New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) has asked the New York state to help with providing shelter to asylum seekers that have arrived in the city. In a recent statement, Adams disclosed that they have currently reached their limits and that they would not be able to accommodate all the asylum seekers reaching New York based on their current projections.
This is what led to him requesting emergency mutual aid from the State of New York. As he noted he knows that this aid is meant to be given in “dire emergencies”, but that the city had currently reached its limits as it tried to accommodate the thousands of immigrants that have arrived.
The large influx of immigrants received, has in part been caused by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) who have been using busses and airplanes to transport migrants out of their own states and into Democratic-run cities like New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.
The two governors have noted that this scheme is meant to help showcase the failure of the federal administration in enforcing border control.
Adams estimates that New York City has so far accommodated more than 40,000 asylum-seekers with shelter, food, and resources. He added that there have been 74 emergency shelters that have been opened and that there are four humanitarian relief centers that were created at “breakneck speeds.”
However, the city is still unable to handle the more than 400 migrants who arrive daily. The record arrivals into New York City so far has been 835 in one day.
