Trying to deal with the massive influx of illegal aliens who have entered the country in the past two years — while the administration has refused to enforce the law and crippled border defenses — has exposed the utter ineptitude at the top. “I was told that we have an individual who’s coordinating the operation, and as I shared with White House officials, why don’t I know who that is?” Adams said. (Oddly enough, the name “Kamala Harris” didn’t come up, though she was allegedly put in charge of bringing the border under control back in March 2021. That’s working out perfectly.) The mayor went on to talk about a “long-term solution,” which he naturally blamed Republicans for blocking. But then he got to the real heart of the matter. “When my house is burning, I don’t want to hear about fire prevention,” Adams said. “Let’s put out the fire. And the fire right now is the overproliferation of migrant asylum seekers in several cities in the country.” “Overproliferation of migrant asylum seekers” is a $50 way of saying “illegal aliens,” but for liberals, language is used to obfuscate the truth, not elucidate it. Whatever language he used, the response couldn’t have been what his hosts were looking for, not even on the “Morning Joe” Twitter thread, where it would be reasonable to expect liberals to be hanging around.
In a Friday night news dump, the Biden administration finally released border numbers for December 2022. Here’s what you need to know about the highest monthly total in American history. pic.twitter.com/quGLOpVZXe— FAIR (@FAIRImmigration) January 25, 2023
It was all okay when Texas towns were having to deal with the influx of millions, yes millions, of illegals infiltrating their towns. It’s only a problem when NYC has to deal with it. Hypocrite!— Kay Kay Dub (@KayKayDubya) January 25, 2023

Off the liberal reservation, the reaction was even worse — for liberals, anyway.
New York is a sanctuary city…oh wait…we’ve gotta do something about the migrant invasion!!! 🙄— eyewitness views (@seethew0rld) January 25, 2023
The reality of the immigration crisis is not that Republicans need to come to the table for a “long-term solution.” The reality is that the problem is one of Joe Biden’s own making. And the solution was demonstrated only a few years ago by then-President Donald Trump: Closing the border and keeping it closed is a matter of priorities and political will. In a Democratic administration, there’s no logic in blaming a Republican. It’s possible that the other hosts on “Morning Joe” realized that the conversation was not a winner for their team. After Adams’ “house is burning” comment, the conversation quickly moved on to more specifically New York issues. But even MSNBC viewers had to understand what had happened in the migrant interview segment. Progressives were happy to cheer for open borders when it just meant Texans and Arizonans were being overrun in the name of global equity, but with illegal immigration becoming a budget-busting problem in urban areas, those oh-so-welcoming “sanctuary” cities aren’t going to be so welcoming anymore. For all the Democrat talk about “root causes” (and the continuing national embarrassment that is Vice President Kamala Harris), the cause is at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., where the almost-certainly corrupt Joe Biden is putting his doddering stamp on the country by torching the laws that help keep it secure. So in an interview Wednesday on one of cable TV’s most liberal programs, the mayor of one of the country’s most liberal cities torched a liberal Democratic president, if only by accident: Adams’ house is burning down, the flames are spreading, and even Democrats can figure out that Biden is the arsonist is here.
