New York Citytalladams(Eric Adams) Warning on the 18th,undocumented guestThe higher spending caused by the crisis will ultimately hurt low-income New Yorkers, and no one will benefit from this crisis; Currently, the city government has not received much assistance from the federal and state governments and can only pay from its own pocket.
Adams had previously ordered various departments across the city to cut spending by 15% to deal with an unspecified customer crisis; In an interview with African-American civil rights leader Al Sharpton on MSNBC, he said the city government has already spent 2 billion yuan and expects it will cost $5 billion by the end of this fiscal year. “If we can’t get more help from the federal and state governments, we’ll have to divert that spending from other places to other places that will hurt lower-income New Yorkers.”
Adams still called New York an “immigrant city”, but also said that no one would benefit from the current crisis; “It’s not right to put undocumented people in, and it’s not right for long-term residents who depend on city resources. This is not what citizens should be doing; it would force me to take an additional $5 billion out of my budget.” Which is also bad for New York City.”
Adams has previously ordered various departments to cut their budgets by 5% before November, hoping to save billions of dollars; If there is still no assistance from the federal and state governments, the other two cuts must be completed in January and April next year respectively. , “I need to make clear that these difficult decisions were made directly because of inaction by the federal and state governments,” Adams said.
Currently, the city government has opened more than 200 emergency shelters, which have housed more than 110,000 undocumented guests. It is estimated that by July 2025, spending on housing undocumented guests could reach 12 billion yuan; Adams had already left after making harsh remarks that the undocumented immigrant crisis would devastate New York City and cause an unprecedented fiscal tsunami, sparking controversy. At the time, he said, “This is not a utopia. New York City cannot accommodate 10,000 people every month with a constant flow of undocumented immigrants.” , This can’t happen, otherwise it will harm the entire city.”
