This is another one of those "how it started vs. how it's going" kind of things but on a state level.
How it started:
In 2017, when Kathy Hochul was New York's lieutenant governor, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo made NY a sanctuary state, an order that remains in place.
How it's going:
From the New York Post:
Gov. Kathy Hochul on Wednesday warned that New York is “at capacity,” and urged newly arrived migrants to settle someplace else — as the Biden administration cleared the way for Venezuelan migrants to get work permits.
Hochul told NY1 that granting Temporary Protective Status to and expediting work permits for thousands of Venezuelans who entered the US before July 31 is “an important first step,” in getting expedited work status for all migrants.
But the governor warned that New York is “at capacity” and suggested that migrants who have arrived since July 31 consider other cities to settle in.
"We're at our limit":

Don't back out now Governor Hochul!!!
You have literally been boasting about being a sanctuary city/state. You wanted it... you got it... now suffer with it.

Wow, somebody needs to go read the poem on the Statue of Liberty!
GP But we all know, @GovKathyHochul, that Emma Lazarus' poem on the base of the Statue of Liberty has the force of the Constitution and requires states to take all comers, regardless of ability to assimilate and care for them!— The Gormogons (@Gormogons) September 21, 2023
WHY DO YOU HATE IMMIGRANTS?!? https://t.co/5ZUfb2vuJX
Statue says otherwise. Send more. https://t.co/OAQ04gaOTr— Stephen L. Miller (@redsteeze) September 21, 2023
Republican governors have exposed Democrats to the consequences of their own policies and they hate it.

Hochul and the other pro-"sanctuary" Democrats never expected to get called on their bluff.

The Biden administration keeps letting them in by the thousands per day so why not make Hochul provide the "sanctuary" that was promised?
