Metro Migrant Crisis

'UNACCEPTABLE!': Stefanik Slams Decision to Send 2,000 Migrants to NYC School

Chair of the House Republican Conference Rep. Elise Stefanik is speaking out against the decision to send nearly 2,000 migrants to James Madison High School in Brooklyn, forcing the students to switch to remote learning; it’s “unacceptable” says Stefanik.

“It is outrageous that Eric Adams and Kathy Hochul are displacing New York students to accommodate nearly 2,000 illegal immigrants at a local New York public high school, a direct result of Joe Biden and the Democrats’ failed Far Left sanctuary state policies which is destroying the great state of New York,” Stefanik said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “This madness needs to end.”

“New Yorkers’ tax dollars are being used to house illegal immigrants, punishing and sending home New York students of James Madison High School,” she said. “It is unacceptable that Far Left New York Democrats are once again putting the needs of illegal immigrants over our children.”

The migrants were moved to the school from Floyd Bennett Field due to intense storms in the NYC area. NYC Mayor Adams said the move was a cautionary one.

“We want to make sure people are safe,” he said.

Footage of the migrants walking into James Madison High School was shared widely on X.
