More Guard Aid for Asylum Seeker Crisis Support

New York National Guard

On September 25, 2023, New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced the deployment of an additional 150 members of the New York National Guard to support the ongoing response to the asylum seeker and migrant crisis.

Because of this new deployment, the state will be able to assign 250 National Guard personnel the full-time responsibilities of case management professionals.

This, along with the $50million state investment thus far, will help asylum seekers and migrants file the appropriate paperwork to attain legal work status and exit taxpayer-funded shelters.🀰
