Governor Kathy Hochul is extending an executive order to help support asylum seekers with humanitarian aid.

The executive order has now been extended until September 24.

The extension allows the state to access funding to continue to mobilize national guard members who are providing support at sites housing migrants that arrived in New York City and were sent to other municipalities throughout the state.

This executive order follows Governor Hochul’s public address to New Yorkers on the asylum seeker crisis.
Earlier this week, Hochul also announced a $20 million investment to help speed up the casework filing process for more than 30,000 migrants.
