NYC parents angry as high school turned over to illegal immigrants, students forced back to virtual learning

"How does it feel that you kicked all the kids out of school tomorrow? Does it feel good?"

Parents expressed their anger after a Brooklyn high school sent students home in order to house illegal immigrants at the school, forcing students to go back to remote learning.

As a line of school buses packed full of illegal immigrants approached James Madison High School around 6 pm on Tuesday, one mother yelled at the drivers, and the illegal immigrants.

"How does it feel that you kicked all the kids out of school tomorrow? Does it feel good? I hope you feel good. I hope you will sleep very well tonight!" said the mother, who identified herself as Michelle, according to the New York Post.

"Look at them," the mother continued as she video-recorded one group of illegal immigrants exiting the buses and heading into the high school. "Taking over my kid's school!"

New York City made the decision to "temporarily" house nearly 2,000 illegal immigrants inside the second-floor gymnasium at James Madison High School amid concerns about a severe storm heading up the coast.

Those transported to the high school had been staying at a shelter located at Floyd Bennett Field. City officials were concerned that the tents at the Floyd Bennett Field location would collapse in the storm.

The last-minute decision did not sit well with the neighbors of the school.

"This is f*cked up," said one resident identified as Rob. "It's a litmus test. They are using a storm, a legitimate situation, where they are testing this out. I guarantee you they'll be here for the entire summer."

"There's 1,900 people getting thrown into my neighborhood, half a block from where I live and we don't know who they are," he said.

"They're not vetted. A lot of them have criminal records and backgrounds and we don't even know," he added.

As the buses arrived at the school, another local man could be heard on video yelling: "How do you feel stealing American tax money?"

Speaking on the issue, City Hall spokeswoman Kayla Mamelak told the outlet: "To be clear, this relocation is a proactive measure being taken out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety and well-being of individuals working and living at the center."

"The families are already in the process of being temporarily relocated and will continue to be provided with essential services and support," Mamelak added. "The relocation will continue until any weather conditions that may arise have stabilized and the facility is once again fit for living."

From the 162,000 migrants who have entered the five boroughs from the US border since the spring of 2022, around 70,000 still need to be cared for by the city. Some 10,000 come into the city each month.

Councilwoman Joann Ariola (R-Queens) told the Post: "I warned the administration that something like this would happen from day one and they refused to listen."

"Floyd Bennett Field is entirely unsuitable for a tent complex, and how we are wasting taxpayer dollars to evacuate nearly 2,000 people when they should have been placed somewhere like the Park Slope Armory," she said.

"This did not take a fortune teller to predict," she added. "It was common sense."

This comes as New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced on Thursday that his administration had filed a $700 million lawsuit against 17 charter bus companies that facilitated the transport of illegal immigrants from the southern border to the Big Apple.

Adams accused the companies of violating state law by failing to cover the cost of caring for the nearly 34,000 illegal immigrants brought in over the past 20 months, which has amounted to nearly three-quarters of a billion dollars.

Over 100,000 illegal immigrants have come to the sanctuary city, with Adams saying in late 2023 that "Everything’s on the table" when discussing what the city would cut to pay its debts. "But we want to minimize the impact to lower-income New Yorkers, our educational institutions, our public safety, and keeping our city streets. But everything’s on the table.”
