Skip to comments.Adams headed to Mexico to discourage migrants from coming to NYC — as Gotham braces for potential record-breaking crush

Mayor Eric Adams is heading to Central and South America this week to convince migrants not to come to the Big Apple — as the city preps for a possible record-breaking surge in new asylum seekers, well-placed sources say.
City Hall announced Hizzoner’s international trip Monday, billing the four-day journey as a chance to foster relations with local leaders in migrant hot spots and learn more about the path of asylum seekers.
The mayor will start his tour south of the border in Mexico City on Wednesday before heading to the nearby town of Puebla — where many Mexican migrants in New York City have traditionally been from — and eventually Quito, the capital of Ecuador.
On his final day, Adams will go to Bogotá, Colombia, and Darién Gap, where many asylum seekers pass through on their way north.
But sources with knowledge of the trip told The Post that its underlying goal is to use local news coverage as a media blitz to talk migrants out of coming to New York City.
he trip comes as the Adams administration braces for potentially record-breaking levels of asylum seekers in the coming weeks, City Hall sources said.
Molly Schaefer, the interim director of the city’s Asylum Seeker Operations, recently sounded the alarm about a possible influx of up to 4,200 in a single week, sources said.
The weekly arrival tally has hovered around 3,000 for the past few months.

Adams needs to declare NYC a law abiding city.
This is a big show now
Send more to New York City
A couple of million or more
Trump gave Obrador a good talking-to and made progress with commitments from Mexico to stem the tide. Biden won’t do that. Why would the president of Mexico talk to a US city mayor? It’s nonsensical.
It is infuriating that these arseholes are trying to re-implement Trump’s strategy and tactics years after Trump showed they work and after they laughed at, derided, and ridiculed Trump. Trump the outsider showed these bastard pols how to do the job.
Meanwhile, we are absolutely overrun with invaders from Mexico and other countries pouring in through Mexico because these idiots simply would not emulate the tactics that Trump demonstrated actually work. All they had to do was keep a steady-as-she-goes approach to the border and energy and all would be well. But, NO...they had to repudiate everything Trump did just out of spite like five year old kids.
I’ve never seen the USA more fouled up that it is today.
Too bad Mexico is only a stop on the way. He needs to get the socialist countries in Central America to respond
Adams better watch out.
Biden and Kamala don’t want him interfering with their border policy.
Besides, talking to the Mexican authorities would mean talking to the Mexican cartels. and they won’t listen to him, since they’ve got many billions more to make with the illegal migrants and the flow of drugs into the U.s..
Keep him there!
And, maybe he can take a few jumbo jets full of illegals, with him.
These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York
I wanna to wake up, in a city that doesn't sleep
And find I'm king of the hill
Top of the heap
These little town blues
Are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
There’s nothing the White Spaniards in charge down there like more than a Black man showing up to tell them what to do. Enjoy the cordiality, Eric.
Be a real shame if the cartel took Adams hostage.
DC is closer, they are the magnet.
tell your rat friends (rinos included) to knock it off, finish the wall and perhaps the problem will fix itself.
More are on their way. They had some real conflicts on the border between two cartels, which one gets to charge those coming into Mexico and moving them to the USA. But they are coming. Bank on that.
only 159 more countries to convince
Illegals, you really want to live in NYC.
They put you up in prime hotels and let you do whatever you want.
Even commit crime, with impunity.
