The border crisis is one of the Democratic Party’s own making, and it is now making homelessness worse in Democrat-run areas. New York City is booting illegal immigrants from homeless shelters as the city prepares to see more tent cities. “People are going to be sleeping on our streets,” Mayor Eric Adams said. The city has issued 21,000 notices to vacate to both individual illegal immigrants and families since July.
Massachusetts, meanwhile, is rapidly approaching maximum occupancy in its shelters, meaning that the state plans to begin putting families on wait lists. Those families will be left out in the cold in Massachusetts in November and beyond.
The reality is that the Democratic Party’s view that all illegal immigrants should be welcomed and provided with “sanctuary” was never empathetic. Democrats embraced it because they thought those gross Republicans would be the only ones to deal with the issue in Texas or Arizona. They were just fine with forcing Republicans to shoulder the burden and for those illegal immigrants to live homeless in Texas instead, as Democrats virtue-signaled about how welcoming they were to a handful of illegal immigrants in their own communities.

New York dealing with deluge of migrants, media admits it is crisis
Border patrol overwhelmed, migrants are being admitted into the U.S. (
I would point out that all this immigration is contributing to the shortage of affordable homes, except that the white working class has already been priced out of NYC 20 years ago.
I do think this will make it harder for young people to live in NYC though. There are many young people from all over the country who dream about living in NYC. There are plenty of stories about how even nurses earning $70,000 a year struggle to afford the cost of rent in NYC. These migrants, even if they became legalized, would probably end up in some trashy apartment with three adult men sleeping in each bedroom even if they were to get a roof over their heads in the city with full-time employment.
