NYC Mayor Eric Adams: So Maybe We Should Just Start Housing Illegal Aliens In... People's Private Homes


I'm just glad we can stop pretending. These people are communists and I'm sick to death of having them deny it.

Any spare rooms at Gracie Mansion?

Mayor Eric Adams now wants to start paying every day New Yorkers to shelter migrants in their own homes -- as the Big Apple struggles to find beds for the thousands of asylum seekers still flooding into the city.

In his latest attempt to battle the ongoing migrant crisis, Adams on Monday floated a half baked "private residence" plan, which could possibly see local homeowners getting compensation to put up asylum seekers.

Hizzoner put forward the proposal as he revealed religious leaders had agreed to start housing adult male migrants overnight at 50 places of worship scattered across the five boroughs next month.

"There are residents who are suffering right now because of economic challenges. They have spare rooms. They have locales," the mayor said, arguing his private residence proposal could put money back in the pockets of taxpayers.

Adams didn't offer up specifics on how the plan would work -- including how much New Yorkers could potentially receive per night to cover the cost of hosting a migrant. A spokesperson also did not respond when asked if the mayor would take in migrants at his home in Brooklyn.

He did say, however, that the city would pay places of worship a nightly rate of about $125 for each asylum seeker -- which is cheaper than the $380 it costs to put up a migrant household -- including a family with kids or just single adults -- in one of its shelter hotels.

Mayor Eric Adams said the city will work to "find a way" to get around city government rules that typically bar the city from housing homeless people in private homes.

If the private residence plan went ahead, it could mean New Yorkers are being paid more to host a migrant than a foster parent is given to raise a child in the Empire State.

First they offer money and ask nicely for volunteers. Eventually they stop asking.

Meanwhile: Katrine Jean-Pierre complains that red states shipping Biden's Illegals to blue cities puts strains on those cities.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre condemned the practice of transporting migrants because of the "pressure" it puts on non-border states and cities, a statement that kicked over a beehive of criticism online.

Over the past year multiple state governors have made headlines by sending busloads of migrants from America's southern border to liberal areas like Chicago, New York City and Martha's Vineyard. While some consider the bussing to be nothing more than trolling or a political stunt, it has been affective, with liberal mayors complaining about the effects of migrants on their cities.

During Monday's press briefing, Jean-Pierre appeared to echo those blue state concerns and her admission that unchecked immigration overwhelms localities amused many conservatives.

"I've said it many times from here repeatedly from this podium that bussing or flying migrants around the country without any coordination with the federal government - we've talked about this, state or local officials as well - is dangerous and unacceptable," she said. "We will continue to be very, very clear about that. It is dangerous and unacceptable, because you're putting people's lives at risk."


Many found grim irony in her warning that states and small towns are being overwhelmed by such "dangerous and unacceptable" activity.

"Oh, no way?" conservative commentator Guy Benson replied sarcastically.
