NYC Eyeing 750 Extra Sites To Manage Surging Migrant Crisis

Officials warn the system is “buckling” after 2,200 asylum seekers flooded into the city in the last week alone.

  • The Big Apple is currently reviewing an additional 750 sites to potentially shelter migrants amid the surging crisis.
  • The hundreds of additional migrant sites being eyed by the city comes as Mayor Eric Adams’ administration struggles to cope with the ongoing surge, which has seen some 72,000 asylum seekers arrive in the Big Apple within the last year.
  • Currently, the city is housing 45,800 migrants in the 157 emergency sites that have been set up across the five boroughs.
