New York City declares city emergency over migrant crisis

New York City Mayor Eric Adams declared a city emergency on Friday after a humanitarian crisis that has brought thousands of asylum seekers to the five boroughs.

Emergency Executive Order 224 directs all relevant city agencies to coordinate their efforts to respond to the asylum seeker humanitarian crisis and build the city's Humanitarian Emergency Response and Relief Centers, according to a City Hall statement.

Adams told reporters that they were talking about 100,000 people going into next year, a number that could be 100,000 people.

New York City has opened 42 hotels as emergency shelters, and placed 5,500 migrant children into public schools since this humanitarian crisis began in quick and urgent action, with virtually no coordination from the states sending them, according to a statement from the City Hall.

Greg Abbott is exaggerating the situation, saying he's lying about his role in sending migrants to New York and that he's untrustworthy. A representative for Abbott could not be reached for comment on Friday.

The mayor also chided city council members who are allegedly demanding action on the influx, but are not willing to take on any of the burden.

Adams said that house people were not in my district.
