The illegal immigrant situation in the United States appears to be ongoing. Now, conservatives are expressing anger toward the Mayor of New York, Eric Adams.

He proposed that illegal immigrants should receive up to $15,000 of taxpayer dollars per year. As a result, some Americans now feel like second-class citizens.

The Daily Mail states that the Adams’ Immediate Response Card initiative could provide migrant families with up to $15,200 annually. The prepaid cards, partnered with New Jersey bank Mobility Capital Finance, aim to replace food services in shelters.

Allowances based on family size and children’s ages may be included. The program aims to increase humanitarian support. The pilot project will commence with 500 families at the Roosevelt Hotel, with the potential to expand to 6,500.

Despite the controversy over partner selections and concerns about program sustainability, Adams defends the initiative as a solution to the ongoing migrant crisis. The program is projected to accommodate up to 4,000 arrivals weekly.

Conservatives are expressing discontent with the project. Some are sharing memes highlighting the irony of leaders who instructed Americans to get vaccinated or lose their jobs while bringing in millions of unvaccinated and unemployed people.

Additionally, Elon Musk shared his opinions on the matter, simply saying “wow” in response to the breaking news. Scrolling through the X platform, there are indications that New Yorkers are beginning to voice support for the Republicans. They feel that voting against the Democrats will help safeguard their rights as Americans.

In related news, Virginia Democrats have advanced a bill known as the “Cover All Kids” Act. The aim is to provide taxpayer-funded comprehensive healthcare coverage to uninsured illegal immigrants under 19 years old.

The legislation was passed in the state senate on a party-line vote. It has faced criticism from Republicans, who argue that it incentivizes illegal immigration and diverts resources from legal residents. State Sen. Glen Sturtevant said, “Because of President Biden’s open-border policy, every state is now a border state––including Virginia.”

“Meanwhile, Virginia Democrats in the General Assembly are making every effort to undermine legal immigration and incentivize illegal immigration into the commonwealth,” explained the lawmaker. “This session, Virginia Democrats have introduced bills that directly incentivize illegal immigration,” Sturtevant warned.

“They want to grant illegal immigrants driver’s licenses that are valid for up to eight years. Now, they’re also working to divert limited resources from low-income Virginians to pay for healthcare for illegal immigrants. That will cost Virginia taxpayers more than $100 million just in this decade,” he continued.

Sturtevant said, “These bad policies jeopardize not just Virginia’s healthcare system but create perverse incentives that illegal immigrants will see as a green light to travel to Virginia for free schooling, driver’s licenses, and now, free healthcare.”

“We have seen the mess that sanctuary city policies have created in places like Chicago and New York. We must protect the rule of law in Virginia and ensure that Virginia citizens come first,” declared the state senator.
