Bloomberg Rips Biden's Border Crisis, Says Democrats Will Suffer Over It

Democratic billionaire Michael Bloomberg blasted the Biden administration Monday, saying that the approach to the border crisis is hurting New York City.

Bloomberg praised New York City Mayor Eric Adams for his efforts despite the lack of federal help, noting that the issue could lead to losses for Democrats in 2024.

“Think about it: We have a system that essentially allows an unlimited number of people to cross our borders, forbids them from working, offers them free housing, and grants them seven years of residency before ruling on whether they can legally stay,” Bloomberg, 81, wrote in the New York Times.

“It would be hard to devise a more backward and self-defeating system,” Bloomberg said.

"Bloomberg, who ran alongside Biden in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary before dropping out of the race to the eventual winner, criticized current federal law which prevents asylum seekers who have already been admitted into the U.S. from being able to work immediately," Newsweek reported.

"The process of receiving a work authorization can take a year or longer. In the meantime, how are asylum seekers expected to pay rent and feed themselves and their families?" Bloomberg wrote.

Bloomberg also noted that New York City is not the only area suffering from the increase in migrants under the Biden administration.

He also mentioned Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, Denver, and other cities that are now struggling to function over the large number of migrants moving in over such a short time.

While Bloomberg holds Democratic views on immigration, his approach is far different from Biden's open-door policies that have led to historic levels of migrants crossing the southern border.

The new problems created by the mass migration of migrants into U.S. cities will likely extend for years as Democrats could face major losses in areas usually favorable to its party.
