New York City Mayor Eric Adams today released the following statement on the Biden administration’s new migration enforcement process for Venezuelans:

“While details are still emerging, this federal action is a short-term step to address this humanitarian crisis and humanely manage the flow of border crossings.

“But a long-term and proactive strategy is still needed, which includes Congress both passing legislation that will allow asylum seekers to legally work and providing emergency financial relief for our city. And, ultimately, we additionally need a bipartisan effort to deliver long-awaited immigration reform so we can offer people a safe, legal path to the American dream.

“We are grateful to President Biden and his administration for our ongoing dialogue to address this humanitarian crisis and look forward to continuing to work closely with them moving forward.”
