New York City’s mayor, Eric Adams, said on Monday that America’s national immigration policy is to blame for his city’s migrant crisis.
“The national government must solve this, and the challenges that we are facing, no city should be facing these challenges,” Adams said. “And I kept saying this over and over again. We’re going to start seeing the visualization of the failure of the policy . . . we’re seeing the visual of what a failed national policy is producing.”
The mayor has said before that the federal government should bail New York City out of its illegal immigrant–induced financial crisis.
The state and federal government should shoulder the looming $12 billion bill to “accommodate asylum seekers” in New York, he added in the speech.
New York congresswoman Claudia Tenney said that Democratic politicians should stop encouraging illegal immigration.
Tenney told “Instead of evading accountability, Mayor Adams should support the policies outlined in House Republican’s H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act, and end this crisis.”
Adams should take responsibility for the migrant crisis his city’s policies helped to create, former New York mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa told National Review.
