The Issue: Mayor Adams’ declare that migrants can’t be housed at Gracie Mansion on account of “authorized points.”
So, Mayor Adams’ plan to accommodate unlawful immigrants at Gracie Mansion fell aside (“No roomies for Adams in spite of everything,” June 16). No shock there.
Adams brushes off this newest fiasco by saying: “Good generals lead from the entrance.”
Well, good generals obtain victories, a outcome that appears to elude Adams at each flip.
In the phrases of a real basic, George S. Patton Jr.: “Wars aren’t gained by combating battles; wars are gained by selecting battles.”
Adams constantly chooses the fallacious battles and achieves little, whereas expending big sources — not the mark of a reliable basic. Results, not phrases, matter.
Does the boss of the Adams household actually anticipate us to imagine that he would enable an “asylum household” to reside in Gracie Mansion (which belongs to the taxpayers)?
Would they’ve needed to move by means of steel detectors, as our high-school college students do? How a couple of background test and a drug check? Adams would wish a whole precinct to guard him.
Seriously? One or two households in Gracie Mansion would make an amazing “Saturday Night Live” skit for TV.
The day when the variety of unlawful immigrants surpasses the variety of authorized residents in New York City appears to be arriving.
How lengthy can the federal government, in any respect ranges, maintain these monumental intrusions? More necessary, what’s to develop into of those tens of millions of individuals?
On the opposite hand, I think about that sure fields of employment, resembling agriculture, are enthusiastic concerning the persevering with arrivals.

It was very good of Mayor Adams to supply Gracie Manson as an answer to accommodate unlawful migrants.
Instead of providing the “folks’s home” at taxpayers expense, he ought to provide up one in every of his private properties as a present of actual management.
But as they are saying, speak is reasonable.
The Issue: A California scholar’s criticism of Israel throughout her graduation speech.
Another antisemitic rant in opposition to the Jewish folks by a graduating scholar, Jana Abulaban, this one from El Camino College in California (“Anti-Israel rant at Calif. faculty, too,” June 15).
Fatima Mousa Mohammed, who graduated from CUNY legislation college, additionally just lately made her derogatory remarks towards the Jewish folks.
I ponder if this would be the new regular now, the place college students who graduate from faculty make statements like this.
What’s much more disturbing is that the folks in attendance applauded.
This is completely unacceptable in our society at this time. We don’t want any extra hate, particularly in graduation speeches.
At many graduations within the United States, graduates are subjected to hate-filled, antisemitic and anti-Israel graduation speeches.
They get away with it with barely a reprimand from the administration of those establishments.
Jews and Israel have all the time been a simple goal, and evidently loads of haters are taking goal observe.
