(TheRedWire.com) – Democrats in New York have slammed the Biden administration and other leaders of the Democratic party for having failed to get a handle on immigration, pointing out the consequences of the increase in migration. While New York is generally considered to be a stronghold for the Democratic Party, certain local leaders have claimed that mass immigration was not only causing problems in New Yorkers’ daily lives but they were also affecting the party’s position within the state.
On Saturday, the New York Times published a piece that focused on the increase in migrants and the growing anxieties of Democrats in New York. In the piece, they further claimed that it is possible that the Democratic Party could end up facing another reckoning, which had previously occurred in the 2022 midterm election. It further pointed out how Democrat leaders were trying not to be “caught flat-footed” in the way they had once been caught, adding that currently, there were open clashes not only with the Republicans but also with many of the Democrat party leaders, including President Biden.
In one case, Rep. Pat Ryan, D-N.Y., the only Democrat not affected by the “Republican suburban demolition,” had to team up with two Republicans to get President Biden to declare a state of emergency. It further pointed out that the Representative had broken up with his party to vote against a bill that would provide shelter for migrants in schools.
In a previous interview, Ryan stated that the most important thing he had learned during his military service was that when one was “in charge,” one needed to “take charge.” As he pointed out, they were currently in a crisis, and the President who had been placed “in charge” along with his team needed to be the one to “take charge.”
