MIGRANT CRISIS: NYC Mayor says, ‘We need help.’



Mayor’s administration has opened an emergency tent shelter for hundreds

“We need help—and we need it now,” said Mayor Eric Adams, the mayor of the largest city in the country.

He made the remarks about the migrant crisis which he says is pushing the city to the brink and has forced him to declare a state of emergency.

In response, the mayor’s administration has unveiled a complex of giant tents built on Randall’s Island.

The temporary shelter just opened to house an influx of international migrants being bused into the city by southern border states.

The hope of the emergency tent shelter is to reduce some of the strain the city has recently felt from the steady stream of undocumented migrants.

With cots for up to 500 people, the tents also include laundry facilities, a dining hall, and phones for people to make international calls.

Currently, the humanitarian relief center is planned to be a temporary stopping point for single, adult men — mostly from Venezuela.

For months, border towns have been sounding the alarm about the crisis at the U.S. – Mexico border.

Now, with the arrival of thousands of illegal immigrants— New York City’s homeless shelter system is now bursting with more than 63,300 residents with no end in sight.

“If these trends continue,” Adams explained, “We will be over 100,000 in the year to come that’s far more than the system was designed to handle. This is unsustainable.”

Officials say migrant families with children are being housed in hotels.

China conducts ‘punishment’ war games near Taiwan



China initiated military ‘punishment’ exercises in the waters surrounding Taiwan in response to the newly inaugurated President Lai Ching-te.

These drills come amid escalating tensions in the region, with Beijing asserting its sovereignty over Taiwan, denouncing the inauguration of President Lai Ching-te and labelling this one of several “separatist acts”, as reported by Reuters.

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.

President Lai has repeatedly offered talks with China but has been rebuffed.

He says only Taiwan’s people can decide their future, and rejects Beijing’s sovereignty claims.
