Speaker of the House Mike Johnson has criticized both President Joe Biden and New York City Mayor Eric Adams in relation to the rising migrant crisis.  


On Wednesday, Johnson (R-La.) blasted the president’s administration and Adams (D-N.Y.) after Brooklyn high school students were forced to vacate the classroom and go fully remote as the migrants took over their campus.

“This week, Secretary Mayorkas confirmed that 85% of the illegal immigrants who are apprehended at the border are released into the interior United States,” Johnson said. “Now, because of the administration’s policy choices, students and teachers are having to turn to remote learning in order to accommodate illegal immigrants at their school. From the president on down to city mayors, support for illegal immigration has trickled down, thereby prioritizing the needs of non-citizens over the needs of our own.”

“If Biden and Mayorkas refuse to reverse course and secure the southern border, our students and schools will continue to pay the price for the administration’s abdication of duty,” Johnson added.

Nearly 2,000 undocumented migrants were advised to flee from a large tent shelter and were moved to a second-floor gym at James Madison High School, which is located five miles away from the shelter. There was a fear that the “large migrant tent at Floyd Bennett Field might collapse” due to heavy rain and wind.

“House Republicans have solutions: we passed the Schools Not Shelters Act in July to ensure schools serve as sanctuaries of study, not casualties of sanctuary cities,” Johnson also said. “Sadly, President Biden threatened to veto the bill.”

All of the migrants had been removed from the school by Wednesday at 4:30 a.m., an evacuation that sources called “madness.” Despite the migrants vacating the premise, students were still expected to participate in virtual classes the next day.

Just after midnight, Adams uploaded pictures of the 1,900 migrants spread out on the gym floor on X, praising the work being done by city officials to keep “asylum seekers safe and dry before they depart tomorrow morning.”
