Title: Top New York City Business Leaders Call on Biden and Congress to Address Migrant Crisis
Subtitle: Executives urge immediate action on immigration policies and financial relief for cities dealing with asylum seekers
[City, Date] – Over 100 influential business leaders in New York City have penned a letter to President Joe Biden and Congress, demanding swift action on the escalating migrant crisis at the southern border. Major executives, including Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan and Jeff Gennette of Macy’s, have called on the Biden administration to take full ownership of the crisis and provide financial relief to cities such as New York that are grappling with the influx of asylum seekers.
Highlighting that immigration policies and border control are federal responsibilities, the letter stresses that state and local governments should not be burdened with bearing the consequences of this increasingly dire humanitarian situation. The executives express deep concern about the continuous flow of asylum seekers and emphasize the urgent need for expedited processing of applications and work permits for eligible individuals.
Moreover, the business leaders draw attention to the labor shortages across various industries, underscoring their willingness to provide training and job opportunities to authorized workers. Demonstrating solidarity, they mention that the business community is actively assisting and supporting organizations that are addressing the immediate needs of asylum seekers.
While recognizing that bipartisan action from Congress and the Biden administration is the ultimate solution, the executives emphasize the need for immediate action to control the border and alleviate the burden on cities and states. Governor Kathy Hochul and Mayor Eric Adams have also been vocal advocates for federal funding to offset the costs incurred by local and state governments as they respond to the crisis.
However, the response from the Biden administration has been vague, with a tendency to blame local governments for the situation, rather than offering concrete solutions. Furthermore, despite promises to appoint a liaison to assist New York City with the migrant crisis, the Biden administration has yet to follow through on this commitment.
The collective voice of these prominent business leaders adds weight to the calls for urgent action on the migrant crisis. As cities like New York struggle to manage the influx of asylum seekers, the executives implore President Biden and Congress to prioritize a comprehensive approach that addresses the immediate needs of migrants, streamlines the application process, and ensures that the burden is shared at the federal level.
As the situation continues to escalate, it is paramount that the federal government takes decisive action to control the border and provide necessary relief to cities and states grappling with the consequences of the migrant crisis.
