New York Sees Cost Of Migrant Influx Soar

New York City’s migrant crisis will cost “at least” $596 million in public funds each year, according to a Monday report from the city’s Independent Budget Office.

City Hall will rack up the costs thanks to offering shelter, healthcare, education and legal aid to thousands of migrants who have been bussed to the city by Republican state governments in Florida and Texas, according to the New York Post.

The arrival of an additional 10,000 asylum seekers — assuming the current mix of households remains consistent — would increase costs by around $246 million,” IBO Acting Director George Sweeting wrote in the report.
