Mayor Eric Adams Says Illegal Immigration Will ‘Destroy’ New York City

Democratic New York City Mayor Eric Adams said illegal immigration will “destroy” New York City.

“Let me tell you something New Yorkers: 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,” he said during a town hall.

“One time we were just getting Venezuela, now we’re getting Ecuador, now we’re getting Russian-speaking coming through Mexico, now we’re getting Western Africa, now we’re getting people from all over the globe have made their minds up that they’re going to come through the southern part of the border and come into New York City.

“And everyone is saying, ‘It’s New York City’s problem.’ Every community in this city is going to be impacted. We have a $12 billion deficit that we’re going to have to cut every service in this city is going to be impacted. All of us.”

Adams added that problems from illegal immigration are “going to come to your neighborhoods. All of us are going to be impacted by this.”

“I said it last year when we had 15,000. I’m telling you now with 110,000. The city we knew, we’re about to lose,” he noted.

Reporting from Breitbart:

The remarks come as New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has effectively cheered on illegal immigration to the region, suggesting repeatedly that it is a boon for employers who are looking to hire foreign workers.


Hochul, along with her corporate donors, is also lobbying the Biden administration for a federal bailout that would have American taxpayers subsidize housing, healthcare, and public transit for border crossers and illegal aliens in New York.
