Up Close with Bill Ritter: Biden Announces Protections for Immigrant Spouses and Children of U.S. Citizens

NEW YORK (WABC)– President Joe Biden recently signed his latest executive order aimed at protecting undocumented spouses of U.S. citizens.

With an estimated 200,000 migrants in New York, immigration is a hot-button issue in the 2024 presidential race.

So what should be the policy regarding people who try to come to the United States without proper documentation? How to secure the border?

Bill Ritter sits down with New York House Representative Adriano Espaillat to discuss it.

Additionally, one of the benefits of congestion pricing was supposed to be improved response times in emergencies. But it turns out the problem is actually worse outside the proposed tolling zone.

Investigative journalist Dan Krauth has more on the 7 On Your Side investigation.

Up Close airs Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m. on Channel 7, WABC-TV in New York.
