Former Governor Warns of Possible Uprising in American Cities Due to Migrant Crisis

Former New York Governor David Paterson issued a stern warning about the potential for a city-wide revolt against the federal government, due to the escalating migrant crisis.

Paterson, a Democrat like Biden, expressed his concerns on WABC 770AM radio’s “Cats Roundtable,” hosted by John Catsimatidis.

Paterson criticized the federal government’s handling of the situation, stating there seems to be neither the will nor the capability to address what’s become an increasingly dire issue.

He lamented the government’s decision to send migrants into cities without providing adequate financial support, a move he believes could backfire as other cities grapple with similar challenges.

The former governor’s comments come amid a surge in migrant arrivals in New York City, exacerbating an already severe local housing crisis.

The city’s shelters are expected to house around 100,000 migrants by June 2024, a figure that doubles the current number. This influx is projected to cost the Big Apple an estimated $12 billion over the next three years.

Echoing the urgency expressed by New York City Mayor Eric Adams, Paterson warned that the situation would only intensify in the coming months.

He squarely blamed the Biden administration for the crisis, accusing it of hastily sending migrants to cities across the country without a well-thought-out plan.

Paterson argued the administration should have taken at least a year to adjust the facilities and capacity of the cities or towns designated to receive migrants. He cautioned this hasty approach could lead to an uprising from cities against the federal government.

Despite the grim outlook, Paterson commended Governor Kathy Hochul’s efforts to secure funds from the state legislature to assist the city next year. He praised Hochul for successfully securing $1 billion without lengthy debates or discussions.

However, the city’s financial burden remains heavy. Currently, New York City spends approximately $383 per night to shelter each of the 25,600 asylum-seeker households.

These migrants are accommodated in 198 facilities across the city, but the capacity is so strained that people have sometimes been forced to camp out on sidewalks in Manhattan.

With more than 57,300 individuals currently under the city’s care on an average night, the cost amounts to nearly $3.6 billion a year.
