Local State of Emergency Declared

Genesee County, NY – Out of an abundance of caution, a local State of Emergency has been put into place by County Manager L. Matthew Landers as of May 17, 2023, in response to New York City’s actions to rapidly divert the number of migrants and asylum seekers to other counties in New York State.

“Genesee County is not equipped for a rapid increase of persons needing services. If the City of New York or other municipalities were to flood the County with undocumented individuals and asylum seekers, the situation would only worsen,” said Manager Landers

In addition a Local Emergency Order will remain in effect for five days unless sooner modified, extended, or revoked. It may be extended for additional periods not to exceed five days during the pendency of the local state of emergency. This order may be referred to as the “Genesee County Sustainable Migration Protocol”.
