Now NYC is housing them in school gyms.

Cool.
Welcome to America
It's not that bad according to my Tanko meter
If you are staying, the ol Tanko meter says NYC still a fabulous place to live :-)


Under that criteria you must love DeSantis' policies you wintered in FLorida and you stayed in the US when Trump was in power, what a great country it was then. You must have loved it.

I'm out of Florida and probably never go back again
How's that

These blue sanctuary states are in trouble.

They've been getting federal government money (red tax-payers) disguised as other forms to balance their budgets.

Then they spend it like they're trillionaires.

But rest assured, they'll get bailed-out again, and they'll do it in stealth mode.

That's approximately 500,000 more than I care about; I don't live in NYC and don't care what they do or who lives there.

Actually, lots of restaurants hiring around me. Perhaps they could send us a few buses' worth.



It doesn't bother me until they get federal tax-payer funding to make their budgets.

The people there voted for it so hopefully they are enjoying the influx.



It'll likely double quickly.

Maybe triple.

I just read there were about 500,000 undocumented illegal persons in NYC.


The estimate in 2018 was 560,000. Has to be much higher than that today.

Just like they did in Arizona.

100,000 could be a strain.

So, I am a big fan of scam baiting videos. And, I watched the above last night. Long video summarized= scam where a Chinese Man illegally enters country to pick up a large amount of cash.

They confront him in a hotel room and call the police. The police let him walk out (despite admitting to the fraud and being in the country illegally), and the police keep saying "it is a Sancturary city". Even the Chinese scammer seems shocked that he can just walk (my guess is the Chinese police would have a different response). And, the police go on to say how they let an illegal walk who was charged with a double homicide because it is a sanctuary city (about 1:10 of the video).

If this is what conservatives are outraged about, I do not blame them. My respect for sanctuary cities is certainly going down. This is not chasing down illegals for immigration violations (which you can argue if local police should be involved in), this is letting illegals walk from major crimes because it is too politically bothersome to book them. This is bad for law and order.

New York, San Francisco Office Buildings Are Absolute Ghost Towns

Things are so bad, in fact, that 26 Empire State Buildings could fit into New York City's empty office space, as occupancy in the city is hovering around 50% of prepandemic levels, according to the chair of Harvard Economics Department, Edward Glaeser and MIT's Carlo Ratti.

Guiliani started the national sanctuary city mess in 1994. It was initially intended to protect undocumented witnesses and undocumented crime victims from being reported to immigration services. Then he went overboard with it, and other cities quickly followed.
