    Five hundred cots have been set up and ready for use at a cavernous warehouse at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens as Mayor Eric Adams’ administration awaits federal approval to convert the space into a migrant shelter. New York City is bursting at the seams to house 45,800 asylum seekers in the 170 emergency sites that have been set up across the five boroughs. An additional 4,800 asylum seekers arrived at city shelters over the last two weeks alone, said mayoral spokesperson Kate Smart this week. The beds at JFK’s Building 197 and multiple trailers outfitted with showers...

    Mayor Eric Adams defended his stance on New York City’s ongoing migrants crisis Thursday morning, saying he “did not write” the laws that some say are aiding and abetting the deluge of new arrivals – but punted on the ongoing controversy over Jordan Neely’s death while applauding himself for running a “complicated city.” “I don’t think anyone [writing the laws] thought about a humanitarian crisis on this level,” Adams said during a 16-minute appearance on 77 WABC’s “Sid & Friends In The Morning.” “Eric Adams did not write these laws, but we have a New York state Constitution,” he noted,...

In total, Border Patrol has encountered 9,711 Chinese migrants at the southern border between October 2022 and April, marking an already roughly 393% increase compared...

    Business leaders warn that New York City’s summer tourism season could become a hot mess if asylum seekers take over too many hotel rooms. “I’m worried about summer tourism. We’re 30 to 45 days out from summer tourism internationally,” said Queens Chamber of Commerce president Tom Grech. “My concern is that asylum seekers will take up space normally reserved for tourists. I’m concerned we’re going to lose tourists this summer. This is ridiculous.” Even hotels in Queens near Kennedy and LaGuardia airports that typically serve tourists are sheltering migrants — at least temporarily. Earlier Wednesday, Mayor Eric Adams reported that...

    It's not everyday one of New York's most iconic landmarks is up for public auction. And yet, two months after an eye-popping $190 million offer won Jacob Garlick the Flatiron Building in a bidding war outside a Manhattan courthouse, the 121-year-old building is back up for sale. Crain's New York reports the building recognizable by its triangle shape is going up for auction once again on May 23. Garlick shocked the real estate world when he made the winning bid at the March auction, even beating out the current owners who reportedly sought to retain the building. But when it...

    Governor Henry McMaster wants aviation authorities across South Carolina to “immediately report any efforts to deplane or transport illegal immigrants” from commercial airports. It comes as the United State’s COVID-19 public health emergency, known as Title 42, expired at midnight. Gov. McMaster and other lawmakers across the country say large numbers of immigrants from around the world have gathered in preparation to illegally cross the border into the United States as that order ends. McMaster sent a letter Thursday evening to South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) Chief Mark Keel asking that he contact the chief law enforcement official for...

Moody said, “You remember, Maria, when Florida started calling out the administration right after Biden got elected as they asked for less detention capacity and started mass releasing people into the United States. We sued. They were releasing people, saying they had prosecutorial discretion to do that, it wasn’t...

The memo says that migrants can be allowed into the country on parole — a process typically reserved for “urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit” — if Customs and Border Protection (CBP) faces overcrowding. The memo calls the practice “parole with conditions” as migrants are required to make an...
