As you may recall, one part of New York City’s brilliant plan to deal with the flood of illegal migrants being shipped to the Big Apple from our open southern border was to commandeer some of the city’s pricey hotels (at taxpayer expense) and convert them into “temporary” shelters. Two of the businesses appropriated in this fashion are the once-elegant Row NYC in Manhattan and the Watson Hotel in Hell’s Kitchen. I say “once-elegant” because investigative reporters have been touring both of these establishments and finding that they are no longer recognizable. One worker at Row NYC has spilled the beans to reporters, describing a scene of “total chaos,” where hallways are filled with waste and a non-stop “free-for-all” of sex, drugs, and violence is taking place. The lack of planning that went into this housing project is evident and the migrants are becoming violent in many cases. (NY Post)
A once-trendy Manhattan hotel has become a wild “free-for-all” of sex, drugs and violence after the city began housing migrants there, an employee claimed Tuesday.
Row NYC worker Felipe Rodriguez — who told The Post earlier this month that migrants were throwing away “tons” of prepared food at the hotel — said the facility has now descended into “total chaos.
“Chaos, total chaos,” Rodriguez told “Fox & Friends” when asked to describe conditions at the hotel. “There’s no accountability.
The hotel employee, Felipe Rodriguez, makes it clear that there is almost no supervision or control being exercised by municipal workers. The city simply rounded up the migrants, dumped them off at the hotel, and left the staff to deal with the situation. Predictably, that has proved to be an impossible task and one that the employees were never intended to perform.
The migrants aren’t paying to stay there, so most of them clearly don’t care about trying to maintain their rooms, take out the trash, or anything else. They can’t be evicted because the City has a law forbidding their removal unless they are to be deported or sent to a different facility. Fights and sexual assaults have been reported and all of the food waste and human waste is attracting rats.
The hotels’ management teams aren’t protesting or seeking relief for their workers, either. Rodriguez pointed out that the city is actually paying the hotels more money to keep the migrants there than they would take in by serving regular guests. And while it hasn’t been clearly established, the monumental cost of eventually gutting and cleaning out the hotels before they can return to normal operations will doubtless be passed on to the taxpayers as well.
Also, this is no longer looking like a “temporary” housing situation, particularly at the Watson Hotel. A new migrant housing facility was recently established in Brooklyn, but when municipal workers attempted to move the migrants there from the Watson, a large number of them simply refused to go, preferring to stay at the formerly swanky address.
What did the Mayor and the City Council think was going to happen when they launched this project? This chaos was completely predictable. And there is no end in sight because there will apparently not be any end to the flow of hundreds of thousands of migrants crossing the border each month, with many of them winding up in New York City. They will all be expecting asylum, free housing and food, and eventually citizenship. And don’t be fooled by the muted protestations coming from both the Democrats in New York City or the federal government. This is all happening by design.
“hotel has become a wild “free-for-all” of sex, drugs and violence”
In other words a libtard utopia
Of course they aren't. They expect the maid service to do that for them. In a $500/night room, who wouldn't expect the same level of service?
I think this ties in with the controversy this week over trying to force Section 8 and other “affordable housing” into normal middle and upper class neighborhoods. The result will be the “wild free for all of sex, drugs and violence.” like these places.
No going down with the trash....
In the California hotels they said the room service meals and snacks were served in rooms rather than have the “homeless” or drug addicts evicted from the sidewalks have to go down to search for a drug deal on the streets.
Wanted to avoid what Allen Ginsberg’s poem said:
“I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix, angel-headed hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night....”
this is exactly what happens when you start giving folks ‘stuff for free’- they start out by testing the waters- making ‘reasonable demands’, which they note get met right away- then they ramp up their demands- and try to see how far they can push- knowing all the while that the moronic liberals will cave and give in to them so as “not to upset the poor ‘migrants’”- and then they start really demanding crap- acting out- abusing everyone in the process-
Why? Because they can get away with it because of idiots that run liberal cities who refuse to punish bad behavior!
This is what you get when you agree to accept third world sewage. Their own countries don’t want them.
I’m so glad they’re able to afford loads and loads and loads of corona beer for their permanent siesta
It is no wonder........
.”The hotels’ management teams ‘aren’t’ protesting or seeking relief for their workers, ....the city is paying the hotels ‘more money to keep the migrants’ there than they would by serving regular guests. ...... the monumental cost of gutting and cleaning out the hotels before they can return to normal operations will be passed on to the taxpayers as well”.......
It’s a temporary situation.
Eventually the illegal aliens will set the building on fire and burn it to the ground.
The answer is easy...deport them!! Period.
They will do this whereever they end up landing......ungrateful leeches!
This is going to become a scandal if they aren’t recycling. s/
Do you know if plastic straws have been found in the rooms?
I wonder if anybody bothered to train them on pronouns. If they don’t use “Latinx,” do they get sent back?
The audacity of these scumbags. They shouldn’t even be in our country, they should be returned to their sh*tholes of origin. They’re breaking our laws by being here.
Stupid, stupid, stupid Democrats.
Excellent. Send another 200,000 of the wetbacks to NYC with love to affirmative action Mayor Eric Adams.
Simultaneously, start packing them by the tens of thousands into Albany for Kathy Dearest to deal with.
And don’t forget DC! No congress critter should be able to go one day without stumbling over half a dozen of the bloodsucking vermin.
Turn all blue cities and states into ever more rotting hellholes than they already are. Punish them and their inhabitants harshly for their idiocy. Only then will the boobs that inhabit those losertowns begin to wise up, vote right, and clean up their own litterboxes.
