Migrants’ refusal to leave New York hotel sparked outrage: ‘Absolutely crazy’
The panel on ‘Outnumbered’ blamed the Biden administration’s lax immigration policy for the chaos that ensued in New York on Monday, as dozens of migrants were housed at US taxpayers’ expense in a hotel Manhattan chic refused to leave.
A group of illegal migrants who entered the United States through the southern border refuse to leave their free New York hotel rooms for a migrant shelter in Brooklyn, New York, sleeping rough in protest. The migrants were initially placed at the Watson Hotel in Midtown Manhattan, but their timeline for relocation to a new migrant rescue center, the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, caused uproar late Sunday night.
“It’s outrageous. I think it’s more to do with the fact that there will only be men [centers]”said host Brian Kilmeade. “They’re trying to break it up.”
Kilmeade alluded to earlier reports of migrants having sex in the hallways of The Row, one of New York’s best-known hotels, and drinking alcohol in the lobby. Trash bags filled with intact sandwiches provided to migrants were discovered there after migrants used unsafe cooking methods to prepare their own food in their hotel rooms.

“So they want to stop at the fraternity house, and they don’t want to go to Brooklyn [cruise port] for free, where they eat for free,” Kilmeade added.
“So I can’t believe the audacity of someone coming to our country illegally, taking a free bus to the number one city in the country, and then deciding what free accommodations they’re going to get. “
Co-host Rachel Campos Duffy recalled speaking with homeless people in New York months ago when the city used Randall’s Island – a large island in Hell Gate home to several sports fields and an establishment psychiatric – as a detention center for migrants.

Homeless people would have quickly taken the place of migrants at the center of Randall’s Island rather than typical homeless shelters, Campos-Duffy said.
“We don’t give priority to Americans. It’s absolutely insane. And by the way…yeah, everything looks bad next to a really nice downtown hotel. I’d like to stay there too,” said she points out.
The refusal of migrants to leave the New York hotel came amid reports of increased northern border crossings, particularly in the section between Plattsburgh, New York and Pittsburg, New Hampshire.

“It’s a misnomer when people say, ‘And now the crowds are coming from Canada.’ You know it’s ‘via’ [Canada]“said host Emily Compagno.
“Remember that on the southern border we had reports of over 150 countries represented by the millions of illegal immigrants who invade the southern border. Canada is no different, horribly illustrated by the fact that an entire Indian family froze to death on this ground, as did a Haitian.”
The Swanton area – centered in Vermont – saw twice as many illegal immigrants in a four-month period as in the previous two years, she reported.
