You forgot to add that NYC has faced the exact types of events before and not only survived, but, thrived. Like when several hundred thousand Eastern European Jews, mostly from Russia and Ukraine, flooded NYC in the late 1980's following the collapse of the Soviet Union, specifically Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. I lived only a couple of miles away and don't recall anyone calling it a crisis or saying it was destroying NYC, despite the numbers of migrants/asylum seekers being 2 to 3 times larger than today. New migrants to NYC will save the city, not destroy it, as immigration provides new workers with fresh skills and young families to keep the city vibrant. Perhaps immigration will reverse the downward population trend that sees NY losing representation in D.C.
