New York City Democrat Mayor Eric Adams said on Friday that the "migrant crisis" under the Biden administration is destroying the city.

"[The] city is being destroyed by the migrant crisis," Adams said during a panel with the African American Mayors Association in Washington, D.C.

Adams suggested that local politicians in New York  aren't doing a lot to fix the problem either. 

"None of my folks came to Washington, D.C., to fight for the resources, that's going to undermine every agency in our city," he continued.

Adams had made similar comments about the struggles his city was facing earlier in the week, according to Fox News.

He stated that the "national government has turned its back on New York City" and that "every service in this city is going to be impacted by the asylum seeker crisis."

The New York Daily News reports that over 45,000 migrants have come to New York City since last spring.
