May 11, 2023 12:21 pm

Mid-Hudson News reports that the first migrants bused out of New York City have arrived in the Hudson Valley. "Less than a day after Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus received assurances from New York City officials that no buses carrying asylum seekers would be sent to the county in the near future, a coach bus arrived at the Crossroads Hotel Newburgh in Orange Lake" on May 11 filled with migrants. Police, security guards, and several well-wishers carrying welcoming signs were there when the bus arrived. The migrants came from New York City on May 11, but had been brought there some time ago after entering the United States at the southern border. Gov. Kathy Hochul has declared a state of emergency on the issue to free up funding to address the arriving migrants. Read more about this story at Mid-Hudson News.
