New York City Mayor Wants FEMA to Ban Busing to His City as Illegal Migrants Cost $5M Per Day

Youtube
Democrat Mayor Eric Adams of New York City has changed his stance on welcoming migrants as a sanctuary city due to economic hardship, and in March it was decided that the NYC will bus illegal immigrants to other areas of the country. Texas Governor Greg Abbott, a Republican, made a show of sending busloads of asylum seekers to Manhattan’s Port Authority starting last spring after the migrants had crossed the US southern border into his state. Since then, 58,300 asylum seekers have arrived in NYC. It was reported that the 30,000 illegal migrants housed in hotels, shelters and other facilities around the city are costing taxpayers $5 million per day. A city official said that the total cost will be for $1.7 billion this year. An independent immigration watchdog group set the overall cost of illegal immigration at a much higher $10 billion per year. Another estimate showed that taxpayers are shelling out $150,000 per migrant per year.

Mayor Adams has yet to concede that Biden’s open border policy is a disaster. Adams said, “The issue is not the asylum seeker. The issue is the fact that the national government is not doing its job.” Instead, he is calling out for more money.

Mayor Eric Adams wants the Federal Emergency Management Agency to stop other states from shipping migrants to New York City — as the number of asylum seekers arriving in the Big Apple surged to 1,300 over a three-day stretch this week, sources told The Post Thursday.

A “frustrated” Adams made the plea during an internal budget briefing Wednesday, complaining that FEMA should crack down on cities using federal grant money to move migrants to New York so the Big Apple doesn’t become more burdened by the cost of aiding them, sources with knowledge of the meeting said.

“There was an issue about the FEMA money that other places are getting that they can use that money to rent buses. Why are we giving money to send people to different cities?” a source said of Hizzoner’s plea.

Adams’ complaints came after a three-day stretch from Sunday, April 23 to Wednesday, April 26 in which 1,300 migrants came to New York City. That was part of a surge of 2,300 that came in the week since April 19.

In that same time, eight new emergency shelters opened up to cater to the growing influx, according to the data, though it wasn’t immediately clear where in the city they are located.

Adams, who last week blasted the White House for turning its back on NYC, has repeatedly begged the federal government for help — warning that the financial burden of sheltering asylum seekers is threatening the city.

Hypocrite! Mayor says : “Stop busing to our city.” Then he says “ALL ABOARD to your next stop.” Seems like the only solution is to close the border, then Texas won’t have to share the burden with NYC.

It’s a great example of poetic justice to see the foolish policies of these blue-city leftists finally hitting home and biting them in their posteriors. Socialism contains the seeds of its own destruction, but it is a long and destructive road that must be traveled to get there.
