New York City Mayor Eric Adams said on Monday that there’s no longer room for migrants to stay in the city, stating that the city is at a boiling point.
Adams made the comments during a violence prevention task force briefing on Monday alongside several city and state officials, including Democrat Governor Kathy Hochul.
“Here’s where we are right now. Yes, there were people sleeping in cooling vans. There were people along the sidewalk. We have to localize this madness. We have to figure out a way of how we don’t have what’s in other municipalities where you have tent cities all over the city,” Adams said.
“We need to call a state of emergency, and we need to properly fund this national crisis,” he said.
