New York City is on the verge of collapsing as it struggles to support the influx of tens of thousands of migrants arriving in the city each month as a result of Joe Biden’s wide-open Southern border.
During a town hall meeting on the Upper West Side, New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) issued a dire warning about Joe Biden’s ongoing migrant crisis, stating, “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. This issue will destroy New York City. Destroy New York City,” and “The city we knew… we’re about to lose.”
Adams revealed that the city has been providing assistance to 110,000 “asylum seekers” who have arrived since April 2022, and it continues to accept an additional 10,000 illegals each month, with migrants arriving from various parts of the world through the wide-open Southern border.

More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the last year, now arriving at an average rate of 2,400 a week, according to the Adams administration. The ongoing crisis began in part when governors from southern states started sending asylum seekers to major northern U.S. cities, largely run by Democrats. Now, nearly 60,000 migrants are in the city’s shelter system, officials said.
Two buses arrived at Port Authority on Wednesday morning, with four more expected by early Thursday, according to Power Malu, an activist who has been assisting migrants arriving at Port Authority.
…In a statement Wednesday, Mayor Eric Adams again pleaded with the federal government for more help in dealing with the crisis.
“The transition of this site into a new humanitarian relief center at Austell Place is an important next step in our efforts to do our part, but, as we’ve said month after month, only more support from our state and federal partners and real policy change in Washington will truly address this crisis,” Adams said.

Mayor Eric Adams warned that the raging migrant crisis will “destroy” New York City and tore into President Biden for ignoring his pleas for help, saying that the White House has given “no support” for the thousands of asylum seekers arriving each month.
“I’m gonna tell you something New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this.” Adams said at a town hall on the Upper West Side Wednesday night. “This issue will destroy New York City. Destroy New York City.”
Hizzoner took aim at Biden for not stepping in with federal assistance as the city received more than 110,000 migrants in the past year.
“Month after month I stood up and said this is gonna come to a neighborhood near you. Well, we’re here, we’re getting no support on this national crisis, and we’re receiving no support,” Adams said.
Adams also blasted Texas Gov. Greg Abbott as a “madman” for bussing illegal border crossers to New York and other liberal cities.
