Judge Signs Temporary Restraining Order, Vacate Order For Housing Migrants At St. John Villa On Staten Island


Malliotakis Statement on Temporary Restraining Order and the Vacate Order at St. Johns Villa

(STATEN ISLAND, NY) – Today Congresswoman Malliotakis (NY-11) released the following statement regarding Judge Wayne Ozzi signing the temporary restraining order and subsequent vacate order at St. Johns Villa.

“Just as the City was unloading the migrant buses at St. John’s Villa on Staten Island, Judge Wayne Ozzi responded to our lawsuit by signing the temporary restraining order and vacate order which halts the migrants from being housed at this location. Hopefully, the Mayor and Governor will realize that their citizens also have rights.

This is only the beginning of all legal remedies that I and our local elected leaders are prepared to take as we vigorously pursue every angle possible to stop this injustice to our taxpaying constituents who cannot and should not bear the burden of President Biden’s, Governor Hochul’s, and Mayor Adams’ failures.”

The next hearing is scheduled for September 7.
