In the first six months of 2023, over 66,000 illegal immigrants let into the United States listed NYC as their destination, data from Syracuse University viewed by the New York Post reveals. This equates to around 10 percent of the 671,721 migrants let into the US so far in 2023.
In addition to the sheer amount of illegal immigrants in the city, in order to provide necessities for the migrants, the city could be spending as much as $12 billion by 2025 if the problem persists.
After repeated requests for monetary aid from the federal government and President Joe Biden, the city has received only $142 million out of the $300 million Mayor Eric Adams asked for.
Around 90,000 total migrants have been sent to the city since spring of 2022, but many have not moved on. Adam's office said that around 57,000 illegal immigrants remain in 194 shelters set up across the city as of this week.
One migrant, Daniel, told the New York Post, "The migrants who arrived before now were allowed to stay in five-star hotels."
"I think migrants are turning New York into chaos. The migrants haven’t learned to adapt to live in the US. New York gave us [migrants] a place to stay," he added. "They’re not the bad guys. Some of these migrants want to live here, how they did in Venezuela, but we’re not there anymore.”
Under the immense pressure of the continuing migration, New York even attempted to distribute flyers at the border to "consider another city" as recently as July only to have the National Guard refuse to hand them out.
The Biden Administration has touted that there had been a 70 percent drop in migration since the ending of Title 42, with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas saying that the administration is "doing so much" given the situation.
However, from the data analyzed, the number of cases referred to immigration courts in June was 118,520, the fifth-highest number since 2001.
