Some of the more than 65,000 migrants in New York City's shelter system will be evicted Wednesday, according to Mayor Eric Adams' administration.
The administration is now enforcing its 30-day and 60-day shelter rule. Between May 22 and May 26, 250 migrant shelter notices will expire.
The asylum seekers will not have the ability to reapply unless there is an extenuating circumstance. This includes an immigration hearing, appearance within 30 days or if they have shown significant effort to resettle.
The mayor says this has been a humanitarian crisis. Adult migrants will be offered resource guides as well as exit planning throughout their stay in the shelter.
