On Sunday night, police officials were called to Hell’s Kitchen, a neighborhood of Manhattan, when a bunch of illegal immigrants residing in a hotel declined to be shifted to a Brooklyn refuge. 

New York City Mayor, Eric Adams, stated:

“This weekend, we began the process of moving single adults[sic] males from the Watson Hotel to Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, as we transition the hotel to meet a large number of asylum-seeking families with children.”

He also added:

“The facilities at Brooklyn Cruise Terminal will provide the same services as every other humanitarian relief center in the city.”

According to a report by National Review, on Sunday night, approximately 50 illegal immigrants protested against the relocation of migrants to the Brooklyn facility, and they set up camps outside the hotel. 

It was also reported that some immigrants visited the new facility; however, they returned to the hotel after they saw the unsatisfactory conditions at the new shelter.

A protester from Sunday night stated the facility was an “icebox” with “hundreds of cots in warehouse-like rooms, few bathrooms, and little heat,” as per the report by W42St.com. 

According to ABC 7 NY, at around 11 a.m., the NYPD officials moved the camps of the migrants in order to keep the sidewalk along 57th Street clear. 

A Twitter user who was recording Sunday night’s scenes represented it as a “mini-riot” as he shared a video. 

The video displays a bunch of immigrants outside the Watson Hotel, along with several police officials, a few emergency vehicles, and a bus.
