“We welcome Ukrainians in NYC”

New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Commissioner Manuel Castro released following press statement on welcoming 100,000 Ukrainians fleeing the crisis to the U.S:   

“We thank President Biden for listening to our call to use every tool at his disposal to welcome Ukrainians to the U.S. affected by the Russian invasion. As the home to the largest Ukrainian population in the U.S., New York City is ready to work hand in hand with our state and federal partners to safely reunite Ukrainians with their loved ones and connect them with city resources and support. Those fleeing war, persecution, or disasters are always welcome here. We also applaud the Biden administration’s efforts and investments to protect public health, democracy, and human rights for vulnerable groups in Ukraine.”
