In August 2023, New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced Randall’s Island as a new tax-payer funded tent city for illegal migrants.
The illegal-migrant haven has a capacity for 57,000 migrants.
New York City has more than 50,000 migrants in its shelter system in what has become one of the most publicized migrant crises on the East Coast.
Adams recently said that the sanctuary city has “run out of room” for new migrants and even called a “state of emergency” in the city to battle the crisis.
