New York Mayor Eric Adams travelled to the border to view, first hand, what is happening because of the Biden Administration’s abject immigration failures.
On Friday, Adams submitted an emergency aid request for additional funding and called out the administration.
Calling the lack of a federal response to the border crisis “inhumane” and “irresponsible,” New York City Democrat Mayor Eric Adams submitted an emergency aid request to the state on Friday, saying the cost of caring for migrants from the U.S.-Mexico border could soon hit $2 billion.
During an appearance Friday on Caribbean Power Jam Radio, Adams said the massive influx of asylum seekers is pushing city services to the brink and creating difficult budgetary conditions.
“The strain on our infrastructure is immense,” he said. “I cannot tell you how much of an impact this is having on our abilities to provide services for everyday New Yorkers.”
Adams estimated the cost of these services to be between $1.5 billion to $2 billion and cautioned that, in the absence of state aid, the financial strain will be felt in other areas of the city budget.
“We are going to see an impact on every service we have in the city, and that is just inhumane on the part of the national government,” Adams said on the radio show. “It’s irresponsible that we have not had a real national response to what’s happening on our border.”
