Border Crisis

ADAMS AGAINST EVERYBODY! NYC Mayor Sues 30 New York Counties for Refusing Migrants

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.08.23

New York City Mayor Eric Adams is suing 30 New York State counties for refusing to house migrants coming into the Big Apple from the southern border; “This lawsuit aims to put an end to this xenophobic bigotry,” he says.

Adams calls the rejection of migrants “unlawful.”

“This lawsuit aims to put an end to this xenophobic bigotry and ensure our state acts as one as we work together to manage this humanitarian crisis fairly and humanely, as we have done from the beginning and as we will continue to do,” Adams said in a statement.

From Fox News:

New York City has been overwhelmed by tens of thousands of migrants pouring into the five boroughs in the past year. The mayor’s office said more than 74,000 asylum-seekers have sought shelter in the city to date — most entering the U.S. from the southern border — with more than 47,200 currently being housed by the City of New York. Hundreds of migrants are arriving daily, with as many as 900 individuals coming to the city in some weeks in May.

The massive influx of migrants has sent the city scrambling to find a place for these people. New York City has opened up more than 160 emergency sites offering temporary shelter, placed migrants in hotels, school gymnasiums and partnered with churches or faith-based organizations to set up shelters in their buildings as well. Adams even suggested that the city pay private homeowners and landlords to house migrants.

With space running out in New York City, Adams declared a state of emergency on May 5 and a “new voluntary program” to transport migrants to other parts of New York State.

“Since this crisis began, New York City has — virtually on its own — stepped up to provide shelter, food, clothing, and other services to asylum-seekers arriving in our city. We are doing our part and will continue to do our part, but we need every locality across the state to do their part as well,” Adams said.

“While many communities have been overwhelmingly supportive and enthusiastic about welcoming these new arrivals to their cities and towns, some elected officials have attempted to build metaphorical walls around their localities with unlawful executive orders,” Adams added.
