A new report published by Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) has revealed 125,000 migrants settled in New York between April to June 2023, higher than any city in the US.
According to the New York Post, NYC’s taxpayers are estimated to spend $US40,000 per migrant by the end of this financial year, if it continues to receive asylum seekers at the current average rate.
Mayor Eric Adams warned residents of a “financial tsunami” and said the crisis could cost the city $US12 billion over the next three years.
The Big Apple’s expenditure on asylum seekers is already bigger than the entire budget of the city of Boston.
New York’s 1980s-era ‘right to shelter’ law, which requires the city to house and feed anyone who asks, has been blamed for the unhinged influx of migrants.
