There was a time, not so long ago, when supporting President Trump’s border wall could get you labeled a “racist.” While some die-hard progressive ninnies might still throw that term around, the tide is definitely turning. Much of this awakening can be credited to red state governors like Abbott and DeSantis, who sent busloads of illegals to blue “sanctuary cities” across the nation. This eye-opening move made the border crisis all too real for liberals. Suddenly, they got a firsthand look at just how destructive an uncontrolled bumrush at our border can be, revealing how quickly it can destabilize even a city as large and robust as New York.

The New York Times:

In a sharp escalation over the migrant crisis, Mayor Eric Adams claimed in stark terms that New York City was being destroyed by an influx of 110,000 asylum seekers from the southern border and said that he did not see a way to fix the issue.

“Let me tell you something New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I did not see an ending to — I don’t see an ending to this,” the mayor said on Wednesday night in his opening remarks at a town hall-style gathering in Manhattan. “This issue will destroy New York City.”

Mr. Adams, a Democrat in his second year in office, has clashed with leading members of his party as New York City has struggled to provide housing and services to the migrants. For months, Mr. Adams has criticized President Biden and Gov. Kathy Hochul for failing to help the city handle the asylum seekers and pleaded for additional funding and expedited work permits.

But the mayor’s comments on Wednesday were his most ominous yet. He pointed to new projections that the city’s budget gap could grow to nearly $12 billion — the same amount that city officials estimate that the migrants could cost the city over three years.

So it’s hardly shocking that public feelings have shifted dramatically regarding Trump’s border wall. Now that the dangers and devastation from this massive influx of illegals are painfully obvious, a vast majority of Americans support the wall, according to a new Fox News poll.
