Several county leaders in New York state are joining together, declaring a state of emergency in the remaining hours before Title 42 expires.

One of those county leaders is Rensselaer County Executive Steve McLaughlin.

The county leaders fear we could see an influx of migrants into upstate New York.

McLaughlin said by doing this, it gives him added authority to prevent hotels and motels from entering into a contract with another municipality without his permission, and taking in migrants who cross the border illegally.
