New York City (WABC) — This episode of Up Close takes a deep dive into New York City’s immigration crisis.
More than 65,000 people have already arrived and are still coming by bus.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams is struggling to find a place to shelter them.
So where do we house them, who pays for them, and where do we go from here?
We spoke with New York City’s only Republican congressman, Nicole Mariotakis, and Democrat Rep. Adriano Espira, who came to New York as an illegal immigrant. We also speak with former New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who now leads an organization that helps homeless people.
