New York governor quotes 'philosopher Taylor Swift' in state of the state address, does not mention illegal immigration crisis

"She reminds us that everybody here was somebody else before."

Libby Emmons Brooklyn NY
During her State of the State address to kick off 2024, New York Governor Kathy Hochul quoted pop star Taylor Swift. In so doing, she said she would be quoting "philosopher Taylor Swift." Hochul did not mention the illegal immigration crisis threatening ruination on the state's economic engine, New York City.

"Quoting the philosopher Taylor Swift," she said, "she reminds us that everybody here was somebody else before. And although people might live fundamentally different lives, they still stand side-by-side on the subway platform, or sit at the counter, the diner, upstate or Long Island, united as New Yorkers. We all want our great state to succeed."

They are the same subway platforms that seen stabbings, attempted rapes, robberies, homeless men sleeping with rats under their blankets, and people being shoved onto train tracks. Those New York moments do not appear in Taylor Swift's songs.

As for the "migrants," over 100,000 of whom have flooded into the city in 2023 alone, she said her budget would discuss "caring" for them. There was no room for that conversation in her speech on the future of New York. The illegal immigration crisis was also not mentioned in her 181 tome addressing priorities for 2024. 

Her speech came on the same day that students at Brooklyn's James Madison High School were displaced, sent home to do virtual learning, so that illegal immigrants could be housed in the school instead.

As to her plans for illegal immigrants in the city, Hochul's State of the State document gives some indication of what she will be using her budget to do. "Governor Hochul is launching a new, multi-pronged effort to ensure New York’s immigrant communities have access to the tools and resources to realize their full entrepreneurial and economic potential," that document reads. In other words, more money for more resources for more illegal immigrants as they flood into the city due to Biden's open border policies.
