Border crossers, who arrived in New York City on buses from Texas, are refusing to leave a luxury Manhattan hotel that city officials had placed them in.
Over the weekend, city officials sought to move migrants out of the Watson Hotel in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan and to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal where Mayor Eric Adams has constructed a massive shelter for new arrivals.
Many of the border crossers staying at the Watson Hotel, paid for by taxpayers, are refusing to leave and have instead set up a homeless encampment outside the hotel. There, they are demanding the city “cancel rent” and provide them with “permanent homes.”
Some open borders activists, assisting the migrants, even suggested to ABC 7 News that new arrivals get placed in some of the city’s most expensive properties without charge.
Another sign posted by border crossers outside the Watson Hotel reads “no to discrimination towards immigrants” while one other reads “We need housing to sleep, we need help please.”
The housing demands come as New Yorkers, particularly working and middle class, grapple with exorbitant rents and skyrocketing home prices that have pushed many out of the city’s five boroughs and hundreds of thousands out of the state altogether.
Nearly 50,000 border crossers have been bused to New York City, a sanctuary jurisdiction, since the spring of last year. Those new arrivals will immediately begin competing for limited housing across the city, pushing the price of rent and homes way up for natives.
Real estate investors are some of the biggest beneficiaries of mass immigration to the United States. Immigration-driven population growth, set to bring the United States population to more than 400 million by 2060, is likely to send housing prices even higher.
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.”
Republicans in Congress representing New Yorkers — including Rep. Elise Stefanik, Claudia Tenney, Nick Langworthy, Marc Molinaro, Nicole Malliotakis, Andrew Garbarino, Anthony D’Esposito, and Nick LaLota — have been largely silent about the connection between mass immigration and housing costs. --73.215.xxx.xx

One thing never learned that in a rent controlled jurisdiction builders build condominiums not purpose built rental buildings as when a new apartment building is built there is a loss for ten years then 15 years to break even then 20 years major components have to be replaced. Here it costs considerably less to build a condomium building as building codes are less stringent. Here the population is expanding more then new housing construction. In the province of Alberta there is free market rent where there new rental construction along with conversion of existing structures to rentals as there are incentives to do that. Why is it where there is free market rent that rents are considerably lower then a rent controlled jurisdiction as tenants experience more supply then demand where rents are lower. More then likely the activists are demanding rental housing not the migrants themselves. --68.69.xxx.xxx

I found an illegal that removed my crawl space vent covers and made a home there. No one would go under the building to capture them. So I got the perfect intensive. A friends pet skunk, fitted with an LED collar and bell. He could see it coming and crawled out quickly, leaving their trash behind. The pet had it's stink glands removed, but no one told it so it likes to turn around, lift the tail and try to squirt. --47.149.xxx.x

Robert J, you have the most amazing stories and solutions.

I saw a piece about this same hotel recently on the news. They interviewed the services manager and others that worked there. Lots of horror stories, many of the staff were in fear of the people staying there. They were being threatened daily. Photos of a big room full of dumpster carts with piles of boxed lunches that were being trashed daily because they didn't like it, drug and alcohol parties going on at all hours, sex for hire routinely happening in the stairwells, huge piles of bags of donated clothes being discarded.
While NY isn't handling it well, they only have a drop in the bucket of the problem. We recently traveled down to Laredo and then on to South Padre on a highway that skirts the border all the way down. It is unrecognizable from 3-4 years ago, it looks worse than the worst slums of Juarez that we used to do mission trips to. That wasn't the most prosperous part of the country before but now it's probably worse than most inner city slums. Shantie villages outside of each town made from blue tarps, pallets, tires, and anything else they can get their hands on. --209.205.xxx.xx

The phrase "play stupid games, win stupid prizes" comes to mind.
Libs have long said that everyone deserves housing and all migrants should be let into the country. Well, how's that working out for ya, NYC?
Perhaps if enough moderates get fed up, maybe the administration will shift in the next election. --184.4.xx.xx

I heard Martha's Vineyard lost all their diversity recently. I am sure they would take a thousand or so in their endless generosity. --216.23.xxx.xx

I can appreciate someone wanting long term housing. Issue is on whose dime.
Everyone deserves a quality place to live. But you have to be able to afford this quality place. --24.101.xxx.xxx
