    Mayor Adams claims 50% of NYC hotel rooms are being occupied by migrants, and it's already hurting the economy

    New York City Mayor Eric Adams claimed that the migrant crisis is so bad that 50% of all hotel rooms in the city are being occupied by illegal aliens.

    Adams made the comments on Wednesday while addressing criticism for his handling of the crisis.

    “In order to address an onslaught, you have to have places you can put people. Almost half of all hotel rooms now are taken up by asylum seekers. Think about that. I’m not sure what it’s going to take before people hear what I am saying," said Adams in a media briefing in Harlem.

    “New York City is the hotel capital. We’re the hotel capital — tourism, visitors, sporting events, graduations,” he added. “It’s a major economic engine for us. Almost 50% of those hotel rooms are being taken up by migrant asylum seekers.”

    The Democrat has been lambasted on all sides for his handling of the issue, but others of his own party lined up to accuse him of exaggerating the problem.

    “It would be impossible,” said City Councilwoman Diana Ayala. “The math doesn’t add up.”

    Officials estimate about 65,000 migrants have arrived in New York City in recent months, but many of those have been placed in public school gyms, emergency relief shelters, and some homeless shelters.

    Adams went on to to demand that the federal government do more to help his administration deal with the crisis at the border.

    “Instead of moneys coming from people who are visiting us and spending and our tourism and our Broadway plays — instead of them using those hotels, we’re using those hotels,” Adams said.

    Various hotel officials dodged queries from the New York Daily News to confirm the claim made by Adams.

    He has also faced criticism from the left for reports that his administration was seeking to place some of the migrants on Rikers Island.

    Officials are expecting a surge at the border after Title 42, a Trump-era immigration policy, has ended and forced the government to allow asylum seekers to stay in the U.S. while awaiting processing.

    They can occupy barges, ship them back.

    They are destroying these hotels, drinking, having sex in the hallways, throwing out the food we provide, destroying bedding, carpeting, walls, plumbing. Get them out of here!
