(SNews) – Democrat Mayor Eric Adams has announced new plans to house illegal migrants in the private homes of New York City’s residents.
Adams revealed his plan this week and says he hopes to place tens of thousands of illegal aliens in New Yorkers’ “spare rooms.”
“It is my vision to take the next step to this, to go to the faith-based locales, and then move to a private residence,” Adams said.
“They have spare rooms,” he added.
The mayor suggested that he could take advantage of people with “spare rooms” who are “suffering right now because of economic challenges” in NYC.
More than 72,000 illegal immigrants, most of whom are military-aged single men, have arrived in New York City since last spring, Outkick reported.
The responsibility for housing these illegal migrants won’t fall to the city’s wealthy Democrat donors and voters, however.
Those who champion open borders from inside gated communities won’t be pressured to welcome illegals into their private homes.
Instead, Adams makes it clear which New Yorkers he has in mind.
“There are residents who are suffering right now because of economic challenges,” Adams said of those he plans to target with his scheme.
“They have spare rooms.”
CBS New York found substantial resistance to the mayor’s plan, however.
“Uh huh, ha, good luck with that,” Bronx resident Allan Reese said.
Sam Waniala, also of the Bronx, insisted that the mayor is desperate.
“I think he shouldn’t do something because he’s desperate–so government interferes with our freedom and our security,” Waniala said.
