NEW YORK (AP) — The Republican leaders of two suburban counties have declared states of emergency in an effort to block a plan by New York City’s Democratic mayor to use their communities to house hundreds of international migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. The county executives in Rockland and Orange counties have vowed to impose fines to stop the city’s plan to put migrants up at hotels in their areas for up to four months. New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced a plan Friday to bus up to 300 single adult male migrants to the two counties north of the city on a voluntary basis.
