New Yorkers unite against city’s migrant housing proposal.

Hundreds of New Yorkers Fight Back Against City’s Plan to House Migrants ​in Converted School

Hundreds of New Yorkers took to the​ streets on Thursday evening⁣ to protest a controversial plan to house migrants in a Staten Island ​school, according to WABC-TV.

The city of New York recently purchased⁣ the St. John Villa Academy and decided to convert‍ it into a⁢ facility to accommodate approximately ⁤300 migrants, ‌as ⁣reported by WABC-TV.

However, the local community is concerned about the safety implications of housing migrants in a residential area with ‌two nearby schools.

During the protest, three ⁣arrests were​ made, according to WABC-TV.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul revealed that‍ the state has already served around 100,000 migrants ⁤and sent a list of demands to the Biden administration for assistance.

Hochul requested​ expedited work permits for the migrants, additional funds for education, more shelters, ‌reimbursements for National Guard deployments, and payments for future costs associated with their ​presence.

However, the White House ⁢expressed reluctance to fulfill all of Hochul’s demands, attributing New York’s migrant crisis to congressional inaction.

Despite the‍ ongoing debate, the city’s plan⁤ to house migrants in the converted school remains in motion.
