Another 150 members of the National Guard are being deployed to help New York City deal with the migrant crisis. The goal is to help those seeking asylum with the paperwork needed to receive work permits.
“It is critical that we help secure work authorization for asylum seekers and migrants in New York,” Governor Kathy Hochul said.
The latest deployment means there will now be more than 2,000 National Guard members who are providing support to migrants around New York state.
“We need to ensure individuals can navigate the paperwork necessary to get them established here so they can work and start making their American Dream a reality,” Hochul said.
