New York City is facing a migrant crisis, with over 100,000 asylum seekers arriving in the past year. The influx has put a strain on city resources and services and has also led to increased social tensions.

One of the biggest disadvantages of the migrant crisis is the impact it is having on the city’s shelter system. The city is already struggling to provide shelter for its homeless population, and the influx of migrants has made the problem even worse.

As a result, many migrants are being forced to sleep on the streets or in overcrowded shelters.

The city’s Democrat mayor, Eric Adams is not thrilled by the development.

“I don’t see an ending to this,” the Democrat lamented.

“This issue will destroy New York City.”

On Friday, protesters disrupted a news conference hosted by a delegation of Democratic lawmakers who were touring a New York City hotel.

The lawmakers, Adriano Espaillat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Nydia Velazquez and Jerry Nadler of New York, were booed by angry protesters as they converged on the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan, which has been serving as a relief center for migrants.

Some of the protesters could be heard bellowing over megaphones, “Close the border!”  “Send them back!”

A furious New Yorker called on NYC citizens to stand up to the migrant crisis themselves because “selected” officials won’t do anything about it.

“This is up to us. This is up to each & every one of us to stand up. Nobody’s coming here for us.

“They’re here is to steal our votes.

“They’re stealing our votes, our kids’ future. My birthright, our United States, our great city that I refuse to leave.

“These elected officials aren’t even elected. They’re using absentee ballots. They’re being selected.”

Many Americans have also taken to social media to vent their frustration with the influx of migrants.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, @YourWebmiester said, “The politicians in NYC are deaf to their constituents. While I have little hope for it, I wish the citizens of NY would wake up and make a change. However, who could run that would actually represent what the people want?”

Another X user, @professornez said, “Horrendous policies yield horrendous consequences.”

@BobbyWilson1004 said, “Biden’s America”.

@EastTN3740 said, “Something is going to snap eventually.”

Freelance journalist, Michael Porter said, “Indeed, it seems like a revolution is brewing. The dynamics in NYC are changing rapidly, and it might just swing the pendulum in a direction many didn’t expect. Exciting times!”
