The federal government will reimburse New York City $106 million to help the city’s continued response to the migrant crisis, Sen. Chuck Schumer. D-N.Y., announced on X on Thursday.

“NYC will receive a fresh $106M from feds to reimbursement for migrant costs,” Schumer wrote.

Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services Anne Williams-Isom said in a news conference that the $106 million is a delayed portion of a larger $150 million aid package promised last summer.

“We appreciate the productive collaboration of our federal partners, and we’ll continue to work closely with them so money can be released,” Williams-Isom said. “We will continue to advocate for significantly more support, as well as for comprehensive immigration reform.”

Schumer also took a swipe at Republicans while announcing the funds, calling for them to stop blocking the “strong, bipartisan border bill.”

“Now Republicans must stop blocking the strong, bipartisan border bill, which can deliver more,” he wrote.
