Throughout the last few months, thousands of migrants from Texas have been sent to New York City. Those immigrants were scheduled to be sent to a Rockland County hotel, but they were denied entry as a judge said that the hotel is permitted to not accept any of the migrants sent from New York City.
The judge had also issued a temporary restraining order on Tuesday, May 9th. The name of the hotel the migrants are banned from staying in is called the Armoni Inn and Suites.
“The city (New York City) declared itself a Sanctuary City in December of 2016 committing itself to supporting undocumented individuals while this County (Rockland County) has not for the simple fact that we are one tenth the population of New York City and incapable of receiving and sustaining the volume of undocumented migrants Mayor Eric Adams intends to send over,” said Rockland County Executive Ed Day.
“This County already has a housing crisis due to the lack thereof and lack of affordable housing options. This crisis is so extreme that Rockland has been unprecedently deputized by the State of New York to take over Building and Fire Code enforcement in the Village of Spring Valley. Sending busloads of people to this County that does not have the infrastructure to care for them will only compound that issue tenfold while straining support systems that are already at a breaking point.”
During all of this, Orange County, which is a county right next to Rockland County, had also announced that they will not let the immigrants sent from New York City to stay in their hotels.
Since Title 42 (which allows border officials to deny immigrants entry) expired on Thursday, May 11th, we can only expect a massive number of immigrants to flood New York City.
Mayor Adam’s has been all over the place during this as he is extremely unorganized and has no idea what to do.
According to Adam’s, New York City does not have the resources to deal with the amount of migrants that are coming in, which is why he is sending them to other parts of New York.
