Mayor Adams visits southern border in El Paso amid ongoing migrant crisis


Mayor Eric Adams visited the city of El Paso, Texas, on the southern border between the United States and Mexico, on Sunday for a fact-finding mission as the city welcomes a massive swell of Latin American migrants.

The mayor kept a busy schedule on his Texan excursion. He started his day meeting with El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser, discussing the impact of migrant crossings on the community and “how cities can band together to call on the federal government to take the lead on tackling this crisis,” according to the mayor’s press secretary, Fabien Levy.
