Migrant crisis | NYC will start assessing next month which single adult asylum seekers can stay in shelter after 30 days

Changes to the Big Apple’s right to shelter for newly arrived single adult migrants, agreed to in a legal settlement earlier this month, will take effect across the city’s entire shelter system in the middle of April, an official with Mayor Eric Adams’ administration said Thursday.

Deputy Mayor Anne Williams-Isom said assessments will take place on a case-by-case basis. First, the city will do a “small pilot” of the effort before expanding it to the whole network, she said.
