(SNews) – Migrants are fleeing Democrat-controlled New York City because crime is making life unbearable and causing them to feel unsafe, according to reports.
According to a new report from the New York Post, migrants are leaving NYC and heading north into Canada on taxpayer-funded buses.
Many say they hope “Canada will be safer” after experiencing crime, “drugs,” and the “homeless people” crisis in New York.
The Big Apple is the center of the migrant “crisis” on the East Coast.
Thousands of illegal immigrants have flooded the city, with some living in ritzy, taxpayer-funded hotel rooms.
But not all migrants are pleased with life in the city.
Some told the Post that they would rather accept “free tickets” for a ride up north to Canada.
They argue that Canada has better opportunities in a country due to its lower rates of homelessness and drug abuse.
“The military gave me and my family free bus tickets,” one Venezuelan migrant told the Post.
“I am going to Canada for a better quality of life for my family,” one migrant, named Raymond Peña said.
Another migrant said he was “kicked out” of the Row hotel near Times Square.
After being booted from the hotel, he was sent to a homeless shelter in Brooklyn.
A whistleblower at the Row Hotel released video and photos last month of illegal immigrants trashing the hotel and leaving “good” food out to rot.
“The chaos that we see at the Row today is [caused] by migrants being drunk, drinking all day, smoking marijuana [and] consuming drugs,” Felipe Rodriguez said.
The whistleblower also said that the Row was struggling with “domestic violence” among migrants, young people “having sex in the stairs,” and a fight between a migrant and a hotel security officer.
Manuel Rodon, a migrant from Venezuela, told the New York Post that he was concerned about rampant drug use in New York City.
“A lot of the Americans used drugs there,” he said.
“I feel like Canada will be safer,” he added.
“It is a much quieter country than America.”
New York City Mayor Eric Adams has begged the White House to give aid on the migrant crisis.
“I’m extremely frustrated,” Adams said in December.
He was referring to the nearly 21,000 migrants who have been bussed to New York since last year.
But the mayor’s press office has simultaneously attempted to present itself as pro-migrant.
Adam’s press secretary shared that “asylum seekers are also being provided with free roundtrip tickets on a NYC Ferry every day.”
Would also note that asylum seekers are also being provided with free roundtrip tickets on a NYC Ferry every day. https://t.co/d0c4ZxtNVa
