New York City’s new pilot program is currently set to dole out $10,000 in prepaid debit cards to crowds of “asylum seekers” living in overcrowded shelters. Mayor Eric Adams claims his pilot program would begin with 500 families staying at the luxurious Roosevelt Hotel, and could cost upwards of 53 million dollars.

Context: The scheme was originally hatched to solve the wasteful issue of feeding migrants, who largely rejected meal plans set up by the resettlement company, DocGo, in 2023. According to early reports, the city’s new contract to supply debit cards with New Jersey-based Mobility Capital Finance (MCF) is “open-ended,” requiring no ID check, and has no built in restrictions or fraud control.

Why This Matters: Feeding, caring, and sheltering thousands of non-White migrants continues to be a costly “boondoggle” for the American taxpayers, with local and state governments increasingly seeking aid from Federal sources. According to the White-Papers Policy Institute, the American taxpayer has been footing the bill for their own replacement for some time.

  • Illegal immigration costs each American taxpayer $957 per year.
  • 70% of all income tax in the United States is paid by White Americans
  • White Americans are paying for their own demographic replacement

In the headlines: Uncontrolled immigration and a surge of third world migrants have brought with it an uptick in crime. In recent arrests, the NYPD discovered that some migrants belonged to a notorious Venezuelan prison gang, which has now grown inside the United States thanks to lax policies on the southern border.
