NYC's New Accommodations for Illegal Aliens Have American Homeless Crying Foul

NYC’s Mayor Eric Adams declared an emergency after just getting several thousand illegal aliens sent to his city. Meanwhile, 203,597 illegal aliens have crossed our southern border in just August 2022 alone, and the media isn’t focused on that. Adams has now set up a tent city on Randall’s Island to deal with the influx. The first group of 500 single men was expected on Wednesday this week.


What do they have to look forward to in the tent accommodations?

The city unveiled Mayor Eric Adams’ controversial tent city on Tuesday — detailing how migrants staying there will be given three meals a day, fluff-and-fold laundry service and an array of entertainment including TV and video games.

“This is a place people can come, rest, relax and kick their feet up after the journey they have been on,” Emergency Management Commissioner Zach Iscol told reporters at the facility on Randall’s Island.

There are also two popcorn machines, Xbox game consoles, ping-pong and foosball tables, board games, as well as 12 phones that can be used to make international calls. In addition to the three meals a day, snacks will be provided while coffee, tea, and water will be available around the clock. And of course, the meals are “culturally appropriate” and will rotate regularly.

Whew, glad to know none of the illegal aliens will be offended by not “culturally appropriate” food, and it will rotate so they wouldn’t get bored. Are these officials in NYC joking? If you didn’t mind sleeping with a lot of other people, why would you ever leave? Oh, and they’re going to issue ID cards to the illegal aliens and make sure that ordinary homeless Americans can’t get in. So IDs aren’t Jim Crow 2.0 now, when you use them to keep Americans out.


So, how do homeless Americans feel about all this? They’re outraged.

“They’ve got Xboxes? Get the f–k outta here!” fumed Baran Hines, 36.

The Brooklyn native said he’s been living since late August in the HELP Meyer shelter on Randall’s Island in a high-rise that’s just 350 yards away and visible from the new tent city.

“The building I’m in is so f–king awful,” Hines said.

“The smell is awful on every floor. The bathrooms are terrible with piss everywhere and s–t everywhere. There are flies in the bathroom.

“The tents look five times better,” he added.

Hines said he sleeps on “a raggedy bed with a hard mattress” and won’t eat the food that’s served “because that s–t will kill you.”

“Once a month, if I recognize the food, I’ll eat it,” he said. “But you taste some meals and you don’t know what it is.”

The elevators and the laundry machines frequently don’t work.

There are always going to be reasons people feel that someone is something better than them, Mayor Eric Adams said, putting down the complaints by the homeless men. Yes, particularly when the illegal aliens are getting it better. The city is paying $5,300 per man per month to house them in that crummy shelter. Heck, for that amount of money they could be living in the poshest apartment with all the services. That’s the consequence of a Democratic-run city.

But even in the homeless shelter system, illegal aliens are allegedly getting preferential treatment to Americans, according to the men at Manhattan’s Bellevue shelter. Shelter residents said fights have erupted because of the overcrowding and tensions between the two groups, with one resident saying, “It’s gonna blow up any day now.” Adams’ response to questions about that? “We’re not doing that, and we should not have to pit against the migrants and non-migrants.” He’s sort of right; he’s not doing that– he’s out and out giving preferential treatment to illegal aliens.
