Mayor Adams was Given a Positive Decision From Colorado's Democratic Governor About Migrants
Mayor Eric Adams has one less issue to worry about as the second week of the year starts. Last week, he was worried that Colorado was going to be another problem for him as the city manages the 16,000 migrants who arrived. Governor Jared Polis was planning to bus migrants to New York City but has changed his mind.
The complaints from Mayor Adams and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot helped the Democratic Governor change his decision. Colorado is not a sanctuary state so Governor Polis will have to either manage the migrants who arrived or help them as best as he can.
With Title 42 on hold, this gives Mayor Adams some time to prepare for a possible big increase in migrants. Title 42 is a COVID-era policy that prevents from migrants entering the United States. The Supreme Court delayed ending the policy last month and will reconsider its future in the next two months.
