New York Mayor Rips Biden: ‘The City Is Being Destroyed by the Migrant Crisis’

New York City’s Democrat Mayor Eric Adams has doomed President Joe Biden during a panel discussion hosted by the African American Mayors Association.

The mayor warned that Biden’s migrant crisis is destroying New York.

Adams said to the stunned audience: “The city is being destroyed by the migrant crisis.

“And none of my folks came to Washington D.C. to fight for the resources that’s going to undermine every agency in our city.

“If you removed the $4.2 billion dollars that have been dropped into my city because of a mismanaged asylum seeker issue, you would have probably witnessed one of the greatest fiscal turnarounds in the history of New York City.”

Adams said Wednesday: “The national government has turned its back on New York City.

“Every service in this city is going to be impacted by the asylum seeker crisis.

Political consultant Hank Sheinkopf said: “He’s trying to throw the weight off him onto the President, whom he’s criticized before, and it’s very unlikely that big city mayors or the federal officials want to join him.

“They cannot criticize an incumbent president, which is what Adams has done this week.

“They’re thinking: You never come back from attacking the president of your own party.”

City Hall has applied for $654 million in FEMA grant money to plug the city’s budget hole, but a decision won’t be handed down until May 31.

The city has spent $817 million between July 2022 and March, according to the Office of Budget and Management. 

…The latest figures from City Hall show that 34,800 asylum seekers are currently being housed in 104 emergency shelters and eight Humanitarian Emergency Response and Relief Centers (HERRCs). More than 56,000 have filtered through the Big Apple within the last year.

According to Fox News:

In a memo from the New York City Office of Management, reported by the New York Post, the city will spend an estimated $4.2 billion on costs related to migrants and asylum seekers that would be spent through June 30, 2023, and the end of fiscal year 2024.

According to the internal city memo, Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul’s plan would reimburse the city for up to $1 billion in migrant aid, which only covers 29% of expected shelter costs.
