Local electeds, community orgs step up to help asylum seekers


Brooklynites from around the borough are rushing to the aid of asylum seekers arriving in New York City, as the ongoing influx of refugees continues to develop.

Mayor Eric Adams has declared a state of emergency in response to the situation, which has seen over 17,000 migrants arrive in the Big Apple, and has been pleading with the state and federal governments to aid the city in their efforts to provide basic necessities to the migrants.
