“We have already seen a Stemming of Tide”

New York Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul, in Tuesday night’s first and only debate against Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin, said, “We’ve already seen a wave of people coming” from across the border.

Hochul, during the debate, was faced with an estimated $1 billion in costs New York will face to house the commuters brought in by the governors of Texas and Florida.

Ultimately, she said “we’ve already seen a pushback from the wave of people” due to her conversations with President Joe Biden and his chief of staff about this and that the estimate of one billion dollars would be much lower.

“I’m talking to the president of the United States about it because I’ve spoken to Joe Biden and his chief of staff many times,” she said of other states that send border workers to New York. because it is a sanctuary state.

“[Biden] understood our frustration that this is truly a federal issue, that these people should not be used as political pawns by these governors,” she added, while promoting all frontiersmen in being processed for asylum at the border, rather than in different parts of the country.

The Empire State Democrat continued:

I think that $1 billion figure will be significantly lower because after our conversations President Biden started making changes so people are more likely to be incentivized to stay in their own country. So we have already seen a push back of the tide of people. I don’t know if that’s going to change, but right now it’s a different direction.

While the United States has seen a record number of arrests at the southern border in the past 12 months – already surpassing the record set last year – the host was mainly referring to the governors of Florida and Texas sending in border crossings in New York.
