Mayor Adams is proposing a new plan to deal with New York City’s migrant crisis, saying sports stadiums and arenas could be used to house them.
“I believe in that concept of putting people in the setting and have all those services, the wraparound services, that are needed. And we have been attempting to identify locations that we can do so,” Adams said.
More than 40,000 migrants have arrived in the city in recent months. The mayor now wants to send some of them to cities upstate.
“I think it's a win-win. We have many municipalities throughout the entire state that are suffering in population, that are dealing with the need of employees,” Adams said.
