BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – A group of illegal migrants, who entered into the U.S. through the southern border, are refusing to leave their free NYC hotel rooms for a migrant shelter in Brooklyn, New York, sleeping in the street to protest.

While some migrants left for the new shelter, many refused to vacate the Watson Hotel in Midtown Manhattan, and rallied outside the building alongside migrant activists. The migrants who were noncompliant in the city’s relocation spent the night outside the hotel and were seen holding their ground into Monday morning.

Democrat Mayor Eric Adams responded to the situation, affirming that the new facilities were hospitable accommodations and noting the dire need of state and government support amid the ongoing migrant crisis that is impacting the Big Apple. He then added, “The immigrants that spent the night outside should not be allowed back in their rooms, because they proved that they can easily handle homelessness and live in the streets.”
