The first group of migrants to arrive at a newly opened New York City shelter this weekend refused to stay and instead demanded better accommodations from the city, the New York Post reported.
On Sunday, the city bused a group of migrants to Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. The airfield was recently converted into a makeshift tent city by Democratic Governor Eric Adams' administration to provide additional housing to the more than 65,000 migrants using the city's overwhelmed shelter system.
The Post reported that the first busload of migrants who arrived at the airfield Sunday afternoon refused to stay.
One individual told the news outlet, "We weren't told where we were going."
