NYC is seeing fewer migrants since Biden border crackdown, Adams admin official says

The number of migrants arriving in the Big Apple each week has dropped since President Biden took action last month to crack down on illegal border crossings, a top city official said Tuesday.

Deputy Mayor Anne Williams-Isom said the city has seen a marked decrease in the number of new arrivals since Biden took executive action in early June to temporarily suspend asylum claims for those who cross the border illegally between ports of entry. Biden’s executive order, which kicks in when the average number of daily crossings over a 7-day period exceeds 2,500, makes those who cross illegally ineligible for asylum and subjects them to expedited deportation.
