Rockland County Approached by NYC Mayor’s Office for Migrant Space Amidst Ongoing Crisis

Last week, Rockland County was contacted to see if they had room for migrants who had arrived in New York City.

County Executive Ed Day mentioned that the caller identified themselves as a representative from NYC Mayor Eric Adam’s Office.

This communication comes three months after an effort to transport 300 migrant men from New York City to the Armoni Inn in Orangeburg was halted due to legal interventions.

It’s noted that from the spring of 2022, the city has catered to nearly 100,000 individuals and has set up close to 200 emergency shelters.

While legal disputes persist between Rockland County and New York City, organizations such as Proyecto Faro have long offered goods, legal assistance, and other services to immigrants in the county.

Mayor Adams has reached out to President Joe Biden, urging him to proclaim a state of emergency in light of the ongoing migrant situation.
