The Biden administration set aside $86 million to pay for hotel rooms for homeless migrant families near the southern border, Axios reported Saturday. Roughly 1,200 migrant family members will be able to stay in hotels with the new funding.

The contract is through a non-profit called Endeavors and will last for six months, funding rooms in Arizona and Texas.

Moreover, Axios suggests that ICE is overwhelmed and does not have the ability to keep migrants housed.

Conservatives across Twitter were quick to point out the fact that thousands of homeless veterans will sleep on the street tonight while our government rushes to fund illegal immigrants staying in the country.

The article notes that hotels are likely safer for COVID-19 transmission, but they do not follow the safety protocols that border patrol facilities maintain.

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds

“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said  New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.

However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.

“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.

Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.

However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.

“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
