“In a month or two, we’re about to open up for [the city Department of Homeless Services], for homeless,” a hotel worker told the New York Post, adding that the plan would be designed to house migrants.

According to Adams’ office, more than 17,000 asylum-seekers have been bussed to the city since spring. It’s projected by his office that costs related to migrant aid will reach “more than $1 billion.”

“We expect to spend at least $1 billion by the end of the fiscal year on this crisis. All because we have a functional and compassionate system,” Adams said on Friday. “Our right-to-shelter laws, our social services, and our values are being exploited by others for political gain.”
