New Yorkers Charged $5 Million Every Day to House, Feed, Care for Migrants:
New Yorkers are being charged millions every day to house, feed, and care for newly arrived border crossers bused from Texas.
Since the spring of last year, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and other governors have bused nearly 50,000 migrants to New York City — a sanctuary jurisdiction that has long prided itself on shielding illegal aliens from arrest and deportation.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ office confirmed that New Yorkers are being charged close to $5 million every day to provide housing and food for the roughly 30,000 migrants who remain in the city’s care.
New York City Emergency Management Commissioner Zach Iscol told the media that the costs of illegal immigration to New Yorkers will eventually come to a head.
“This is not sustainable,” Iscol said.
Already, New Yorkers have been forced to spend some $650 million on newly arrived border crossers and the total figure is expected to exceed $4 billion by next year. Much of that cost is being spent on migrants whom Adams has placed in multiple luxury hotels, for free, which is transferring millions from local taxpayers to wealthy landlords. --->READ MORE HERE
NYC official says city is spending an estimated $5M a day on housing, feeding migrants:
New York City is spending nearly $5 million a day to house and feed thousands of migrants — but the Big Apple is still barely getting a dime in aid from President Biden and Gov. Kathy Hochul.
The mind-blowing cost of the crisis was revealed Friday afternoon after city Emergency Management Commissioner Zach Iscol told a City Council panel that Gotham’s Department of Homeless Services and Health & Hospitals each spend an average of $363 daily to provide food and shelter for just a single migrant.
Given that there are more than 30,000 migrants currently being housed in city taxpayer-funded facilities, that would amount to a daily staggering bill of $10.89 million.
City Hall then waited until Friday night to officially correct Iscol’s comments.
Iscol never weighed back in.
After Mayor Eric Adams’ administration refused for several hours to go on the record, a spokeswoman, Kate Smart, finally wrote in an e-mail to The Post that “$364 per household is the per diem for asylum seekers.”
Based on what City Hall would only say on background earlier, “there are 12,700 households currently in our care,” that puts the daily migrant cost for the city still at a colossal $4,622,800. --->READ MORE HERE
