RANDALL'S RUMBLE! Violence Erupts at Migrant Shelter, One Arrest Made After Police Confrontation [WATCH]

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.20.24

A fight broke out at the migrant shelter on Randall’s Island late last week with one person being arrested. The incident is just the latest in a long line of violent altercations between migrants and NYPD officers.

From The New York Post:

The chaotic scene kicked off Thursday when an unnamed individual who was not supposed to be at the facility was asked to leave by officials, according to authorities.

It is unclear why they were there or what led up to the scuffle.

The person in a white t-shirt and dark pants can be seen sparring with several police officers while a large crowd looks on in a video of the incident.

Some onlookers eventually jumped into the fray – even nailing one female officer in the head with a backpack before the suspect was held down and cuffed.

The investigation is ongoing.

The Randall’s Island tent city has been a hotbed for issues since it began housing migrants in August 2023.

In January, a 24-year-old asylum-seeker was stabbed to death in the cafeteria tent during a melee over a woman.
