Mayor Eric Adams has scrapped his planned trip to the southern border, citing “safety concerns” as the reason for the cancellation.

Adams was originally scheduled to visit the Texas-Mexico border, including a trip into Mexico, after he had received an invitation from Sister Norma Pimentel, the executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley in San Juan.

“As Lent draws to a close, our team was excited to stand with faith and humanitarian leaders who have dedicated their lives to serving the most needy among us, and we were eager to discuss our work in New York City and explore new ways to collaborate with leaders in cities across the country,” Adam’s spokeswoman said in a statement on Saturday.

“But due to safety concerns at one of the cities we were going to visit in Mexico flagged by the U.S. Department of State, we have decided to pause this visit at this time.”

Adams’ spokeswoman did not elaborate on which city was experiencing these safety concerns.

This isn’t the first time Mayor Adams called off a trip that was centered around the ongoing migrant crisis his city is facing. Last November, he nixed a meeting with White House officials regarding the migrant crisis after learning of an FBI raid on his chief fundraiser’s home, linked to a probe into his 2021 mayoral campaign.

Adams did, however, visit the border last January when he traveled to El Paso. There, Adams called for “clear coordination” with how immigrants are being brought in and transported throughout the country.
