NOT IN NY: Bill De Blasio to SUE Trump Admin Over Plan to Move Illegal Immigrants to Sanctuary Cities

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.16.19

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled his plan to sue the Trump administration over the President’s latest proposal to relocate detained illegal immigrants to Sanctuary Cities across the US; calling the policy “just plain illegal.”

“It’s illegal. It is just plain illegal. We will meet him in court. We will beat him in court,” De Blasio told NY1.

The Big Apple Mayor’s comments are in stark contrast to other liberal leaders across the country who embraced the President’s proposal.

“The city would be prepared to welcome these immigrants just as we have embraced our immigrant communities for decades,” said Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney.

“As a welcoming city, we would welcome these migrants with open arms, just as we welcomed Syrian refugees, just as we welcomed Puerto Ricans displaced by Hurricane Maria,” added outgoing Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

DE BLASIO DIGS IN: The NYC Mayor Urges Top Dems to Get Behind His Universal Healthcare Program

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.14.19

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio urged top Democrats across the country to support his renewed push for universal healthcare over the weekend; saying “we need this party to be the party of working people again.”

De Blasio was speaking with CNN when he was asked to comment on his recent ‘NYC CARE’ program; a new government entitlement that “guarantees” comprehensive healthcare to more than 600,000 uninsured New Yorkers.

“This is the kind of thing Democrats should stand for,” said the progressive leader. “If we say to the American people: Our job is to get you health care no matter what, no matter how much money you make, no matter what your situation is, that’s the kind of thing that actually is going to resonate with the American people because so many Americans are struggling . . . to make ends meet​. Health care is one of their biggest expenses.”

De Blasio’s ‘NYC CARE’ program is estimated to cost local taxpayers upwards of $100 million per year.

DE BLASIO DEFLECTS: NYC Mayor Blames Big Apple CHAOS on ‘Bad Luck’

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.16.18

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio deflected fierce criticism of his administration’s handling of a mild November snowstorm Friday; blaming the total chaos on “bad luck” and unreliable weather reports.

The prominent Democrat was speaking with NY1 when he was asked to respond to furious residents after the normally congested evening commute took some locals 12 hours to travel just four or five miles.

“There are definitely some things we need to learn from this and things we need to do better,” admitted the mayor. “But it’s also important to note we got just about every form of bad luck we could have gotten yesterday. The weather service reports changed radically yesterday.”

“I can’t remember that happening previously in the middle of what seemed to be a normal day,” said de Blasio on the sudden closure of the George Washington Bridge during rush hour. “That really threw everything off. That had a horrible, extreme reaction on the entire city.”
