‘The immediate resolution is that the [$450 per night] Hotel Watson needs to accept these [illegal alien] men back and put them back into their rooms,’ Sergio Tupac Uzurin, an anti-NYPD and pro-migrant activist. ‘The longer-term solution is to reallocate funding from over-funded departments like the NYPD into housing vouchers…’

Left-wing activist leading campaign to get NYC migrants back into $450-a-night hotel is anti-NYPD, and was involved in BLM and Occupy Wall St. protests after attending exclusive Manhattan high school

A self-appointed spokesman for the migrants assembled outside of a hotel in Manhattan as they protest the efforts being made to move them to a converted ferry terminal is a long-time agitator with a history of left-wing activism going back to the Occupy Wall Street movement. 

The city’s office of immigrant affairs said that the shelter is temperature-controlled with free-food, security, over 100 toilets and that residents are given vouchers for public transportation to get them to where they need to be.

The city plans to begin moving migrant families into the Watson as early as next week, reports CBS New York. 

…a Holiday Inn hotel in Manhattan’s Financial District won court approval to host migrants to the tune of $190 per room per night, the New York Post reported.

The hotel had applied for bankruptcy just this November in the fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic. The new arrangement will net the hotel over $93,000 a day and nearly $3million a month.  

Buses of migrants have been arriving in NYC since fall when Republican governors, primarily Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, began sending asylum seekers from the border to largely Democratic-leaning cities.

Migrants who have landed in New York City are protesting the decision to send them from a midtown hotel to a ferry cruise terminal in Brooklyn by camping outside of their affluent lodgings.  

On Wednesday, DailyMail.com witnessed activists serving the migrants food including pizza, donuts, coffee, avocados and fruit while protecting them from the media with black umbrellas as bread was thrown at reporters. 

Sergio Tupac Uzurin, an anti-NYPD and pro-migrant activist who attended Manhattan’s exclusive Stuyvesant High School, earlier told a group of reporters and residents of the area around West 57th Street this week that the reason for the protest was that the ‘cold’ shelter was ‘not meant to be inhabited’ and that the beds are made of ‘hard materials.’ 

The previous night, dozens of migrants were pictured sleeping out on the street in front of the hotel as temperatures plummeted to the 20s, followed by snowfall in the early hours of Wednesday. 

Uzurin also argued that Mayor Eric Adams and New York Governor Kathy Hochul should give the newly arrived migrants access to the apartments in the area around The Watson Hotel known as ‘Billionaire’s Row.’  

Rooms at The Watson Hotel usually go for around $450 per night.
