Adams: Hochul ‘Wrong’ for Not Making Other Areas of State Shoulder Migrant Crisis

Adams: Hochul ‘Wrong’ for Not Making Other Areas of State Shoulder Migrant Crisis

August 30, 2023

During a “fireside chat” at New York Law School on Tuesday, NYC Mayor Eric Adams (D) blasted Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) for the way she has dealt with migrants flooding the area.

Adams said, “Gov. Hochul has been a partner on subway safety, on crime, on a host of things, but I think on this issue the governor is wrong,” the New York Post reported. “She’s the governor of the state of New York. New York City is in that state. Every county in this state should be part of this.”

Hochul previously blamed President Biden (D) and demanded his administration take ownership of the mass of asylum seekers crossing the nation’s southern border.

However, “Adams slammed Hochul, saying in a statement following her address that she was ‘abdicating’ her duty as governor to create a statewide response to the crisis and forcing other areas of New York to pitch in,” the Post report said.

Right now, the city is reportedly caring for about 60,000 migrants, but thousands are flooding in every week.

Hochul, however, is enthusiastic about the flood of migrants and believes it can easily be absorbed into the economy:

In a press conference this week, Hochul seemingly spun as a positive the fact that thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens, often with no means to support themselves, are arriving in New York every week as New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) has said the city is in a crisis.

“I can’t tell you how many people have said to me, ‘I need them in my North Country Lake Placid hotel, a restaurant over in Syracuse, a nursing home on Long Island,’” Hochul said. “There are so many jobs that they could be absorbed into our economy so easily.”

Yeah, how’s that been working out for your state and your unemployed citizens, Governor?
