It’s difficult to look at the photo of 1-year-old Nicholas Feliz-Dominici, who died Friday from fentanyl exposure at a Bronx daycare.
So handsome with his little suspenders and blue bow tie, crisp white shirt and tiny sneakers, he looks directly at the camera with a determined look.
Just by looking at him, you can tell he was a beloved child.
Imagine his poor mother, packing his bag for the day, dressing him, dropping him off at the new daycare, kissing him and maybe feeling a little guilty as she leaves for work.
This is what working mothers in this city do every day.
They should be able to trust that the daycare they pay to care for their babies is not operating as a fentanyl factory.
“He was so smart,” his distraught mother, Zoila Dominici, 34, a caregiver for the elderly, told CBS. “He would repeat everything you would say to him. He had so much love. . . He was the little prince of the house. . . I have to thank God for the time we spent with him.
Dad Otoniel Feliz said it was their little boy’s first week at daycare and his wife left early to pick Nicholas up Friday because she missed him.
Another baby boy and his 8-month-old sister were given doses of Narcan, which is used to reverse the effects of opioid overdoses.
They remain in the hospital.
Grei Mendez De Ventura, 36, owner of Divino Nino daycare, and Carlisto Acevedo Brito, 41, faced numerous charges, including murder.
Cops found a kilo of fentanyl and a kilo of newspaper in a room at the daycare that Brito, apparently a “newcomer” from the Dominican Republic, was renting in De Ventura.
These are two of those responsible for the death of little Nicolas.
But there is a broader culpability.
President Biden’s open border is killing.
He kills the poor souls seeking a better life who answer his siren call and make the dangerous journey from over 150 countries to cross illegally into the United States.
It kills more than 100,000 Americans each year from drug overdoses caused by fentanyl sent here by Mexican drug cartels.
Joe Biden and the Democratic politicians who support him have ensured that New York is flooded with fentanyl and overwhelmed by an influx of illegal immigrants.
A pill mill in a daycare is just one example of a myriad of terrible consequences that we cannot even predict.
Since Joe Biden came to power and recklessly dismantled every Trump-era policy, at least eight million illegal immigrants have responded to his invitation.
And who can blame them? You would be crazy not to come to the land of milk and honey if you lived in a country in ruins.
Free room and board in a fancy Manhattan hotel, free education, free medical care, free legal assistance, it’s all free.
The sugar is on the table for the whole world to come and get. How can it be a surprise that they came?
New Yorkers must now compete for limited resources with illegal migrants: more than 110,000 arrived last year alone, according to official figures.
Schools are overwhelmed with classes of children who don’t speak English – or even Spanish – and who may have other learning difficulties.
“Stealing the birthright”?
“Close the damn border!” » » shouted angry New Yorkers at New York Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jerry Nadler as they attempted to hold a press conference outside the Roosevelt Hotel to wax lyrical about how the immigration “makes America strong”.
“Send them back!” the demonstrators shouted. “Illegal immigration is not a good thing! Respect the Constitution, close the border!
One enraged New Yorker told Fox News: “We can’t afford to pay three or four thousand people everything for free. I have children and have had to spend hundreds of dollars to get their school supplies. . . The reason they are here is to steal our votes, our children’s future, my birthright, our great city that I refuse to leave. »
Yeah. He sees through the moralizing troop of assembled democrats. Everyone does it.
Presumably, it was parents’ complaints at the start of the school year that prompted Mayor Adams to issue a dire warning that the migrant crisis would “destroy New York City.”
“We are on the verge of losing the city we knew,” he said, threatening to cut the city’s budget by 15% to deal with the avalanche of migrants who continue to flood into the city. the city.
All AOC and Nadler could say before fleeing in disgrace was that illegal immigrants need work permits.
How does this help? This just puts more sugar on the table and displaces New Yorkers.
The only solution is to close the southern border and end New York’s “right to housing” law, which promises endless resources to anyone who comes here.
The mayor in denial
It’s not like any of this isn’t obvious.
But Mayor Adams acts like it’s a big surprise.
This is the same mayor who opened the welcome mat to illegal immigrants, sending an adapted concierge to greet people off each bus with a bag of treats before they were directed to one of the many historic hotels in Manhattan, where tourists once paid more than $250 per person. night.
Did he think the news wouldn’t get out?
Adams refuses to place blame where it belongs, namely our irresponsible president.
Instead, he ridiculously blames Republicans: “Some crazy guy in Texas decided he was going to bus people to New York.” »
This is a national Democratic Party talking point aimed at fooling its angry voters into believing that the fault lies with Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who sent a few busloads of migrants to blue states to making the political case that his state is being invaded due to Biden’s open border. Strategies.
Abbott’s buses are just a drop in the bucket compared to the daily planeloads of illegal immigrants that the Biden administration has been flying to Westchester Airport in the middle of the night since at least the summer of 2021, plus full buses that arrived on their own. , thanks to free trips paid for by NGOs which are paid by the government.
But the blame game no longer works.
New Yorkers know the truth and feel betrayed.
And why doesn’t AOC, in her best pantsuit, complain at the border about “children in cages”? Hypocritical.
