NYC Receives $106 Million in Federal Tax Dollars to Cover Migrant Costs

New York City has just received $106 million in federal taxpayer money as a “reimbursement” for soaring illegal migrant costs.

The massive payout was announced by Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in a post on X.

NYC will receive a fresh $106M from feds to reimbursement for migrant costs,” Schumer wrote.

Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration officials argue that the payment is part of an aid package that was “delayed.”

Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services (HHS) Anne Williams-Isom said that the $106 million is a delayed portion of a larger $150 million aid package promised last summer.

During a press conference, Williams-Isom said:

“We appreciate the productive collaboration of our federal partners, and we’ll continue to work closely with them so money can be released.

“We will continue to advocate for significantly more support, as well as for comprehensive immigration reform.”

Schumer also took a swipe at Republicans while announcing the funds.

He falsely argued that GOP lawmakers are blocking the “strong, bipartisan border bill.”

In his post on X, Schumer wrote:

“Now Republicans must stop blocking the strong, bipartisan border bill, which can deliver more.”

According to Mayor Eric Adams, New York City has spent $1.45 billion on assisting migrants in the 2023 fiscal year.

The Big Apple has rented out entire hotels to house some of the tens of thousands of migrants who have flooded the city after crossing the border illegally.

Other migrant housing arrangements have included cots in schools and temporary placements in tents.

A cruise ship terminal and a former police academy building have also been used.

As Slay News previously reported, NYC leaders provoked a backlash by closing down a high school to house illegals.

Students were instructed to home-school instead.

Over 140,000 migrants have arrived in NYC since last year.

The crisis has overwhelmed the “sanctuary” city’s social services.

The issue has prompted officials to demand more help from the federal government.
