Migrants continue flocking to major hubs like New York City despite there being little to no space left to house asylum seekers. The issue has gotten so severe that New York City Mayor Eric Adams claims the migrant surge “will destroy New York City” if they are not given proper funding and resources. As the migrant crisis leads to an estimated $12 billion budget deficit in NYC, many lawmakers are asking what it will take for President Biden to put this issue higher on his priority list. On the Rundown, New York Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis joins to discuss why she believes the mayor’s actions have ‘incentivized illegal immigration,’ as opposed to preventing it and why allowing this is “a slap in the face” to the immigrants in New York City who did follow the legal process to live in the U.S. She also honors those who tragically lost their lives 22 years ago today on September 11th, 2001 and how the heinous attack committed on 9/11 continues impacting members of her community to this day.
The COVID-19 pandemic shined a spotlight on remote education. But now that children have mostly returned to the classroom, schools are finding it increasingly difficult to staff teachers. The problem is so bad in some cases, districts across the country are reaching out to third-party companies to employ remote instructors to educate students from miles away. Susan Moore Johnson, research professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Evan Erdberg, founder and former president of Proximity Learning Inc. join the Rundown to weigh the pros and cons of remote education and explain why schools are turning to this option more frequently than before.
