While New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) has been complaining about "extremely painful" budget cuts, and warned that the flood of migrants thanks to the Biden administration's open-border policies "will destroy New York City," somehow - somehow, Adams' administration has found it in the budget to allocate $53 million towards handing out pre-paid credit cards to migrant families living in Big Apple hotels, the NY Post reports.

According to the Post;

It’ll start with a group of 500 migrant families in short-term hotel stays and will replace the current food service offered there, according to City Hall.

The cards can only be used at bodegas, grocery stores, supermarkets and convenience stores — and migrants must sign an affidavit swearing they will only spend the funds on food and baby supplies or they will be kicked out of the program.

The Immediate Response Card initiative appears akin to the state’s food stamp program, dubbed SNAP, which provides lower-income New Yorkers with a credit card to cover the cost of meals, and will provide funds based on the same scale.

If the program is a success, NYC will expand it to all migrant families staying (for free) in hotels - roughly 15,000, according to the report.

"Not only will this provide families with the ability to purchase fresh food for their culturally relevant diets and the baby supplies of their choosing, but the pilot program is expected to save New York City more than $600,000 per month, or more than $7.2 million annually," said Adams spokesperson Kayla Mamelak, apparently employing some type of heretofore unknown math.

The program is similar to a bill proposed in California which would give unemployment benefits to illegal immigrants.

50 Cent is not havin' it

In response to New York City's program to take care of illegal migrants before their own homeless population, rapper 50 cent took to Instagram to tell his 31 million followers he might vote for Trump...

"WTF mayor Adams call my phone, I don’t understand how this works," he posted, adding "I’m stuck maybe TRUMP is the answer. "

 The comment comes days after rapper Snoop Dog said he has "nothing but love and respect" for the former President (who he once rapped about assassinating).

Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., said in an interview with British newspaper The Sunday Times that he’s still not sure who he'll endorse in the election. But he made clear his view of the former president on a more personal level.

I have nothing but love and respect for Donald Trump,” Snoop Dogg said.
