NY is a sanctuary city. How else are you going to pay for these people. The mayor already said all government agencies will have a 5 percent decrease in funding.

What a Mess You are in NYC.

Make foreign property owners pay a steep property tax.

New Yorkers -- and by extension, Democrats -- are such pushovers. smh

There are videos of Adams proudly declaring NYC a sanctuary City. And a more recent one saying we can't deal with this! Why are our politicians such assholes? What was he thinking 10 might show up? Either you're a sanctuary or you're not. But no way in hell should the taxpayers of NY should be paying for this. Unless of course you agree that NY is a sanctuary city. Then you should help putting up and feeding these people. Like having them in your extra rooms or in your living room.

This is an issue like trans, and MurieI will take time to come around on it. She has to figure out which direction the wind is blowing. She’s been closing down all the migrant threads.

As well she should. Don't click on the Daily Mail link.

Tax the migrants. Make them pay for themselves.

Maybe if the NYPD didn't have a blank check for overtime ($800m just in overtime so far this year), there'd be more money.

This is why politicians should be kept on very short lease with very limited power, between innate human incompetence and outrageous unintended consequences, powerful politicians and big government are not the answers

R9 tax what? Their NYS welfare checks?

After they’re here for 2 weeks, every single one of them are running around in a new pair of Nikes, and all the women have a brand new Michael Kors purse from TJ Maxx. All on the taxpayer’s dime.

Illegal Aliens on the dole.

Those that can afford to pay-- and there are plenty in this city-- should pay. Love thy neighbor. A person should be proud to contribute to the alleviation of another's suffering.

Who's anti-police? Maybe they should be subject to the same fiscal disciplines literally every other branch of city government should be.

It's only because of stupid cop-cocksuckers like R15 that they can be the lawless Mafia Crew they are.
