Migrant crisis | Mayor Adams rolls out new city office for asylum seekers, 24/7 arrival center in action plan ‘blueprint’


With the city’s migrant crisis about to hit a new milestone, Mayor Eric Adams unveiled on Tuesday a “blueprint” for tackling the situation, including creating a new cabinet-level office and opening a new 24/7 arrival center.

Adams said the plan, titled “The Road Forward: Blueprint to Address New York City’s Response to the Asylum Seeker Crisis,” also includes training migrants to work when their authorizations are granted by the federal government and helping them resettle in other municipalities in New York state and across the country.
