‘Bring back our seniors’: Staten Islanders angry over migrant shelter where residents displaced, safety issues remain

Nearly 100 Staten Island residents protested on Friday to shut down a migrant shelter in the borough’s Midland Beach neighborhood, vocalizing their anger and frustration over an ongoing community issue rife with controversy that has been making headlines for months. 

Community activists Scott LoBaido and John Tabacco organized the rally after a group of local elected officials said in a letter to city and state officials this week that the shelter is operating in violation of multiple city codes.
