According to Spectrum News, a SUNY spokesperson said: "At Governor Hochul's direction, we are assessing whether there are SUNY resources available to help with the arrival of asylum seekers." Approximately, 500 hundred individuals will be put up in dorms until late summer. New York Governor Kathy Hochul seems to acknowledge the plan stops there. However, that won't stop things, as it was also that the announcement of the plan will come next week.

In an interview with Spectrum News, Governor Hochul said, "Clearly a SUNY campus lends itself to immediate help, but long-term, we have to have it free by August. So, what happens in August?" The Democrat from Buffalo wants to help New York City mayor and fellow Democrat, Eric Adam but seems to understand the challenge. "So these are the questions we're asking right now. We are looking at every possible property in the state of New York to help have a relief valve for the city of New York." The University at Albany, Stony Brook University and the University of Buffalo are the three campuses being focused on, according to the report.

The report by Spectrum News said that the governor said that the state is looking at more sites including campuses and “shuttered psychiatric facilities” as housing options. Several Republican state senators have challenged the SUNY housing plan for the migrants. A number of counties have enacted state-of-emergency procedures to deal with possible influxes of people to their communities. Few communities in New York, other than New York City, have the infrastructure to adapt an an instant increase of 500+ new residents. Where do these people go when the students return? Who will be impacted? How will the state assist with the aftermath? These are questions that don't appear to have answers.
