NYC’s Democrat Mayor Demands Biden Declare Emergency at Southern Border

New York City’s Democrat Mayor Eric Adams has demanded that President Joe Biden declare a national emergency over the flood of illegal crossings at the Southern Border.

In a statement regarding the influx of illegal aliens in his city, Adams claimed that the issue will cost NYC alone a staggering $12 billion over the next three years.

Adams said that the city is now running out of money and personnel to house tens of thousands of migrants that have arrived in New York.

In response, Adams is demanding that the Biden administration declare a national emergency.

Adams made his plea in a media briefing on Wednesday.

The mayor told reporters about the state of the city’s finances and how the continuous influx of migrants is using up city services.

“So we continue to do an average of twenty-five hundred a week, five thousand every two weeks, ten thousand a month,” Adams said.

“You don’t have to be a mathematician to understand what this is doing to our city.”

There are currently about 57,300 migrants in the city’s taxpayer-funded care.

It is estimated that as many as 100,000 will need services by June 2025.

Adams wants the federal government to reimburse the city for some of the massive costs of migrants who are illegally entering the country due to Biden’s border crisis.

The mayor also wants the Biden admin to make it easier for migrants to gain legal employment so that the financial burden is lessened.

“The city is running out of money, appropriate space, and personnel,” Adams said.

He added that the federal government needed a “decompression strategy” to ensure that migrants are spread out across the country fairly and equally.

The news comes as Adams is having to fend off increasingly outraged residents.

New Yorkers are protesting against migrants taking up city spaces and using up taxpayer-funded services.

Activist Power Malu, who is helping organize migrants in NYC, told WABC-TV that providing housing for the homeless could help the migrant crisis.

“I think one of the solutions that’s not being talked about is moving the unhoused community that have been hostages in the shelter system for years into dignified housing, and that will free up space,” Malu said.

Some critics online noted that the comments from Adams appeared to prove Republicans right about Democrat politicians not taking the immigration crisis seriously.

Democrats have been changing their tune after the problem was shipped to their doorsteps.
