(LibertySociety.com) – Yet another issue has stemmed from the seemingly never-ending flow of illegal migrants into the United States. With hotels in major cities at full capacity from housing migrants for hundreds of dollars per night on the taxpayers’ dimes, Americans are having problems finding accommodations when traveling. Veterans and military families are already experiencing issues ahead of the annual Army-Navy football game in December. Many who have already booked hotels in Boston to attend the game at Gillette Stadium have had their rooms canceled because of the arrival of additional illegal migrants.
Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey has widely supported the surge of illegal migrants coming into the state. However, she declared a state of emergency back in August after migrant shelters became overwhelmed. Weeks later she activated the National Guard. Like other governors in Democratic states, Healey has called for expedited work authorizations for illegal migrants and increased state funding for social services. She has also been one of many to demand additional funding from the federal government. After learning of the debacle ahead of the game, Healey claimed to be “distressed that any veteran may have been moved from a hotel.” She placed the blame on hotels in the area and said that her office is personally looking to arrange new accommodations for veterans.
Hillsdale Travel agent Mark Mansbach said that the management company took back 70 rooms he had booked for guests ahead of the game. He also said that prices have skyrocketed and that his clients were concerned for their safety. A spokesperson from Giri Hotel Management defended the cancellations and claimed that they would relocate guests who had already booked rooms. Governors and mayors in Democratic states across the country have become increasingly critical of the migrant crisis that has resulted from the Biden administration’s border policies. New York City Mayor Eric Adams began a four-day trip to countries south of the border on Oct. 4. In Mexico, he spoke to the press to communicate a message directly to those who were considering coming to NYC. “There is no more room in New York,” Adams passionately told reporters in Puebla, Mexico, on Oct. 5.
