Migrant crisis | Two state pols introduce bill to block ‘arbitrary’ NYC shelter stay limits

A pair of state lawmakers introduced legislation Monday aimed at outlawing the 30- and 60-day shelter stay limits which Mayor Eric Adams’ administration has used to bring down the population of migrants in its care.

The legislation, co-authored by Assemblymember Catalina Cruz (D-Queens) and state Sen. Brad Hoylman-Sigal (D-Manhattan) in partnership with the family shelter provider Win, would prohibit the use of limits on individual and family stays at both homeless shelters and emergency housing — according to a news release. It would also bar state and city agencies, municipalities and contracted providers from moving individuals out of shelter unless they are in “imminent danger.”
