‘A slap in the face’: Migrant shelters in public schools infuriate parents


Students and parents of public school children are fuming over the placement of migrant families in their gymnasiums, marking a new area of strain as the city struggles to house newcomers.

One such gym at a school building in Williamsburg, which houses P.S. 17 and M.S. 577, has been converted into a makeshift shelter for migrants — and parents took to the streets in protest on Tuesday.
