Migrants Arrive In Albany, New York
Albany County Executive Dan McCoy confirmed dozen of migrants were bused to the Ramada Inn in Albany on Sunday.
"We cannot forget that we are a nation of immigrants. As President Bill Clinton once said, ‘More than any other nation on Earth, America has constantly drawn strength and spirit from wave after wave of immigrants. In each generation, they have proved to be the most restless, the most adventurous, the most innovative, the most industrious of people," McCoy stated.
McCoy supports migrants arriving in New York State and Albany but adds there must be better communication with New York City officials going forward to avoid "further chaos."
"I am in full support of migrants entering America, New York State and Albany County. However, we also must understand the current situation and circumstances affecting our communities," he said. Sending migrants to us without a plan in place is not the answer. We need direct communication with Mayor Adams to find the best solution, so this isn’t creating further chaos.
