It’s been several years since Joe Biden took office and effectively opened America’s southern border to tens of thousands of illegal aliens to arrive daily.

Millions have flooded into border states since then and officials there repeatedly have called on Biden to close the door, halting the flow, as President Donald Trump had done largely with policies and fencing.

But now, after thousands of those aliens have been moved from border states to longtime sanctuary locations like New York City, one aide to Mayor Eric Adams has become an activist on the issue.

Insisting that Biden shut off the stream.

A report at the Gothamist explains Ingrid Lewis-Martin, Adams’ senior adviser, said, “We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do its job: close the borders.”

She said, “And until you close the borders, you need to come up with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them throughout all of our 50 states.”

The charges mark “an escalation in the rhetoric” from New York City officials on the migrant crisis. Officials there estimated more than 116,000 have arrived in New York City since April 2022.

Conservatives in Congress already have made the same claim multiple times. Specifically they’ve asked for a return of Trump’s “remain in Mexico policy” that kept, until it was canceled by Biden, asylum-seekers from entering the country until their cases were processed in court.

The aide’s comments also came just as New York’s lawyers are challenging a longstanding right-to-shelter law, and contended the city “should not have to shelter all of these immigrants.”

Estimates are that the city last year spent some $2 billion to care for the newcomers.

Fabien Levy, the city’s deputy mayor for communications, later posted on social media a response: “To be very clear, and as @NYCMayor has said over and over again, of course this nation should continue to welcome immigrants — both those seeking asylum and those who are not. The U.S. will always do its part to be a country that takes in those seeking refuge from war, discrimination, & strife. But as we’ve stated repeatedly, we need a real decompression strategy at the border so that all communities across the U.S. can do their part in providing the compassion & care NYC has provided to more than 118,000 asylum seekers since last year.”

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Believe it or not, today’s high priests of climate-change apocalypse are correct in predicting that in just a few short years, the earth will become miserable, wretched and almost uninhabitable by human beings. But the grim future they envision won’t come about because of “catastrophic climate change,” but rather, because of the implementation of their completely insane and truly catastrophic agenda.

As Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore recently admitted, “If they actually achieve Net Zero, at least 50% of the population would die of hunger and disease.” Likewise, writes energy expert and author Alex Epstein: “Today’s proposed policies to rapidly eliminate fossil fuel use would, if fully implemented, have truly apocalyptic consequences – making the world an impoverished, dangerous, and miserable place for most people.”

Question: When the scientific case for global warming apocalypse consists primarily of a 1-degree Celsius rise in temperature over more than 130 years, what explains the obsession with an imminent, climate-caused end of the world?

Although many groups have been drawn into the Climate Change Cult – from the news media (which has warned of climate catastrophe, either global warming or a “new ice age,” for over a century!), to innocent school kids indoctrinated by hysterical leftist teachers, to liberal Democrats who claim “climate change” will destroy the earth in a few years – the REAL villains are the national and global elites who KNOW the apocalyptic global warming religion is just a cruel hoax, but promote and exploit it as a means of accomplishing their ultimate goal: Transforming and ruling the world.

The heart and soul of today’s bizarre, pagan climate-change religion, and the global elites’ strategies for using it to rule all of mankind, is powerfully exposed and illuminated in the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, an issue titled “CULT OF THE CLIMATE APOCALYPSE: The elites’ breathtaking strategy for ruling the world.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
