Mayor wants to provide ‘true picture’ of NYC migrant crisis during trip to South America this week

Mayor Eric Adams on Tuesday said that while traveling to Mexico and South America this week, he plans to counter a narrative that New York City will provide for an endless number of migrants by giving a “true picture” of how the influx is impacting the Big Apple.

Hizzoner said his coming four-day joint to Mexico, Ecuador and Colombia will run Wednesday through Saturday. He made the remarks during the first of a new once-per-week mayoral briefing devoted to taking reporters’ questions on any subject.
