Biden isn’t going to be happy about this.
Former President Bill Clinton threw President Biden under the bus and expressed his agreement with New York Governor Kathy Hochul on Saturday, emphasizing the need for reforms to New York City’s “Right to Shelter Law.”
According to Fox, during an interview on 77 WABC radio’s “The Cats Roundtable” show with host John Catsimatidis, Clinton shared his views on the law, which he believes should be modified due to its current shortcomings. He explained that the law is broken and doesn’t seem to align with sensible policies.
The “Right to Shelter” law, in place for over four decades in New York City, mandates providing shelter for the homeless population. Clinton acknowledged New York as a sanctuary city but pointed out the challenges it faces when it comes to sheltering individuals who cannot obtain work permits for extended periods.
He argued that changes are necessary to address this issue, stating that migrants should have the opportunity to start contributing to American society by working, paying taxes, and supporting themselves. Clinton asserted that most migrants do not aspire to rely on welfare programs.
The former president also highlighted the importance of addressing America’s low birth rate by either welcoming immigrants or implementing advanced technologies and automation to strengthen the economy. Additionally, he called for the construction of more housing to accommodate migrants.
Clinton suggested building housing near the Rio Grande and expressed optimism that Mexico would be supportive of such efforts. This approach would allow individuals to stay in Mexico until they secure employment opportunities in the United States, ensuring a smoother transition.
Regarding the ongoing migrant crisis, Clinton noted that the chaotic situation has benefited the Republican Party, attributing this to an inadequately staffed immigration system and insufficient facilities along the border.
Finally, Clinton weighed in on the Democratic Party’s losses in New York, linking them to concerns over rising crime rates and the perception that the party lacked a sensible approach to addressing the migrant issue.
