New York Taxpayers To Foot $325 Million Bill for Private Security for Migrants
The cash is paying for guards at the multiple shelter sites housing some 22,000 migrants across NYC.
Security contracts for New York City’s humanitarian relief centers for migrants are costing taxpayers close to $325 million, as the city seeks to offer 24/7 protection.
Meanwhile taxpayers have zero protection in the subway when traveling to and from WORK . The police response time is about 10 minutes for taxpayers in emergency situtions FAIR ???
COMING TO A CITY NEAR YOU …
They deserve everything that happens to their f***ed up city. I won’t lose any sleep over it…lol.
Well they have more rights than working citizens today . Just add them to the long list of " the protected class " .
NYC’s migrant ‘crisis’ is one of its own making — we cannot house the world
New York City’s migrant crisis is turning into something out of a Marx Brothers movie, only it’s not funny and has no end in sight.
The city is facing a massive hotel and food bill for its “newest neighbors” at the same time tax revenue has plummeted.
But instead of pulling in the welcome mat and saying, “Sorry, no vacancies,” we are getting ready to cut spending on police, libraries and other municipal services.
Calling the situation a “crisis” is a misnomer. A crisis comes from something unexpected, like an illness or a widespread financial collapse.
But New York City’s problem — accepting hundreds of thousands of migrants from around the world and taking on the responsibility of feeding and housing them indefinitely — is totally self-imposed.
It’s like lighting your bed on fire and wondering why the house burned down.
Almost a half-century ago New York, facing a series of public-interest lawsuits, agreed to provide shelter to a few hundred homeless hard cases.
That original consent decree mushroomed into the multibillion-dollar shelter system that, until just a few years ago, cared mostly for local New Yorkers — especially single mothers and their children — who couldn’t afford a place to live.
The “right to shelter” is totally unique in America. Until recently, no other jurisdiction accepted the premise it is the public’s responsibility to house and feed anyone who demands it.
New York is a sanctuary city, after all, and has always tolerated people working “off the books.” Why sign up to pay taxes when you can work for cash, and there’s no penalty for doing so?
Los Angeles spending $262,000 per homeless person?
There are several claims that the government will be more than willing to spend on immigrants than America’s own homeless people. Furthermore, many are still upset at the amount spent in order to give homes to barely 300 people. Despite this, the cost could’ve been spent on other things as well to alleviate the situation for others.
In addition to this, bold claims stating that politicians are lining their pockets with these funds are made. There are others who state that it is rather expensive to have brainstorming sessions and ideas on how to solve this crisis. Regardless, the amount is still an eye-watering amount.
Where are the LIBERAL CELEBS and POLS paying for them with their money!!! This is the " benefit " of SANCTUARY CITIES or just putting out the welcome mat.
Next LIBERAL CELEBS will have a national telethon for the illegals similiar to the old Jerry Lewis MD telethon or those OBNOXIOUS local PBS telethons.
All those MF do is talk let them house those turds in their 45 room mansions…
More than 10 million people have crossed the border illegally since Biden took office; that number is larger than the individual populations of 41 of the 50 states.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform published a comprehensive report last year showing that federal, state, and local expenditures for illegal immigration are approaching $360 billion annually.
Illegal immigrants also distort congressional representation. They are counted in the decennial census population tallies, so their presence vastly increases congressional representation for states with more of them. That reduces the voting power of citizens in states with lower populations.
Massachusetts Governor, The Boston and New York Mayors are asking residents to house illegals!
Why dont they take them in to set an example.
NYC Mayor Eric Adams defends housing migrants at high school amid backlash
“We did the right thing,” Mayor Eric Adams told “GMA3.”

The influx of migrants at the southern border is having an impact across the country, including in…
New York City Mayor Eric Adams defended temporarily housing migrants in a Brooklyn high school ahead of a winter storm this week, amid backlash over the administration’s handling of the migrant crisis.
City officials relocated hundreds of migrants from a shelter at Floyd Bennett Field, a former airfield, to James Madison High School Tuesday night due to concerns over the strong winds associated with the storm. The high school pivoted to remote learning the following day.
The move has been met with broad criticism, with parents denouncing the temporary closure of the school and elected officials from across the political spectrum calling on the city to find a more sustainable solution to housing migrants, particularly during the winter.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams speaks during a news conference at City Hall, Dec. 12, 2023, in New York.
Homeless rights advocates at the Legal Aid Society and the Coalition for the Homeless called the last-minute evacuation “traumatic and disruptive” for migrant families.
Among more extreme reactions, the school received several hate calls and a bomb threat, city officials said.
They are simply dem tools for election purposes .
Under current policy all persons — not just citizens — are included in the population count when apportioning seats to states in the U.S. House of Representatives and for votes in the Electoral College, which is based on House seats. Although we focus on the next census in 2020, the impact of immigration has been building for decades as the number of people settling in the country has increased dramatically. This report examines the cumulative impact of immigration, both legal and illegal, on the apportionment of House seats; this is not an analysis of the impact of immigration only since the previous census. Apportionment is a zero-sum system; by adding more population to some states rather than others, immigration will continue to significantly redistribute political power in Washington.
Biden should have the wealthy Liberals pay their " FAIR SHARE " of taxes for illegals support.
