Orange County is now expecting more busloads of migrant men at a second hotel after county officials say at least 70 more asylum seekers arrived over the weekend.
News 12 saw police, security and case workers at the Ramada on Route 300 Monday afternoon. Supporters were there holding signs. A staffed table was set up inside the hotel lobby, alongside a welcome sign in several languages.
County Executive Steve Neuhaus says the hotel has been on "standby" since Sunday for additional busloads of migrants from New York City.
“It’s a really poorly rolled out plan and it has a recipe for some major problems," said Neuhaus.
The top county officials say there’s now more than 130 migrant men that are sheltered nearby at the Crossroads hotel after at least two more busloads of asylum-seekers were brought in over the weekend.
A Supreme Court ruling is expected this week on Orange County's request for a restraining order to prevent more New York City migrants from coming in. The Town of Newburgh and county are suing the city and both hotels for breaking an executive order, prohibiting hotels from housing asylum seekers and alleging that the city-funded shelters are illegal.
“There’s a right way of doing this, and not knowing who these individuals are not knowing where they’re going, how long they’re staying what their status is - is disturbing to us," said Neuhaus.
Neuhaus says the rooms at both hotels are booked until January.
