Borelli, House Republicans wield Mayor Adams’ migrant comments to attack President Biden

Republican City Council Minority Leader Joe Borelli kicked off his testimony at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on the migrant crisis Wednesday by quoting the Democratic mayor of New York City.

“Let me start with a blunt quote: ‘The migrant crisis will destroy New York City.’ Those aren’t my words. They aren’t the words of extreme MAGA members or right-wing hyperbole. Those are the words spoken by Democratic New York City Mayor Eric Adams,” Borelli said during a Sept. 20 hearing in Washington D.C. examining the financial costs of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro “Mayorkas’ open border.”
