Eric Adams returns to Big Apple from fruit­less trip to DC: ‘Help is not on the way’

New York City’s Demo­c­ra­t­ic May­or Eric Adams returned to Man­hat­tan on Fri­day with bad news about the city’s migrant cri­sis after he plead­ed for help in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., this week.
Adams vis­it­ed Wash­ing­ton, D.C., on Thurs­day to make up for a can­celed trip to the fed­er­al city last month after an FBI inves­ti­ga­tion into his cam­paign required his prompt return. Dur­ing the lat­est trip, Adams met with Demo­c­ra­t­ic lead­ers in Con­gress, peo­ple from the Fed­er­al Emer­gency Man­age­ment Agency, and senior White House advis­er Tom Perez.

“I did not leave with opti­mism,” Adams told reporters on Fri­day. “I left with the cold real­i­ty that help is not on the way in the imme­di­ate future. It is going to be, at this moment, it’s going to be up to New York­ers and this admin­is­tra­tion to con­tin­ue to nav­i­gate this chal­lenge that we’re fac­ing.”
