Border Crisis

ALL THE AMENITIES: NYC Migrants Get Big Screen TVs, XBOX Systems, Cafeteria, and Phones

The first wave of NYC migrants is arriving at the new tent shelters built on Randall’s Island —and some folks may be surprised by amenities: big screen televisions, XBOX systems, laundry facilities, a cafeteria, and more.

Each tent includes cots for up to 500 people.

Watch the first wave of migrants arrive in the clip above.

From Fox News:

More than 18,000 asylum seekers have arrived in the Big Apple since the spring, putting a major strain on the city’s homeless shelter system.

Mayor Eric Adams declared a state of emergency earlier in the month, calling increased demand “not sustainable.”

The city plans to bring the single men – many of whom are from Venezuela – to the facility when they arrive at the Port Authority bus terminal in Manhattan and house them for a period of time, during which they will assess the next steps.

Families with children are being housed in hotels.

The city said it would be able to double the sleeping capacity of the tents, if necessary.

Nearly 20,000 migrants have arrived in NYC via bus from the border since April. One Twitter user lamented the fact that illegal migrants are being treated better than our veterans and our homeless.

“So sad when illegals are treated better than our Veterans and homeless Americans. Veterans should come first!”
