NY Governor Hochul Spends $2.4B on Migrant Care

On Tuesday, New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D-N.Y.) announced her budget plans regarding the ongoing mass migration crisis in the state, which includes spending at least $2.4 billion to support illegal aliens.

As reported by Breitbart, Hochul’s budget proposal includes $2.4 billion for “migrant care,” which is about half a billion dollars more than the $1.9 billion spent on illegals in the year 2023. Nearly half of that spending will focus solely on New York City, where the worst of the illegal aliens have gathered; the budget will allocate $1.1 billion to dealing with the migration crisis in the Big Apple, as part of an agreement between Hochul and Mayor Eric Adams (D-N.Y.).

New York City has consistently remained one of the top destinations for illegal aliens flooding into the country, with the Biden Administration agreeing to transport illegals to a destination of their choice. New York also received numerous busloads of illegals sent to the city by Republican Governors such as Greg Abbott (R-Texas) and Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), in an effort to force Democratic leaders and voters to face the consequences of their support for open borders.

Hochul’s plan also includes incentives for more residential construction, even as the state struggles with some of the highest rent prices and home prices in the nation.

“We still need an effective statewide approach to encourage new construction,” Hochul said in her speech. “We saw in every other state that met the challenge of building more housing — it took decades. But I approach this crisis with a sense of urgency.

New York City currently has the highest average rent prices in the country, with the average being approximately $4,040 a month; the next-highest city, Jersey City, has an average monthly rent of $3,220. Rounding out the top five most expensive rent prices in the nation are the cities of Boston, Massachusetts, at $3,000; San Francisco, California, at $2,950; and Miami, Florida, with $2,690.
