New York City Mayor Eric Adams is once again complaining that his rat-infested, garbage-strewn metropolis is being overrun by undocumented migrants who're expecting to be met with open arms, housing, and a job, whining that "there is no more room" in the blue town that once boasted it was "open" to all.
Just not, apparently, illegal aliens, who Adams has claimed should be welcomed with open arms...and then, evidently, sent anywhere else but his neighborhood.
"Our cities are being undermined. We don't deserve this. Migrants don't deserve this and the people who live in the cities don't deserve this...There is no more room in New York," Adams said during a press conference Sunday in El Paso, where as many as 2,500 border crossers have been apprehended per day since President Joe Biden's open-border policies triggered a deluge of illegal immigration along the Southwest U.S. border.
Adams added that about 3,100 migrants have been bussed from Texas to New York City by Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, including 800 who arrived in a single day, setting "a record in our city."

The relatively small dump of migrants into the Big Apple - which amounts to less than El Paso processes in any 48-hour window - has already maxed out the city's already strained homeless shelters and forced city officials and charities to begin housing new arrivals in hotels. Adams complained that migrants are getting off busses and expecting to find housing, resources, and jobs - things the city can't offer them, and a price tag the locals can't absorb.
"We welcome those the city doesn’t have to have in their care system," Adams said. “But that should not come at the price tag of those New Yorkers.”
Hilariously, Adams met with a group of migrants during his trip, telling the cheering crowd that he would fight for their ability to live and work in the United States and "experience the American dream.
Just, you know, experience it somewhere other than Adam's own backyard.
