Rudy Giuliani had been instrumental in cleaning up New York City during his tenure as its mayor, and when the morning of September 11, 2001, brought death and destruction to Manhattan, he was there immediately to coordinate all he could, taking his job as mayor seriously in words and actions.
When terrorists flew commercial planes into the Twin Towers that morning, they permanently altered New York’s landscape and the souls of all Americans. On that day, there were numerous heroes, and those who gave without delay should not be forgotten.
Giuliani was on the scene for days, inhaling in the noxious dust that ultimately caused the cancer deaths of many survivors and rescuers. As New York commemorated the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 atrocities on American soil, individuals who do not respect our borders appeared in the city.

Vice President Kamala Harris and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, neither of whom support regulating our borders and both of whom are charged with precisely that, were in attendance.
Asked by Newsmax host Greg Kelly for his thoughts on the 22nd anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center, Giuliani said, “You know, today I’m thinking, unfortunately, that our country is in more danger than it was before September 11, largely because of Biden and two of the people that were there today, Harris and Mayorkas.”
Giuliani continued by stating that the apparition of the two Biden administration officials prompted him to depart the ceremony early.
He continued, “It really prompted me and I think Bernie to leave a little bit earlier than we would. It’s hard to be there with them, thinking of the millions and millions of people that have come across the border. We don’t know who they are and all of our improvements in anti-terrorism are intelligence, and intelligence doesn’t work if you don’t know who’s coming in.”
The former mayor summed up the temerity of Harris and Myorkis in their decision to attend the commemorative event.
Giuliani — who was mayor of New York City at the time of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks — went on to condemn Harris’ speech comparing the January 6, 2021 Capitol riots to 9/11 and the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
“That’s an unbelievable insult to the people who lost their lives on September 11th and in Pearl Harbor,” he protested.
Giuliani continued, “We’re not even sure what it was. It certainly wasn’t what it was originally exaggerated to be, you know, four people killed and all of that. No one’s been convicted of insurrection, they like to call it that, meanwhile this was the worst foreign attack on our soil since the war of 1812, I think.”
He concluded, “More people died on September 11 than at Pearl Harbor and people are suffering to this day from it. People are dying from it because of all of the unknown toxic chemicals it released. So it’s just a complete insult.”
The hypocrisy of standing at Ground Zero today with @RudyGiuliani and members of Biden administration:@SecMayorkas has created the most substantial terror threat in US history by intentionally opening borders.
It was sickening to see him standing there today. pic.twitter.com/JImyINzReE

Today, Giuliani launched into Joe Biden who said he was at Ground Zero the day after the attack and he wasn’t. The former mayor of New York City called Biden a fraudster.
Joe Biden said he was at Ground Zero the day after the September 11, 2001 attack.
I was there.
Produce a record or admit you are a liar.
And apologize to those who died, or almost died, or lost love ones, on September 11, 2001.

Monday’s memorial ceremony in Manhattan centered on reciting the names of the deceased and remembering the sacrifices of those who fought that day or were victims of the sudden attack on American soil. In addition to Giuliani, Harris, and Myorkis, presidential candidate Ron DeSantis was present at the event.
New York Governor Kathy Hochul, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, New York Mayor Eric Adams, and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg were also in attendance. President Biden did not attend, choosing to be in Alaska as far away in the United States as feasible from the memorial ceremonies.
In the past week, New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, has made headlines by claiming that the influx of migrants to the city, which reportedly numbers around 110 thousand, “will destroy New York City.”
New York City has declared itself a sanctuary city and stated that it welcomes the influx of unlawful immigrants. The Biden administration bused or flew migrants to states that explicitly declared they would not tolerate illegal immigrants crossing their borders. These states, including Texas, arranged for migrants arriving in their state to be bused to states that claimed to embrace them.
Adams accuses Texas Governor Greg Abbott for sending the migrants to New York, despite the fact that the city received and sheltered them at the expense of taxpayers. Now Adams is complaining and looking for someone to blame.
“Every service in this city is going to be impacted,” Adams stated this last week. “All of us. Its going to come to your neighborhoods. All of us are going to be impacted by this. I said it last yeare when we had 15,000. I’m telling you now with 110,000, The city we knew we’re about to lose.”
The city that Guiliani resurrected, which endured this terrible tragedy, is in perilous circumstances due to illegal immigrants welcomed by Democrats. It makes sense that he departed the ceremony.
