Rockland County has a new emergency order in response to New York City sending migrants to the Hudson Valley.
County Executive Ed Day says Rockland already has an extreme housing crisis and has been unprecedently deputized by the state to take over Building and Fire Code enforcement in Spring Valley.
This second order bars other municipalities from establishing shelters in Rockland and bars them from putting policies, costs and responsibilities on the County.
The city says it is paying for migrants who go upstate and connecting them with organizations. It also adds 22,000 asylum seekers arrived in the city this past week.
