Eric Adams blasts illegal migrant influx into New York City as 'not sustainable'
While attention is focused on inflation and whether Vladimir Putin would use nuclear weapons on us, the ongoing crisis of open borders continues, with Joe Biden & Co. leaving the gate open.
According to New York's mayor, Eric Adams, the situation is not an outrage or violation of U.S. principles of rule of law, but, to use a favorite leftist phrase, "not sustainable."
NEW YORK (AP) — New York City's mayor declared a state of emergency on Friday over the thousands of migrants being sent from southern border states since the spring, saying the demand being put on the city to provide housing and other assistance is "not sustainable."
"A city recovering from an ongoing global pandemic is being overwhelmed by a humanitarian crisis made by human hands," Mayor Eric Adams said. "We are at the edge of the precipice. ... We need help. And we need it now."
By the end of its fiscal year, Adams said the city expected to spend $1 billion helping the new arrivals, many of whom are heavily reliant on government aid because federal law prohibits them from working in the U.S.
Adams, a Democrat, said the new arrivals are welcome in the city. And he spoke with pride of New York City's history as a landing spot for new immigrants.
He called for state and federal financial aid, federal legislation that would allow asylum seekers to legally work sooner, and federal plans to fairly distribute asylum seekers throughout the country "to ensure everyone is doing their part."
