New York Mayor Suggests Residents Let Illegal Aliens Into Their Homes

As the city of New York continues to experience a flood of illegal aliens on a weekly basis, Mayor Eric Adams (D-N.Y.) has suggested that citizens should open up their homes to illegals in order to mitigate the overflow of illegals who have already filled up most shelters and makeshift shelters.

Breitbart reports that over 72,000 illegals have come to New York City since the spring of 2022. Of those 72,000, roughly 37,500 are still in the city’s public shelter system, with shelters becoming so overrun that the city has been forced to convert hotels, schools, and other public spaces into additional illegal shelters. On Monday, Adams announced that another 1,000 illegals will be given housing across 50 different churches and faith-based facilities.

“It is my vision to take the next step to this faith-based locales and then move to private residences,” Adams said in his remarks. “There are residents who are suffering right now because of economic challenges; they have spare rooms, they have locales, and if we can find a way…we can take that $4.2 billion, $4.3 billion maybe, now, that we potentially have to spend, and we can put it back into the pockets of everyday New Yorkers.”

The current migration crisis has been estimated to cost the city of New York as much as $5 million per day, which Adams has described as “not sustainable.” But Adams said that his solution is to demand that the federal government provide more work permits for illegals, saying “we need work permits; we need a decompression strategy; we need real immigration reform.”

The first influx of illegals into New York began when several Republican governors in border states or states in close proximity to the border began sending busloads of illegals to the Big Apple, ostensibly to throw the hypocrisy of the open-borders approach right back into the face of one of the most prominent Democratic leaders in the country. Since then, many illegals have expressed a desire to go to New York City first, and many are being given transportation there by the Biden Administration, which is allowing illegals to go to the destination of their choice upon crossing the border.
