Migrants from all corners of the globe have made their way into the United States, only to find upon arrival that the system is not able to accommodate them. While states along the southern border have bore the brunt of the influx of people, so-called "sanctuary cities" across the nation have begun feeling the impacts of unfettered migration as well. 

Perhaps nowhere is the crisis more apparent than in New York City, where economic migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers alike have been forced to crowd the streets, with only a lucky few being provided shelter and a regular supply of food and water.



Footage taken in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday shows just how out of control things have gotten. The focal point of the crisis is the Roosevelt Hotel on Park Avenue and 45th Street, in front of which hundreds of migrants have been parked for days awaiting help from the city.

The hotel was shut down in 2020 and refitted to act as an "asylum seeker arrival center," one of over a hundred set up across the city. 

Outside the once-swanky establishment, migrants and their belongings brave the sweltering heat in hopes of receiving food, water, and shelter from whoever can provide it.

According to the Daily Mail, most of the migrants came from Africa, Asia, and South America, and while they spoke different languages, they all shared frustration over the time it has taken for authorities to process people.

"We can’t stay here night after night," one man from Mauritania said. "The application process is so slow. Since the morning, they haven't taken one person and more people keep coming."

New York City's migrant woes began last year. Since then, Mayor Eric Adams has admitted that it has turned into a crisis.

"Now that we have run out of room," he said on Monday, "we have to figure out how we're going to localize the inevitable that there's no more room indoors."

He emphasized that New York City "is not going to look like other cities with their tents up and down."

His administration recently sent out a flier aimed at deterring prospective migrants from coming to the city.

"Since April 2022, more than 90,000 migrants have come to New York City," it reads. "There is no guarantee we will be able to provide shelter and services to new arrivals ... Please consider another city as you make your decision about where to settle in the US."
