President Biden Offers Help For Migrant Crisis, Adams Says It's Not Enough

After numerous pleas from Mayor Adams for help dealing with the migrant crisis, President Biden is finally offering some assistance to ease the problems facing New York City.

The White House is granting Temporary Protected Status to those who arrived from Venezuela before July 1, 2023 and are seeking asylum. This allows them to work in the United States, with the Biden Administration promising that the work permit process will be expedited.

But Mayor Adams said the move isn't enough. He said the directive will impact just 15,000 of the 60,000 migrants are currently in the city's care and thousands more are arriving every week.

“I am hopeful that we can continue to partner with President Biden to extend Temporary Protected Status to the tens of thousands of other migrants in our care from other countries," Mayor Adams said.
