Eric Adams on the immigration crisis: "This issue will destroy New York City"

The Democratic mayor said they have received about 10,000 migrants a month: "I don't see an ending to this."

New York's Democratic mayor, Eric Adams, is struggling with the immigration crisis. As he said at a meeting held at City Hall located on the Upper West Side, the city is in serious trouble with the immigration crisis, going so far as to claim that the problem "will destroy New York":

In the video, which went viral in a few hours, Adams explodes and assures that New York received an average of 10,000 migrants a month and in his own words said, "I don't see an ending to this" since the city does not receive sufficient support or funding from the federal government:

Let me tell you something, New Yorkers. Never in my life have I had a problem that I did not see an ending to. I don't see an ending to this. This issue will destroy New York City. We're getting 10,000 migrants a month. Now we're getting people from all over the globe that have made their minds up that they're going to come through the southern part of the border and come to New York City.

The federal government, guilty of the immigration crisis in New York

The statements come in the midst of the strong immigration crisis that New York City is experiencing. And that also worries Governor Kathy Hochul who, recently, joined Mayor Adams and blamed the Biden Administration for the situation that NYC is going through: "This crisis originated in the federal government and must be resolved by the federal government."

According to the governor, a possible solution to this problem would be to expedite the authorization so that migrants can work and support themselves, but the Department of Labor continually passes the responsibility to Congress.

New Yorkers are also not satisfied with the management of this immigration crisis. According to a survey conducted by Siena College, 8 out of 10 New Yorkers see this situation as a "serious problem" for the state, while 54% see it as something "very serious."
