THe Adama Administration Is Considering Housing Immigrants In Tiny Houses & Tents In Central Park

Heard this on the local news today

“Tents, tiny homes in Central Park could house asylum seekers, internal document suggests, according to City Hall sources

By Doug Williams, Marcia Kramer

NEW YORK -- Tents and small houses in Central Park may be used to temporarily shelter asylum seekers in New York City, CBS2 has learned.

City Hall sources said the plan, outlined in an internal document, could be implemented if border towns continue sending asylum seekers and hotel space runs out.

As it is, the city's latest temporary housing solution is unpopular with some in the NYPD. That's because the police academy in Manhattan is now sheltering migrants, raising security concerns.

Video from Thursday night shows asylum seekers getting off buses on the East Side and entering the latest temporary migrant shelter, the former police academy, where the city says they're expected to house hundreds for a short period.“

And what is up with the wacky housing ideas, first from Hochul and now from Adams?

but I'm sure they are up against it with this. 900 people are arriving every morning and add that to our already homeless and it becomes more than a giant of a problem. I keep hearing they are going to use the empty office buildings and turn them into apartments but so far nada. The feds need to help. Take the Fed money from Abbott for starters.

And where is Schumer? We're getting very little money from the Feds for this...they all need to do better.

And wasting more money on housing ideas that don't work is not the answer.
