Two Illegal Immigrants Accused of Attacking NYC Tourist

Authorities say two illegal immigrants are responsible for the brutal attack against a New York City tourist.

The incident reportedly happened outside the Club Quarters Hotel on West 45th Street on May 10.

The two men, allegedly living in migrant shelters, punched and kicked the victim, a 44-year-old man from Indiana.

“Every time when something like this happens. The should tag the president. And thanks him for what happening all over,” one social media user wrote.

An October 2023 poll from Siena College found that 58% of New Yorkers believe that the illegal immigrant crisis will “destroy” New York City.

“While other issues in Washington and abroad have largely driven the news cycle over the last few weeks, the influx of migrants to New York remains top of mind for voters, with 84% saying it’s a serious – 57% very serious – problem for the state,” said Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg.

“While a plurality of New Yorkers do not approve of the job Adams is doing to address the influx of migrants, a 58-32% majority of New Yorkers – including a narrow plurality of Democrats – agree with Adams’ statement that ‘this issue will destroy New York City.’ A majority of white (60%), Black (57%) and Latino (51%) voters all agree,” Greenburg added.

The poll also found that 52% of New York voters disapprove of Governor Kathy Hochul’s (D) response to the migrant crisis.
