NYC Mayor Adams Identifies Two Places in Queens to Shelter Migrants

NYC Mayor Adams Identifies Two Places in Queens to Shelter Migrants

“One is set to be located at the state-owned Creedmoor Psychiatric Center and the other at Aqueduct Racetrack.”

New York City Mayor Eric Adams wants to use the Creedmoor Psychiatric Facility and Aqueduct Race Track in Queens to house migrants. From The City:

The city greenlit their construction this week, according to a source in Mayor Eric Adams’ administration. One is set to be located at the state-owned Creedmoor Psychiatric Center and the other at Aqueduct Racetrack.

Each is expected to house around a thousand adults, and officials are aiming to open the tented structures in the next two to three weeks, the source said.

While the Aqueduct racetrack is located near the A train, Creedmoor is a 15-minute drive from the last stop on the F train.

The facilities will resemble the structures the city opened and then shut quickly down last fall on Orchard Beach in The Bronx, and then on Randall’s Island.

However, Creedmoor and the racetrack sit on state property. Gov. Kathy Hochul has to approve all plans.

The Genting NY-Resorts World Casino is next to the racetrack. A lot of people attending the casino use the parking lots at the Aqueduct.

Hotels in Queens, especially those near JFK and LaGuardia, have become migrant shelters.

Queens Borough President Donovan Richards wants better communication between City Hall and elected officials in all boroughs:

But Richards expressed frustration that he doesn’t know how many migrants are sheltered in the borough because city officials have refused to provide the tally.

“How many migrants are in Queens? I can’t get a breakdown,” he said.

The borough president suggested the situation is unsustainable, particularly if the Biden administration won’t accelerate the time period to allow migrants to obtain employment.

“When it comes to these two proposed sites, the Mayor’s Office must establish a constant channel of communication with local leaders and neighborhood stakeholders through the creation of Community Advisory Boards for each location,” Richards said.

“The city must also leave no stone unturned to ensure the safety of all involved — both the surrounding communities and those housed at the sites alike — and ensure that there is adequate local transportation for our asylum seekers who need to travel elsewhere,” he added.

“Above all else, such a proposal is yet further proof that there is no more critical work ahead of us locally than the work of rapidly and significantly expanding our affordable housing stock.”

They could just arrest the migrants and turn them over for deportation.

    Arizona wanted to just inform the feral government of illegals eligible for deportation and Barky and Mexico colluded to take Arizona to court over that. It went to the SCOTUS and America lost. Big time. The SCOTUS somehow found that the Executive branch gets to choose which laws they will enforce and it is “illegal” for Arizona to inform the feds of laws being broken if the feds have declared that they don’t recognize those laws “at the moment”, Constitution and invasion and such notwithstanding.

      Lucifer Morningstar in reply to ThePrimordialOrderedPair. | July 17, 2023 at 8:44 pm

      That’s fine. If that is the SCOTUS decision then Arizona officials simply need to round up all the illegals and transport them back to and over the Southern border back into Mexico. The illegals got here that way they can be returned that way.

      Not exactly. AZ wasn’t simply informing the Feds ‘hey, we got a guy down at the jail we picked for X and when we ran a check he comes back with an immigration detain so can y’all come get him?

      The CT ruled that the Fed govt has the ‘prosecutorial discretion’ to prioritize which immigration violations they prosecute and AZ couldn’t usurp the Fed govt role in enforcement of immigration laws.

      FWIW I disagree with the decision as it relates to immigration b/c the Constitution grants Fed govt exclusive jurisdiction over Naturalization which is a distinct thing from immigration. Related and interconnected? Sure, but still distinct things. Especially when the Constitution is silent on immigration so the 10th Amendment would then apply. (Someday we will get the 10th amendment back into relevance).

I don’t get it. Why does NYC want to “Shelter” the illegals? How long are they going to provide for their welfare? What is the end game? Without a green card, they cannot work so why are they here? Does anyone have any answeres to these simple questions?

    Dolce Far Niente in reply to inspectorudy. | July 18, 2023 at 9:55 am

    ” Without a green card, they cannot work so why are they here? ” I can’t believe you wrote that with a straight face.

    Illegals are adept at milking state benefits, as well as working for cash in a variety of jobs once held by Americans. Employers have no fear of being prosecuted for hiring them, so the green card is irrelevant.

    These “migrant” people (not 100%, perhaps, but the vast majority) are not here because they are yearning to be Americans, but are here looking for ways to make money, whether it be by SSI fraud for multiple imaginary children, working construction or working for the cartels.

Sounds like NYC has plenty of space for illegal aliens. Gov. Abbot, Gov. Desantis start shipping them more busloads.

American settlers used to travel the Oregon trail, the Santa Fe trail trail and the California trail. They came on foot, on horseback and in covered wagons. They battled wild animals, starvation, freezing cold and burning deserts.

Now illegal invaders get on a bus at Nogales and ride in comfort to NYC where they are taken care of for free by the government. They battle each other to see who gets in the front of the line.

    The Catholic Church is making hundreds of millions of dollars if not billions from us

    It’s a scam

    There’s mucho child trafficking

    And our government is in on it

    henrybowman in reply to Paula. | July 18, 2023 at 12:55 am

    I’m more interested in how they get to Nogales from where they start.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair | July 17, 2023 at 6:25 pm

The only places illegals should be sheltered is in jail or in some third world s***hole outside of the country, where they belong. And their home nations should be billed for the cost of dealing with them (along with Mexico, which invites them in and pushes them through the border in an act of war against us.

Meanwhile, every politician that supports the invasion of illegals is a traitor and needs to be arrested, charged with treason, and held over for trial (in a year or two or three or whenever we get around to it) along with having all of their and their families’ assets seized.

And then what? Yankee Stadium? I know, we can house on the shoulder of the Belt Parkway.

    Yeah, I like how when they are arrested for a crime the media reports, “New York man arrested for such and such.”

Welcome to the Central Park Tent City!!

Remember Occupy Wall Street? Do that again!!

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Dimsdale. | July 17, 2023 at 8:41 pm

    Welcome to the Central Park Tent Projects! Where Adams can stuff all those inconvenient illegals that are appearing in his city in high-density living structures. Even if they’re un-air conditioned/unheated tents.

    The illegals are just going to love that.

VaGentleman | July 17, 2023 at 7:35 pm

A tent city in Chappaqua sounds like a great solution.

If you think the past 3 years of open borders has been bad… if Joe gets reinstalled it will be 10x worse without even the supposed threat of a so called re-election campaign and over 75% of Americans angry as hell about the invasion. Try another 50 million… there won’t be a county in America not struggling. There will be no coming back. No culture can survive that kind of attack.., there will be no assimilation… because no American culture left to assimilate to. But hey… it’s looking like that’s the plan anyway

All this says to me is that those red State governors keep sending more and more of them in an accelerating fashion.

Sheltering migrants and paying stupid people who can’t pass a teachers’ exam costs a lot of money. When is NY legislature going to propose huge tax increases to cover this?

E Howard Hunt | July 18, 2023 at 10:29 am

Since they’re all entitled to drivers’ licenses, why not give them all free cars so they become Uber drivers? That way they can rape, kill and steal more effectively.

CaliforniaJimbo | July 18, 2023 at 11:00 am

Time to house the illegals where it will affect the left the most. Suggestions include:
The metropolitan opera house
The Hampton in Long Island
Javitz center
Grand central station
Museum of natural history

Wouldn’t it make more sense to just secure the border? Once they cross over it becomes massive ongoing burden on communities in perpetuity.

    Peabody in reply to smooth. | July 18, 2023 at 12:05 pm

    Yes, that would make sense, but that is not the subject we are discussing. The subject we are discussing is “Stupid things that make no sense.”

    VaGentleman in reply to smooth. | July 18, 2023 at 3:13 pm

    If policies had to make sense, progressivism would die out overnight.
