Plans are reportedly being made to implement curfews for migrants residing in municipal shelters in New York municipal.
This is the most recent endeavor to alleviate the effects of the migrant crisis which has rocked the city in recent months, specifically the alleged door-to-door begging for food and cash by asylum seekers.
This latest development follows the controversies surrounding the tents at Floyd Bennett Field, which were deemed unsuitable for families by many.
Residents of the adjacent communities have reported seeing migrants beg for food, clothing, money, and baby strollers while knocking on doors.
Currently, migrants have unrestricted access to and from remote sanctuary locations; however, their movement is regulated by buses.
“We’ve been seeing an uptick in crimes committed by the migrants throughout the city, and a lot of migrants go into communities begging for money at doorsteps,” Queens Councilwoman Joann Ariola said during a recent meeting.
As the administration considers curfew orders, city shelters continue to accommodate approximately 69,000 migrants.
