New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced this week that the Big Apple may have to cut services for taxpayers in order to cover the cost of the city’s migrant crisis.
The budget cuts will even affect the NYPD.
From The New York Post:
The axing of the new recruits…will decimate an already strained department that has seen massive losses since the COVID-19 pandemic, sources said.
“That’s the biggest one,” one source told The Post of the looming NYPD cuts.
The pending academy freeze comes as an already-struggling NYPD battle to replace the nearly 3,000 uniformed officers who have retired and quit since 2019 – and as overall crime is yet to drop after surging 30% during Adams’ first year in office.
“In recent months, our administration has delivered for you over and over again,” Adams starts out in a video message. “But for months, you’ve heard me talk about the fiscal challenges our city is facing as the cost of the asylum seeker humanitarian crisis has skyrocketed —putting great strain on our budget.”
“We will be forced to make some tough choices,” Adams says.

SANCTUARY CITY UPDATE:
Services for taxpayers in NY will be cut drastically in order to pay for illegals.
These budget cuts reduce the number of police officers and reduce spending on education by $1 billion.
More on the way, Mayor Adams adds.
