On Tuesday, the New York Supreme Court temporarily blocked New York City mayor Eric Adams from transporting illegal immigrants to nearby Orange County.
State Supreme Court Judge Sandra Sciortino ruled that while illigal immigrants who had already been bussed up the Hudson to stay at the Crossroads Hotel and Ramada by Wyndham in Newburgh would be allowed to remain, Adams was not to send any more.
According to the Hill, Adams' press secretary Fabien Levy said the mayor's office was "disappointed" in the ruling, and considering appealing the ruling.
"We need the federal government to step up, but until they do, we need other elected officials around the state and country to do their part," he argued, noting that the Big Apple was "out of space."
Levy went on to note that the city was "only asking Orange County to manage approximately a quarter of 1 percent of the asylum seekers who have come to New York City, with New York paying for shelter, food, and services."
The news was met with julibation from Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus, who slammed Adams for trying to "flood as many busses up here as possible" before the ruling was handed down.
"New York City should not be establishing a homeless shelter outside of its borders in Orange County," Neuhaus said in a statement. "The city is a self-proclaimed sanctuary city; Orange County is not. We should not have to bear the burden of the immigration crisis that the Federal government and Mayor Adams created."
Neuhaus has also filed two separate lawsuits related to the illegal immigrant crisis. The first is against the two aforementioned hotels in Newburgh, calling on them to stop accepting homeless illegal immigrants. The second seeks to prevent New York City and Mayor Adams from establishing any more "unlicensed and unregulated homeless shelters" in Orange County, a practice that violated state law.
