New York Mayor Eric Adams traveled to the border to see firsthand what’s happening with the Biden administration’s abysmal immigration failures.
On Friday, Adams submitted an emergency aid request for additional funding and called the administration.
Calling the lack of a federal response to the border crisis “inhumane” and “irresponsible,” New York City Democrat Mayor Eric Adams submitted an emergency aid request to the state on Friday, saying the cost of caring for migrants from the US-Mexico border could soon reach $2 billion.

During a Friday appearance on Caribbean Power Jam radio, Adams said the massive influx of asylum seekers is pushing city services to the brink and creating difficult budget conditions.
“The pressure on our infrastructure is immense,” he said. “I can’t tell you how much this will affect our ability to provide services to everyday New Yorkers.”
Adams estimated the cost of these services at $1.5 billion to $2 billion and warned that in the absence of state aid, other areas of the city’s budget could feel the financial strain.
“We’re going to see an impact on every service we have in the city, and it’s just inhumane on the part of the national government,” Adams said on the radio show. “It’s irresponsible that we don’t have a real national response to what’s happening on our borders.”
