Mayor Eric Adams warned that the cost of the ongoing migrant crisis will hurt low-income New Yorkers as he’s forced to dip into the city coffers and address the disaster without more federal or state help.
Adams made the dire warning during an interview with Rev. Al Sharpton about a week after he said all NYC agencies may have to slash up to 15% from their budgets by springtime to cover the expenses tied to the crisis.
The Democrat said the city has already spent $2 billion and is projected to spend $5 billion to care for and house asylum seekers pouring into the Biggle Apple.
“That money is going to come from somewhere… If we don’t receive help from the federal government and additional help from the state government, then this is going to come from somewhere,” Adams said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation.” “And it’s going to hurt low-income New Yorkers.”

Maybe don’t house them in the top hotels? How about working your contacts in D.C. to shut the border?
The migrants are supposed to be in red states.
And maybe they (low income voters) should never have voted for you and your socialist policies.
Elections have consequences.
These are the bicoastal elite finally feeling the pinch of their own politics - will they see the light and rescind their immigration policies? Not a chance. They’ll pick your pocket first, because they can.
If President Trump were in office, as he should have been:
1. The crises never would have happened.
2. States which run up unsustainable debts would be allowed to go bankrupt, as a caution to others.
Please not. This is properly called class warfare. Promise both sides an potential solution, to remain in power politically. Class warfare.
When they're busy fighting each other, there'll be little time and attention to fight the "let's you and them fight" crowd. Democrats.
How’s that “Sanctuary City” nonsense working out for you?
Hey Mayor Adams there are trainloads coming to your town.
Better watch out, better not sigh, you voted for this and I hope it makes you cry.
Abbot needs to send another 200 busloads and drop them right in front of Gracie Mansion.
embrace the suck Adams!
Slow learner, illegal immigration and high legal immigration has always hurt lower income Americans and some Americans in higher income brackets. That’s just many elites want, plus millions of new Democrat voters.
Tell your buddy Biden to close the southern border and start departing people who shouldn’t be here, Eric.
There’s nothing else we can do about it. 🤷🏻♀️
Tell Adams there are train loads more coming
Democrats want them to remain low or no income. It’s purposeful.
The inarticulate mayor needs to be more sensitve to the cultural needs of Muslim illegals by installing foot washing stations and bidets in bathrooms before worrying about the needs of the low-income minorities that selected him as their leader.
