Anti-migrant protests provide Republican governors with the unrest they seek, NYC public advocate says


As more protests continue to rage across the Big Apple over the placement of migrant shelters, Public Advocate Jumaane Williams told amNewYork Metro that he believes that the demonstrations are playing right into the hands of the Republican governors who sent them here.

Williams made his comments on the same day that a thousand Staten Islanders were holding a rally outside St. John Villa Academy in Arrocharon, which is set to house adult male asylum seekers. Bringing picket signs and harsh words for the city’s newest arrivals, locals stated that they are furious that migrants will be placed adjacent to Saint Joseph Hill Academy High School.
