Amidst the concerning political immigration battle between State Governor, the Big Apple received 6 more busloads of migrants from the south of the border, after already welcoming around 100,000 over the past month.
The continued arrival of migrants comes amid the escalating battle after GOP governors in numerous states are sending asylum-seeking migrants to Democratic-led states.
With no federal resources that can help New York settle these new arrivals, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre only said, “The administration has been in regular touch with the cities that have to deal with this.”
On the same day as the fresh set of migrants was to arrive, Mayor Eric Adams on Thursday toured a new resource center in Manhattan that aims to help migrants access legal aid, healthcare, clothes, and other resources. “During a crisis there are two types of New Yorkers: there are those who play “I got you” and complain and there are those who roll up their sleeves and just get stuff done,” the mayor said.
As Adams crumbles under the weight of his duties as a Democrat, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, on the other hand, flew 48 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, saying, “Every community in America should share in the burden. It shouldn’t just fall on the Red States.”
Meanwhile, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who is sending busloads of migrants to New York CIty, has also sent migrants to the gates outside Vice President Kamala Harris’ home in Washington, D.C. Thursday.
