'They won't help you here': New York no longer wants to accept migrants

City officials have sent a new message to asylum seekers planning to travel to New York for this purpose. “Don't do this,” says a flyer the mayor's office sent to community groups and the federal government. They plan to distribute such proclamations in city migrant shelters, reports NBC New York.

Among their arguments are that New York's resources are stretched thin and the city "cannot help you obtain a work permit," although this may be slightly exaggerating the facts.

According to New York City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams, the city has changed its tone from last year, when the mayor welcomed asylum seekers with open arms: “We accepted you. We will provide you with all the necessary services.” Now the city mayor complains about the continued increase in the number of arrivals, which is more than 100 people, and declares: “This problem will destroy New York.”

“We must speak truthfully, without embellishment, about the challenges New York faces in providing adequate services to such a mass of migrants,” said New York City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams. The city's migrant outreach teams help them find housing and work whenever possible, she said.

National problem

Gov. Kathy Hochul said the White House is working with the city and state to process about 15 applicants who arrived from Venezuela before July 000 to receive temporary protected status. What worries the governor? That a federal government shutdown could reverse that progress.

“This will stop our ability to get people out of shelters, which is what Biden tried to do,” Hochul said on CNN.

Deputy Mayor Anne Williams-Isom said the crisis was only getting worse, with arrivals rising this week and indications the number could soon rise. “We have received word that the City of El Paso will resume bus service. In addition to the buses that Governor Abbott and the state of Texas sent here,” the deputy mayor noted.
