Hochul inks executive order boosting resources to NYC ahead of anticipated migrant surge


Governor Kathy Hochul signed an executive order Tuesday expediting the release of $1 billion in aid to New York City and providing additional support resources to help address the anticipated surge in new migrant arrivals as the federal Title 42 provisions expire.

The increased logistical support includes mobilizing 500 more National Guard members to assist with processing the migrants at the Port Authority Bus Terminal and various other intake and shelter sites around New York. It also enables the state government and localities such as New York City to rapidly procure, purchase and distribute food, clothing and other necessities to migrants as needed.
