Report: Migrants Using Taxpayer Funded Bus Tickets to Leave NYC for Canada to Escape the Crime-Ridden City
“But as the days went by, I saw insecurity, many homeless people, many people who shout and are disrespectful, and many people on drugs.”
Even the migrants cannot tolerate the crime, drugs, filth, and homeless problems of New York City.
The New York Post reported migrants are using taxpayer-funded bus tickets to Canada to escape New York City.
Venezuelan native Raymond Peña told the publication the military gave him the tickets. He wants to go “to Canada for a better quality of life for my family.”
Manuel Rodon, another Venezuelan, cited the drugs:
Venezuelan native Manuel Rodon, 26, who arrived in Plattsburgh around 4 a.m. Saturday, said he decided to leave the city after getting “kicked out” of the Row NYC hotel near Times Square and relocated to a homeless shelter in Brooklyn.
Rodon described the shelter as “OK” except for the American residents.
“A lot of the Americans used drugs there,” he said. “I feel like Canada will be safer. It is a much quieter country than America.”
Rodon, who crossed the border about an hour after getting to Plattsburgh, said he knew eight other Venezuelans who’d made the same trip.
“They all got free tickets, too. It was the same process,” he said. “It took them three days through customs. They are all safe. They live in Montreal.”
Rodon wanted to become a citizen and get his papers to work in construction. But he said it’s “very difficult to get papers in America.” He needs to work so off to Canada!
A family from Peru went to Canada because their daughter saw migrants taking the trip on a TikTok video.
Susy Sanchez Solzarno, 33, said the family stayed in a NYC Mariott for a month:
“I wanted to live in New York because I thought it would be a better future for my daughters,” she said. “But as the days went by, I saw insecurity, many homeless people, many people who shout and are disrespectful, and many people on drugs.”
Solzarno said she sold candy in the subway system for almost two weeks to pay for their trip.
“I am going to Canada for the safety and future of my girls,” she said. “I only ask God that everything goes well and that Canada is not like the United States.”
The New York Post received confirmation from a National Guard source that soldiers told the migrants who to see to get the tickets at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan. Someone at City Hall said Mayor Eric Adams gives money to “various companies that run programs for migrants that include ‘re-ticketing’ so they can travel to other cities.
Migrants hear that Canada “is the place to go.” It’s a sanctuary country because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau bragged his country has a long “proud and longstanding tradition of welcoming people seeking safety.”
The buses go through Plattsburgh, NY, each day. Shuttles then take the migrants to the Canadian border.
New York Post reporters saw ripped-up pieces of paper from the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement in one shuttle van.
Chad’s Shuttle Services operates one of the three vans to the border. The reporters hitched a ride on one with a driver named Tyler Tambini:
Driver Tyler Tambini, whose girlfriend’s brother owns the company, said passengers arrive like clockwork on the five buses from New York City that stop in Plattsburgh each day.
“There’s gotta be 100 people a day,” said Tambini, 23. “I do this all day. They get dropped off and I take them the rest of the way.”
Tambini said his employer charged single migrants $40 to $50 each and families $90. Taxi drivers, who charge single migrants $70 each, compete for business by rushing to the buses to solicit passengers and help them with their luggage.
The van takes the migrants “to the end of rural Roxham Road, just steps from the Canadian border.” The migrants follow a path to a bunch of metal sheds.
A Mountie tells the migrants they “have entered Canada” and “are under arrest.” They need to put everything in their bags. They can keep money in their pockets.
The migrants follow the Mounties up a ramp “and into a shed for processing.”

Guess that is one plan on how to address the influx of migrants here. Trudeau will probably show off his cruel side.
Are they going to claim refugee status? If so, from where? They hardly qualify, but that doen not matter anymore.
Trudeau’s dream: more Liberal voters.
Legault’s nightmare: they aren’t French speaking.
How they vote in the future is far from certain.
How their ballots will be counted in both New York and Canada is far more certain.
I accept. A bus ticket out of the country is cheaper than letting them stay here.
So, I guess we need to send more of them to NYC….
Well, if some left, they have more room now.
It’s the “Martha’s Vineyard Protocol”.
Leaving for Canada? That’s pretty bad when there’s so much crime that even migrants leave. Maybe they should consider going back to where they came from.
New York City is so bad that the illegal migrants are fleeing for Canada? Is it worse than Mexico, Honduras, Venezuela?
Eric Adams es el problema.
the problem started long before Eric Adams, even before John V. Lindsay
“many people who shout and are disrespectful”
They should have looked “New York” up in the dictionary before coming here.
More disrespectful than committing a crime to enter the US?
It’s the J6 defense: “It’s not a crime if you’re invited!”
Unfortunately, it works for everybody but J6’ers.
Cuba and Honduras not so bad after all? Better weather too. Pass the word back home.
The left that invited you can’t protect you. What a surprise.
And people thought that there was no way to get them to leave the country. Abbott strikes again. What a guy.
This is all so delicious.
Can’t wait to see Trudeau turn into Adams II: “No room at the sanctuary inn!”
By all means.
Canada will fit right in on their Marxist upbringing, and there still is money to be milked from Capitalists while it lasts.
I admit to being torn. I like the idea of getting rid of hostile foreign invaders. But I also like the idea of New York and other Leftist areas getting the consequences of what they have been demanding that everybody else endure. Then there is the suspension by decree of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Liberties a couple of years ago during the truckers’ strike, and now the law going into effect giving the Canadian government control of what is in the press and on the internet.
I guess the best case is to ship more invaders to Democrat cities and let the export them to foreign tyrannies.
It turns out the migrants got the consequences of what the leftists voted for.
What I don’t understand is why Canadian subjects can’t get in or out of their own country due to their strict COVID documentation requirements, but (as always) illegals can just waltz right in.
The Canadian government is Leftist, to a degree that makes our Democrats drool in envy. In all Leftist polities, laws only apply to those who want to be law abiding. Criminals are coddled.
Make sure we don’t let them back in.
What the article doesn’t mention is that the number of illegal immigrants crossing from Canada into Maine and New Hampshire is at it’s highest level ever. They’re mostly Central Americans people “returning” to the US after illegally entering Canada and learning what a shithole it is.
When FL and TX use taxpayer funded buses and planes to transport illegal aliens, all of whom volunteered and signed waivers, to NY, MA, and elsewhere, prosecutors in those States and the Federal Govt tried to put the Govs of FL and TX in prison.
Then, they do the EXACT SAME THING to get rid of illegal aliens in their jurisdictions.
And, of course, the Federal Govt flies illegal aliens from the border and dumps them in the interior every single day. By the thousands. And it never makes the news.
Under Obama, and now again under Biden, the Feds fly illegal alien children directly from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to towns and cities in the US and place them in homes of illegal aliens who are not their relatives. Supposedly to save them the “dangers” of the trip to the US.
Also, not “news”. Most Americans don’t even know this is happening. But it is, EVERY SINGLE DAY. Its a full time job. The planes fly back and forth continuously.
By “migrants” do you mean “illegal aliens?”
Or “foreign invaders”
Can NYC ship its other criminals to Canada? Politicians might agree if they’re exempted.
Wrong link. The headline/link that took me here read: “AP fact check on Florida requesting menstrual cycle data …”
Those who think we need immigration (illegal or otherwise) because we have to staff our nursing homes and re-fund Soc. Security with working people, ekktc., have to admit, these illegals who want to get out of the US asap because of drugs, violence, etc. are the “good” ones who have higher standards for themselves and their children, who are not bringing in drugs, are not gang members and are not seeking welfare. Admittedly these may be few, but they are the ones we would want to keep. This is an embarrassment for America, but it is what happens when you don’t enforce your own laws and are no longer a country of the rule of law, you do truly become as bad as the countries sending them. I think we’re full circle now.
To put it another way, it’s the Mariel boatlift all over again, except this time it’s self-screening for the same results.
One wonders who is doing all that stuff these new, Unassimilated Americans so object to. Also curious if bus tickets are to be had, why not to the Progressive Utopia of California?
Bus tickets are priced by the mile.
