New York City is converting the world’s tallest Holiday Inn hotel into the Big Apple’s sixth mega-shelter for its surging migrant population, Mayor Eric Adams announced Tuesday. The deal will supply 492 rooms for adult families and single women, Adams said in a statement. “With more than 44,000 asylum seekers arriving in the last 10 months alone, we have helped provide shelter and support to nearly as many asylum seekers as the number of New Yorkers we already had in our shelter system when we first came into office,” he said. Terms of the contract weren’t announced, but The Post


Must be nice - a free hotel room on Wall Street.

Interesting, they have homeless citizens sleeping on the streets yet they house the invaders. What is wrong with this picture? Just like the invaders could go all over USA not vaccinated nor tested during covid scare while Americans where losing jobs because they refused the shot. There really is something wrong with this regime, also the press for being so complicate in this show.

How would stone broke Americans be treated in Mexico, Uruguay, Nicaragua or any other South American country? Do you think they would feed and shelter us?

All on the taxpayers dime. Think about it. Illiterates, with zero job skills, come to America to fulfill their life long dream. A dream to retire at a young age in a country they know nothing about, but will be given free housing, food, clothing and free health care along with a cell phone to call home. Gotta love it. The destruction of a once great country, right before your eyes and nothing is done about it. It's a replay Cuba and Venezuela, two once great countries destroyed by the communist lies we are hearing again today. Instead of Castro and Hugo Chavez we are fed the lies by Biden, Obama and Soros. And people still don't get it. Wake up already.

Will they have to tear it down and rebuild after every room in the place gets utterly trashed and the walls torn out? I bet Holiday Inn doesn't have Joe Walsh's accountant to pay for it all.

This is exactly what happened - - in 1889 - - when my grandparents came here from southern Italy. They were illiterate and impoverished- - but the city rolled out the red carpet - - put them into a swanky hotel - - fed them - - clothed them - - gave them medical care - - gave them money - - gave them jobs. Yes - - that's EXACTLY what happened. History repeats itself!

Sooooo while we Americans are being stopped, fined, or jailed for all kinds of civil violations, illegals can cross the border and receive this treatment? This is all about our civil processes. If these people are able to come over the border and shortcut the correct process, there is a problem. When people like this mayor provide this kind of treatment, they are aiding and abetting an illegal civil process. Yet, Democrats will stop, fine, jail anyone who dares cross the line of civility with themselves. True hypocrisy.

How much do you want to bet this hotel is owned by Democrat contributors, was underbooked and in need of repair, and the contract includes money for complete renovations after the illegals are finished trashing it? They take money from NY taxpayers, give it to illegals, who give it to Democrats. You get what you vote for NY.

Why has the 101% politically partisan Biden and the leftist Democrats instituted their unlawful “open borders” and “catch and release” initiatives in the first place along the borderline to flood the USA with as many poor and uneducated illegal aliens as possible from the so-called Third World who fit within the minority group categories of Democrat identity politics? Biden and the leftist Democrats are disingenuously calling the millions of illegal aliens they are allowing to unlawfully enter the USA in violation of the immigration laws irregular migrants and asylum seekers, obviously to mislead the American people. Even though Biden and the leftist Democrats absolutely know that well over 90% of the illegal aliens, who Biden and the leftist Democrats call asylum seekers, and who Biden and the leftist Democrats have facilitated unlawful entry to the USA by the millions, that based upon past similar asylum cases handled in the immigration courts over many years, have never been found to have a legitimate asylum claim under the asylum laws, and are in effect simply illegal aliens who came to the USA for personal economic purposes to unlawfully get hired to American jobs while sojourning illegally in the USA. Chances are once in the interior of the USA most of the illegal aliens (migrants) will never file applications for asylum and will disappear into the vast and growing illegal alien populations in sanctuary cities and other localities run by the leftist Democrats to await what they are being told by leftist and socialist Democrat activists will amount to future leftist Democrat amnesty and legalization programs that will grant them U.S. citizenship and allow them to bring their foreign extended families into the USA. Last night in his State of the Union speech, Biden demanded that the Congress pass his so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” bill that includes massive Democrat designed “path to citizenship” series of amnesty and legalization programs that if fully implemented would grant an immediate legal immigration status to just about the entire illegal alien population, that clearly exceeds 20 million mostly poor and uneducated third world origin people, who the leftist Democrats believe are bound to embrace the leftist and socialist Democrat political agenda, and become future leftist and socialist Democrat supporters, and voters, by the tens of millions keeping the leftist Democrats in controlling political power permanently. Essentially the leftist Democrats are angling to effectively permanently change both the electoral and racial demographics of the USA to what the leftist Democrats believe will be to their great political favor, and thus sending the wimpy Republicans into long-term political oblivion. In return Biden and the leftist Democrats will disingenuously promise to support borderline security sometime in the future, a promise that the leftist Democrats will never carry out just as they did not back after the huge 1986 amnesty, and that’s why there are so many millions of illegal aliens in the USA these days.

You can pretty much see how this is going to turn out. They will set up a tenants union, bring their relatives in and establish a permanent low income housing unit. They will never leave and on top of that demand food and healthcare services. Basically they have created an instant ghetto. Good luck to the local businesses and schools. And as far as local residents- too bad about the drop in your property values. Yes Biden did this on purpose.

A massive hotel owned by a Chinese company...driven into bankruptcy by NYC govt decision regarding covid shutdowns, that couldn't book rooms at $100night, gets a full occupancy contract at $200 per night from the NYC Govt. To fulfill the NYC Govt offer of all expenses paid sanctuary to any and all peoples willing to break the Law to get there. Added to the 3star and fourstar hotels already guaranteed full bookings at $400-$500 per room per night. Dem mayor tried blaming Tex/Fla governors for sending them...then it was revealed most were sent by Dem Mayors/Governors and the Bi-Dem administration.

Let's see...... 44,000 Illegals in a city of 8,000,000. That works out to something like 1 illegal for every 182 residents. Not so high a number compared to what the towns in Texas are enduring. Oh, that's right...... Years ago, New Yawk City and New Yawk State declared themselves a Sanctuary City and a Sanctuary State, thus hanging out the 'Welcome Illegals' sign, nice and big. Well, you got what you wanted, got what you voted for. You made your bed, now you get to lay down in it.
