Rep. Tenney to Newsmax: Sanctuary Cities ‘Going Other Way’

Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., told Newsmax on Monday that Democrat politicians who maintain sanctuary cities and states are starting to go the other way on the issue now that their jurisdictions are facing crises fueled by staggering numbers of migrants.

“First of all, obviously, [President] Joe Biden is responsible for this,” Tenney told “The Record with Greta Van Susteren.” “That’s the primary obligation of the president is border security and national defense and he’s failing gloriously on this, and it’s hurting the American people. [New York City] Mayor [Eric] Adams recognizes what’s going on, but he still maintains a sanctuary city. There are many cities across upstate New York, where I represent, that are still sanctuary cities and, by the way, in Erie County, which is a neighboring county to my district, the county executive said anybody who doesn’t support this onslaught of illegal immigrants is someone who’s bigoted, someone who is heartless. Now they’re all going the other way. Now you see [Democrat New York Gov. Kathy Hochul] trying to say well maybe we should limit immigration.”

Adams is heading to Central and South America this week to discourage migrants from coming to New York City, which is struggling to absorb the thousands of illegal immigrants who have made their way to the Big Apple in recent months.
