A recent poll from the Sienna College Research Institute reveals that 75% of New York Democrats consider the migrant crisis in the state a significant issue.
New York City, which has seen a substantial influx of over 130,000 migrants, is particularly affected.
Mayor Eric Adams has expressed grave concerns, warning that the crisis could “destroy” the city. (Trending: Biden Baffles Thanksgiving Guests With Bizarre Joke)
“Let me tell you something, New Yorkers,” Adams began.
“Never in my life have I had a problem that I did not see an ending to.”
“I don’t see an ending to this. I don’t see an ending to this.”
“This issue will destroy New York City. Destroy New York City.”
“We’re getting 10,000 migrants a month.”
Adams has urged wealthy individuals to contribute financially to help address the crisis and called for more federal support.
“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,” Adam later said.
“A moment where our philanthropic interests must align with some of the gaps and services that we are seeing today.”
The city has announced budget cuts, including reducing police numbers and slashing education and sanitation budgets.
Adams has also supported noncitizens voting in elections, a law that remains in legal limbo despite his ongoing backing.
