In a press conference on Monday, Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-NY) is looking to fill more than 18,000 jobs across New York with newly arrived border crossers and illegal aliens, as about 385,000 New Yorkers remain unemployed.
“We have a two-for-one solution here. Now we have all these people here and all these jobs that are open, marry these two together, and we can solve these problems,” Hochul said, celebrating illegal immigration as a victory for business.
The announcement comes more than a month after Hochul said she was creating the jobs program for border crossers and illegal aliens, even as hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers remain on the labor market sidelines.
More than 125,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have arrived in the sanctuary state since the spring of last year. Monthly, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) releases more than 60,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities.
