Hundreds of migrants have flooded into New York City's The Roosevelt Hotel overnight to be processed and given shelter as the city continues baring the brunt of the asylum seeker crisis.
The historic Manhattan tower was dubbed 'the new Ellis Island' by one city official - but there is no view of Lady Liberty or the American flag as endless streams of migrants arrive from South America, Africa and the Middle East. The Big Apple has taken at least 95,000 migrants so far in 2023 - and its ultra wokeDemocrat politicians who first welcomed the influx are now pleading with people to stop flooding across the Southern border. The migrants are transported north by Republican governors fed up with Joe Biden's disastrous open-arms policy.
'We're creating a new Ellis Island for New York City,' Dr. Ted Long, a public health official who is helping lead the city's response to the migrant crisis, told the New York Times. But if Dr Long is hoping that the Roosevelt Hotel can be seen as a symbol of hope - lawmakers on the left appear to be increasingly doubtful of their own border policy.
