NYC Sues 30 Counties for Refusing to Accept Migrants

John Binder, Breitbart, June 8, 2023

New York City officials are now suing 30 counties across New York state for refusing to accept border crossers and illegal aliens into their communities. The lawsuit comes after Mayor Eric Adams (D) was shut down when he attempted to bus migrants to multiple communities.

Since the spring of last year, more than 72,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have arrived in the sanctuary city of New York City. Adams, as a result, sought to start busing migrants out of the city and to surrounding counties across the state.

Last month, a New York judge blocked Adams from busing border crossers and illegal aliens to Orange County, New York, while another judge blocked him from busing new arrivals to Rockland County.


“Since this crisis began, New York City has — virtually on its own — stepped up to provide shelter, food, clothing, and other services to asylum seekers arriving in our city,” Adams said in a statement:

While many communities have been overwhelmingly supportive and enthusiastic about welcoming these new arrivals to their cities and towns, some elected officials have attempted to build metaphorical walls around their localities with unlawful executive orders. This lawsuit aims to put an end to this xenophobic bigotry {snip}[Emphasis added]
