After migrants were snuck into his small, upstate New York town in the dead of night by Democrat New York Mayor Eric Adams, the Town of Colonie filed a lawsuit against the city and the state capital of Albany, Supervisor Peter Crummey revealed Monday.
Instead of busing the migrants to Albany – a self-professed “sanctuary” city – Mayor Adams had them sent to Colonie, providing “zero cooperation or coordination with the town,” Crummey said in an interview with Fox & Friends First:
“He never notified me or any member of Colonie government as he moved – spirited through the night – bringing a bus of migrants here in the town of Colonie, at midnight, under the cloak of darkness, on Memorial Day weekend.”
“If the plan is so meritorious, why sneak into the town of Colonie?” Crummey asked.
Colonie’s lawsuit contends that Mayor Adams does not have the authority to violate the city’s laws by forcing it to become a sanctuary for migrants, Crummey explained:
"My position in this matter is really the jurisdiction of the mayor of the city of New York. And does he have jurisdiction to unilaterally insert a New York City program into municipalities outside of his jurisdiction? And, in addition to doing so, also violate our local laws and the process."
“I’ve been an attorney for 40 years, a judge for 21 years. I don’t believe he has jurisdiction, here in the town of Colonie,” Crummey told Fox & Friends First.
Colonie isn’t the only victim of Mayor Adams’ scheme to forcibly redistribute aliens and expand his sanctuary realm, The New York Post reports:
“Adams has attracted similar criticism in recent weeks from other upstate officials after sending migrants to their communities while arguing the Big Apple needs help handling the waves of asylum seekers arriving from the U.S. Southern Border.”
“New York City Mayor Eric Adams' ‘refusal to respect our county executive’s order places the public health, safety and welfare of our residents and those migrants on his bus in jeopardy,’ Crummey previously said in a statement, The Times Union reported at the time of the incident.
"Notwithstanding that the Wolf Road area has no services necessary to service an influx of persons of unknown health, dietary, and behavioral histories," Crummey wrote.
His statement went on to state that New York City Mayor Eric Adams' "refusal to respect our county executive’s order places the public health, safety and welfare of our residents and those migrants on his bus in jeopardy."
Colonie will have its day in court this Friday, May 9.
