[anvplayer video=”5188935″ station=”998132″]
Governor Kathy Hochul is slamming what she calls a lack of coordination and communication from New York City Mayor Eric Adams, over the city’s handling of migrants.
Earlier this year, Mayor Adams stated New York City does not have the resources to care for all the migrants coming into the state.
He wanted New York City to be exempt from the Callahan v. Carey ruling, which requires New York to provide shelter for homeless people.
Mayor Adams initially said that New York City has provided resources without outside help.
Governor Hochul has responded in the documents released on Wednesday, saying the city should
not be exempt from it’s responsibility to house the homeless.
New York State has offered money and support in numerous ways to New York City, according to the document.
Hochul’s office released a statement, which says in part:
“Governor Hochul is grateful to Mayor Adams and his team for their work to address this ongoing humanitarian crisis. Governor Hochul has deployed unprecedented resources to support the city’s efforts and will continue working closely with them to provide aid and support.”
