NYC Mayor takes on Texas migrant buses

New York City Mayor Eric Adams, the one-man unwelcome wagon, has issued an executive order requiring bus companies carrying migrants to provide the city with 32 hours of notice before arriving, which is now only permitted at limited times. Adams aims to instill order on the migrant crisis that is overwhelming city services, with more than 150,000 migrants arriving over the last year and a half.

The executive order is aimed squarely at Texas governor Greg Abbott, who has sent 70,000 migrants to Democrat-run cities since this summer. Backed by the threat of jail time and hefty fines, the order is an attempt to get bus operators to stop participating in Governor Abbott’s actions.

What Eurovision means to Ukrainians at war

What Eurovision means to Ukrainians at war

Where else will you find banana-inspired wolves, dubstep rapping astronauts, or earworms about vampires? It’s Eurovision, of course: the 70-year-old song contest that pits nations against each other in an annual spectacle of camp, kitsch, and catchy melodies.

But for Ukrainians – who have won the contest three times in the past 20 years – the contest is about something much more.

On GZERO Reports, we visit a secret Eurovision watch party outside of Kyiv, a drag party in New York City, and look at how Eurovision is more political than you – or those wolves, astronauts, and vampires – could imagine.

100,000: New export taxes on fuel could reduce the amount of diesel India sells abroad by as much as 100,000 barrels per day, exacerbating shortages and high prices elsewhere. Meanwhile, the Indians keep scooping up Russian oil at bargain prices.

Hard Numbers: Sinn Féin wins, HK gets new pro-China boss, Nigeria grounds flights, NYC rats on a rampage

27: For the first time, Sinn Féin became the largest party in Northern Ireland's assembly after winning 27 seats in Thursday's election. The result matters because Sinn Féin openly supports reunification with the Republic of Ireland, an EU member state, and because UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson might use Northern Ireland to pick another fight with Brussels.

Putin’s war brings big changes to Little Odessa

For years, one of the most popular grocery stores in the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn was called “A Taste of Russia.”

Then, in late February, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine. Within a week, the store’s co-owner, Bobby Rakhman, had taken down his sign and replaced it with a new one: “International Food.”

“When the war started,” says Rakhman, who came here from the Soviet Union as a child in the 1970s, “we felt very uncomfortable with the name Taste of Russia. Even though it didn't mean anything political, it made people feel bad that the name Russia was associated with a store located in the midst of, as we call it, ‘Little Odessa’.”

Alex Kliment visits New York's "Little Odessa" for an episode of GZERO World with Ian Bremmer. Watch the video above.
