The US-Mexico border crisis persists as a surge of migrants overwhelms authorities and cities.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has transported over 80,000 migrants to various US cities, straining local economies and services.

Mayors expressed concerns about the financial impact and capacity of their cities to handle the influx. (Trending: Trump Releases Must-See TV Ad Ahead of 2024)

“The international crisis that we are experiencing right now is being subsidized by local economies,” Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson said.

“That is not sustainable, and that’s why we need Congress to actually have appropriations to make sure that what refugees from Ukraine receive, we have to ask … why aren’t those same support services being provided for individuals who are coming from the continent of Africa and Central and South America?”

“This national crisis is impacting – and it has the potential to destablize – the financial obligations that we have in our cities,” New York City Mayor Eric Adams said.

“Every agency and delivery of service in my city is going to be drastically impacted by the actions of picking up the tab of $5 billion this fiscal year, $12 billion of three years,” Adams said.

Abbott’s office on the other hand, said “the busing mission is providing much-needed relief to our overwhelmed border communities.”

“President Biden is committed to addressing this problem, that’s why he submitted a supplemental funding request to Congress which includes additional resources to secure the border with more law enforcement, more grant funding for jurisdictions hosting migrants, and funding to accelerate the processing of work permits for eligible noncitizens,” a White House spokesperson stated.

The federal government is seeking additional funding to address the crisis, as legal disputes between the Biden administration and Texas further escalate the situation.

“Accordingly, the United States intends to file suit to enjoin the enforcement of SB 4 unless Texas agrees to refrain from enforcing the law,” a letter from the DOJ read.

“The United States is committed to both securing the border and ensuring the processing of noncitizens consistent with the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). SB 4 is contrary to these goals.”

“The Biden Admin. not only refuses to enforce current U.S. immigration laws, they now want to stop Texas from enforcing laws against illegal immigration,” Abbott wrote.

“I’ve never seen such hostility to the rule of law in America.”

Despite recent reductions in border crossings, the US and Mexico are cooperating to address migration issues, focusing on enforcement, root causes, and economic ties.
