In We’re All Coyotes Now, I described some of New York City’s convoluted efforts to take the migrants being sent and send them somewhere else, like Canada.
Last month, New York City’s Mayor Eric Adams was pleading with Colorado’s Governor Jared Polis to stop busing migrants to New York City. And then Adams began busing migrants to Canada. Now Quebec’s Premier Francois Legault is warning Adams to stop doing it. New York City was already busing migrants to Florida.
Overloaded and low on options, NYC is building its own refugee resettlement machine.
Mayor Eric Adams announced a shift in policy on asylum-seekers that includes a more formal process of resettling migrants throughout the state and in other cities across the country.
The administration plans to brief more migrants on relocation opportunities and work with national nonprofits to identify welcoming cities across the country where they might move, Adams said. Additionally, the state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance will oversee a $25 million program to help resettle migrant families in municipalities elsewhere in New York.
We don’t want them, but hey, maybe you do?
With each migrant costing an estimated $10K a month, heading into the billions in total, spending $25 million to get rid of them is a drop in the bucket.
Adams is taking a cue from the federal government. Unlike the feds, he has no authority to do actual resettlement outside his own borders, but with refugee resettlement trojan horses already set up everywhere, he doesn’t need it.
“There are cities in the state and across the country that … want to play the role,” the mayor said. “They realize that this is a national problem.”
Nah there aren’t. Take Adams’ word for it.
The mayor, for instance, said he did not want to reveal the names of partner cities that are planning to host more migrants for fear of souring those relationships.
“Please don’t ask me which cities because I don’t need you running to the cities and stopping them,” he told reporters at the announcement.
This has real “I’ve got a girlfriend, she’s in Canada” vibes.
And yet the media keeps telling us that we desperately need more third worlders.

Despite this supposed labor shortage, nobody actually wants this horde of migrants in real life. Could the media possibly be lying to us? Hard to believe, I know, but we have to consider the improbable possibility.
