NYC Mayor Adams’ Statement in Repsonse to Fruitful New York State Budget Agreement. The key words are 2.4 billion dollars to support migrants..

After Months of Collaboration and Advocacy, Major Adams Administration Priorities to Be Delivered in New York State Budget

NEW YORK – New York City Mayor Eric Adams today released the following statement in response to the $237 billion Fiscal Year 2025 budget agreement reached by New York Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York state Legislature this afternoon:

“This budget will be a win for New Yorkers. Every day, this administration works to deliver on our vision that supports working-class families by protecting public safety, rebuilding our economy, and making this city more livable. As a result, crime is down, jobs are up, and our administration continues to deliver each day for everyday New Yorkers. But we’ve been clear that we need additional support from our partners in Albany to fully realize those goals and today we celebrate as most of our key asks were granted by our state partners.

“We want to thank Governor Hochul, Senate Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins, Assembly Speaker Heastie, and the Legislature for hearing us out and delivering today on a number of our administration’s and this city’s priorities in the state budget.

“From the beginning of this process, we carried our bold agenda to Albany to achieve several key requests, including legislation that will allow New York City to build the affordable housing New Yorkers need and deserve, regulatory authority to finally close down illegal smoke shops plaguing our streets, and funding for the unprecedented migrant crisis that New York City has overwhelmingly shouldered.
“We are thrilled that there has been agreement on most of our core priorities, including the major package of legislation to grow our affordable housing supply and protect tenants, municipal enforcement of illegal smoke shops, and $2.4 billion for migrant support. We will continue to fight for New Yorkers on crucial issues, especially preserving mayoral accountability as we advocate to support public school children and families and boost student test scores and graduation rates, while decreasing racial disparities.

“Today, we celebrate along with our colleagues in state government and look forward to our continued partnership to advancing the critical issues that working-class New Yorkers expect and deserve.”

P.S. As is customary, another criticism:

Residents of New York do indeed need cheap affordable housing. But the provision of housing is not aimed at New York residents but at filling the city with migrants who are attracted to the city by “free housing” at the expense of other New Yorkers who are forced to squeeze into apartments that by American standards would have been called tenements decades ago, and work multiple jobs paying huge sums for tickets, parking, and bridge tolls, while the city leadership receives six-figure salaries, and the city pays million-dollar “kickbacks” to certain groups of people violating the law. Stories of “amazing improvements” in crime statistics are not surprising, as the police simply do not register criminal offenses, closing criminal cases according to reports to our editorial office. Just one line says it all: “2.4 billion dollars to support migrants” – not New Yorkers, but “MIGRANTS” – citizens of COMPLETELY DIFFERENT countries!!!
