Former GOP mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa leads protest against migrant housing at Floyd Bennett Field


Hundreds of Brooklynites joined Guardian Angels founder, radio host, and former Republican mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa to protest against the placement of migrants at Floyd Bennett Field on Tuesday. 

Sliwa, who was arrested Sunday during another protest at the Midland Beach Migrant Center, has been outspoken against asylum-seeking migrant shelters in the city.

This most recent protest came after Gov. Kathy Hochul said she and President Joe Biden’s respective administrations had reached a tentative agreement which greenlit the use of Floyd Bennett Field’s Runway 19 to be used to shelter over 2,000 migrants.
