(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) A group of illegal immigrants has taken up refuge and refused to leave a hotel in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan.
The illegal immigrants have been housed at the Watson Hotel, but the single men were to be transferred to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, which is set to house over 1000 immigrants in the coming weeks, Fox News reported. However, many refused to go altogether, with the aid and encouragement of a number of Left-wing activists.
When the bus arrived, only a small number of illegal immigrants complied. Over a dozen cops were stationed at the Watson for crowd control as the activist crowd surged.
“They feel that it’s not livable,” said Valerie, an activist who did not tell reporters her last name. “The hotel won’t let them in so they’re planning to sleep here.”
“This weekend, we began the process of moving single adults males form the Watson Hotel to Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, as we transition the hotel to meet the large number of asylum seeking families with children,” Democrat Mayor Eric Adams’s office wrote, reassuring the general public that the illegal immigrants would receive only the best of treatment.
“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 was planned. We remain in serious need of support from both our state and federal governments.”
Per the report, the city has had to house over 42,000 new immigrants since last spring alone as the city has been hit hard by a wave of Biden-sponsored illegal immigration.
Things are so bad that Adams even visited the border earlier this month, calling the situation a “crisis.”
