We have no more room. We cannot continue to absorb tens of thousands of newcomers on our own without the help of the state and federal government.

Since April 2022, more than 90,000 migrants have come to New York City (NYC).

There is no guarantee we will be able to provide shelter and services to new arrivals.

Housing in NYC is very expensive.

The cost of food, transportation, and other necessities in NYC is the highest in the United States (U.S.).

Please consider another city as you make your decision about where to settle in the U.S.
