    Half of New York hotel rooms now occupied by asylum seekers

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/travel/ne...y-asylum-seekers/ar-AA1bijYY?ocid=hplocalnews

    excerpt:
    More buses arrived Wednesday. The latest arrivals are in addition to 4,300 migrants arriving in the last week according to the city as it scrambles to find more temporary shelters.

    Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services Anne Williams-Isom said during a press conference that using school gyms was always a short term plan, and insisted it is not a reversal in strategy.

    "I'm not reversing strategy, the strategy was to have short term sites for emergency respite," Williams-Isom said. "We always meant that people would move to another site when that became available, we are very consistent with our strategy and our planning and continue to do that so I can assure that nobody sleeps on the streets of NYC."

    She said the city will continue to have emergency sites.

    Meanwhile NYC Mayor Eric Adams said 50% of city hotel rooms are currently filled by asylum seekers -- and the city is having a hard time finding any other room at hotels for them.


    "Almost 50% of those hotel rooms are being taken up by migrant asylum seekers, that we're paying for," Adams said. "So instead of money coming from people who are visiting us and spending and our tourism and our Broadway plays, instead of them using those hotels, we are using those hotels."

    He said the city has reached out to hotels and many say they don't want to get into the shelter business.

    "Many of them are going to price points that is just too high for tax payers to pay," Adams said. "Many of them are not suitable for housing or migrants."

    It was also asked at the Wednesday afternoon press conference if counties other than Orange and Rockland had been eyed for sending asylum seekers.

    "We're looking at every single county," she said when pressed why Long Island's Nassau and Suffolk counties hadn't yet had migrants bused to them.​

    Theres no crisis at the border so now you're pivoting to posting money laundering schemes by Adams. Theres somehow 4k people coming into the county a day but somehow a quarter of them are ending up in NYC. Give me a break. Mayor adams is a crook and hes money laundering FEMA money. Mark my words.

    The government manipulates numbers to meet funding criteria? I don't believe it. How could any government official be dishonest? This sounds like a conspiracy theory.

    You do know there was 50-60k migrants coming across border under trump as well right? This is the best fear mongering that you have? These exaxt same videos existed under trump as well

    None of these folks in the video will be allowed to stay in the country. It's funny how you forget this point. Your fear mongering is so pathetic.

    The border is more closed today than it was under trump.

    I’m largely neutral about Adams but the numbers could still make sense.
    The people coming to the border aren’t instantaneously ending up in NYC. The surge in NYC very likely is people who arrived here several days or even weeks ago.

    @Astrodome @Commodore brainwashed MAGA who were spewing open border conspiracies look like idiots now. Crossings down 65%........

    Border numbers are literally close to trumps now. What a difference policy makes. The people here spinning conspiracies look like idiots again just like the Hunter thread

    That is a long way to come - these are people that obviously have a strong survival instinct and want a better quality of life. I am not even sure how they make the trip, I would guess by plane to a country that has good relations with the PRC and then they walk across multiple country boundaries, and risk being assaulted, robbed etc. to eventually make it into the USA. They are not "spies" or sympathetic to the PRC if they are willing to make such a dangerous and long journey. I hope that they are granted asylum.
