NYC Mayor Eric Adams Blasts Biden on Immigration – “It’s a Real Embarrassment”
There has been widespread discontent from a variety of political parties, including Republicans, Independents, and Democrats, regarding the immigration policies implemented by the Biden administration. This has been exacerbated by the significant increase in the number of illegal immigrants in cities such as New York and Washington D.C, which have seen a major influx in the past year due to record levels of illegal border crossings in the United States in the past fiscal year.
The situation at the border has been made worse by President Biden’s attempts to repeal Title 42, a pandemic-era order that allows for the expedited deportation of illegal immigrants. This has drawn criticism from New York Mayor Eric Adams, who called the border crisis a “real embarrassment” and urged the President and Congress to take action to address the chaos.
According to Fox News,
New York City Mayor Eric Adams on Tuesday called the migrant crisis that he says is overwhelming the Big Apple a “real embarrassment” on a national level as he claimed that there is “no more room at the inn” in the self-described sanctuary city.
Adams was asked about the migrant crisis that has reached into New York City as tens of thousands of migrants have made their way — including by bus — to the city in recent months.
“It’s a real embarrassment, I believe, on a national level, and we must have an appropriate response. We have had conversations around the issues on migrants for decades. This is a national issue. It must have a national response,” he said on WABC’s “Sid & Friends in the Morning.”
The host, Sid Rosenberg, responded by calling it a “Biden issue” and a “Democrat” issue. “This is a Biden issue, a Democrat issue that now folks like you have to deal with. To be specific and fair, that’s just the truth,” he said.
“Well, when we think about the immigration reform, we’re going to need the help from Congress as well,” Adams replied. “I think the president has an obligation to deal with the immediate concerns. But when we talk about immigration, it is going to take a combination of the executive and the legislative body. We have to address this.”
The solution is a simple one, but getting it implemented is the hard part because of the virtue signaling from the left.
