Buses brought the border to New York City. Soon emergency tents will house hundreds of migrants
(CNN) — The latest signs of the crisis New York is facing are massive white tents the city’s mayor says he never imagined he’d have to build.
It’s been months since Texas Gov. Greg Abbott started busing migrants to New York. And it’s been just over a week since Mayor Eric Adams declared a state of emergency, warning that the growing number of new arrivals were overwhelming homeless shelters, straining resources and could end up costing the city $1 billion.
Abbott argues he’s exposed the hypocrisy of liberal leaders who are buckling under pressure that’s a fraction of what border states like his deal with daily. Adams says his city has risen to the occasion, and that New York remains committed to helping the many arriving migrants who’ve gotten caught in the cruelty of a man-made crisis. But to do that, he says, the city needs — and deserves — more help from state and federal officials.
