New Tent Cities Could Pop Up In NYC As Mayor Removes Homeless Migrants From Shelters

Due to the extensive shelter system in New York City, the vast majority of the city’s homeless population spent years indoors, generally hidden from the public and provided with much-needed protection from inclement weather.

Advocates are now cautioning that, as winter approaches the Northeast, things may start to change quickly.

One thing unites the nation’s largest city’s mayor and some of his most outspoken detractors: more homeless migrants will soon be camped out on New York City’s streets, on subway cars, and in other inappropriate places for human habitation.

According to Mayor Eric Adams, more than 125,000 foreign nationals have arrived in New York since last spring, with over half of them staying in shelters. According to immigrant advocates, many were bussed from the southern U.S. border by Republican governors and might not have any links in the city. The number of asylum seekers is overwhelming the city’s shelter system, according to nonprofit employees and local authorities. This is on top of a housing affordability and homelessness issue that has been building for decades.

“I want to be honest with New Yorkers: You’re going to see the visual of running out of room,” Adams said in October. “It’s not if, it’s when. People are going to be sleeping on our streets.”

According to the mayor’s administration, since July, 21,000 migrants in shelters—including families with children—have received reminders to leave because there is no longer room. Families of migrants are given 60 days’ notice to vacate shelters, whereas individual migrants are given 30 days. Fall has arrived, and as autumn has grown, so too has the policy’s application.

Policymakers and homeless groups have long championed a unique right to shelter in the city, arguing that it saves lives and that the new time limits on shelter stays violate that right.

8,400 of the migrants who have already received notices have notices that have expired, which means that their 30- or 60-day period is up. As a result, they must leave the shelter, go back to the migrant processing facility, and request—though this is not guaranteed—a different shelter space.

Housing advocates told USA TODAY that the process has already caused uncertainty and mayhem, with some people believing they would have to leave the shelter system and go back to the streets. The mayor’s office reports that the majority of those who exceeded their time restriction have not gone back to shelters and that undocumented migrants will not be able to pay their own rent.

Advocates are now cautioning that, as winter approaches the Northeast, things may start to change quickly.

“People will be on the street. For the first time in almost 50 years, we will see children on the street. It is simply not acceptable,” said Christine Quinn, CEO of the homeless shelter Win NYC and former speaker of the New York City Council.
