    The Facts

    • Amid New York City's migration crisis, NYC Mayor Eric Adams confirmed in an interview Monday that the city is providing tickets to migrants seeking to go elsewhere, with many heading to Canada.

    • The National Guard has reportedly been distributing bus tickets to migrants at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan for them to head to upstate New York and then Canada.

    The Spin

    Republican narrative

    Adams, who sanctimoniously condemned US border states for sending migrants to New York, is now hypocritically taking advantage of the STCA's loophole, which has opened a back — albeit illegal — door into Canada, where the majority face arrest. This calls attention not only to Adams' fabricated concern for migrants but, more importantly, to the need to close the STCA's glaring gap.

    Democratic narrative

    Unlike GOP states that use migrants as political pawns, Adams is simply helping those already wishing to go elsewhere. Despite questions about its efficacy, the Safe Third Country Agreement is working, and Canadian officials are doing their best to make up for any perceived flaws in the agreement. Migration and asylum-seeking is a delicate issue, and with some tweaks, the agreement can help bring order and fairness to Canada, the US, and migrants.
