NY Gov. Hochul Suddenly Shifts Gears On Illegal Immigration As Her State Is Overrun
Only a year ago NY Governor Kathy Hochul adamantly supported illegal immigration, and some argue she encouraged it by stating publicly that New York was “desperate for workers” and that the migrant were “good for the economy.” However, as NYC and the state in general is being overrun with hundred of thousands of illegals, suddenly the governor has changed her tune – Now she believes at least “some restrictions” should be put in place to limit the number of people who enter the country.
NY Gov. Kathy Hochul Calls for a “Limit On Who Can Come Across the Border”
“It is too open right now. People coming from all over the world are finding their way through simply saying they need asylum and…ending up in the streets of New York.”pic.twitter.com/fcCmQMpUqc

The abrupt change of heart follows a swiftly derailing situation in the sanctuary state, as local governments struggle to house and feed the surging invasion of asylum seekers demanding access to welfare services. Reports from a year ago should have made the outcome obvious, with Illegals canvassing door-to-door in NYC asking for handouts and homeless shelters packed to capacity. At the time, Hochul was more concerned with wristbands put on migrants bussed from Texas that had barcodes designed to show that they arrived safely to New York, calling the practice inhumane.
Today, Democrats from Washington DC to New York to Chicago are finally getting a taste of their own Robitussin and they really don’t like it. The concept of open borders and sanctuary cities was perfectly acceptable to them, as long as they never had to deal with the direct consequences. How quickly people adjust their thinking when the crisis they caused is on their doorstep.

After former President Donald Trump fiercely condemned New York Supreme Court First District Judge Arthur Engoron’s ruling that he deceived banks and insurers, critics said the case could endanger the Empire State’s status as a business capital.
Former Bush Deputy Assistant Attorney General John Yoo said on FOX News Monday that the case could also put Trump “out of business” in the city most synonymous with his real estate empire.
Engoron, a Democrat, ruled prior to Monday’s court date that Trump overvalued assets and exaggerated his net worth, in response to a civil suit by New York Democratic Attorney General Letitia James.
Yoo noted that people like Engoron and James, whose roles are established to be more legal than political, are elected partisan offices, and Engoron’s district – which comprises Manhattan – houses mostly Democrats.
“But what people should ask is are what they’re doing in the best interests of the people of the state? Is it a good idea for the state of New York, on behalf of its people, to use its vast law enforcement powers to go after and single out President Trump for things where nobody is claiming they were harmed? No one claims they were actually defrauded,” Yoo said on “America Reports,” adding that no banks appear to claim damages against the former president.
James notably pledged during her campaign for attorney general to be a “real pain in the a–” to then-President Trump, who she publicly declared an “illegitimate” officeholder.
Trump referenced James’ routine jabs during his critique of Engoron, and Yoo warned that the attorney general may be unintentionally sending a strong warning to businesses and financial institutions on behalf of her state in a similar regard.
“New York City is the greatest financial center in the country, if not the world,” he said. “Are they now going to start using their vast powers to say, ‘We’re happy to have you come to New York as long as you’re a Democrat to do business? But if you’re a conservative, we’re going to use the powers of law enforcement against you’?”
“That may undermine the position of New York – the city and the state – as a nation’s great financial capital place to do business.”
During the court break, Trump claimed experts in Florida – where Mar-a-Lago, which was ruled misvalued, is located – have accused the judge of not properly understanding real estate law. Trump argued the judge should be booted from the bench and his case mooted.
While the Trump Organization has hotels, clubs and lodgings in other states like Hawaii, Virginia, Illinois and abroad in Ireland and Scotland, Yoo also told FOX News one potential outcome of the case is that the former president may not be able to maintain holdings in the state where the former president’s name is most associated.
Yoo noted Trump borrowed money against properties alleged to be under- or over-valued, but repaid the loans, which helps the former president’s argument that no one was harmed and that he is the subject of a political prosecution.
While Trump cannot end up in prison if he loses the civil case, he can however be subjected to a legally-enforceable order affecting his company’s ability to operate in its home base.
“This is a civil case where all … the state’s trying to do is get money back, and is trying, maybe, to get an order putting the Trump Organization out of business in the state of New York.,” Yoo said.
During the first day of the non-jury trial, James attorney Kevin Wallace said Trump “lied year after year,” while also citing pretrial testimony from Michael Cohen – Trump’s fixer-turned-foe who spend time in an Otisville, N.Y. prison for tax evasion among other offenses.
Still, Trump changed his tune on Judge Engoron by the end of the first day of proceedings. Trump left the New York courtroom praising Engoron for what he called an “outstanding” last five minutes that, according to Trump, fell in his favor.
“That last five minutes was outstanding because the judge essentially conceded that they statute of limitations that we won at the court of appeals is in effect. Therefore, about 80% of the case is over,” Trump told reporters after exiting the court.
It wasn’t immediately clear what Engoron’s statement entailed, but one of Trump’s lawyers said the statement appeared to mean the judge was “agreeing that all the transactions enclosed prior to 2014 are now out of the case.

Sidney Powell Paid For Georgia Election Machine Examination Upon ‘Threat’, Her Lawyer Says
Authored by Petr Svab via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours)
Sidney Powell, a former federal prosecutor charged with breaching election machines in Georgia, had nothing to do with the breach, save for paying for it after the fact, and only because the forensic firm that did it threatened to dump the data online, her lawyer said in a recent court filing.
Ms. Powell was charged as part of the election interference case against former President Donald Trump that was brought on Aug. 14 by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. It alleges that the efforts of President Trump and 18 others, including Ms. Powell, to challenge the 2020 election results amounted to a racketeering conspiracy.
Ms. Willis has accused Ms. Powell of participating in the alleged conspiracy and conspiracies to commit computer trespass, computer theft, computer invasion of privacy, election fraud, and defrauding the state.
The charges are tied to a Jan. 7, 2021, incident in which personnel of data forensic company SullivanStrickler copied data from election machines and computers in Coffee County, Georgia.
The lawyer for Ms. Powell, Brian Rafferty, has vehemently denied the allegations and is seeking dismissal of the charges.
Mr. Rafferty has argued that examination of the machines wasn’t a crime because it was authorized by the Coffee County Election Board. Even if the board didn’t ultimately have the authority to allow the examination, the people involved operated under the belief that their action was authorized. For their actions to be criminal, they would have to have been undertaken with a knowing lack of authority.
Further still, however, Ms. Powell didn’t organize or participate in the incident, Mr. Rafferty asserted.
“There are no communications of any kind between Ms. Powell and any of the alleged coconspirators or unindicted coconspirators that evince any agreement by Ms. Powell to have SullivanStrickler personnel to travel to Coffee County or to contract for their services for Coffee County—much less to do so for any illegal purpose,” he said in a Sept. 28 filing.
Ms. Powell challenged the election results in Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Arizona, but she never represented President Trump, he said.
“It cannot be disputed that Ms. Powell went her own way following the election, and she never reached an agreement on a course of action with any indicted or unindicted coconspirator,” he said.
She did share evidence used in her lawsuits, all of which failed, with President Trump and his aides, and she advised him on his authorities in case of foreign interference in the election, Mr. Rafferty acknowledged.
“All those substantive communications, limited as they were, effectively ended by December 19, 2020,” he said.
He also acknowledged that “Defending the Republic Inc., a non-profit Ms. Powell founded, paid a bill from SullivanStrickler,” but he added that it did so only upon the company’s “threat to post information publicly online after its technicians apparently collected data from Coffee County machines.”
SullivanStrickler didn’t respond to a request for comment.
“Ms. Powell did not request that trip; she did not even know of that trip—much less authorize it,” Mr. Rafferty said.
“Accordingly, she did not agree with anyone to undertake the collection of Coffee County data—even though it was done with permission of Coffee County officials—and the State has no evidence she conspired with anyone to violate any law.”
Ms. Powell and another defendant, attorney Kenneth Chesebro, asked for a speedy trial, which is scheduled to commence on Oct. 23. Other defendants will be tried separately, though it’s not clear when. Several defendants are also trying to have the case removed to a federal court. In some of the latest developments, lawyers for President Trump informed the court that they will not joint the removal effort.
President Trump is facing another indictment for his election challenges in a federal court in the District of Columbia. He’s also fighting charges of illegal retention of defense information in Florida and more charges in New York for allegedly fraudulent bookkeeping entries. In a separate civil suit targeting his businesses, a New York judge recently ordered his businesses in the state dissolved.
President Trump has denounced the legal cases against himself as politically motivated efforts to interfere with his 2024 presidential run.
