Under President Joe Biden, illegal immigration has taken the U.S. by storm, jeopardizing the lives of all Americans. The southern border crisis has affected many major cities across America, such as New York City, where 2,000 unlawful migrants were recently housed in James Madison High School, forcing 2,000 students to work remotely for one day.
The New York Post reported that as a storm heads up to the East Coast, illegal immigrants in the Big Apple were sent to James Madison High School as a precaution. New York City is expected to experience torrential downpours and heavy winds on Jan. 10, 2024.
The unlawful migrants sent to the high school were originally housed in a tent at an exposed airfield in the Big Apple.
“To be clear, this relocation is a proactive measure being taken out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety and wellbeing of individuals working and living at the center,” a spokesman for City Hall, Kayla Mamelak, said.
“The families are already in the process of being temporarily relocated and will continue to be provided with essential services and support,” Mamelak continued. “The relocation will continue until any weather conditions that may arise have stabilized and the facility is once again fit for living.”
New York City councilmember Inna Vernikov said in a press release that the illegal immigrants will remain in James Madison High School overnight.
“This is both unacceptable and was entirely foreseeable, as Floyd Bennett Field is vulnerable to all forms of inclement weather conditions and is not a sustainable housing facility. This emergency move was accurately predicted by critics of the Floyd Bennett Field as a location to be used as a migrant shelter,” Vernikov wrote.
Vernikov said that since the illegal immigrants are occupying the high school, students left early on Jan. 9, 2024, and will work from home on Jan. 10, 2024.

Such a development comes after New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) announced that his administration took legal action against bus companies dropping off illegal immigrants in the Big Apple.
Since the spring of 2022, New York City has seen illegal immigration skyrocket, with over 100,000 unlawful migrants making their way to the city.
