New York City Mayor Demands Migrants be Shipped to Rural Towns and Suburbs

Eric Adams, the Democratic mayor of New York City, has a fresh idea for handling border crossings that entails the federal government reportedly distributing the migrants all across the country.

Adams stated during a Sunday interview on CBS’s “Face The Nation” that the federal government should do more to help migrants find other places to live rather than burdening one community with an influx of people.

“We have 108,000 cities, villages, towns. If everyone takes a small portion of that, and if it’s coordinated at the border, to ensure that those who are coming here to this country in a lawful manner is actually moved throughout the entire country, it is not a burden on one city.” Adams said.

According to him, the $30 million the federal government has provided to New York City is insufficient to address the widespread issue, according to host Margaret Brennan.

Adams stated that more than 70,000 asylum seekers had been housed in NYC, and that 42,000 of them are currently being cared for.

Adams has started busing migrants to other counties in an effort to lessen the severity of the problem in New York City.

Adams promised New Yorkers that, if elected, his government will remain a sanctuary city in his mayoral campaign.
