Want to know why Mayor Eric Adams is panicking? The numbers are ugly. New York City has no shortage of social problems, but Biden’s open borders crisis is really taking a bite out of the Big Apple.
Each illegal migrant costs NYC, over $10,000 a month.
New York City on average spends about $363 a day on each asylum seeker household receiving services in city shelters and emergency relief centers and is on track to spend a total of $1.4 billion by the end of the fiscal year in June, Office of Emergency Management Commissioner Zach Iscol said during a recent City Council hearing.
The cost for the “asylum seeker crisis” could double to $2.8 billion in the next fiscal year, Iscol told the panel during a hearing last week. He said the city cannot maintain that support.
That could be somewhere in the neighborhood of 2% of the city’s budget, but it piles on top of innumerable social problems that are already draining a city whose tax base is fleeing.
More than 30,000 newly arrived migrants are staying in city-run facilities. If those numbers continue to worsen, they’ll eat up even more of the budget.
City Councilmember Julie Won said, School principals complained to her of disease outbreaks after migrant school children didn’t receive necessary vaccinations.
American children suffer so Biden’s open borders can boost Democrat numbers. That’s what this is about.
It won’t hit home until home until upper east siders may require a visit to the emergency room. and there told to get in line .
Or there dog walkers complain of the smell of urine on there morning walks .
yes,,as those “ social problem’s” begins to rise. Then you will see the old liberal order begin to crack .
Daniel Greenfield says
That’s happened already and it still hasn’t hit home.

Economic migrants are not seeking asylum. Does the incidence of validity of claims by those petitioning for asylum approach one percent?
If we are functionally unable to distinguish valid claims from the expeditious ones, let’s drop the noble pretense and accept that 99% of illegals are illegals. We are idiots to proceed otherwise.
My hope is one Presidential term of ruthless enforcement will rid our land of tens of millions here illegally. Amnesty is not only unthinkable, prior amnesties should be rethought, and revocation considered.
Immigration is our greatest vulnerability. That is where our national enemy, the Left, focuses their attacks. So dangerous is it, so destructive to our national existence, that the Left is inducing nuclear war as distraction.
MAGA: making America go away is their grand mission. Is this not the price of not hanging them during the Civil War?
Mark Conley says
Would that a one-term conservative Presidency could rid us of even 10 million illegals. I doubt that is possible, but the number of illegals is surely over 30 million.

Would that a one-term presidency could turn the USA into an actual Laissez-Faire Capitalist country. The economic growth would be so astounding the economy would need another 30 million immigrants with all the dynamic job growth.
Illegal immigration is not the actual disease, it’s only one symptom among many of the actual disease that’s killing America.

Immigration is the actual killer.
Being dead is the symptom.

Moe. Try fifty.

Where in the law says that tax payers must pay for the illegals?
Have we fixed social security and health care problems for the tax paying Americans yet?
I personally don’t have any health insurance, because it’s simply unaffordable. I have to choose between paying the bills or health insurance. And I chose paying the bills over homelessness.
At this point its about the kids.
Meaning that, if we didnt have kids I’d send the spouse down to Social Services to say “me no speakee ingishee”
and get my fair share of the freebies.
I’d like to think I would do this.

“American children suffer so Biden’s open borders can boost Democrat numbers. That’s what this is about.”
This is about altruism and sacrifice and as Ayn Rand said, “It stands to reason that where there’s sacrifice, there’s someone collecting sacrificial offerings. Where there’s service, there’s someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master.”

MILLIONS OF LEGALS HOMELESS AS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY EXPANDS THE MASSIVE LA RAZA WELFARE STATE BORDER TO OPEN BORDER
Study: More than 7-in-10 California Immigrant
More than 7-in-10 households headed by immigrants in the state of California are on taxpayer-funded welfare, a new study reveals.
The latest Census Bureau data analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) finds that about 72 percent of households headed by noncitizens and immigrants use one or more forms of taxpayer-funded welfare programs in California — the number one immigrant-receiving state in the U.S.
Just imagine what our poverty rate would be if we didn’t import millions of poor people a year.
A prediction: In the near future there will be talk of land redistribution to these Indigenous Americans, even though they are indigenous to Latin America. It was after all from their northern cousins that we ”stole” this land.
It may never come to jack, like the slave reparations crap, but it will cause the wanted division.
It’s telling that the people that claim to be against colonialism are all for South and Central Americans, Africans, and Asians colonizing North America and Europe.
Bum’s rush/mass unregulated entry of persons into the US is democrat/catholic/globalist social doctrine, so Adams can run around in a little circle and cry about it or face up to the fact that the political apparatus that put him in office has chosen to do business this way.
