SUNY Buffalo State Evicts Migrants Over Student Safety Concerns

Objectivity 4.4 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

SUNY Buffalo State University is evicting 44 migrants from dorms due to parental concerns over student safety. A local community group had placed the migrants at the school, but an abrupt cancellation followed sexual-assault charges against two of the migrants who were bused from New York City. The migrants were initially placed in dorms from May to August due to full shelters, but the local community group sought an extension until February.  The school president said he wants to ensure a conducive learning environment for students, but the founder of the group criticized the school’s move as discriminatory. Of the 44, 32 are from Africa, while the rest are from Colombia, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and Iraq.
