Report: Taxpayers footing the bill to put illegal immigrants up in high-rise hotels before releasing them into America


SAN DIEGO, CA- As Americans continue to have restrictions placed on things such as dining out, attending sports events and travel, some people are enjoying opulent hotel rooms on the dime of the same Americans.

These people include homeless drug addicts in San Francisco, and now the New York Times is reporting that illegal border crossers from Mexico are being put up in high-rise hotels in Southern California, according to Breitbart News.

As Biden’s administration again implements the Obama era border “strategy” of catch and release—where illegals crossing the border are freed to go about the United States while awaiting either asylum or immigration hearings—many of these illegals are being put up in hotels to “quarantine” until they are released.

Breitbart notes that in Texas, illegal border crossers don’t have to quarantine before being released into the country.

According to the New York Times:

To guard against the coronavirus, health authorities in San Diego have arranged housing for hundreds of arriving migrants in a downtown high-rise hotel, where they are quarantined before being allowed to join family or friends in the interior of the United States. [Emphasis added]

Health authorities in San Diego have ruled that those crossing into California must remain at the hotel for 10 days before being allowed to go onward. There is no similar quarantine requirement in Texas for migrants who arrive with no coronavirus symptoms, according to volunteers working with the migrants; there, they said, those released by Border Patrol are being allowed to board buses and travel to other destinations. [Emphasis added]

In San Diego, more hotels were being lined up to take in migrants, said Ms. Clark of Jewish Family Service. “We are going to need more federal resources,” she said. [Emphasis added]

The report from the Times is the first indicator that Biden’s virtual “open border” policies are having an impact on the numbers entering the US, in particular those who are being released into the country despite the pandemic.

 Ironically, people entering the country legally via airlines must have a negative COVID test within three days prior to entering the country, and as second negative COVID test within three days afterward. Also, they must quarantine for seven days. All in the same of “public safety.”

The Times was also forced to admit that the increase in border crossings is due to “expectations of a friendlier reception” tied into the Biden administration’s immigration policies, which are expected to offer amnesty to illegal aliens, stop deportations and put a halt to interior immigration enforcement.

The Times noted that over 1,000 illegal border crossers have been released into the interior United States in just the last few days, while migrant camps across the border in Mexico have “boomed to 1,000 people over the past few weeks.”

According to activists, at least 1,000 of those have been released in Texas, while several hundred more have been released in southern California.

One advocacy group said that more than 200 border crossers have been released in California in the first week of February, while in December, only 54 border crossers were released to the group and 140 in January.

The change in presidential administrations has also changed the types of migration that the country is now experiencing. Previously, federal immigration officials had made clear that lacking health care is not a legal claim for asylum.

However under Biden, illegals who cross the border and who are in poor health are being allowed into the US in order to take advantage of public resources and medical services which are intended for legal immigrants and American citizens.

The Times noted a case where a Honduran national in bad health had fled that country with her family over a year ago, however wasn’t admitted to the US under the Trump administration. That changed about a week ago due to Biden’s virtual open borders policy.

As Breitbart has noted, and as mentioned earlier, the Biden administration has not had illegal border crossers tested before releasing them into the country. Almost 400 illegals in McAllen, Texas were released in recent weeks and allowed to remain in the country.

Back in December, we reported on an illegal alien admitted by Obama under DACA who was charged with murder and sexual assault of a 16-year-old in metropolitan Denver. For more on that, we invite you to:


ARAPAHOE COUNTY, CO – Authorities in the county south and east of the Denver metropolitan area have announced charges against Jorge Alexander Che-Quiab, a 25-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, in the death of 16-year-old Alexis Krzystek. 

Che-Quiab has been charged with first-degree murder and sexual assault. His involvement and assault of the girl included giving her an overdose  of fentanyl that killed her.  Charges also include the fact that Alexis, and several other girls with her, were minors.

According to law enforcement, Che-Quiab first illegally entered the United States through the southern border on an unknown date. In 2014, he was granted DACA protections, but was kicked out of the program after failing to renew his application.

It is alleged that Che-Quiab arrived at an August party with at least three minor girls and an 18-year-old woman and gave them fentanyl, which he told them was oxycodone.

Che-Quiab admitted to police that he and another man had sex with multiple girls, who were either high or drunk, including the 14-year-old girl whom he is accused of sexually assaulting.

From the Brietbart article:

“Che-Quiab, police said, did not call 911 when Krzystek began turning blue and instead went to sleep. The next morning, Krzystek was not breathing and Che-Quiab called 911 before getting rid of drugs that were in the residence.  When police arrived on the scene, they found fentanyl and heroin.

“Last week, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency placed a detainer on Che-Quiab, asking Arapahoe County officials to release the DACA illegal alien to their custody if he is released at any time.

“According to ICE, Colorado’s sanctuary state policy allowed Che-Quiab to post bail in October and be released from jail after being arrested in August for drug possession, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and child abuse with reckless bodily injury.”

John Fabbricatore, Director of the Denver Field Office for Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) stated:

“Colorado’s sanctuary policy continues to fail the residents of this great state by ensuring that criminals who don’t belong here are released to the community where they could potentially harm more people.”

Che-Quiab faces 13 felony charges and is being held on a $2,000,000 bond.

Also involving an illegal immigrant in the Denver area, 29-year-old Felix Missael Alva was arrested after a three-month investigation, stemming from a shooting incident this past summer. 

A Denver police detective observed a man firing a gun in the air towards two helicopters during protests in downtown. 

Now, Alva, has been arrested and charged with the federal crime of unlawfully possessing a firearm as an undocumented immigrant.

Felix Missael Alva is a previously deported Mexican national who is living in the United States without documentation or citizenship, and remains in federal custody.

A lawyer from the Office of the Federal Public Defender for the Districts of Colorado and Wyoming represented Alva in his initial appearance in the U.S. District Court of Colorado. He is facing up to ten years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.

According to the criminal complaint against Alva, authored by an agent from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATFE), a Denver police detective in plain clothes was walking on Washington Street, just south of Colfax Avenue, when a white Jeep Cherokee stopped next to him.

The detective observed a “Hispanic male, in his 30s with a medium to heavy build” in the passenger’s seat. The passenger looked at the detective and said:

“Hey Homie!”

He then said:

“This ain’t no peaceful protest, fuck twelve!” 

“Fuck twelve” is slang for “Fuck the police.”

According to the complaint, the man in the Jeep pulled out a large black semi-automatic handgun and held it down beneath the window before beginning to tap the muzzle on the side of the Jeep’s passenger door.

The man proceeded to point it at a Denver police helicopter flying overhead along with a local news helicopter. He said before opening fire:

“This is for them!”

Another detective and a nearby police officer also observed the man shooting the gun. After the passenger fired the weapon, the driver of the Jeep turned the wrong way down one-way East 14th Avenue.
