ADAMS ON IMMIGRATION: 'Cities Should Not Be Carrying the Burden of a National Crisis' [WATCH]

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.12.23

New York City Mayor Eric Adams blasted the Biden White House for its failure to address the border crisis during remarks on Tuesday. Joe and Co. need a better understanding of “basic things” tied to the Big Apple’s migrant crisis, Adams says.

Adams’ remarks come hot on the heels of a recent trip to Washington D.C. to seek help with the Big Apple’s migrant crisis.

“I’m just not seeing the White House and their colleagues up there understanding that we need a decompression strategy. We should be funding this on a national level, we must make sure we allow people to work. You know, basic things,” Adams told reporters at his weekly press conference.

“I’ve been to DC 10 times and each time I laid out a case on why the city — that’s the economic engine of the state and the country — should not be going through this,” he added. “Walking out, I did not see the level of urgency.”

Elsewhere, Adams suggested a recent drop in his approval rating was linked to his administration being burdened by the national asylum seeker ordeal — and that despite the public perception he was doing a good job in City Hall.

“This has been a successful administration that got hit with a national crisis that I don’t know who would have been able to navigate it the way we’ve been able to navigate it,” he said.

“When you’re in the midst of the storm, it’s hard to see.”

It comes after a Quinnipiac poll released last week showed his rating had dropped to a meager 28% — the lowest recorded for a Big Apple mayor by the university since they started surveying voters a quarter century ago.

Of the registered voters polled, 66% disapproved of the mayor’s handling of the migrant crisis.
