While New York City continues to deal with its migrant crisis, Mayor Eric Adams said the situation is bigger than just New York City. He said this was a global issue.
Recently Mayor Adams was on an interview on 77 ABC with Sid Rosenberg on “Sid & Friends in the Morning”.
During the interview, Mayor Adams said to Sid:
“No, actually it is, the migration is an immigration issue. We need real true immigration reform of how we're going to allow people to cross our borders, how we're going to do a decompression strategy, how do we properly vet to make sure who's coming into our country.”
“This is a national, and really to be honest with you, Sid, it's a global problem. I spoke with global leaders over at the U.N. General Assembly, and we are hearing across the globe how people are coming into the cities from Belgium, Paris, Italy, all over the globe, this ship is happening, and we need an international response and a response and our national government as well.”
The mayor later added U.S. elected officials should communicate more rather than just by a tweet:
“First of all, I did not know you moved from a radio station host to the communicator of issues. Come on, whatever happened to good old fashioned elected officials that talk to each other?”
“You don't govern through tweet. You govern by walking the street. It's not Facebook. It's face to face interaction. It's time for our government officials to really start realizing they're elected not to be activists but to govern the complexities of the city.”
Do you think the migrant issue is bigger than just Mayor Adams?
