New York City Mayor Eric Adams said on Wednesday that there is absolutely “no more room” for asylum seekers in his city as Republican governors continue to send immigrants by the thousands. Adams spoke to Politico and told them, “We’re at that point,” when referencing his cities inability to take on more migrants. “At the same time, we’re going to continue to do our moral and legal obligation. Whoever comes to the city — you’re not seeing individuals sleeping on the streets with families — because we’re continuing to pivot and shift as needed” he added.

Adams insisted that “the White House must ensure the immediate needs, that cities that are impacted receive the support they deserve.” He specifically wants the federal government to provide $2 billion to the budget of the city as well as relax work requirements for asylum seekers. Biden has ignored these requests which has led Adams to turn to New York  Gov. Kathy Hochul. But Hochul has also ignored these requests and during her State of the State speech on Tuesday she made no mention of the migrant crisis. “I was focusing on my key signature areas that have broad, statewide interest — housing, mental health challenges, child care, and the minimum wage,” the governor said


This past weekend, El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser hosted Adams at the Texas border, where the mayor implored FEMA to respond to the crisis as well. Adams has pointed at other cities who are also suffering due to the migrant influx, like Washington D.C. “Mayor Bowser has made it clear she’s dealing with her own housing crisis To allow and have an influx of migrant seekers is impacting her right here in our nation’s capital,” he said. Adams will meet with other mayors at a conference this week to discuss how cities can help other cities that that are overwhelmed.

When the US elects a Republican President and Republican Congress in 2024, illegal immigrants crossing our borders, the climate change hoax, etc will end!

Mayor Adam’s plea is wrong on multiple levels – primarily that illegals should not be distributed anywhere, but turned around and required to return to Mexico or whatever country they wish to return to. They have no rights here, and biden has no right to allow them into the country – UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!
