NYC Mayor wants half of a $billion$ for illegal aliens

Mayor Eric Adams is desperately seeking at least $500 million in federal funding to deal with the flood of migrants into the Big Apple — leading bipartisan critics to question why he just doesn’t demand that President Biden stop the flow from Mexico.

City Hall privately asked the White House for the emergency cash midway through the summer, saying it would cover just one year’s worth of spending on the migrants who Adams has said are straining the city’s shelter system to its “breaking point,” The Post has learned.

More than 13,600 asylum-seeking migrants have arrived in New York City since the spring, according to the city’s latest official estimate.

Discussions over the request — which followed an initial, public appeal by Adams in July — have continued since then but the Biden administration hasn’t given city officials a firm answer, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

The money would in part pay the $15 million-a-month cost of operating a new tent city in The Bronx that’s set to open soon in the parking lot at Orchard Beach parking, one source said Friday.

Comment:
This looks like another case of Democrats exploiting a crisis to line their pockets.
Texas is not asking for half of a $billion$, and they have exponentially more illegal aliens.

Why does he need federal funding?

Why not just raise taxes- or God forbid, reduce government waste- in New York City?

NYC is one of the richest places on the planet, there is no reason IMHO to take money off of destitute widows in eastern Kentucky, Mississippi or other poor areas to provide welfare to the rich.

Remember
The Democrats stopped building the border fence because they said that we could not afford it.

NYC always has their hands held out....Always. They are one of the top ten cities that receive federal largess.

The Democrats are great at one thing, fucking up anything that they touch, any major city would come to mind.

If the border states would do their job, Adams wouldn’t be asking for the money to deal with their problem.
Protecting our borders is a federal issue, not a state issue. Our federal government has but restrictions on states on what they can and can’t do. Arizona was putting a law to help curtail the problem however the federal government sued the state of Arizona back in 2010 and the courts said it was a federal not a state issue. The federal government is to blame for the mess. The federal government isn’t enforcing our laws and is ignoring the issue.

Right now, several million. They are trying to get them to NY where they want to go but New York City, which is a sanctuary city, is not real happy about it.
