Rockland County Will Fight Mayor Adams’ Migrants Plan

Mayor Adams is planning to send migrants to neighboring counties and officials in Rockland County say they’ll fight back.

A big surge of migrants is expected this week when the Covid-era policy known as Title 42 expires. Adams says the city has run out of shelter space, so he’s planning to send them to other cities.

“What the city of New York is doing is more akin to human trafficking than providing services,” Rockland County Executive Ed Day said.

Adams wants to house more than 300 adult men in hotels in Rockland County. Day says the county doesn’t have the resources to care for the migrants.

“That is going to create an undue burden on the county,” Orangetown Supervisor Teresa Kenny said.
