Migrant Crisis in New York it never stops for a day. On Tuesday, April 16, more than 1000 people gathered at New York City Hall. According to Daily Mail, the City Board of Supervisors held hearings that day on the problems of black settlers.

Most of the participants were from Haiti, Guinea and West Africa. They wanted more help, better shelters and work permits. Only 250 people were invited to the hearing, but hundreds of other migrants gathered in a park across the street.

City Councilwoman Alexa Aviles, who chairs the immigration committee, organized the hearing to hear testimony from undocumented African migrants being held in city shelters.

“We must root out the anti-Blackness that plagues our systems of care. This work requires dedication, creativity and a city willing to fund our short, medium and long-term needs,” Aviles said.

Problems of black migrants

The City Council's Immigration Committee and Hospital Committee held joint hearings to "understand how the Adams administration is addressing issues of language access, cultural competency, health care needs and other barriers faced by new immigrants."

On the subject: Where can migrants get help in New York?

Before hearing testimony, committee members heard from activists whose work aims to provide services to African migrants.

The hearing is expected to introduce legislation that would require the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP), in conjunction with the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA), to survey newly arrived migrants and asylum seekers. This will help collect data on their skills, economic prospects and barriers to employment.

Migrant Crisis

New York City Mayor Eric Adams criticized Biden administration for influx of immigrants in cities of refuge. He called the problem “one of the largest humanitarian crises the city has ever faced.”

The city has already received more than 175 migrants and is currently trying to accommodate 000 by limiting their stay in a shelter 30 daysto reduce overflow.

Adams estimates the city will spend $12 billion over the next three years to cope with the influx of migrants. For this purpose, large-scale shelters will be created, hotels will be rented, and various government services will be provided to migrants.
