Migrant Busing Crisis Receives Support from NYC

By January 25, 2023January 31st, 2023No Comments

New York City Mayor, Eric Adams, is reaching out to others for any potential financial assistance in funding the migrant busing crisis going on in Democratic cities. Eric Adams recently flew to El Paso, a border city in Texas, in order to plead with the federal government to send more money and assistance to American communities hosting tens of thousands of migrants fleeing economic and political unrest in Latin America.

The Biden administration recently adopted a new approach to deter illegal border crossings, according to Adams, who said that cities like New York and El Paso were on the front lines of an unprecedented migrant crisis. The majority of the operational and financial burden of housing migrants freed from federal border detention centers is being carried out solely by communities around the United States. This is what led Mayor Adams to declare a state of emergency back in October due to the migrant landings in New York considering the number far outweighed the amount of resources and shelter the city was able to provide.

Mayor Eric Adams emphasizes that national leaders should be doing more to address this issue instead of leaving it up to cities around the United States to deal with it on their own. Cities such as New York, Chicago, Houston, and Los Angeles are being undermined and the people deserve better.
