The mayor is calling for federal and state assistance to help cover the expenses of the inflow, which are expected to cost New York $1 billion this fiscal year. “The city is going to run out of funding for other priorities. “New York City is doing all we can, but we are reaching the outer limit of our ability to help,” Adams said. As part of his emergency declaration, Mr. Adams issued an executive order allowing the city to allocate funds and expedite any response operations for the asylum seekers. However, a spokeswoman for Texas Governor Greg Abbott, dismissed the mayor’s Friday announcement. “The true emergency is on our nation’s southern border where small Texas border towns are overrun and overwhelmed by hundreds of migrants every single day as the Biden administration dumps them in their communities,” said Renae Eze.
