NYC dumping more money into migrant crisis than any other US hotspot

The Big Apple took in more migrants than anywhere else in the country since last spring, and city taxpayers are on course to spend an astronomical $40,000 per migrant — far more than any of the top five cities where asylum seekers land, data analyzed by The Post shows.

Between last April through the end of July 2023, over 125,000 migrants have headed for the five boroughs, according to data on the zip codes where migrants told U.S. Customs and Border Protection they plan to settle.

The stats are tracked by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a nonprofit at Syracuse University.

That number eclipses the 110,000 tally Mayor Eric Adams announced this week.

So far this fiscal year there have been an average of 9,091 migrants settling in the city per month, with the most — 15,145, — in May.

New York City ought to take the opposite approach, and STOP spending any money on the illegal invasion.

No housing.
No food.
No medical care (not even "for the children")
No schooling.

To paraphrase a whisper I once heard in a movie:
"If you spend it, they will come..."

The more they spend, the more that "will come".

   The Border State Federal Taxpayers will pay AGAIN. 
   Bailing out all these virtue signaling 'Sanctuary Cities/States' UNLESS we get a TRUE CONSERVATIVE in the WH, that will VETO the $hit passed by Congress (Trump's veto pen never had any INK).
