Meet the New Yorkers Welcoming Asylum Seekers Bused to City After Hostile Reception at U.S. Border

As thousands of asylum seekers continue to arrive on buses in New York, we speak with a man from Venezuela about his journey, and two New Yorkers who have been helping since August to welcome them with dignity and ensure they get the housing, food and other assistance they need. "The system here in New York City is not created for this type of community, which is the migrants that are arriving," says former asylum seeker, Adama Bah. "It is our job as New Yorkers to be able to welcome them in this city that is a so-called sanctuary city," adds Power Malu, with the group Artists, Athletes and Activists. Bah and Malu also discuss how their work is being repeated nationwide.
