New York City Mayor Eric Adams faced a lawsuit from the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) for budget cuts to the Education Department, citing the impact on teachers and students.

The lawsuit argues that the cuts, made to address illegal immigration, ironically affect the Education Department’s need for more funding due to an increase in migrant children attending city schools.

The budget cuts, totaling $547 million, are expected to reduce preschool seats and summer program hours. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

Additionally, the lawsuit accuses Adams’ administration of exaggerating the cost of illegal immigration and failing to provide a comprehensive plan.

According to the lawsuit, “The stated reason for the cuts is to cover the cost of providing services to the influx of migrants now seeking asylum in New York City.”

“Yet, of the more than 110,000 asylum seekers who recently landed in New York City, at least 20,000 are children currently enrolled in public schools,” continues the filing.

Projecting, “Approximately 33,000 migrant students have enrolled in public schools since the summer of 2022.”

“Due, in large part, to this influx of migrant students, total enrollment in the City school district rose by over 8,000 students,” concluded the plaintiff.

“Since at least January of 2023, when the influx of migrants had, to that point, cost the City some $300 million, the Mayor has failed to provide a cohesive plan or vision for the asylum seekers, instead singularly focusing on additional state and federal aid and on budgetary cuts in the absence of such funding,” the lawsuit adds.

Adams responded, acknowledging the disagreement with the unions and the potential for legal action.

Mayor Adams said, “From time to time friends disagree.”

Adding, “Sometimes that ends up in a boardroom and sometimes that ends up in a courtroom.”
