CBS: Mayor Adams heads to U.S. southern border as New York City deals with record surge of migrants

Mayor Eric Adams traveled to the U.S southern border on Saturday as he seeks assistance in dealing with a record number of migrants arriving in New York City.

He says the city needs help from the federal government and the state.

Friday, the mayor asked Gov. Kathy Hochul for help housing the asylum seekers, saying shelters are bursting at the seams from the endless flow of migrant buses.

Nearly 40,000 migrants have arrived in New York City in the past several months. We're told 3,100 migrants arrived in the city last week, with 835 on Thursday alone -- a record high.
