Marc Molino this week commented on NYC Mayor’s Eric Adams statement on moving migrants from New York City to Upstate New York.
Mayor Eric Adams says the City continues to take in a large number of border crossing migrants daily but is out of room to shelter them. He’s proposing to send some upstate, calling it a ‘win win’ situation.
Molinaro, who represents New York’s 19th Congressional District, said ‘We need complete transparency surrounding any plan to relocate migrants. Strategic meetings shouldn’t be happening behind closed doors.”
The NYC Mayor’s comments come after he submitted a formal request to the state for emergency aid to care for migrants. The city has taken in more than 40-thousand since the spring.
Marc Molinaro represents New York’s 19th Congressional District which includes Broome, Chenango, Columbia, Cortland, Delaware, Greene, Sullivan, Tioga, Tompkins. Parts of Otsego, and Ulster counties.
