Adams heckled in surprise visit to Roosevelt Hotel as migrants are moved out

The hordes of migrants camped outside Manhattan’s historic Roosevelt Hotel were cleared Thursday — after Mayor Eric Adams was cursed out by fed-up New Yorkers during a surprise visit to the makeshift processing center.

Hizzoner arrived at the Midtown hotel, which has become the epicenter of the city’s spiraling migrant crisis, just before 10 p.m. Wednesday.

But he wasn’t just met by the dozens of slumbering asylum seekers sleeping shoulder-to-shoulder on the sidewalk.

A crowd of frustrated residents took the opportunity to confront the mayor, with video shared on social media showing them shouting obscenities and urging him to “do something.”

“Do something Eric Adams,” one person yells in the clip.

“How many family members have to wait for you to f–king do something?”

A source who was with Adams described the chaotic scene as “wild.”

“It was wild, there were protestors, people were shouting and screaming,” the source told The Post.

“He [Adams] was a little upset, he felt they needed a little more law and order over there.”

Central Park among NYC areas considered to house migrants: ‘Everything is on the table'
The intake process to find migrants a shelter should take an average of 24 to 48 hours. However, in some cases, migrants have been sleeping on sidewalks, waiting for five to six days

What to Know

    *A large number of asylum-seekers have been outside of the city’s arrival intake center sleeping on the sidewalk as they wait to get assigned to a shelter for a bed to sleep in -- if there is one available
    *With an average of 300 to 500 people arriving by day, the city is taking new drastic steps, like giving unaccompanied migrants already under the city’s care a 60-day notice to find another roof over their heads
    *"As of July 30, we have 107,900 people in our care, including 56,600 asylum seekers. Over 95,600 people have come through our system since last spring," NYC Deputy Mayor Williams-Isom says

Hundreds of asylum seekers remain in place outside of the city's arrival intake center, where many have waited for days in wait of a place to sleep -- if there is one available.

Many of the migrants sleeping on the streets of midtown in front of the Roosevelt Hotel on East 45th Street and Madison Avenue, most of whom are single men, say their spot in line has not moved forward as New York City officials look at every possible option to house the new arrivals. ...

A new twist:

@VoteBrian
Pakistan owns the Roosevelt Hotel, which was leased to NYC for $220M, to serve as an intake hub for 120k unvetted migrants. That’s a sweetheart of a deal for those who brag about lending military assistance to terrorists. Please forward concerns to east side Rep. @KeithPowersNYC

Adams is lucky that times are bad and food costs are so high, was a time that he would not only be heckled but pelted by tomatoes and other produce.
