According to reports, migrants are leaving New York City on a daily basis in search of a “better quality of life” in Canada by escaping the city’s homelessness, open drug use, and crime-ridden streets.
According to sources and migrants who talked to the New York Post, border crossers who came into the sanctuary city on buses, most of whom were from Texas, are leaving the city for Canada with the intention of settling there permanently.
The migrants claimed that they were receiving taxpayer-funded bus tickets to go from New York City to the border between the United States and Canada. The city is paying for border crossers to buy bus tickets out of the city, the mayor’s office of Eric Adams (D) told the Post.
Migrants revealed to the Post:
Pena said, “The military provided free bus tickets for my family and me. I’m moving to Canada to provide my family with a better quality of life.”
“I believed living in New York would provide my girls a better future, therefore I wanted to live there,” she added.
“But as the days passed, I noticed more insecurity, a large number of the homeless, a great deal of yelling and rudeness, and a great deal of drug use.”
She declared, “I’m moving to Canada for my children’ safety and future. I simply pray to God for a smooth transition and for Canada to differ from the United States.”
According to those running the shuttle service, hundreds of migrants leave New York City daily for Canada. According to the Post, tickets to exit the city cost between $40 and $70.
Since the spring of last year, roughly 50,000 border crossers have entered New York City, and almost 30,000 of them are currently staying there for free in more than 80 hotels and the city’s massive shelters like the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal.
The estimated cost for New Yorkers to clothe, house, educate, and give medical care to recently arrived border crossers over the next two years is expected to reach $4 billion, according to sources close to Mayor Eric Adams’ office.
