Overwhelmed by busloads of migrants from Texas arriving in New York City, city officials are unable to provide an intake center and hotel rooms.  Josh Goldfein, a lawyer with the homeless rights advocacy division at Legal Aid said, “We were already facing a crisis of homelessness in New York City when the flow of these migrant families started in earnest.”  “If [Adams] can’t find a place for [the migrants] to go, it looks like he can’t manage. Throw it on top of the crime pile, and it looks like he can’t control the city” political consultant Hank Sheinkopf said of Mayor Eric Adams.
