A luxury hotel in the center of Manhattan is set to become a hub for housing migrants who have been bussed into New York City from Texas.
The Row will become a shelter for as many as 600 migrant families.
Work is reportedly being done to convert parts of the New York hotel into a migrant intake center. This could take up rooms that would typically cost guests $400 a night.
Leaders in both New York and Washington have been furious with Texas after its Gov. Greg Abbott (R) unveiled his plan to start transporting people from his southern state. However, New York and Washington are only getting a fraction of what border states deal with daily. Border Patrol agents have made a record 1.82 million arrests at the southern border in the current fiscal year so far.
