New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, took a jab at Joe Biden over his immigration policies during a recent event. He criticized the president for reversing former President Donald Trump’s strict border enforcement regime, which he believes is leading to the destruction of his city.
Adams, who has been forced to deal with his own ‘sanctuary city’ policies for months, blamed Democratic officials in New York for not fighting for the resources that are needed to address the ongoing crisis. He also claimed that the migrant crisis is draining the city’s financial resources and preventing him from improving New York’s fiscal position.
The mayor’s comments have ignited a firestorm of controversy, with some Republicans calling for an investigation into the matter. They argue that Biden’s policies are leading to a humanitarian crisis and that the government is turning its back on New York City.
