 New York City Mayor Eric Adams on Tuesday called for migrants to be allowed to work as lifeguards as the city faces a shortage for the role -- arguing that many are "excellent swimmers."

Adams was asked at a press conference about a lifeguard shortage in the city as Memorial Day nears and with the summer months approaching.

He said the situation could be helped "If we had a migrant and asylum seeker plan that states those jobs that we are…in high demand we could expedite."

"How do we have a large body of people that are in our city, and country, that are excellent swimmers and, at the same time, we need lifeguards -- and the only obstacle is that we won’t give them the right to work to become a lifeguard," he said.

"That just doesn’t make sense."

He listed off other occupations, including food service workers and nurses, where the Big Apple may face shortages.

"We have all these eligible people waiting to work with the skills we need to fill the jobs but we are unable to allow them to work because bureaucracy is in the way," he said. "That just does not make sense."

The city has been grappling with a migrant crisis that has enveloped the city in recent years. Officials recently said that there have been more than 1950,000 migrants who have entered the shelter system since 2022, and more than 65,000 are still in the shelter system.

Any form of working papers so they can vote democrat in local NY elections.
This will likely include drivers licenses and if anybody thinks these illegals who broke into this country will drive sober or keep up with their assigned risk pool $3500+ insurance premiums I have a bridge for sale.

Its also a joke the mayor thinks trespassing criminals from the hills of 3rd world shitholes are good swimmers. This mayor and this Hispanic Pope holding the remote controls both have brain disease.

Like him I consider myself liberal, open minded, and tolerant. I do have a history of throwing tantrums when someone says something I disagree with. But I really am a very open minded guy. All of my friends, who have the very same views that I have, agree that I am open minded.

Good ole TrumpTurd Adams caught accepting bribes from Billionaires to quash anti-genocide protestors.
No wonder it's Israel first and America last with these corrupt politicians.
Billionaires and AIPAC own America.
