Beggars can be choosers in New York City as illegal aliens snubbed their latest digs with demands to be returned to their previous shelters as part of a “disaster waiting to happen.”
Sunday, after President Joe Biden’s administration had given the thumbs-up for a former Brooklyn airfield managed by the National Park Service to be used to temporarily house aliens, the first busses pulled up to Floyd Bennett Field. No sooner had they arrived, the New York Post was told by fuming freeloaders, “We’re going back.”
The newspaper indicated that dozens of families had been shuttled from elsewhere in the city Sunday with many contending they hadn’t been told their destination.
“We weren’t told where we were going. I work in The Bronx. My kids go to school in The Bronx. For us to live out here is ridiculous,” one father expressed before adding, “We’re going back.”
Another, who was said to have been living at the Roosevelt Hotel in Midtown Manhattan, “They are going to take us back to the train so we can go back to 45th Street. We didn’t know we were coming here. They just said they were taking us to a shelter.”
“I cannot stay here. This is crazy,” he added.
NEW: New York City migrants are now complaining and leaving their new makeshift tent city, brought to them by Mayor Eric Adams, because it wasn’t nice enough.

After speaking with a city representative of the Health and Hospitals system, New York State Assemblywoman Jaime Williams (D-Brooklyn) told the Post, “When I asked him why did they leave immediately like that, he said the people, they were scared. They weren’t sure what they were doing here. They don’t want to be here, and they asked to leave.”
“They said, ‘It’s so isolated, how could I possibly get back and forth to work?’ or, ‘Getting my children to school from here would be insane.’ So they all asked to leave,” she continued. “It’s a disaster waiting to happen.”
By Sunday night, as some families had agreed to remain at the temporary facility, NYC Mayor Eric Adams (D) was on the scene lamenting the crisis wrought by open border policies. “This is not, you know, the best conditions but we’re managing a crisis and we cannot say it any better that we need help.”

A spokesperson for Hizzoner added to the Post, “As we have said time and time again, more than 139,500 asylum seekers have moved through our intake system since the spring of 2022, all of whom have been offered vital services.”
“But with more than 65,000 migrants still currently in our care, and thousands more continuing to arrive every week, we have used every possible corner of New York City and are quite simply out of good options to shelter migrants,” continued the statement as the Big Apple had already utilized hotels, schools and other spaces while facing backlash from citizens.
On the point of Adams’ call for help, New York Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R) and Washington Rep. Dan Newhouse (R) agreed about the buck stopping with Biden and wrote in part, “It’s up to Congress to fix this problem as the Biden administration refuses to act. In addition to taking broader actions to secure the border, such as when House Republicans passed H.R. 2 earlier this year, we must take action to end housing on public lands. We must pass H.R. 5283, the ‘Protecting our Communities from Failure to Secure the Border Act of 2023.”
They had also indicated, “The administration clearly had no plan to deal with the results of this influx,” referring to more than six million illegal crossing since Biden’s inauguration, “and has now resorted to using America’s public lands and wasting taxpayer dollars to house people residing here illegally.”
In addition to the remote nature of the facility that reportedly aimed to shelter about 2,000, fire safety concerns had also been expressed by inspectors as the nearest fire hydrants for the area serviced by two FDNY satellite units covering the entire borough of Brooklyn were about a half-mile away and considered “not reliable” and illegals may be permitted the use of e-bikes, proving to be an added hazard over the risk of lithium batteries starting fires.
