Dem Mayor Urges Wealthy Residents To Step Up As City Crumbles

via FOX 5 New York

New York City Mayor Eric Adams is seeking financial support from the city’s wealthiest residents in order to address the financial strain caused by the ongoing migrant crisis.

The city has announced significant budget cuts, including reducing police numbers and slashing budgets in education and sanitation.

“This is a moment where it’s an all hands on deck moment,” Adams said.

“The way it goes, New York goes, America goes, but I’m going to need you more than ever to support many of these organizations like PAL, Robin Hood Foundation, and others,” he added.

“A moment where our philanthropic interests must align with some of the gaps and services that we are seeing today.”

With over 130,000 migrants arriving in the city since last year, Mayor Adams warns that the crisis could “destroy” the city.

The budget cuts have drawn criticism from the city’s teachers and police unions.

Additionally, liberal jurisdictions, including New York City, are calling for additional federal assistance to manage the influx of migrants.

“This is truly a disaster for every New Yorker who cares about safe streets,” police union President Patrick Hendry stated.

“Cops are already stretched to our breaking point, and these cuts will return us to staffing levels we haven’t seen since the crime epidemic of the ‘80s and ‘90s.”

“We cannot go back there. We need every level of government to work together to find a way to support police officers and protect New York City’s thirty years of public safety progress,” he said.

The Biden administration has allocated over $770 million to support communities taking in migrants and has requested an additional $14 billion in emergency funding for border operations.

Despite these efforts, the crisis at the border persists, with over 249,000 migrant encounters in October and an average of over 1,000 detected gotaways per day since the beginning of the fiscal year.
