New York City has seen an exodus since the summer began.

“People are fleeing the city in droves,” Moon Salahie, owner of Elite Moving & Storing in Yonkers, told the New York Post. “The least movement would be the Park Avenue and Fifth Avenue crowds. Those people don’t have to leave because they have second homes.”

Salahie said the vast majority of people he has provided moving services to since June are moving to the suburbs north or west of the city.

People cite lockdown measures implemented during the coronavirus pandemic as one of the motivations behind residents moving out of the city.

“Before, you can take them out to the park, playground. Now, that’s not even possible,” Fatine Fatri told the paper about her two children. “It was a nightmare.”

Fatri is one of several mothers who say that the city’s rising crime rates, coupled with continued lockdown measures, have made living in the city untenable.

“As a parent, this isn’t the place I once knew. I feel like NYC is disappearing so fast, and no one’s doing anything,” said Allison Eden, a mother of two teenagers. “There’s nowhere for them to go. I don’t want to feel afraid, and I don’t want my children to be scared to go outside.”

Thousands of New Yorkers have moved to Connecticut since the pandemic began, the Hartford Courant reported.

The New York Post reported this weekend that mothers from the wealthy Upper West Side are among those taking part in the exodus.

“In the best of times, NYC is a hard place to live,” one mother and activist against crime, Elizabeth Carr, said. “Now, you have all this other stuff. It’s a question for families … to have to see a guy masturbating on the corner or explain to my kids while I’m buying diapers at Duane Reade why this guy wearing no shoes is collapsed on the floor and they’re doing CPR on him.”

Sen. Mitt Romney predicted President Trump will be reelected this fall despite breaking with the president several times during his first term in office.

“I’m confident that we will keep the majority in the Senate,” Romney said Wednesday, according to Politico reporter Jake Sherman. “And I actually have long predicted the president will be reelected ⁠— I continue to think that’s the case.”

Romney, who ran for president and lost in 2012, has been one of the few Republican senators to criticize Trump for his public remarks, tweets, or policies.

In March 2016, during the Republican presidential primary, Romney famously called Trump a “fraud” and a “phony.”

“His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University,” Romney said that year. “He’s playing members of the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat.”

Earlier this year, Romney was the only Senate Republican to vote to convict Trump on a charge of abuse of power during his impeachment trial, saying his commitment to God motivated him to ” do the right thing” and vote against Trump.

“I will tell my children and their children that I did my duty to the best of my ability, believing that my country expected it of me,” Romney said. “We’re all footnotes at best in the annals of history. But in the most powerful nation on Earth, the nation conceived in liberty and justice, that is distinction enough for any citizen.”

Romney, who previously had been on the receiving end of attacks from Democrats and media pundits, has been lauded by the same people for his bold pushback on the president.

“Sen. Romney reminds us that it is not impossible to do the right thing, it’s just hard,” said Democrat Sen. Brian Schatz, following Romney’s conviction vote. “That putting country over party isn’t just a slogan, it’s our solemn obligation. That individuals who have courage and conviction can change history and have an obligation to try.”

Trump recently mocked Romney after the senator was seen marching with Christian demonstrators in Washington, D.C., protesting racism in America.

Romney said he joined the march “to find a way to end violence and brutality and to make sure that people understand that black lives matter.”

Trump was less than impressed.

“Tremendous sincerity, what a guy,” Trump responded. “Hard to believe, with this kind of political talent, his numbers would ‘tank’ so badly in Utah!”

Romney also said this week that he’ll “ stay quiet” about who he will vote for come November.

More than half of Mexican nationals are not sympathetic to migrants traveling through the country on their journey to the United States and support the deportation of unauthorized persons waiting to gain entry to America, according to a new study.

The study, conducted by the Washington Post and Mexican newspaper Reforma, found “more than 6 in 10 Mexicans say migrants are a burden on their country because they take jobs and benefits that should belong to Mexicans.”

Additionally, more than half of the those same Mexican citizens are in favor of deporting migrants living in the country illegally.

“The Post-Reforma survey finds 7 percent of Mexicans say their country should offer residency to Central American immigrants traveling through Mexico and trying to enter the United States,” the report said. “Another 33 percent support allowing them to stay temporarily while the United States decides whether to admit them. But a 55 percent majority say they should be deported to their home countries.”

Since the beginning of the year, hundreds of thousands of people have been traveling from Central America by route of Mexico in an attempt to gain entry to the U.S. and seek asylum.

Border Patrol officials said they encountered a record 144,000 undocumented immigrants in May alone.

This week, President Trump’s administration moved to tighten restrictions on migrants seeking to enter the U.S.

One of the new mandates requires migrants to apply for asylum in another country before reaching the U.S.

Trump has threatened to close the southern border with Mexico if the country did not do more to curb illegal immigration into the U.S.
