NYC Giving Migrants Housing — in YOUR HOUSE

Published

Knowledge Nuggets:

  • Mayor Eric Adams suggests paying New Yorkers to house migrants as a solution to the ongoing migration challenge.
  • Over 72,000 migrants, including border crossers and illegal aliens, have arrived in NYC since last spring, with more than 37,500 residing in the city’s shelter system.
  • The current migrant housing arrangement costs taxpayers approximately $5 million daily, a situation Adams deems unsustainable.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams, in an attempt to address the ongoing immigration crisis, proposes that the city government could incentivize residents to open their homes to migrants.

The city has received more than 72,000 migrants, including border crossers and illegal aliens, since last spring, straining the city’s shelter resources. Over 37,500 of these individuals currently reside in the city’s shelter system that includes hotel rooms, homeless shelters, and a repurposed jail.

Speaking on Monday, Mayor Adams voiced his hopes for this transition from faith-based shelters to private homes, leveraging the potential funds allocated to the crisis, approximately $4.2-$4.3 billion, to stimulate the local economy.

This novel strategy intends to aid NYC residents experiencing economic hardships while simultaneously addressing the housing needs of the new arrivals.

The mayor recognized the unsustainable nature of the current situation that costs New Yorkers around $5 million daily.

However, rather than halting the influx, he advocates for federal actions such as accelerating work permits for migrants, establishing a decompression strategy, and implementing real immigration reform.

Clear Thoughts:

The proposal from Mayor Eric Adams to incentivize New Yorkers to house migrants is a thought-provoking one. On the surface, it seems like a compassionate and practical solution to a pressing issue. However, it must be scrutinized against a backdrop of fiscal responsibility and long-term effectiveness.

It’s undeniable that New York City is dealing with a significant influx of migrants. This influx, coupled with the high costs of maintaining the shelter system, poses a critical challenge for the city. While Adams’ proposal could provide immediate relief, it does not address the root causes of this influx.

Suggesting that we turn New Yorkers’ homes into makeshift shelters for migrants is a departure from our traditional understanding of immigration policy. While offering immediate assistance is a commendable and humanistic approach, it’s important to ensure such policies do not unduly burden taxpayers or unwittingly create a system of dependency. As well as cause potentially community shattering effects. Imagine if a family opens up their home to an illegal immigrant and a crime commences against home owner and this story goes viral it becomes a DOA program, that will likely cost Adams his job. God forbid this happens.

    OMG- have you seen the reports, photos and complaints from hotel/motel owners? Drugs, unclean, partying at all hours, and worse. You think they would behave themselves in someone else’s home? Are you kidding me? These people have NOT been vetted. I wonder if it would get to the point NYers have no choice? Forced to take in- just wait and see! It will not be voluntary- will become MANDITORY Putting someone in someone else’s home having NO idea who they are, if criminals-mentally ill etc.! If this happens and people accept this- you could possibly signing your own death warrant. Or it could go the other way- putting illegals/younger folks in with Pedos? traffickers? Wowzers good luck NY you all voted for this. Wonder how many Adams will take in?! The rest of the ‘officials’. How bout Hochuli? Fill up the Gvnrs house? WHY NOT?!Betcha NOT one!! Don’t worry- MSM will cover up any ‘acciidents”! They will only show the one out of thousand that works our right.Good Luck with this bonehead move.And he was supposed to be smart.I hope people stand up against.

    Maybe New York residents would agree AFTER the mayor houses a bunch in his OWN HOME.

    Wouldn’t it be less costly and safer to repatriate them to their native homeland?

    It sounds like the mayor has been taking advice from Kathy Hochul with this stupid idea. Apparently, he has been living in a shell again since he hasn’t heard story after story and pictures released of these disgusting people in hotel rooms, wasting food that should go to US citizens, destroying and looting homes as well as assaulting and murdering people.

    When are the US Citizens and GOP going to start a much needed civil war to clean up this country to take it back from the enemy of this country, the democrats wnd RINOS? How much does this country have to lose, illegals, criminals, other countries destroying or bombing this country before people get on the wagon to get their country back? By that time it’s too late and its already happening. It was the British are coming now it’s the illegals are coming! Get the point yet?!!!

    Why not house then in Martha Vineyard. Yall rich and got more space then you need, Not to mention money too. Yall cryed when Republicans sent your illegals there. But you won’t take them in yourselfs. Shows how you really feel about your illegals. Don’t fall for the democrats BS. if you take them in and the money the democrats offer, your land lord will raise your rent and you will lose that money your getting for taking them in and will cost you more in the long run. That’s what the democrats aren’t telling you. Make you think you will make out on that deal for making the democrats look good with a lie.

    The people that are saying “Yeah, that’s a great idea” and have the space are the same ones who will add “but not in my neighborhood”. The people who would benefit from this likely do not even live in houses, instead they have apartments and no available space for illegal aliens.

    Here is a thought: Rescind the sanctuary city status for NYC. Then tell Joe to close the border.

    LET THEM MOVE IN WITH THESE CORRUPT DEMOCRATS, BIDEN INVITED ALL THESE CRIMINAL ELEMENTS IN TO OUR COUNTRY. ANYONE WITH HALF A BRAIN WOULD NEVER INVITE THESE ILLEGALS IN TO THEIR HOME. LET THEM KNOCK ON JOE AND JILLS DOOR, THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS BIG MESS.YEARS AGO PEOPLE COULD NOT ENTER THIS COUNTRY UNLESS THEY HAD A SPONSER, BESIDES THEIR WHOLE FAMILY GOT CHECKED OUT BY THE POLICE, ANYONE HAVING A RELATIVE WAS DENIED ENTRY. BUT BIDEN MUST LOVE CRIMINALS. HE ABOLISHED OUR POLICE, DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THE CITIZENS SAFETY. WHAT A THUG HE IS. NOTHING PRESIDENTIAL ABOUT JOE,
