NY Home Depot deploys guard dog to protect shoppers from aggressive migrants and thieves in the parking lot
By Belle Carter // May 09, 2024

For more than two years, New York has been experiencing a surge in migrants. These illegals crossed the border and were bused into sanctuary cities such as the Big Apple. However, very little federal aid has been directed to said states, local government executives have complained.

Migrants must wait six months after applying for asylum before receiving a work permit. There is also a 60-day shelter stay limit in place for migrant families. Since spring 2022, over 194,000 migrants have received care in New York. The city still currently houses nearly 66,000 migrants in its shelter system. Just last week, more than 1,500 more migrants arrived in the Big Apple.

With nothing to do and just depending on government assistance, many asylum seekers (with backgrounds and places of origin unchecked) loiter in the city and resort to theft and other crimes. In fact, a branch of Home Depot in a NYC suburb recently hired security guards and a guard dog to patrol the parking lot and deter aggressive migrants from harassing shoppers and thieves from breaking into cars.

"It's more about omnipresence," one guard said, explaining that the company was contracted a few weeks ago. "It's not like we let them go bite anyone or anything." The guard claimed that it was not just about the migrants who were there that they were hired, but "because of a myriad of other things too, like people breaking into cars, that kind of stuff," he said. The New York Post re-visited the guarded New Rochelle Home Depot branch and found that the lot was now quiet and no migrants loitered there as when the news outlet visited earlier.

Meanwhile, seven miles away in Throgg's Neck, the Bronx, at least 30 male migrants hovered at the doors of another Home Depot. According to reports, apart from illegals, people roaming around were day laborers looking for local contractors for work. However, some of the loiterers aggressively confront shoppers, selling them fake Apple Airpods or soliciting tips for lifting items from shopping carts into cars.

"You come out and you're a woman by yourself, they literally leech onto your wagon, and you're like, 'No, I don't need any help,'" one worker said. "And when they're following you to your car, it's unnerving." She said a female supervisor saw one of the men washing his privates with a water bottle in the lot and that several women have called customer service to complain that migrants robbed them of purses or phones. One customer told the Post how she had to pull out pepper spray when a migrant refused to back off when her husband told him that they didn't need his help.

Mayor Adams wants to expedite work permits for illegals

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has been a defender of New York's decades-old sanctuary city status, which prohibits city authorities from asking questions about a person's immigration status however, in the past few months, he has started calling out the federal government for assistance in the worsening migrant crisis in the Big Apple.

He admitted that the city is at its breaking point as residents have been confronting him about how immigrant crimes have affected the lifestyle and security of New Yorkers, following January's brutal Times Square attack on two policemen that saw most of the suspects freed on bail within hours of their arrests. (Related: Mayor Eric Adams calls for modifications to sanctuary city policy as NYC struggles to accommodate nearly 200,000 new migrants that are overrunning the city.)

Now Adams is doubling down on his push for the federal government to speed up work permits for more migrants. "If you can work from Ukraine, then you should be able to work from South and Central America, and we call on that to take place," Adams said.

He asked the federal government to expand temporary protected status to migrants from a wider range of countries so that they can get work permits faster. "At the heart of this is the right to work," Adams said. "People should have the right to provide for their families and continue to pursue the American dream."

Critics think that giving work to illegals does not guarantee a decrease in the crime rate in the city.

Meanwhile, some of the asylum seekers have taken to selling candy on the subway, including children. Adams had his people post fliers outside migrant shelters, warning them that selling items on the subway and streets is illegal and children should be in school.

"We see families trying to do whatever they can to get by, and then they have to move every 60 days and they’re at high risk of losing whatever work they did find. So, it’s not surprising to see families do things like sell candy to get by," Kathryn Kliff, of the Legal Aid Society said.
