On Monday, NYC Mayor Eric Adams (D) revealed his next absurd plan to start housing illegal immigrants in private residences.
New York City, a Democrat-run sanctuary city, is struggling to house the overwhelming number of illegal aliens being sent to them from the southern border.
The first plan was to house immigrants in NYC hotels with taxpayer money. As those hotels filled up and got trashed by the immigrants, Adams began to move them into public school gymnasiums that are being converted into shelters for asylum seekers despite outrage from both students and their parents.
Adams’ next move was to enlist houses of worship to begin sheltering immigrants, which he spoke about on Monday during a press conference. According to Adams, about 50 faith-based locations will help house asylum seekers, and each location will be able to house about 19 adult men.
“As we continue to tackle this humanitarian crisis, I’m proud that through this new partnership with New York Disaster Interfaith Services, New York City’s faith community will be able to provide shelter to asylum seekers in need at houses of worship throughout the five boroughs,” said Adams. “Not only will this increase the space we have by nearly 1,000 beds, but it will also connect asylum seekers with local communities.”
These accommodations will be paid for by the city, costing taxpayers $65 per night per migrant.
New York City has already spent $1.2 billion on trying to house approximately 45,900 asylum seekers.
During the same press conference, Adams also revealed his plans for housing migrants in private homes throughout the city.
“It is my vision to take the next step to this faith-based locales and then move to a private residence,” said the NYC mayor. “There are residents who are suffering right now because of economic challenges, they have spare rooms, they have locales… We can take that $4.2 billion – $4.3 [billion] maybe now – that we anticipate we have to spend and we can put it back in the pockets of everyday New Yorkers, everyday houses of worship instead of putting it in pockets of corporations.”
