NextImg:At least five unregistered vehicles used by migrants  parked outside Floyd Bennet Field shelter towed

These migrants appear to have better rides than some Brooklyn families they’ve been hitting up for cash, food and clothes.

Authorities on Friday night towed at least five unregistered vehicles apparently being used by migrants that were illegally parked outside the city’s controversial tent shelter at Floyd Bennett Field, according to Assemblywoman Jamie Williams (D-Brooklyn)

The wild scene – which Williams caught on video and shared on Facebook — included a white pickup truck with no plates being towed from a grassy lot that is federal parkland to the dismay of at least one migrant seen pleading to gain access to the vehicle.

A minty Toyota Sienna with Florida dealership plates is also shown illegally parked along a fence near a row of electric bikes. 

Other vehicles in the lot also included two Toyota Sequoia SUVs, according to Williams.

“This is insane,” Williams fumed to the Post Saturday. “Where did they get the money [to buy vehicles]? This is bigger than all of us.”

“It is bizarre,” added Williams, who represents southeast Brooklyn neighborhoods including Marine Park and Canarsie.

“People have to wake up and realize what’s happening. These are the same people who are knocking on doors begging for food and money”

Over the past few weeks, residents in Marine Park – a predominantly working class, blue-collar neighborhood  — have openly complained about asylum seeker families showing up on their doorsteps asking for spare change and other aid. Some previously told The Post they fear for their safety.

Historic Floyd Bennett Field has become a filthy eyesore since taking in migrants in November, said Williams, ripping the Biden Administration for “turn[ing] a blind eye” to New York City’s struggles dealing with its migrant crisis.

“Floyd Bennett Field, our national park, has become a dumping ground,” she said.

The vehicles were spotted by federal park police, who had them towed. The NYPD’s 63rd Precinct also responded, said Williams. 

Messages left with the Mayor’s Office were not returned, but the NYPD said it had no report of file about the vehicles being towed.
