On Friday, September 1, 2023 at 11:00 a.m., there will be a very important press conference, featuring bi-partisan representation in what is being billed as a “unified press conference.”

The press conference will be held at the Fireman's Memorial Plaza, located between the County Office Building and Atlantic City City Hall at Tennessee Avenue and Bacharach Boulevard, in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

All of those who attend, featuring members of both political parties are in opposition to the Atlantic City International Airport being used to house up to 60,000 migrants from New York City.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams and New York Governor Kathy Hochul have resorted to publicly criticizing United States President Joe Biden,

The criticism is focused on Biden’s failure to protect the border and the significant number of migrants … which is gotten to the point where even the ones proud sanctuary cities can no longer manage the migration crisis.

United States Congressman Jeff Van Drew, R-NJ-2 demonstrated immediate leadership, by condemning the potential move by President Biden.

Biden, through the United States, homeland security department, announced 11 potential sites where New York City migrants could be moved to… This announcement included Atlantic City international airport as a possible site to house migrants.

New Jersey Senstor Vince Polistina also immediately stepped up and said to President Biden’s announcement, “hell no.“

Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson also engaged immediately … spending the past 24 hours, gaining the support of a bi-partisan group of elected officials to oppose President Biden’s potential move.

Levinson’s said:

“I will be joined by state legislators, county commissioners and Atlantic County mayors to voice their concerns and opposition to the federal government's proposal to relocate migrants from New York City to the Atlantic City International Airport in Egg Harbor Township. The airport is one of 11 federally owned facilities the U.S. Department of Homeland Security identified in a letter to New York City Mayor Eric Adams,” said Levinson.

Levinson is not leaving anything to chance and has made such a priority of this gathering, it will happen on the Friday of Labor Day weekend… One of the most significant holidays of the entire year.

Additionally, we have learned and confirmed that Atlantic County Commissioners Andrew Parker, a Republican and Ernest Coursey, a Democrat have drafted a unity resolution together in opposition to this proposed migrant plan.

Their resolution will be voted on this Tuesday, September 5, 2023 at the regular meeting of the Atlantic County Board of Chosen Commissioners.
