New York City Begins Handing Out Prepaid Debit Cards to Illegal Immigrants

NYC Mayor's Office/Public Domain

In early February, a $53 million no-bid deal was inked that would allow the New York City mayor's administration to start doling out prepaid debit cards to people, including those in the U.S. illegally.

We swear we're not making this up.

Fox News reports, "Officials in New York City have begun giving out prepaid debit cards to migrant families residing in the Big Apple."

"The first batch of debit cards, which are reportedly meant to be used by the illegal immigrants to purchase food and baby supplies, were handed out Monday to a handful of migrant families in the city, New York City Mayor Eric Adams' office confirmed to Fox News Digital," Fox News noted.

Needless to say, many people weren't happy about this.

The story continued:

The program, which the mayor's office confirmed will provide migrant families of four with two children under 5 with up to $350 each week until the end of their stay, began with a limited number of families on Monday and will expand to about 115 families, or roughly 460 people, over the next week.
The prepaid cards may only be used at bodegas, grocery stores, supermarkets and convenience stores. Migrants eligible for the program must sign an affidavit stating they will only spend the funds on food and baby supplies, or else they could lose access to the funds, Adams' office said.

But don't worry, Mayor Adams assured everyone they are starting small.

"Additionally, the mayor's office confirmed that the pilot program was launched using a phased approach, starting with only a few hotels," Fox News reported. "City officials have noted that the cards will be loaded with one week's worth of funds at a time and that their use would be monitored."

At a time when America's southern border desperately needs to be secured, one of America's major cities is incentivizing more people to break into the U.S. to get free money.

You really have to laugh at the audacity of these "leaders."

They can dress it up all they want, but at the end of the day these are American taxpayer dollars going into the hands of people who didn't earn it and many of whom are in the country illegally.

Maybe Eric Adams will run for president since his position on illegal immigration is so similar to Joe Biden's.
