Dems are known for coming up with hairbrained schemes, but perhaps one of the more hairbrained schemes to date has emerged from none other than New York City.
That’s right: New York City, which continues to cling to its sanctuary city status, is apparently unable to handle the influx of migrants coming into the city, and Mayor Eric Adams has gotten more and more “creative” (i.e., intrusive) in how he’s decided to house them.
Apparently, after using up all the available hotels (for now), Adams moved on to churches, paying each church $125 per migrant per night.
“No matter what faith you practice, caring for those in need is part of every spiritual tradition,” Adams declared.
Well, how inspiring.
It’s a shame such ethical principles are not embedded in standard political practices.
However, church space is limited, just like hotels.
“We should be recycling our own dollars. We should take this crisis and go to opportunities. That is how we can deal with this,” Adams mused.
That’s rich, coming from a city that can apparently lose $1B+ without noticing, as former Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s wife did with her so-called “mental health” program.
“There are residents who are suffering right now because of economic challenges, they have spare rooms, they have locales … If we can find a way to get over the 30-day rule and other rules that government has it place, we can take that $4.2 billion – $4.3 maybe now – that we potentially have to spend and put it back in the pockets of every day New Yorkers,” Adams brayed.
So, in other words, Adams has resorted to bribing New Yorkers to house migrants.
Mind you, migrants that haven’t been vetted in any significant manner.
“It’s cheaper and it’s a good investment for us to go to a family and assist them instead of placing people in large congregate settings or in these emergency hotels … And then if you are a family member where you are bilingual, you are going to be able to help the bilingual person that’s coming here,” Adams chirped.
Actually, Adams, it is “cheaper” to enforce federal immigration law, not to mention utilize city resources more effectively.
Calling on residents to basically aid and abet migrants breaking the law really takes the cake.
And, like most Dem schemes, no real plan is in place.
“Adams didn’t offer up specifics on how the plan would work – including how much New Yorkers could potentially receive per night to cover the cost of hosting a migrant. A spokesperson also did not respond when asked if the mayor would take in migrants at his home in Brooklyn,” the New York Post reported.
No kidding. Adams embodies the classic “Do as I say, not as I do” mentality.
Needless to say, Twitter users had a field day with the terrible proposal.
“Will Eric Adams set an example and house illegal immigrants in his own private residence?” one Twitter user inquired.
Definitely not. Though he may use taxpayer funds to buy himself another property for temporary quartering for PR purposes.
Speaking of quartering, that topic also emerged on Twitter.
“Remember when the Founders fought a revolution in part over forced quartering? Was a core reason for becoming a new nation,” another user chimed in.
Makes sense … After all, Dems are clearly attempting to make an entirely new, unimproved nation with their open borders policies, bought and paid for by the billionaires they cavort with behind the scenes.
Or on Epstein’s island.
