Several protesters on Staten Island were arrested Tuesday night after attempting to prevent newly arrived migrants from entering a shelter outside a former senior facility in Midland Beach.

Protesters yelled “take them back” at an MTA bus carrying adults and children.

While the Adams administration has provided shelter for more than 113,000 migrants who’ve come to the city since April 2022, many migrants face an uncertain future without the ability to work or obtain long-term housing.

Asylum seekers have to go through a months-long process before obtaining a work permit.

For months, city and state officials have been pushing the federal government to expedite that process.

Tyler Anbinder, a history professor at George Washington University and author of “City of Dreams: the 400-Year Epic History of Immigrant New York,” joined NY1 political anchor Errol Louis on “Inside City Hall” Wednesday to talk about the history of immigration in New York City.
