FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) — Bracing for a city showdown, Fayetteville is looking to take on New York City after a handful of homeless families were reportedly illegally bused from the Big Apple to the Sandhills.

An investigative report from the NY Post found that it’s part of an assistance program in New York but Fayetteville’s mayor says he had no idea it was happening.
