New York City Mayor Eric Adams is finding out just how tough it is to deal with an influx of illegal immigrants.

Adams declared a state of emergency on Friday, noting that the city is not equipped to handle the illegal immigrants coming from Texas.

Previously Adams had boasted about New York City’s status as a “sanctuary city.”

Now, though, he said the more than 17,000 “asylum-seekers” are straining the city’s resources.

Adams said the crisis isn’t one of the city’s own making but will affect everyone in the city.

“New Yorkers are angry,” he said. “I’m angry, too. We have not asked for this. There was never any agreement to take on the job of supporting thousands of asylum seekers.”


  1. How about 2 million illegals? 17,000 not a spit in a bucket. Suck it up buddy. You want to be a sanctuary you better better figure it out. Our southern border states did not ask for this, YOU ASKED FOR IT, so deal!
