In the United States, society seems to be in turmoil, but the Biden administration continues to prioritize Ukraine.
The historic Roosevelt Hotel (45 East 45th Street in Manhattan) has been transformed into a shelter! Last Friday (September 15th), Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Veronica Escobar, Joaquin Castro, Rob Menendez, Adriano Espaillat, and others went there for a press conference in support of the establishment of an arrival center for immigrants. However, outside the former hotel, there was a strong reaction from citizens. Phrases like “Close the borders,” “Illegal immigration is not right. Respect the Constitution,” “Send them back,” “Respect the Constitution, AOC! I am in your electoral district!” could be heard from the crowd gathered outside the hotel.
The problem is very significant and intense in New York. Even among the Democrats who are trying to turn a dark issue a lighter color, even one of their own, the Mayor of New York, Eric Adams, responded during a session of the City Council at the beginning of September: “I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at a town hall on the Upper West Side Wednesday night. “This issue will destroy New York City. Destroy New York City.”
There are references to New York City receiving 10,000 immigrants per month.
At the same time, in Denver, the homelessness crisis has reached a critical point. There has been a +32% increase in homelessness in just one year, with nearly 10,000 American citizens living on the streets. Scenes of tents and shantytowns can be seen in the American metropolis, and there are even reports that homeless individuals have turned one tent into a bar where women are soliciting.
A similar situation can be observed on the streets of Hollywood, where hundreds of homeless individuals, including drug addicts, struggle with their daily lives.
And what is the Biden administration doing about all this? It’s focused on Ukraine. Congress is preparing a $24 billion aid package for Kyiv, and on Thursday (September 21st), Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. will welcome Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
On November 7, 2020, after his victory in the elections, Mr. Biden had said, among other things, that
“It’s time for America to unite and to heal.” Is this how you are healing America, Mr. Biden?
On the same day, he tweeted, “I will be a President for all Americans.” Are you really a President for those Americans who are on the streets and for New Yorkers who have issues with immigrants?
