Mayor Eric Adams detailed a six-point plan for a national response to the ongoing migrant crisis at the U.S. Conference of Mayors' winter meeting Wednesday.
This comes on the heels of Adams' recent visit to the southern border.
According to the city, more than 40,000 asylum seekers have arrived in the five boroughs, with about 29,000 still in the city's care. Adams says it could cost the city more than $2 billion dollars.
Murad Awawdeh, the executive director of the New York Immigration Coalition, joined Errol Louis on "Inside City Hall" Wednesday to talk about the crisis and how the city should move forward.
