Illegal Aliens Take Over Manhattan Luxury Hotel, Leaving Taxpayers Footing the Bill

NEW YORK, U.S.- JANUARY 29: A view from the surroundings of Watson Hotel in Manhattan, New York, United States on January 29, 2023. New York City started moving asylum seekers out of their shelter, the Watson Hotel in Manhattan while many asylum seekers are refusing transfers from the hotel to the ferry terminal at Red Hook, Brooklyn, and they slept outside of the hotel at night.

It’s no secret that Democrats, especially in cities like New York, are more concerned with catering to illegal aliens than they are with protecting the rights and interests of American citizens. This latest example of illegal aliens being housed in a luxury Manhattan hotel at the taxpayers’ expense, and then refusing to leave, is a prime example of the Democrats’ disregard for the American people.

The illegal aliens, who were brought to New York City on buses from Texas, are now camping outside the Watson Hotel in Hell’s Kitchen, refusing to move to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal where Mayor Eric Adams has set up a massive shelter for new arrivals. These illegal aliens are not only demanding free housing, they are also demanding the city “cancel rent” and provide them with “permanent homes.” This entitlement mentality is a direct result of the Democrats’ open borders policies and the Biden administration’s failure to secure our southern border.

The housing demands of these illegal aliens come at a time when New Yorkers, especially the working and middle class, are struggling with sky-high rents and home prices that are pushing many out of the city and the state altogether. This is a direct result of the Democrats’ immigration policies that are driving up the population and, in turn, driving up housing prices.

It’s no secret that real estate investors are some of the biggest beneficiaries of mass immigration to the United States. A 2017 study published in the Journal of Housing Economics found that “increases in immigration into a metropolitan statistical area are linked with rising rents and home prices in that metropolitan statistical area and neighboring metropolitan statistical areas.” So, not only are the Democrats’ immigration policies negatively impacting American citizens, but they are also lining the pockets of wealthy real estate investors.

What’s even more outrageous is the silence of Republicans in Congress who represent New York. Representatives like Elise Stefanik, Claudia Tenney, Nick Langworthy, Marc Molinaro, Nicole Malliotakis, Andrew Garbarino, Anthony D’Esposito, and Nick LaLota should be speaking out and fighting against the Democrats’ dangerous immigration policies that are hurting their constituents.

In conclusion, the Democrats’ open borders policies are not only a threat to our national security, but they are also a threat to the livelihoods of American citizens. It’s time for Republicans to stand up and fight for the rights and interests of the American people and put an end to the Democrats’ dangerous immigration policies.
