While Illegals Have the Welcome Mat Extended, NYC Homeless Task Force to Help Americans a Total Failure

New Yorkers are suffering, but that hasn’t stopped Adams from offering illegals  free healthcare, housing, food, other supplies and even free phones.

While American citizens are suffering under the disastrous Biden administration’s porous border policy, illegals continue to receive better resources than many of our homeless veterans, children aging out of foster care and other Americans in need.

NYC Mayor Eric Adams bends over backwards to roll out the welcome mat for illegals. But a new analysis of NYC administration task force heralded as the solution for the numerous and dangerous homeless encampments plaguing the city has proven largely ineffective.

In Mississippi, where elected officials have a long history of praising self-sufficiency and condemning federal antipoverty programs, a welfare scandal has exposed how millions of dollars were diverted to the rich and powerful — including pro athletes — instead of helping some of the neediest people in the nation.

The misuse of welfare money rankles Nsombi Lambright-Haynes, executive director of One Voice, a nonprofit that works to help economically vulnerable communities in Mississippi.

“It’s shameful and disgusting, especially when we’ve been a state where we hear discussion every year about poor people not needing resources and poor people being lazy and just needing to get up to work,” she said.
