NYC Considers Sending Illegals to College at Taxpayer Expense

New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) wants taxpayers to fund “free” college for illegal immigrants.

The first year alone would cost around $1.2 million, the New York Post reports.

Should taxpayers be forced to pay for illegals to go to college for "free"?

The newly created Office of Asylum Seeker Operations would oversee the Democrat mayor’s plan to send at least 100 illegals to upstate for 12 months of classes with room and board.

House Republican Chairwoman Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) told The Post Adams is “making a permanent welfare system for illegal immigrants in New York state.”

She added, “By spending New Yorkers’ hard-earned taxpayer dollars on college classes for migrants, he is incentivizing and rewarding illegal immigration simply to export the crisis of Democrats’ own making out of New York City.”

In October, Adams declared a state of emergency for the Big Apple over the city’s migrant crisis. An estimated 50,000 migrants have been processed by the city since the spring and more than 31,000 are living at city-wide emergency shelters at a cost to taxpayers of around $4.6 million a day.

An internal memo from the New York City Office of Management and Budget, which was reported by the Post last month, states that the city will spend an estimated $4.2 billion on costs related to migrants and asylum seekers that would be spent through June 30, 2023, and the end of fiscal year 2024.

Earlier this week, Adams launched a blueprint for dealing with the multibillion-dollar migrant crisis that includes resettlements outside the Big Apple and job training. He also vowed that stumping for President Biden would not prevent him from challenging the federal government’s border policies.
