Crime Rises, NYC Mayor Considers Curfew At Migrant Centers

The migrant crisis seems to be destroying New York City, if one were to believe everything that is being said by government officials there.

Mayor Eric Adams (D) has been doing his best to keep up, putting massive restrictions on bus companies that transport illegal immigrants to the city from the southern border, and even filing a multi-million-dollar lawsuit against some of them for violating his executive orders.

Now, as crime is rising as well, Adams is considering putting a curfew in place at the shelters that have been set up around New York City to house these migrants.

Councilwoman Joann Ariola (R-Queens) broached the subject during a meeting on Thursday, following multiple reports that panhandling was occurring at the temporary shelters.

“I think a curfew should be set because homeless people [staying in New York City shelters] have curfews,” she said following the meeting. “If it’s good enough for homeless New Yorkers, it’s good enough for migrants.”

Despite Ariola being a member of the opposing political party, Adams is reportedly considering the curfew.

Many residents who live near tent shelters that were built at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn have expressed concerns about their safety plus the safety of the structures that were erected there.

According to The New York Post, some of those residents have reported that migrants have been seen walking through their neighborhoods begging for help — since the field is in such a remote location in the city.

The Adams administration has been struggling mightily to deal with the huge influx of illegal immigrants to the city over the last year and a half. He has said that major budget cuts would be necessary due to the huge amount of money that has been required to help these migrants.

In advance of a strong winter storm that came to the city this week, Adams made the odd call to shut down a Brooklyn high school so that almost 2,000 migrants could be moved there to protect them from the weather.

The high school was closed to students and staff on Wednesday as a result, with students shifting to virtual learning.
