City Hall expressed deep regret over the event, labeling it a tragedy, and emphasized the need to reinforce security measures to ensure the safety of migrants within the premises.

“The incident that happened at our Randall’s Island humanitarian relief center is a tragedy and is currently under investigation. At least one alleged person responsible is currently in custody, and our security, who acted admirably and professionally in this incredibly difficult situation, is redoubling their efforts to ensure that everyone on site continues to be and feels safe. The overwhelming majority of migrants in our care came to our city in search of a better life and the American Dream. The small number of those disrupting that journey for the rest of the migrants in our care by acting violently will face enforcement to the fullest extent of the law,” a spokesperson from City Hall stated on Sunday.

The spokesperson highlighted the majority of migrants seeking a better life but condemned the few individuals causing disruption, promising strict legal repercussions for violent behavior. 

Officials continue their investigation into the tragic event, aiming to uphold safety and security for all inhabitants of the center.

Efforts to provide a secure environment for migrants residing in the center are being renewed, with authorities focusing on ensuring such incidents do not recur, acknowledging the center’s role as a place of refuge for those seeking a better life.
