Eric Adams is preparing tents for migrants arriving from the border.
According to a report from The New York Post, New York City Mayor Eric Adams is having trouble housing all the migrants arriving from the southern border and has resorted to preparing tents and cots to manage the influx; shelters aren’t capable of handling the overflow.
From The New York Post:
The announcement contained few specifics. It says the first emergency tent shelter will be set up at Orchard Beach in the Bronx and that migrants will likely spend between one and four days in the facilities.
It does not say how many beds will be provided or what the costs might be.
City Hall’s press release does not even mention the word “bed,” but officials included an image of rows of cots lined up inside an image of one of the temporary structures.
The caption for the photo read: “A past example of what the inside of a Humanitarian Emergency Response and Relief Center will look like that would only shelter single adults. Families would be sheltered in a humanitarian relief center with a different setup.”
More than 11,000 migrants have arrived in the Big Apple on Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s buses.
