The New York Post reported Saturday: After leaving office four months ago, de Blasio and Chirlane McCray made a beeline from Gracie Mansion to the swanky New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge — where suites run from about $600 to $5,000 a night — and have been staying there ever since while their home in Park Slope, Brooklyn, undergoes renovations, according to hotel staffers and other sources.

    Manhattan’s Billionaires’ Row will soon feature a men’s homeless shelter smack-bang in the middle of it despite a three-year offensive to halt its creation by members of the city’s elite, the New York Court of Appeals has ruled.

    Under the Biden administration, the Border Patrol is now the Welcome Wagon for migrant families and unaccompanied minors smuggled to the border by human trafficking cartels. Unlike the Trump administration which had a policy of immediately returning to Mexico nearly all illegal border crossers, Biden is now allowing children traveling “alone” and a majority of migrant families to stay in the U.S. while their bogus asylum claims are processed. The abrupt change in policy, coupled with Biden shutting down construction of President Trump’s border wall while promising amnesty for illegal aliens has provoked a flood of migrants who are overwhelming...

    At the inn, patients get a room to themselves and three meals a day, as well as in-person checkups from MGH medical providers, all at no cost. They have television and free wifi. But they also must choose to be confined, to forgo home-cooked meals and the care of their loved ones, to submit to a certain level of surveillance and abstain from going outside. It’s a respite — albeit a lonely, difficult one.
