‘They keep coming because you are giving them free housing’

Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis of New York blasted Democratic Mayor Eric Adams of New York City over his plan to house migrants in private residences.
“It’s absolutely outrageous. Not only does New York City have a housing crisis, but we also have an affordability crisis,” Malliotakis told Fox Business host Ashley Webster on “Varney and Company.” “People are renting apartments in New York City for thousands and thousands of dollars. People are having difficulty paying their mortgages, paying their rent, keeping up with their property taxes that have increased year after year, and the mayor is now telling hard-working taxpayers that they need to pay so an individual who crossed into our country illegally at the border last week can live rent-free? I mean, what planet are we living on?”
Adams said during a Monday news conference that houses of worship would open up in July to house migrants and suggested putting migrants in residents’ “spare rooms” to accommodate some of the 72,000 migrants that have arrived. Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul of New York has clashed with suburban counties that have raised objections to taking in migrants, according to CBS New York.
