New York has turned into a basket case from failed Democrat policies.
One jaw-dropping decision to put students last was beyond the pale.
And Ron DeSantis lowered the boom on New York for this insane policy harming students.
New York City is being overwhelmed by the flood of illegal aliens into the city from President Joe Biden’s border crisis.
The Big Apple bills itself as a sanctuary city, but it cannot house the growing number of illegal aliens that have flocked there or been bussed in by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
A cold snap hit the city and that left New York officials scrambling to figure out where to house illegal aliens.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams made the shocking decision to relocate 2,000 illegal aliens from a temporary shelter at Floyd Bennett Field, a former airfield, to Brooklyn’s James Madison High School, the alma mater of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
The high school was shut down, and attending students were forced to move to remote learning.
“We want to make sure people are safe,” Adams said.
Students had their education disrupted to accommodate illegal aliens.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis ripped the infuriating decision at a campaign event in Iowa.
“You probably got a lot of single moms who are the breadwinner, so they’ve got to work during the day,” DeSantis said. “Your kids are supposed to go to school, and then someone tells you, ‘Sorry, your kids have to stay home.’”
“Why? Was there some type of real significant storm or some emergency? Was there a flu outbreak? Well, why are they having to stay home?” DeSantis continued. “They’re having to stay home because the [government] is commandeering the school to house illegal aliens. You talk about putting Americans last?”

DeSantis said that the school closure was an example of the illegal immigration crisis in President “Joe Biden’s America in a nutshell.”
“When I’m President, this immigration stuff, we’re building a big consensus in this country because, you know, some of these areas in New York City, these are very liberal voters usually, but they are, almost all of them saying: this can’t go on like this” DeSantis said. “You can’t just have schools overtaken; hospitals overrun.”
DeSantis slammed Biden for intentionally causing the border crisis and creating chaos like the situation unfolding in Brooklyn.
“He could stop it, and he’s choosing not to,” DeSantis said.
Every state has become a border state because of the staggering scale of illegal immigration under Joe Biden.
