The Ladies of the View suggested Friday that migrants should be “resettled elsewhere” because America is a “huge country,” while discussing their disappointment with Mayor Eric Adams’ handling of the crisis facing faced the city of New York.
New York Mayor Eric Adams warned earlier this week that the 10,000 illegal asylum seekers arriving each month would “destroy” the city.
It’s a sea change for the mayor, who promised during his campaign that New York would remain a sanctuary city under an Adams administration, saying in 2021: “We should protect our immigrants.” Period.’
Discussing Adams’ remarks, The View host Ana Navarro said migrants put “tremendous pressure” on cities, communities and social services – adding: “They need to be resettled elsewhere.”
Navarro’s co-host Sara Haines agreed, saying, “They need to be dispersed.” Navarro is a Republican, while Haines describes herself as a moderate leftist who grew up in a conservative household.
But many social media users criticized the women’s remarks and accused them of displaying a “not in our backyard” attitude, as many other states also struggle to cope with an influx of migrants.
More than 10,000 migrants arrive each month and more than 110,000 are spread across the metro.
Ana Navarro, co-host of The View, said migrants fleeing to New York must be “resettled elsewhere.”
The heated discussion on the talk show was sparked by a video of the New York City mayor addressing furious residents at a town hall meeting on Wednesday.
Clips showed Adams admitting he didn’t see a solution to the migrant crisis as he denounced Joe Biden’s lack of aid.
Adams said: “Let me tell you something, New Yorker. Never in my life have I had a problem that I couldn’t see the end of. I see no end to this,” he conceded. “This problem is going to destroy New York City. Destroy New York City.
There are now nearly 60,000 migrants in the city’s custody, and around 21,000 new migrant children are starting school this year.
Joy Behar, host of The View, said the crisis “is only going to get worse with global warming and climate change because people can’t live in certain parts of this world.”
Navarro then compared the migrant crisis in the Big Apple to her experience as an immigrant in Miami in the 1980s.
She compared the current migration to New York to the Mariel boat lift, when a mass emigration of Cubans departed from the port of Mariel in Cuba to the United States between April 15 and October 31, 1980.
This comparison refers to migrant buses arriving almost daily, with more than 10,000 arriving each month and more than 110,000 spread across the metro.
Mayor Eric Adams opened more than 200 shelters across the five boroughs to try to house the 100,000 people arriving from the border.

Alyssa Farah Griffin, former White House strategic communications director and Donald Trump staffer, now co-host of The View, said: “New York is finally getting a little taste of what the border states have been like. been faced for decades.
Griffin said, “It’s a problem with Biden right now because he’s the president.” This was a problem under Trump. This has been a problem for over 25 years. We haven’t had major immigration reform in this country in decades.
In a desperate attempt to ease the migrant crisis, Mayor Eric Adams has opened more than 200 shelters across the five boroughs to try to house the tens of thousands of migrants arriving from the border.
The mayor’s office estimated that the migrant issue would cost New York City $12 billion over three years.
Adams had earlier announced his intention to discourage migrants from coming to the Big Apple by telling them that “the city was full.”
Adams said the Big Apple receives more than 10,000 migrants every month and warned the city could be transformed forever.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams discussed the migrant crisis at a town hall Wednesday, warning that it would “destroy” the Big Apple.
Sara Haines told her other co-hosts that the immigration system has been “broken” for years and “neither party has come forward to fix it.”
Haines said, “There are 500 jobs waiting upstate in agricultural areas.” She explained, “Permits don’t go through DC.
“Mayor Adams goes to see Kathy Hochul who says we’re not going to call anything into session,
“If it’s an emergency and we’re all saying lives are at stake, come back from your break – wherever it is – sit down and figure it out.”
