Top Aide Expresses Doubts on NYC Mayor’s Ability to Handle Crisis

'I think the optics of this are bad for Biden and bad for the mayor... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) A new video from Project Veritas Action revealed that New York City Democrat Mayor Eric Adams has lost the faith of his staff, with his top aide expressing doubt over his boss’s ability to handle the illegal immigrant crisis in the city.

Chris Baugh, a top member of the Advance Team for Adams, revealed the details of the worrisome situation unknowingly to a Project Veritas journalist, the Post Millennial reported.

“There was talk about us just limiting the number of migrants we would accept, and I’m glad we didn’t do it that way. But I still think what [Texas Governor] Abbott was doing has proven effective. Like, it’s flooded our system,” Baugh said.

“Frankly, I don’t know how much Biden is going to appreciate having a mayor be like, ‘Hey, you owe blue cities money because of this migrant crisis,'” he continued.

Baugh expressed concern that the crisis at the border would effect the Biden adminsitration in a severely negative way, and doubted that Adams was up to the task of solving this problem.

“It’s a very perilous situation for him and I don’t know that Eric Adams is capable enough to navigate it,” Baugh said.

Eventually, Baugh said that the primary struggle New York City is facing is over the Right to Shelter laws.

He noted that the law was originally intended to keep homeless New Yorkers off the streets at night, giving them a place to sleep.

“The law is not designed to say like, ‘we want asylum seekers to come to New York City,'” he explained. “That’s not the design of the law.”

He went on to explain that Adams is choosing not to amend the laws, because if he made an amendment or were to attempt to put a cap on the number of immigrants allowed in the city, “everyone would resign.”

When asked how many illegal immigrants the city is willing to take in, Baugh said “all of them” were allowed to come in.

“I think the optics of this are bad for Biden and bad for the mayor, and I think Biden saying, ‘Alright, I’m just gonna give money to New York City because they can’t take care of these migrants’ is just gonna be bad politics for him,” said Baugh.
