(New York, NY) -- Governor Andrew Cuomo says more than 70 migrant children separated from their families at the border are being housed in New York State. There are 10 federal shelters, including one in Ulster County where the children are being held. The Governor announced plans to sue the federal government over its "zero tolerance policy" being enforced at the border.
From Governor Cuomo's Press Release:
“The Governor is directing the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, the Department of Health and the Office of Children and Family Services to commence legal action against the federal government's "Separation of Families" policy. Following the callous and inhumane treatment of immigrant families at the border, New York is suing to protect the health and well-being of children being held at least 10 different facilities across the state and at others throughout the nation.”
