On Sunday, the mayor of New York City came to the U.S. city of El Paso, which is located on the border with Mexico. While there, he made the statement that “there is no place in New York” for the busloads of migrants who are being transported to the most populated city in the United States.
Democrat Eric Adams, who was also critical of the administration of Democratic U.S. President Joe Biden, said that “now is the time for the national government to do its duty” about the immigration crisis that is occurring at the southern border of the United States.
It has never happened before, but the mayor of New York City is going to visit a city on the southern border to discuss the problem of immigration.
The states now controlled by the Republican party have been sending busloads full of migrants to New York City and other places farther north. This has contributed to a deterioration of both New York City’s housing shortage as well as its homeless population issue.
Following his statement that the influx of migrants into New York could cost the city as much as $2 billion at a time when the city is already facing a significant budget shortfall, Adams travelled to El Paso. His comments came after he said that the influx of migrants into New York could cost the city as much as $2 billion.
