Rockland County has issued a new emergency order in response to New York City’s practice of relocating migrants outside its borders.
The order prohibits municipalities from setting up shelters in Rockland and resisting the imposition of costs. County Executive Ed Day emphasized that Mayor Eric Adams’ attempts to extend his authority beyond the city will not be tolerated.
This issue arose when New York City planned to house around 340 migrants at the Armoni Inn & Suites
in Orangeburg, facing opposition from the county and the town of Orangetown, resulting in an ongoing legal battle.
