A bus of 40 migrants has arrived in Albany, Mayor Kathy Sheehan’s office said.

The migrants arrived last night, said Sheehan, and are staying at the Ramada Inn on Watervliet Avenue Extension in Albany.

The city says they will work to make sure New York City provides the migrants with basic food and necessities.

“While we suggested several other hotels within the City of Albany, New York City has decided to contract with the Ramada Inn on Watervliet Avenue in Albany. The City of Albany’s committed community partners will work to ensure New York City provides these asylum seekers with food, shelter, everyday necessities, and the services they may need,” Sheehan said in a statement.

This follows a bus of migrants that arrived at the SureStay Hotel in Colonie over the weekend.
