Democratic mayors lash out at Biden over migrant crisis

 December 27, 2023

President Joe Biden is now facing angry denunciations from members of his own party over the ongoing migrant crisis

According to Mediate, New York City Mayor Eric Adams slammed the president during a press conference on Tuesday for not providing adequate assistance.

Mayor says Biden's lack of action "baffles" him

Adams complained of having made "ten trips to Washington, D.C. asking and pleading for help" from the administration, all to no effect.

What's more, the mayor added that he has not been able to meet with Biden since last year despite his city facing an influx of illegal migrants.

"It baffles me. You know, New York City is the economic engine of the state and the country," the Democratic politician continued.

Chicago mayor says "entire country is now at stake"

Adams went on to point out that New York's difficulties are not unique, saying, "I am really pleased that we are now getting a chorus of other cities that are joining us, who are now part of our coalition."

"That coalition is going to continue to grow because these cities deserve better. I’m not only talking about New York. Chicago, Los Angeles, El Paso, Brownsville, you know, all these cities. Houston. You know, cities should not be handling national problems," the mayor stressed.

"The federal government said to New York City, 'We’re not going to do our job, you do our job. You take care of 4,000 people a week, Eric, you and your team,'" Adams later said.

"What’s fascinating is that those who should have been helping us in government every step of the way, just critiqued us. I’m not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel from the federal government," the mayor concluded.

Adam's remarks came just two days before Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson warned that the "entire country is now at stake" unless the Biden administration provides more resources to deal with migrants.

Local politicians slam Adams for busing migrants into their areas

Meanwhile, Fox News reported on Wednesday that Adams' administration is bussing migrants into areas outside the city, something which has resulted in "fury" from local leaders.

They include Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus, who recalled a recent incident in which "two buses of migrants, with New York City police escorts, arrived at an Orange County hotel."

What's more, Albany County Executive Daniel McCoy complained that New York City did not provide "adequate warning" before sending busloads of migrants, adding, "It angered everybody."

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
