A top aide for Democrat New York City Mayor Eric Adams admitted in undercover footage released by Project Veritas on Tuesday that the illegal alien crisis brought on by Joe Biden’s open-border policy is destroying the city.
Chris Baugh, an Advance Team Aide for Adams, lamented that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) scheme to ship illegal migrants to New York – which bills itself as a “sanctuary city” – as a political statement has been “effective.”
“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 told a PV journalist.
“We have more people in social services than we’ve ever have — potentially ever in history. So, it’s effectively demonstrating the strain.”
Baugh went on to explain that the migrant influx poses a major optics disaster for Biden.
“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 said. “Like, eventually that’s going to make Biden look bad. We’re a month out [until] midterms and he is not going to like that. It’s a very perilous situation for him and I don’t know that Eric Adams is capable enough to navigate it.”
“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.”
In response to the damning video, Adams’ press secretary Fabien Levy responded with claims the video was “spliced” to “spin false narratives.”
“Time and again, Project Veritas has lied and spliced video to spin false narratives and deceive the American people. No one has any reason to believe a word from an enterprise run by a convicted criminal and one that admitted to lying in an effort to even have a conversation with a member of our team.”
Project Veritas plans to release Part 2 of this story exclusively on its Telegram channel Wednesday evening.
