Cops show after NYC migrants protest, REFUSE to leave hotel for new Brooklyn location

So-called “asylum seekers” showed themselves to be the illegal squatters they are Sunday night in New York City as many single males refused another relocation by Mayor Eric Adams (D) after getting kicked out of their hotel accommodations, triggering a police response.

Unwilling to admit the detriments of declaring NYC a sanctuary city, Adams has continued to shuffle illegals from shelters to hotels and back again while begging for financial assistance at the state and federal levels. Hizzoner’s taxpayer-funded hospitality came to a head outside The Watson Hotel on West 57th Street when some of those aliens decided they were none-too-keen on vacating their swank setup for a cot down by the pier.

Local reporters and aid workers captured the scene outside the hotel as migrants demanded to be let inside after their temporary shelter had been reallocated to house families instead of individual illegals now being put up at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal.

Speaking with the New York Post, one aid worker named Valerie contended, “They feel that it’s not livable.”

“The hotel won’t let them in so they’re planning to sleep here,” she said as the men set up tents on the street outside the hotel and were provided food and drink from her organization.

In a statement from Adams’ spokesperson Fabien Levy, City Hall attempted to play victim and hero as they lamented the small fraction of the nearly 3 million illegals believed to have entered the United States in fiscal year 2022 who have come to New York while boasting of the amenities they are providing.

“More than 42,000 asylum seekers have arrived in New York City since last spring and we continue to surpass our moral obligations as we provide asylum seekers with shelter, food, health care, education, and a host of other services,” Levy’s statement read. “The facilities at Brooklyn Cruise Terminal will provide the same services as every other humanitarian relief center in the city, and the scheduled relocations to Brooklyn Cruise Terminal this weekend took place as planned. We remain in serious need of support from both our state and federal governments.”

So, too, did Adams boast of the city’s handling of the crisis as he said during a press conference, “People are sleeping on the streets in El Paso. They’re sleeping in airports. I spoke to my colleague in Chicago, people are sleeping in the basement of libraries. No family is sleeping on our streets.”

Just one of the many details the mayor left out was the fact that the illegals staying at the Watson Hotel, which as previously reported costs no less than $255 per night for a regular stay, had already been staying at a temporary shelter on Randall’s Island before that remote location was taken down because of lack of use. Apparently, the “fluff-and-fold laundry” services and access to video games and televisions didn’t compare to being a short walk from the heart of midtown Manhattan.

As Legal Aid Society’s Josh Goldfein told ABC 7, “Now they’re going to be moved to a building that was not designed for living that the city is gonna have to prepare for people to sleep in, and only for a short period of time. We’re gonna invest a lot of resources to get this building ready only to dismantle it again, I guess when cruise ships start coming in again.”

Meanwhile, Goldfein went on to point out that New Yorkers currently in shelters could make room for the illegals if only Adams would take the funds he’s wasting to provide those citizens with needed assistance.
