In a move that epitomizes the “America Last” ethos, Mayor Eric Adams’ administration has initiated a controversial $53 million pilot program, purportedly designed to assist illegal immigrant families in New York City, the New York Post reported.
As part of this initiative, the city intends to provide pre-paid credit cards to illegal immigrant families housed in upscale hotels such as the Roosevelt Hotel. Managed by the New Jersey-based Mobility Capital Finance (MoCaFi), it is designed to replace existing food services, granting migrants the freedom to purchase their groceries and baby supplies.
The amount loaded onto the cards will vary based on family size and income, with a four-person household potentially receiving up to $1,000 a month, or $35 daily. These cards will be reloaded every 28 days.
Initially targeting a pilot group of 500 individuals, the city plans to potentially extend this offering to accommodate the entire number of illegal aliens staying in the hotels, which is approximately 15,000.
“Not only will this provide families with the ability to purchase fresh food for their culturally relevant diets and the baby supplies of their choosing, but the pilot program is expected to save New York City more than $600,000 per month, or more than $7.2 million annually,” Adams spokesperson Kayla Mamelaksaid.
New York Post reported:
The city has been shelling out about $11 per meal to feed migrant families in hotels, something that’s long posed a problem as some asylum seekers from various countries in Central and South America, Africa and Europe may be looking for a taste of home.
Just last month, the controversial company DocGo was found to be wasting thousands of dollars on uneaten meals.
Migrants confessed to The Post in the days after that they would rather cook in their hotel rooms because the provided meals were so “bad.”
