New York City Mayor Eric Adams expressed urgency about the migrant crisis, stating that the city is running out of room and resources.

Due to sanctuary city policies, the city is struggling to house everyone and is unable to hand repeat offender migrants over to I.C.E.

Adams emphasized that the city’s resources are strained and that they are facing the possibility of people sleeping on the streets.

“Our hearts are endless, but our resources are not,” Adams said. “It’s not like New York is not saying we are not a city of immigrants. We are. We have a rich history of immigrants, but we can’t take the global problem and it become our problem. That is unfair to New Yorkers, and is unfair to migrants.”

He also mentioned that he does not have the authority to close the front door, even for repeat criminal behavior, and that there are legal challenges to the right to shelter rule.

“We’re not just saying we’re out of room as a soundbite. We’re out of room, literally. People are going to be eventually sleeping on the streets,” he said.

“What would it take for you to close the front door?” Adams was asked.

“The law states that we cannot notify I.C.E. I cannot break the law and enforce the law. I can’t deport. I can’t stop people from coming in, repeated criminal behavior, I can’t report to I.C.E. for deportation. So there’s certain things I can’t do,” Adams said.

The migrant crisis is having crippling effects on the city, with resources stretched thin and violent altercations with NYPD officers.

The iconic Roosevelt Hotel has become a relief center for migrants, providing food, vaccinations, and caseworker meetings.
