New York Governor Kathy Hochul said her state has been overwhelmed by the surge of illegal immigrants arriving in recent months. She blamed the border crisis on congressional Republicans, saying they “broke it” and now “own it” heading into the November election.

Hochul claimed even the 10 Republican members of Congress from New York could band together and demand Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson address the border issue.

Bipartisan solutions

“I still believe that there can be bipartisan solutions,” she said. “The institution is capable of it if you get the right people in there. And I’m going to work to make sure that we have the right people in there. And also even before next November’s election when I believe we will pick up the House, the Republicans in the state of New York, and there are ten of them, they have the power to caucus together, march down to Speaker [Mike] Johnson’s office and say, ‘we demand that you do something about the border, bring it to the floor and we will support it.'”

Use the power

“Use the power that has been given to you, because we are being so affected,” she said. She said New York City’s resources are strained by the influx of 175,000 migrants seeking jobs or asylum.

Provide relief

While working to employ the immigrants, Hochul pressed Republicans to provide relief at the border or face voter backlash, arguing control of the crisis could become a decisive campaign issue.

Absolutely overwhelmed

“We have 175,000 migrants who came here — they came here for a better life, they came here for a job, but our city and its resources are absolutely overwhelmed. We need a break.”

You broke it

“I’m working to get people jobs. They’re here. I’m going to make them work and get them jobs. But until then, we need some relief at the border, and those Republicans, even in one state like New York, ten of them can make this happen. And if they don’t, this will be a wedge issue, a forceful issue against them this November as well. So I’m putting them on notice, you broke it, you now own it,” Hochul said.

Shared sacrifice
