Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop announced Tuesday his city is joining a federal lawsuit challenging a de Blasio administration program that pays for working-class homeless New Yorkers to move across the Hudson River.

Fulop made the announcement as New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio laid out a new $100 million a year effort to tackle the street homelessness in the five boroughs — one of the most visible symptoms of New York’s housing shortage.

“Meanwhile… we’re joining onto the lawsuit from Newark against NYC for pushing their homeless population to NJ cities (including JC without communicating anything or providing proper support,” Fulop wrote on Twitter, linking back to a live feed of de Blasio’s announcement. “That @NYCMayor plan is not solving the problem that is abdicating the responsibility.”
