Mocobizscene- The presence of luxury cars belonging to migrants, who are said to be seeking assistance, has sparked controversy as they were recently towed away from a disputed NYC shelter. This incident has raised concerns among both locals and officials, questioning the circumstances surrounding it.
Authorities have impounded several unregistered luxury vehicles purportedly owned by migrants outside a contentious tent shelter in Floyd Bennett Field, New York City. This surprising turn of events occurred on Friday night, causing a wave of surprise and confusion among local residents and officials.
Assemblywoman Jaime Williams (D-Brooklyn) was shocked by the spectacle and captured the incident on video. She later shared it on Facebook and expressed her disbelief, saying, “This is insane. Where did they get the money to buy vehicles? This is bigger than all of us.”
Several vehicles were confiscated, including a white pickup truck without any license plates, a Toyota Sienna with Florida dealership plates, and two Toyota Sequoia SUVs. These vehicles were illegally parked in federal parkland. However, there were protests from at least one migrant who pleaded to regain access to their vehicle.
The incident coincides with recent complaints from residents of Marine Park, a predominantly working-class neighborhood. Interestingly, asylum-seeking families have been knocking on their doors in search of spare change and other forms of aid. These incidents have raised safety concerns among locals.
Assemblywoman Williams criticized the Biden Administration for its handling of the city’s migrant crisis, adding fuel to the fire. She expressed her concern that Floyd Bennett Field, a national park, has been reduced to a “dumping ground” since it started hosting migrants in November last year.
The federal park police conducted the impounding operation, with assistance from the NYPD’s 63rd Precinct. However, there have been no official statements released by the Mayor’s Office or the NYPD regarding the incident.
