Adams did not say where in "Upstate" New York migrants should be sent.

"If this is done effectively, and the dollars come in to support those who are helping migrants and asylum seekers to incentivize this help, we believe we can … help those cities that are struggling and at the same time, give people a good start in this country," Adams added.
