NYC Mayor Begs For Funds, Declares 'State Of Emergency' As Illegals Flood The Shelters
Kinda ironic that New York City mayor Eric Adams criticized the southern border states for complaining about the financial burden they have suffered under Biden's open border policies. His city has only dealt with the issue for a few months and already he's screaming for help from the White House.
More than 17,000 migrants have been bused to the city since the spring, a small fraction of the migrant encounters at the border over that timeframe. Fox News cameras at the Port Authority transportation terminal filmed eight buses arriving Friday, after nine arrived Thursday.
Adams blames the border states for his city's influx and calls it a 'political' crisis. He also claims that his state is sheltering more of the burden than any other state...
"Today I am declaring a state of emergency in the city of New York and issuing an executive order. This executive order will formally direct all relevant agencies to coordinate their efforts to construct the humanitarian relief centers. We are also suspending certain land use requirements to expedite this process. New York City has already done more than nearly any other city to support this influx of asylum seekers and we cannot deprive long-time New Yorkers of support and services, even as we address the needs of these new arrivals. It's not sustainable and it is not right.
If our city had had coordination or even just cooperation from any of the states sending buses or more support from our partners, then maybe we could have budgeted, staffed and allocated resources for these asylum seekers, but we didn't get the support and information we asked for and now New York City is being forced to bear far more than its share of this national crisis caused by political motivation."
I'm sure that slamming the border states (who happen to most be Republican ran) wins Adams some brownie points with the Biden mob, but you just know deep down, Adams realizes how much he looks like a clown. This is the same man who criticized other states for declaring a crisis.
