New York Governor Kathy Hochul is advocating for increased accessibility to employment for individuals who have crossed the border illegally. This isn’t the first instance of her pursuing such policies, but her latest efforts are much more expansive.
Illegal immigrants in New York are already provided with free housing, meals, and even debit cards. Now, they will be joining American citizens in the job market, potentially creating competition for employment opportunities.
What comes next? What additional benefits are they going to receive?

First Illegal Migrants In NY Get Prepaid Credit Cards, Now They Get American Jobs
Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-NY) is easing up requirements in her state so that illegal immigrants can quickly get a job in the U.S., taking away benefits from hard-working American citizens.
This week, Hochul approved a controversial proposal that would make it easier for illegal migrants to secure U.S. government jobs in New York.
“Governor Hochul has prioritized modernizing our State workforce and eliminating red tape, and she has instituted a series of reforms to achieve that goal,” a spokesperson for Hochul said in a statement.
“This initiative, which has not yet been implemented, would offer temporary employment opportunities available for anyone who can legally work in the United States.”
The proposal will require illegal aliens to obtain legal work authorization from the federal government. However, other requirements– such as the New York Department of Civil Service relaxing English language proficiency requirements– would be eased for thousands of government jobs. An education verification and certification would also be omitted from the job qualification.
The goal is for the “hard-to-recruit, entry-level titles” jobs to become permanent for the illegal migrants, which will start as temporary roles. Still, agencies will have the option to make them indefinite if their work is satisfactory.
Donald Trump recently discussed with Dan Bongino the negative impact that the surge in illegal immigration will have on American jobs. The outlook isn’t promising.
Trump is correct. This problem is moving precisely in the wrong direction.
