New York City Mayor Eric Adams enraged millions of Big Apple residents this week when his office floated a new proposal that would send illegal migrants to college using taxpayers’ money.
From Fox News:
New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, is hoping to send illegal migrants to college for free, with taxpayers footing the bill that could cost around $1.2 million in the first year.
Adams’ plan, according to a report from the New York Post, could go on indefinitely and would provide an estimated 100 migrants with 12 months of classes, room and board in upstate Sullivan County.
The pilot program will be overseen by Adams’ newly created Office of Asylum Seeker Operations — which works on the coordination of the city’s continued response to a large influx of migrants with a focus on resettlement and legal services, as well as a new 24/7 arrival center for asylum seekers.
While the plan’s total cost has not been disclosed, it is likely to cost taxpayers $1.2 million in the first year, based on the price of two semesters at SUNY Sullivan.
