Eric Adams BEGS Biden For $1B As Migrant Flood Swells To 30K In NYC

Published on

Mayor Eric Adams has asked the federal government for a whopping $1 billion to handle the devastating surge of migrants who’ve ascended onto the doorsteps of the Big Apple this year, according to the NY Post.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confirmed Wednesday that its Emergency Food and Shelter Program’s National Board received the city’s funding request and was “reviewing their application.”

But FEMA “does not share information regarding pending applications and will only share award amounts upon application approval,” a spokesperson said in an email.

Adams first floated the $1 billion price tag for providing shelter and other services when he declared a state of emergency over the city’s migrant crisis in October. The city’s estimated migrant population then was around 17,400.

According to City Hall, as of Sunday, that number had risen to more than 30,300, with over 20,900 living in taxpayer-funded shelters.

The worst is yet to come, however, once Biden ditches Title 42 on December 21st which was originally put in place during the Covid-19 pandemic to turn away migrants for “pandemic reasons”. Once the clause expires, the Biden White House can expect an even more cartographic surge of migrants compared to what it’s already seen over the last 2 years.

The administration fears that border crossings could skyrocket to 14,000 a day and is considering a five-month ban on asylum-seekers who enter the country illegally or arrive at ports of entry without authorization, Axios reported Tuesday, citing sources. Former President Barack Obama considered the southern border to be in “crisis mode” at 1,000 illegal crossings per day.

The NY Post provided a shocking breakdown of what NYC is currently spending on migrants.

These numbers are projected to double if Title 42 were to be lifted. A Homeland Security Intelligence memo obtained Wednesday by CNN also warned that ending the policy would “likely increase migrant flows immediately,” with hordes of people camped out along Mexico’s northern border expected to cross into the US.

City Council Minority Leader Joe Borelli (R-Staten Island) said that lifting Title 42 would “put the Biden administration in a liberal conundrum.”

“They will have no tools to enforce the border nor will they have political capital within their own party to change the policy,” he said.

“The feds will have even less ability to stop people at the border. They will make their way here.”

Staten Island Borough President Vito Fossella also said the end of Title 42 would be “not good for the city of New York.”

“You just have to put an iPhone on the border and see the crossings on a daily basis and many of these people end up being supported by New York City taxpayers — and with no end in sight,” he said.

“Unless somebody comes to the rescue, New York City taxpayers will be on the hook for the foreseeable future.”
