NYC youth soccer game canceled after migrants refuse to leave their premises

A New York City youth soccer team had to cancel its soccer game after a group of migrants refused to leave the field despite the appearance of police.

The 17-year-old Manhattan Kickers soccer team was originally scheduled to play FA Euro New York last weekend at the city’s Thomas Jefferson Park. However, when both teams arrived, a group of around 30 migrants refused to leave the premises, arguing that it was unnecessary, not only canceling the match but now creating a security risk for the teams.


Players and parents alike are understandably angry about the whole ordeal, as the status of Sanctuary City in New York has once again treated law-abiding American citizens unfairly and is now even putting the future of the city’s youth at risk.

“I asked them (the migrants) directly to leave the field and some of them kind of complied, but then four or five of them said, ‘You know what, fuck it, we don’t have to do that. If we leave, we can do whatever we want,” Kickers head coach Erik Johansson told the New York Post.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the migrants refused to leave even after the NYPD showed up. That’s how far respect for law enforcement has fallen thanks to bail reform and other policies of the city’s permissive politicians – there is literally no fear of repercussions or punishment.


Both football teams ultimately had to cancel the match entirely as the situation turned from an inconvenience to a potential safety issue.

“Even when the game is over, you don’t know if they (the migrants) are waiting for you, so even if the police throw them out, it might not be over. So we all agreed: this is too dangerous. Coach Johansson continued. Both teams said they will not return to those fields.

You can expect these types of situations to only increase in the coming weeks and months as the city has no plan to deal with the increasing number of people coming to the city – many of whom have not been vetted and some of whom have criminal histories to have.

Last year, the city ordered several youth soccer and football fields closed because they were to be used as housing for the migrants.


Youth sports are usually seen as an escape for troubled youth who do not want to come into contact with gangs. Now, however, that outlet has been taken away from them to instead house illegal immigrants.

Last year, New York Mayor Eric Adams said the city was running a $12 billion deficit, largely due to the migrant situation that he said has now spiraled out of control.

Again everyone: this is why elections have consequences.
