Paladino applauds city for reversing course on housing migrants in College Point


Queens Councilwoman Vickie Paladino issued a statement Monday, Aug. 29, praising the decision made by Mayor Eric Adams’ office not to house migrants bused in from Texas in a College Point hotel. The mayor’s office reversed course on the matter shortly just a few days after Paladino issued a statement Friday criticizing the housing of migrants in College Point.

Prior to the decision being reversed, Paladino said she intended to meet with the appropriate authorities and stakeholders over the weekend. With the College Point hotel idea now off the table, the city is currently exploring other options in how to deal with the migrants being bused from Texas.
