Libby Schaaf, Mayor of Oakland California, says all are welcome. While Bill Di Blasio, Mayor of New York City, says illegal aliens should have drivers licenses in New York.
According to Breitbart, “Sanctuary city New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio originally blasted Trump for the plan, claiming the president was using illegal aliens as “chess pieces,” but he then advocated for giving illegal aliens driver’s licenses in order to attract more illegal aliens to the state.
“Undocumented immigrants are our neighbors and part of the backbone of our economy,” de Blasio wrote online. “It’s mind-boggling that they aren’t allowed to have driver’s licenses in New York State.”
"New York City homelessness has reached the highest levels since the 1930s when the country struggled through the Great Depression. Today, there are nearly 64,000
Homeless residents in New York City, including more than 15,000 homeless families with almost 23,000 homeless children. This is the largest metro area homeless population in the country. There are more than 1,200 homeless American veterans living in New York state.”
It’s clear that Sanctuary City Mayors embrace the mass influx of illegal aliens into their cities despite their unwillingness to tackle homelessness. The question that remains unclear is whether their constituents will embrace the change. A change that will inevitably cost them in their pocketbooks as taxes go up to pay for increased services from the increased population.
