NEW YORK, NY (Newsource) – New York National Guard members have stepped in to help staff New York City shelters and other emergency sites following an influx of migrants.

They’re providing support for thousands of asylum seekers, helping existing staff with things like food distribution and capacity management.

Guard members are not assisting with security, social services or case management.

Right now, it’s unclear how many have been mobilized and where they have been deployed.

The deployments come less than a week after the mayor of El Paso, Texas said his city would no longer be sending buses of migrants to New York City crediting recent changes in federal policy.

The offices of Mayor Eric Adams and Governor Kathy Hochul have not yet responded to requests for comment.
