Immigrants behaving badly, won’t follow rules at taxpayer-funded $500 per night Times Square hotel

A whistleblower who works in housekeeping at a four-star, $500/night hotel in New York City has claimed that the asylum-seeking migrants being housed there are basically behaving like animals.

According to Row NYC hotel worker Filipe Rodriguez, they’re “drinking all day,” “smoking marijuana,” “consuming drugs,” “having sex in the stairs,” “hoarding whatever,” “spreading all type of illnesses,” and even sometimes engaging in “domestic violence.”

They’re also throwing away the food that’s being given to them and, instead, illegally cooking their own food in their rooms.

“It’s every day you’ll find someone cooking. You can smell the eggs and rice that they’re making,” another housekeeping employee told local station WABC. “They burned the carpets with the hot plates.”

Also speaking with WABC, Rodriguez said, “If those hot plates catch on fire, the whole place will go down in flames.”

The city is, for its part, pretending all of this is just a figment of the workers’ imaginations.

“All clients are offered a food selection that reflects the diets of residents and is prepared same-day to ensure freshness. Last month, residents were even asked to participate in guest surveys to help us refine and expand menu options,” a city spokesperson told WABC.

“Of course we cannot and would not ever force clients to finish food they had taken, but we do donate leftover food when possible,” the spokesperson added.

Fact-check: FALSE.

Speaking on Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle” on Wednesday, Rodriguez added that the hotel’s management team won’t let them say or do anything about all this.

“When you go into our rooms and you say something, the hotel management –especially the GM — has directed us that we’re not allowed to tell them nothing. They practically have carte blanche [to do what they want],” he said.

“They’re not holding any accountability. They’re not really supervising this the way they should,” he said in separate remarks to WABC.

Unlike him and every other law-abiding U.S. citizen.

“There was a time in 2017 when I paid a lot of money to house my wife and my kids. I paid cable. I paid gas. I paid light. I paid my car payments. There was a lot of stuff that I had to be responsible. Fortunately for the migrants, they got the government of the United States to hand them carte blanche to pretty much do as they wish,” he continued.

In the process of running around the place carte blanche, the migrants are also reportedly essentially destroying the hotel, piece by piece.

“The conditions of the rooms are horrible. The carpets are bad. They write on the walls. I would say 95 percent of those rooms are destroyed,” the other housekeeping attendant told WABC.

Rodriguez also told Fox News about a fight he witnessed that culminated in him snapping a photo of some marijuana just lying on the hotel lobby’s floor.

“I was there that night, and one of the migrants was drunk, and he took a swing on the security officer, hit him in the head. The security for the hotel took him down. The NYPD responded,” he said.

“And when the NYPD entered the hotel, there was a couple of teenagers by the stairs of the lobby to go into the top lobby, and when they seen the cops, they just dropped the weed on the stairs, and I seen it, so I took pictures of it, and I collected it and gave it to security,” he added.

Both he and the other attendant are worried that once the migrants leave, they’ll be out of a job.

“They will have to renovate after they’re not there and that’s going to put us out of work for God knows how long,” Rodriguez explained.

“It’s a disgrace,” he said of the whole situation.

News of the conditions at the Row comes only days after President Joe Biden granted amnesty to an additional 30,000 migrants per month, meaning even more migrants are presumably en route to NYC and thus the Row at this very moment:
