NYC Mayor Adams Cancels Trip To The Border Over Safety Concerns

New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) decided to cancel his trip to the southern border on Saturday, citing safety concerns in one of the Mexican cities he was supposed to visit.

While appearing on Friday’s radio show “The Reset Talk Show”, Adams said that he planned to meet with “national immigration leaders who all applaud what we have done” on Saturday.

However, Adam’s spokeswoman Amaris Cockfield said that the trip was canceled in a statement released on Saturday.

“As Lent draws to a close, our team was excited to stand with faith and humanitarian leaders who have dedicated their lives to serving the most needy among us, and we were eager to discuss our work in New York City and explore new ways to collaborate with leaders in cities across the country,” she said.

“But due to safety concerns at one of the cities we were going to visit in Mexico flagged by the U.S. Department of State, we have decided to pause this visit at this time,” the spokeswoman added.

The statement did not name the Mexican city or what the safety concerns were.

Adams was invited to visit San Juan by Sister Norma Pimentel, the executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, to tour the southern border along with other faith and humanitarian leaders.

The mayor has a history of canceling trips related to the border crisis. He canceled another trip last November — where he was headed to Washington, D.C., to discuss the crisis with President Joe Biden — after finding out that his chief fundraiser’s home was raided by the FBI over an investigation into his 2021 campaign.

While Adams wanted to avoid the area due to the potential danger, Democrats have no problem with these dangerous individuals sneaking into the country and committing heinous crimes against Americans.

Adams last visited the southern border last January — visiting El Paso, Texas to see how the city was dealing with the influx of illegal immigrants entering.

In October, he toured two Latin American countries. During the four-day trip, he visited Mexico and Ecuador, meeting officials to determine the cause of millions of illegal immigrants sneaking into the U.S. He also visited immigrant shelters and encouraged them to not come to New York City.

Adams’ office reported that over 184,000 illegal immigrant have migrated to the Big Apple since Spring 2022.
