New York City Mayor Eric Adams is out of his mind.
This week, he shamelessly suggested that the government should pay New Yorkers to OPEN THEIR HOMES to border crossers and illegal aliens who are flooding into the city on a weekly basis.
Let’s take a moment to digest this absurdity.
Since last spring, over 72,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have made their way into the Big Apple. And guess who’s paying for their accommodation? That’s right, taxpayers! Over 37,500 illegal immigrants are currently living in taxpayer-funded shelters, including hotel rooms, homeless shelters, and even a former jail.
But rather than addressing the disastrous consequences of this influx – which would DEMAND he address Biden’s terrible border policies – Mayor Adams has decided to double down by proudly announcing that the city would be housing approximately 1,000 MORE border crossers and illegal aliens in 50 churches and faith-based shelters.
But his worst idea what he stated was his ultimate goal? Paying New Yorkers to house migrants in their own homes.
Mayor Adams envisions a future where struggling residents, grappling with economic challenges, are forced to open their spare rooms and locales to these illegal immigrants. He even had the audacity to suggest that the billions of dollars allocated for this endeavor could instead be put back into the pockets of hardworking New Yorkers and local houses of worship.
It’s clear that Mayor Adams has completely lost touch with reality. He conveniently ignores the fact that illegal immigration is costing New Yorkers a staggering $5 million each day. This burden is simply not sustainable for a city already plagued with countless challenges.
Instead of addressing the root of the problem and advocating for stronger border security, he believes we should guilt hardworking Americans into rewarding illegal behavior.
That is NOT the solution to our immigration crisis.
