New York Governor Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, plans to travel to Washington, D.C., to urge Congress and the White House to address the immigration crisis and provide more support for New York, which is sheltering over 69,000 migrants.

She emphasized the federal government’s responsibility in dealing with the crisis and proposed a $2.4 billion budget to manage the influx of migrants in New York City.

Hochul also highlighted the impact of the crisis on essential services and emphasized the need to put migrants and asylum workers to work. (Trending: Two Names Emerge As Trump’s Possible 2024 Running Mate)

The immigration issue in New York could have political implications in the upcoming election, as both parties are focusing on the state as a potential battleground.

Additionally, Hochul’s budget proposal includes measures to address retail theft, improve mental health treatment, and increase housing supply.

“New York continues to carry the burden of sheltering more than 69,000 migrants,” Hochul said.

“Since day one, I have said this is ultimately the responsibility of the federal government to address this crisis,” Hochul added.

“Congress, the House of Representatives in particular and the White House, must remain at the negotiating table until they restore the rule of law at our border, fix our asylum system, and provide relief to states like New York, who have been shouldering this burden for far too long.”

“But until we see a change in federal policy that slows the flow of new arrivals, we’re going to be swimming against the tide,” she said.

“We also know that companies won’t do business in New York if there are thousands of people sleeping on the streets, where the quality of life is dramatically impacted, because the city is forced to cut essential services.”

“We’re going to continue focusing on security work authorizations and put the migrants and asylum workers to work,” Hochul addedk. “Put them to work, that’s exactly what they came here for.”

“That will continue to be our focus,” she added.

“As the migrant crisis continues, the FY 2025 Executive Budget extends an additional $2.4 billion to continue to support efforts in New York City and elsewhere in the state to safely manage the influx with the appropriate humanitarian response,” her budget proposal read.
