The undercover conservative journalist group Project Veritas has just revealed that what DeSantis and Abbott have been up to is working.
In an undercover journalist sting, Project Veritas spoke with City Hall staffer Chris Baugh who on camera said: “what Abbott has done has proven effective … We have more people in social services then we have ever had potentially in history.”
He admitted that the city is struggling to comply with its own sanctuary “right to shelter” law.
The staffer also said that Biden has left Democrats out to dry.
Baugh was recorded saying that Abbott has put Adams in a “perilous” situation, and now the city is facing a $10 billion deficit by 2026. Additionally, the “free” COVID money is gone, and Biden isn’t helping.
“I don’t think [President Joe] Biden is in a position where he is going to be like, ‘OK New York, here’s a billion dollars,” he added.
“The optics of this are bad for Biden and they’re bad for the mayor. I think Biden saying I’m going to give away money to New York City because they can’t take care of these migrants is going to be just bad politics for him — and frankly I don’t know how much Biden is going to appreciate a mayor saying, ‘hey you owe blue cities money because of this migrant crisis,’” the staffer said.
“Eventually, it’s going to make Biden look bad which we’re a month out from the midterms and he’s not going to like that. It’s a very perilous situation … and I don’t know that Eric Adams is capable enough to navigate it.”
Baugh also said that Adams has no plans on what to do as more migrants pour into the city and his only option is to cut services.
“This city has a ‘right to shelter’ law. Republicans are like, ‘here’s 11,000 people we don’t want to deal with’ and our laws state we have to take care of them. That’s the law of the city [but they are] not telling us when these people are coming, they’re not telling us when the buses are arriving, they’re not telling us who’s on them . . .
“We’re building a tent city. We’re parking these people in plastic tents on Randalls Island. They’re not getting good stuff. We’re kicking them out of hotels because it’s tourist season and hotels want to raise their rates,” he complained.
Think about this…NYC is only getting a small fraction of the migrants that are pouring into this country compared to what is going on in Texas, and it’s bringing these blue-run cities to their knees. It’s a testiment to the leadership of Abbott that he’s able to deal with Biden’s mess.
