“As we are welcoming our students back to campus Tuesday, we wanted to ensure the best possible learning environment for our students and smooth functioning of our university operations.”
One local doctor is claiming this is all about discrimination.

Migrants evicted from SUNY Buffalo dorms over safety worries; local doctor cries ‘discrimination’
Buffalo State University (SUNY Buffalo) is canceling a months-old agreement made with a local community center to house 44 undocumented migrants in its dorms, citing safety concerns.
According to the New York Post, university officials noted that parents were concerned about reports of sexual assault regarding a pair of migrants who had been bused in from New York City.
Buffalo State Interim President Bonia Durand said in a statement “As we are welcoming our students back to campus Tuesday, we wanted to ensure the best possible learning environment for our students and smooth functioning of our university operations.”
The school’s agreement with the Jericho Road Community Health Center was made in May. The university had allowed the migrants to stay in its dorms due to the center being filled to capacity.
Jericho Road CEO Dr. Myron Glick (pictured) said Buffalo State’s decision was unfair as it was based on the misdeeds of others “to whom they have no connections,” Buffalo News reports.
“We live in a community where there’s prejudice,” Glick said. “And this decision was made, really, in my opinion, as – what’s the right word? – in reaction to that prejudice.”
“I felt compelled to speak about this action by Buffalo State because it was discriminatory against these asylum seekers who are human beings just like you and me,” Glick added. “We do worse by the families we are serving if we don’t speak up for them.”
