During a press conference on Monday, New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) called on Biden to “control the border,” warning that “there is no more room” in the city for border crossers and illegal aliens.
Since the spring of last year, more than 90,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have arrived in NYC. Under Adams’ vast migrant hotel scheme, thousands have been put up for free in luxury hotels like the Roosevelt Hotel, but room has since run out, spurring migrants to flood out onto the city streets.
“We need to control the border. We need to call a state of emergency, and we need to properly fund this national crisis,” Adams said, suggesting that the future for New Yorkers is grim, as there are no signs showing the migrant surge to the city will end anytime soon:
We need help. And it’s not going to get any better. From this moment on it’s downhill. There is no more room. I was at the Roosevelt on Saturday, and I went there on Sunday. They lined up around the block, hurting the businesses there; this is not going to get better. We put buses there for cooling systems, but it is just not sustainable. And I’m just real.
Adams, though, said he did not want New York City to devolve into a state of chaos like other sanctuary cities such as San Francisco, California, and Seattle, Washington, where tent cities have wrecked the quality of life for residents.
“We have to localize this madness. We have to figure out a way of how we don’t have what’s in other municipalities where you have tent cities all over the city,” Adams said.
Well, this is the chaos you get when you demand open borders and you virtue-signal about welcoming everyone into your self-declared “sanctuary city.”
