Pamphlets and evictions: New York no longer wants to be a sanctuary for migrants | International

Rate this post

This week, New York Mayor Eric Adams has declared that city authorities will begin handing out flyers at the border to try to warn migrants that the city cannot guarantee them services and accommodation. He will also issue an order limiting the asylum of single adults in emergency shelters to a maximum of 60 days.

This is a new strategy for the city, which has been collapsed by the strong arrival of migrants who are sent from the republican states. Due to the right of asylum in force for 40 years, the authorities are obliged to provide protection to whoever requests it, a guarantee that Adams seeks to legally suspend.

The Adams Administration has tried in vain to pressure the Joe Biden government to launch effective aid measures to relieve the saturation in the city. According to the mayor's data, since last spring the reception of almost 90,000 people has been managed.

In recent months, several public school gyms and hotels have been converted into shelters to try to deal with the asylum demand.
