New York City Mayor Eric Adams on Sunday said the influx of tens of thousands of migrants will bring a "financial tsunami" as departments across the board are forced to slash budgets to accommodate the new arrivals.
The mayor’s dire warning came during an appearance on PIX 11’s "PIX on Politics" days after he predicted that the crisis "will destroy New York City."
Adams said it was his job as mayor, to be honest and transparent with New Yorkers about the reality of the crisis they are facing.
"We are about to experience a financial … tsunami that I don’t think the city has ever experienced," Adams said. "Every service in this city is going to be impacted from child service to our seniors to housing. Everything will be impacted.
He warned that women and children may soon have to share spaces with single men, and public safety could be threatened, alluding to a brawl that broke out at a migrant shelter in Brooklyn Thursday morning.
Responding to criticism that his words were deemed "reckless," Mayor Adams said the reality on the ground "was not an academic exercise."
"This is not a utopia. New York City cannot manage 10,000 people a month with no end in sight," he said. "That can’t happen, and that is going to undermine this entire city."
The mayor further warned that every city department will likely see budget cuts to address the anticipated $12 billion price tag of the migrant crisis.
Several major U.S. cities have struggled with an influx of many thousands of asylum seekers who have filled up homeless shelters after entering the U.S. New York City's shelter system has been especially overwhelmed.

All this bitching and never once does he call for Biden to stop the insanity that is driving this. Jerk!
He certainly was happy to let Texas go down the tubes.
How many times have we been told that illegals are a net plus for the economy? NYC should be rolling in the dough.
They’ve mismanaged and bloated government at every level, the counties, the cities, states, and most of all the epic, ever growing all consuming behemoth, the federal government.
This means he invited everyone to the party, but he doesn’t want to pay for it now.
I love when voters get what they voted for.
“Bring us your huddled masses....and dump them on someone elses doorstep. NIMBY!
Hypocrite oath for elected democrats.
And Adams is putting the ball on the tee to ask the federal government to bail out NYC.
Biden will go along with it.
And House and Senate RINOs will most likely go along with it.
I hope so.
“Give me your hungry, your tired, your poor, I’ll piss on ‘em”
That’s what the statue of bigotry says
Your poor huddled masses, let’s club ‘em to death
And get it over with and just dump ‘em on the boulevard

Just remember, Mr Mayor, Martha’s Vineyard can’t even handle 50 of these GUESTS.

Cry me a river, hypocrite mayor!
What do you think cities and town in TX and AZ have been having to do, all of these years, with the ‘influx’??
Time to do YOUR share...that you voted and asked for.
We’ve all been paying for this invasion for over 50 years. Hundreds of billions in taxes to the point their open border policies choked off many of our cites, and other regions of this country.
We could pretty much secure our border in 3 weeks. We’ve got nothing but lip service and lies for 50 years. One big con job. They never had any intention of securing the border.
Adams sounds like a racist xenophobe...
All he wants out of it is more free money to pass out to his cronies.
Sanctuary city. Remember that? You flaming leftards?
Voters, or just liberals who actually voted for it versus those who didn’t but had their votes stolen?
This is hysterical! Only 100,000 migrants and this weakling is screaming for help. What do these morons think the border states have been dealing with?
Millions of migrants have bled us dry for years, held back our children so their kids can get an education, free breakfast free lunch on the back of the taxpayers.
