New York Governor Kathy Hochul called on the Biden administration to present a “federal solution” to the influx of thousands of migrants that are being bused from border states, saying the state can only do so much.

“I’ve raised this with the White House,” she said during an interview Tuesday with Bloomberg Television’s David Westin. “Let’s look at federal facilities, federal staff to help supplement the city.”
