( – Officials in New York City, including City Council members, are expressing serious concern about the ongoing migrant crisis in the city, describing it as completely out of hand and unsustainable. The situation is particularly apparent near the Roosevelt Hotel, where asylum seekers gather, causing distress among local residents.

Councilwoman Vickie Paladino is among those voicing alarm over the increase of illegal immigrants, stating that this surge is adversely affecting the life quality of New Yorkers and threatening the city’s unique character. During a recent appearance on “Fox & Friends First,” Paladino lamented the changes happening in the city, saying they are destroying the vibrant core of the nation.

The Roosevelt Hotel has become a central point for newly arrived migrants, providing essential services like food, vaccinations, and caseworker meetings. However, it has reached its total capacity, forcing many to seek shelter on the streets around the hotel. The facility also serves as a humanitarian center, primarily housing children and families, while adult asylum seekers must wait outside.

Recent images show migrants resting on sidewalks and gathered around the building’s exterior, a sight Paladino described as evidence of a completely chaotic situation.

Joining the criticism, Democratic Councilman Robert Holden slammed local and federal authorities for handling the situation. In an interview on “The Ingraham Angle,” he called the state of affairs “absurd” and questioned the effectiveness of border security.

Mayor Eric Adams has acknowledged that the city has reached its limit and cannot accommodate more migrants. He urged those seeking refuge to look elsewhere and has repeatedly called for federal assistance.

The number of migrants under the city’s care has surpassed 54,800, with 188 locations set up to support them. Although these figures are small compared to the national numbers, they have left the city struggling to cope. Mayor Adams has even demanded a state of emergency, seeking proper funding to address the issue. Paladino agrees with the mayor’s call for immediate action.

According to officials, nearly 100,000 asylum seekers have come to New York since the spring of 2022. The lack of a clear plan to handle the situation has led to frustrations, with Holden insisting that the Biden administration needs to do more.

A report from Fox 5 indicates that the city cares for over 56,000 migrants, and the numbers are increasing daily. As the strain on the shelter system grows, Paladino has called for decisive actions such as closing the border and revoking the city’s sanctuary status, which many believe is attracting migrants to New York.

Paladino’s frustration was evident as she urged the city to take drastic measures. “Stop. Turn the people around. Get the buses out of here. They can’t come here anymore. There’s no more room. It’s ruining New Yorkers’ quality of life now,” she stated. Her comments reflect a growing sentiment that the city must take bold steps to address a crisis that shows no signs of abating.
