Shelters vs. schools?

Disagreements on how to handle the migrant crisis are playing out in New York state budget negotiations. Advocates in Connecticut want the state to spend more on its homelessness response. Prosecutors hand over a heap of evidence to lawyers about the suspected Gilgo Beach serial killer. And Governor Lamont deems Connecticut the "foodie capital of New England".
