NYC Mayor Wants Migrants Housed in Private Homes

New York City Mayor Eric Adams unveiled a plan to shelter more migrants being sent to the city from the southern border, but his comments raised eyebrows.

New York City continues to struggle with the influx of immigrants despite billing itself as a sanctuary city welcoming to all.

“This influx of asylum seekers is a serious crisis, one that New York City is facing largely on our own. It’s unfair and it’s not right that New York is going through this,” Adams said, saying the city has spent over $1.2 billion on the crisis so far.

“As we continue to tackle this humanitarian crisis, I’m proud that through this new partnership with New York Disaster Interfaith Services, New York City’s faith community will be able to provide shelter to asylum-seekers in need at houses of worship throughout the five boroughs.”

The partnership with NYDIS, a nonprofit organization providing disaster relief throughout the city, will last two years and facilitate up to 50 houses of worship and other faith-based spaces to provide overnight shelter for up to 19 single adult males at each location, according to the mayor’s press release.

The program will provide beds for about 1,000 immigrant men, which critics have pointed to as a promotion of unsustainable economic immigration as opposed to supporting families who may be legitimately seeking asylum.

Private Home Comments Cause Concern

However, it wasn’t the mayor’s faith-based housing plan that stirred up renewed national attention.

During the announcement, Adams said his “vision” for the “next step” is for immigrants to move from faith-based housing to “a private residence”.

“There are residents who are suffering right now because of economic challenges. They have spare rooms,” Adams said.

He said he would look into circumventing certain rules and policies to apparently allow the government to rent rooms in private homes to host immigrants longer term.


    • Yep – I imagine there is lots of room at Gracie Mansion…………………..
      Wouldn’t forced (and likely uncompensated) housing of illegals be bordering on violation of the 3rd Amendment? After all, many of them are military age and quite possibly at least a potential armed force.

  1. Mayor Eric Adam needs to send these illegal immigrants to the capital and drop them off at the Whitehouse and send some to Delaware were Biden lives in the basement. I pretty sure he has plenty of room at both places

  2. “It’s unfair and it’s not right that New York is going through this,”
    Its totally just, you idiot sanctuary suckers!

  3. Why doesn’t this guy pick up the phone and call the moron in the white house? Obiden is the problem – not the immigrants

  4. NYC asked for this when it pronounced itself a sanctuary city. But the illegals could be transported by the city to the many other self-declared “sanctuaries”, like my leftist college in PA which I attended decades ago. It has empty dorm rooms.

  5. How come the Dems don’t consider moving migrants to private homes “kidnapping” like they do with Republicans who “distribute” illegals to other states as to not burden the border states with an influx of leeches on the American taxpayers? Spread the problem. Don’t the Dems WANT these immigrants in their backyards? Sure sounds like a NO!

  6. Why does the media insist on calling these foreign invaders migrants. The one world order seems to be bringing them here by hundreds of thousands to overthrow the USA government.

  7. So break the law and you get a home. Serve your country and as a homeless vet you get nothing. Great reasoning…

  8. When the Connie-rats got into power ( they cheated in f course) I told a left-leaning family member that under Communism if you had a spare room in your house the government would move a family into it and you, the home owner, just had to deal with it or be put into a gulag. He said, “that can’t happen in America”; and, here we are, 2.5 years into the Commie regime. If they change the law as Adam’s is saying, they open the door to this type of government seizure of space in your private residence. I also agree with comments to send them to DC, Delaware, Hollywood to live with the Woke, leftists, and don’t forget the Hamptons! And don’t stop a one bus load! Sen all of these places a convoy of buses!

  9. Anyone else remember how a group of ‘migrants’ were treated a few years back when they ‘arrived’ at princess’s wine property in Napa Valley? She sicced the county sheriff on them post haste even though they were ‘invited’ there AND she wasn’t even home………………….

  10. What a jerk!! Put them in your home first, then send them to DC and Delaware! Let’s see what filth and damage they do to your property! Look out folks next they’ll be trying to do
    Eminent Domain on your home!!
