct on both parts. The existing immigration laws today are the same ones that were in effect during the Trump administration. The difference is that Biden’s shadow government controllers are openly defying those laws and exploiting them for their own electoral gain. The fact that the Biden administration has been mainlining tens of millions of immigrants into our country in the past three years definitely works in Trump’s favor because the American people do not want the country overrun with foreigners and remember things weren’t that bad when Trump was president. The only law that has changed is the COVID restriction. Everything the Biden Administration claims they need a law for, they can already do with teh laws they have now. What they really want a new law for is a vehicle to carry tens of billions of dollars to fund more of their anti-American programs and policies as well as pay offs to their NGO, universities, and city governments.

      Democrats hope to gain by massively inflating the population in blue areas to permanently taint the electoral college and congressional apportionment in the next census. We can already estimate that California has 15 electoral votes on the basis of foreign citizens living in their boundaries. No other country on the planet arranges their government to suit foreigners at the expense of native citizens. There are so many foreign citizens in Northern Virginia that they have changed the complexity of the state from Red to Strong Blue. This was true before counting the Biden administration flood. Normal Americans see this and do not want it. Even many democratic party groups are starting to question whose side the Democratic party is on and who are they representing. They look like the party of criminals, foreign interests, childless women, and 1% sexual deviants.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Commenter claims: The existing immigration laws today are the same ones that were in effect during the Trump administration.

        Not exactly. Then President Trump’s “handling” of the Covid-19 pandemic allowed him to declare a national health emergency.

        In March 2020, the U.S. CDC issued an order limiting migration across the southern and northern borders. Title 42 is the name of the emergency health authority. The order authorized Customs and Border Protection to immediately remove migrants, including people seeking asylum, to prevent the spread of the virus.

        When the CDC moved to lift Title 42 in 2022, moderate Democrats, including Sens. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Raphael Warnock (D-GA) wanted it to stay.

        An LA judge’s ruling (Dec 2022) immigration authorities can no longer use Title 42 to quickly expel prospective asylum-seekers.

  6. L'Roy White says:

    It’s amusing how Elwood keeps citing laws that are either not followed, totally ignored, or irrelevant. we all know that illegals are flooding into this country and they’re being given drivers licenses which mean they can go through motor voter. They’re also being lined up to vote and if that’s not bad enough they’re being used to increase the number of people occupying a state thereby increasing the electoral votes. As Elwood would say there’s more than one way to steal an election!

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Mr White,

      One lie at a time, please.

      Mr david claimed that immigrants had to apply for asylum from outside the US, which is untrue. That’s all.

      • L'Roy White says:

        Asylum seekers must be in the US or at a point of entry which is an airport or an official land crossing to request the opportunity for asylum. There’s no way to ask for a visa or any type of authorization in advance for the purposes of seeking asylum you just have to show up. I think perhaps David was mixed up.

        But it does prove how fucked up and convoluted the entire immigration system has become. There’s also some other kind of law or rule that states if you pass through another country before you reach the United States you had to ask for asylum there.

        I don’t know all the rules regarding asylum immigration illegal immigration or any of it. It’s like trying to determine with all the different ways the Democrats stole the last election putting it together to prove it. Between illegal drop boxes changing the laws and states federal courts ruling on state issues etcetera etcetera etcetera all the way down to pulling boxes of ballots from under the desks closing ballot places early and of course the 9 million dead people voting that the Democrats always come up with. It’s just almost impossible to put together the whole sequence of events which is precisely what they’re betting on.

        Where do you see the mess they do this time around. Because they gotta come up with more than 81 million votes. Check this out

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Mr White,

          ANYONE can put ANYTHING on youtube.

          Republicans won’t say if they’ll abide by the results of the 2024 election. If Trump loses, it will be like 2020, only worse. Are you ready to take up arms against the US to install Trump in DC?

          Congress makes laws. They need to come up with a bipartisan comprehensive immigration plan.

          Anyway, check out the figure in this report to view the border encounters by year since 2000.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            Didn’t seem to have a major problem with immigration when President Trump was in office.

            Bwaha! Lolgf

  7. L'Roy White says:

    Ohh come on Elwood. The YouTube bit was supposed to be funny. These guys are right you really have no sense of humor at all.

    Democrats won’t say if they’ll abide by the results of the 2024 election. If trump wins it’ll be like 2020 only worse because the Democrats control the military. Are you ready to take up arms against the US to install Biden for a second term?

    I am ready to take up arms should I believe we’re being ripped off for another election. I’m not gonna tolerate it anymore I want fair and free elections. I wanna ID that election so that we know who’s voting. I don’t want them changing the rules the month of the election I don’t want drop boxes on the street I don’t want 20,000 people coming from the same address This is a bunch of nonsense.

    The Republicans abided by the 2020 election even though we think it was stolen. You’re the ones who got all emotional and started calling a protest an insurrection. There was an insurrection those 30,000 people would have been armed. Bear in mind those 30,000 people sure as hell owned arms and still do. Remember they’re conservatives. If we wanted a fuckin insurrection we’d have had a fuckin insurrection what is it with you people?

    You have literally talked yourself into believing that the one time we actually had a protest March it wasn’t a protest March at all but an insurrection. And you’re currently in the process of convincing yourselves thanks to morons like Robert De Niro if Trump is elected he has no intention of ever leaving office. That isn’t that stupid? Nobody anywhere other than leftists have suggested that Trump wouldn’t leave office peacefully like he did the first time. you do realize he already served as president of the United states for four years. And they were four good years with the exception of the COVID virus which he didn’t do you just happened to be in office when it hit. And he took the advice of all those people in the federal government that told him what to do because nobody else had ever been through that before. He took the advice of Fauci and the NIH and the American Medical Association and every other medical outfit in the world. Just like anybody else in the office would have done. And you know damn well it’s true because I would have too. And so would you if you were president at the time that the outbreak. Nobody knew what to do they were taking advice wherever they could get it. some was good some was bad.

    The point is he stepped down from office when his term was over. Just like every president before him president and if he wins this election he’ll step down just like every president before him. And to sit there and constantly scare the bejeezus out everybody saying he won’t is not only disingenuous it’s a downright lie. In fact one could say it’s fomenting insurrection by use of disinformation.

    Now you’ve watched there’s BS show of a trial that’s been going on in New York. We’ve been watching it too with you watching corrupt judges who have their daughters making money off of it who should have recused themselves at the beginning refuse to accept objections from the defense. We’ve seen a calculated corrupt method of using the law against a citizen of this country. That is not right by any standard even the crooked standards of leftists. And when we say leftists willing to corrupt the law in that way and the twist the laws and the rules to benefit themselves in that way and then you ask us to believe that you didn’t cheat in an election well guess what sparky go fuck yourselves because you’re already proving yourselves untrustworthy.

    And yes Congress does make the laws and they need to come up with a bipartisan comprehensive immigration plan. But that’s not possible if the Democrat party is going to insist upon using immigration as a recruiting plan for the party. If you’re just bringing people in to make future Democrat voters out of them nobody’s gonna have a comprehensive bipartisan immigration plan cause you’re playing is an immigration it’s infiltration.

    So 2023 ended up with the most immigrant encounters at the border since 2000. We know that. But I don’t trust any of the numbers and I don’t care which so-called fact checkers are putting the numbers out there. I just don’t trust them anymore.
