NYC Mayor Eric Adams reveals his solution for the migrant crisis… two refugee-style CAMPS filled with cot beds and white tents including one in the Bronx
- Eric Adams revealed plans to open two refugee-style camps for the thousands of incoming migrants
- One of the sites will be in Orchard Beach, in the Bronx, but the location of the second hasn’t been confirmed
- He claimed it proved his moral triumph over Texas and Florida, who he claims turned their backs on the issue
- The vast majority of the migrants say they want to come to New York, a sanctuary city where their chances of being turned in to ICE are slimmer
- Florida Gov. Ron de Santis and Texas’ Greg Abbott sent them duly north – to the outrage of Adams and others
- The Republicans say it calls the bluff of the rich liberal elite who claim to be pro-immigration without living through the true scale of the crisis
New York City Mayor Eric Adams has revealed his solution to the migrant crisis: opening two, refugee-style outdoor camps for them.
The mayor revealed the plans on Thursday along with photos of the planned relief sites, which resembled the type of tented landscapes often seen in war zones. One of the sites will be in Orchard Beach, in the Bronx. The location of the second site has not been confirmed.
In a press release on Thursday, Adams touted the plan as a victory and proof that he understands his ‘moral duty’ to the thousands of Venezuelan migrants currently arriving in New York City every week.
They are being sent on buses by the Republican governors of Texas and Florida who say it’s high time Democrats like Adams understood the true scale of the crisis and stopped advocating for an open-border policy.
Adams, claiming the sites will absolve the problem in New York, said in a press release on Thursday: ‘More than 100 years ago, Ellis Island opened its doors to welcome in those ‘yearning to breathe free.’
‘Now, more than ever, it’s clear that we are again dealing with a humanitarian crisis created by human hands. While other leaders have abdicated their moral duty to support arriving asylum seekers, New York City refuses to do so,’ he said.
An example of the type of site NYC Eric Adams plans to open to house the thousands of migrants arriving every day. One will go in the Bronx and a second location is yet to be confirmed. Adams claimed it as a moral victory. The tents include rows of beds with thin-looking sheets in an outdoor tent, just as winter approaches

In photos of an example site, cot beds are shown lined up in rows in the outdoor tent. Adams said they’d only stay there for up to ’96’ hours, then be moved on to their desired ‘settlement’ sites.
‘This is not an everyday homelessness crisis, but a humanitarian crisis that requires a different approach. That’s why the Humanitarian Emergency Response and Relief Centers will be the first touchpoint for asylum seekers that will provide them with a range of services and support as families determine their next steps.
‘This emergency response represents what we know must be done during this humanitarian crisis, as we continue to seek assistance from our federal and state partners to continue this work.
‘Like the generations that came to our city before, New York will provide the thousands now coming to our city with the foundation to build a better life,’ Adams said.
