When campaigning for mayor of New York City, Eric Adams was clear that it would remain a sanctuary city under his leadership. So states like Texas began busing migrants to New York to take advantage of all the city had to offer. By October 2022, Adams had declared a state of emergency over the number of migrants that were arriving. By January, he was saying it was “unfair for cities to carry the weight of” illegal immigrants; never mind what border towns put up with every day. Adams even went to El Paso, Texas, where he said, “There is no more room in New York.” After he returned, he suggested his support for the idea of housing large numbers of migrants in “stadium-like settings” — camps, you could say.
Now the sanctuary city mayor who can’t handle busloads of illegal immigrants is floating the idea of using spare rooms in private residences.
Eric Adams suggests housing illegal migrants in private residences in New York:

Many Democrats who support illegal immigrants should step forward and consider opening up their expansive houses and condos in rich who’re neighborhoods to provide housing for these individuals.

Will the city be held liable for any incident?

The way this man speaks you would think this was a social crisis with no other solution. SEND THEM BACK.

Works for me (as I don’t live in NYC).
Someone count all the spare rooms and send double that number to NYC. Two per room is fair.
Thank you to Mayor Adams and the Democrats who put him in office (and have spare rooms) for finally providing the sanctuary they promised. 👏🏻

People are free to do that now, especially those who support illegal immigration, but they never do. I wonder why 🤷♂️

Well, he can start by providing his home, then the governor's home, and I believe many celebrities live there or have homes there too who can also provide their homes too. But then again I don’t live there so I don’t care.

It would be so much easier to not let them all in and have an orderly legal process with annual limits.

This this is how communism worked for my family in Cuba.
You were allowed to stay living in your house, but strangers came to move in.
This is EXACTLY how communism works. All those rich progressives better be careful what they wish for!

Where can Democrats sign up for this? I’m seeing a lot buzz from them looking for info. Many are getting rooms ready right now. They are so excited.

The guy they elected mayor was out of ideas six months ago and is now grasping at anything. They’ll do anything but close the border.
