Date:

As the sun rises on this Wednesday morning, our city is grappling with a complex situation involving migrants, buses, and a controversial executive order from Mayor Adams.

Police Hunt for Shooter Continues

Firstly, the police are still on the lookout for a shooter. At approximately 5:07 AM today, the search is ongoing. Stay tuned for updates on this developing story.

Mayor Adams Cracks Down on Migrant Buses

Now, let’s delve into the heart of the matter. Mayor Adams is standing firm on his executive order, aimed at limiting the number of migrant buses entering the city. This decision has sparked tension, especially as neighboring New Jersey deals with an increasing influx of migrants.

Live Reporting from Briella Tomassetti

Our reporter, Briella Tomassetti, is live at the Roosevelt Hotel in Midtown, a hub for migrant intake. She reveals that nearly 400 migrants arrived in New Jersey since Saturday, transported by ten different buses. In response, the Mayor of Edison is chartering buses to send them back to the southern border.

Challenges in Compliance and Bus Routes

The heart of the issue lies in the non-compliance of buses arriving from Texas. City Hall reports that these buses are using loopholes to drop off asylum seekers outside the city to avoid penalties. The problem isn’t limited to New York; various New Jersey cities and suburbs are experiencing the same challenges.

Buses have been spotted dropping off migrants at Secaucus Junction, Edison, and Trenton, with Governor Murphy emphasizing that New Jersey is being used as a transit point.

Mayor Adams Explores Legal Options

Mayor Adams is exploring all legal avenues, even considering involving the NYPD. He urges New Jersey municipalities to implement similar executive orders to control the situation.

Governor Hochul Shows Support

Despite previous disagreements on the migrant crisis, Governor Hochul supports Mayor Adams’s actions regarding the New Jersey situation. She suggests that neighboring states might need to take similar measures.

Texas Governor Criticizes Democrat Mayors

Texas Governor Greg Abbott criticizes Democrat mayors, accusing them of hypocrisy in avoiding their sanctuary city promises. He points out their silence as President Biden transports migrants around the country.

Federal Response and Promised Resources

The White House responds, stating they are in contact with mayors and governors in the northern part of the country, offering more resources if needed.

As the day unfolds, we will continue to provide updates on this evolving situation. Stay with us for the latest developments on the migrant crisis impacting our city and beyond.
