NYC Mayor Eric Adams calls migrant surge at border a ‘national crisis’ during El Paso visit

New York City Mayor Eric Adams headed to El Paso this weekend to visit the U.S.-Mexico border as his city has become overwhelmed with thousands of migrants that have been bused

north in recent months, straining public resources to their limits.  After arriving in El Paso Saturday evening, Mayor Adams called the surge of migrants a "national crisis"

that demands a national solution. Adams said that he and El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser were "on the front lines, and we need federal support."  The visit came after the

city submitted an emergency mutual aid request to New York State for help to shelter arriving asylum seekers.  GEORGE SOROS-BACKED OPEN BORDER GROUP SUING DESANTIS OVER
