Eric Adams Suggests Housing Illegals in Private Citizens’ Spare Rooms

'Dust off the 3rd Amendment...'

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) Eric Adams, New York City’s radical leftist mayor, suggested housing illegals in citizens’ homes on Monday, and was broadly mocked for the idea on Twitter.

Greg Price tweeted out a video that showed Adams calling for the private housing of illegals.

“It is my vision to take the next step to this faith-based locales and then move to a private residence,” Adams said, explaining that the safety and privacy of the citizens of New York City must be sacrificed to the cities sanctuary city policy.

“They have spare rooms, they have locales,” he said, explaining that New York had to find a way to keep illegals for 30 days to qualify to receive funding for illegals.

Rebecca Velo, a writer affiliated with Wrong Speak Publishing, wrote that this policy was similar to the communist policies her family dealt with in Cuba.

James Bradley, a former US Senate Candidate in California, also highlighted the policy’s relation to communism.

This is what socialism looks like,” he tweeted, including an angry emoji.

An anonymous Twitter user, Lane Violator Deetz, wrote that Adam’s proposal is anti-American, instructing to Dust off the 3rd Amendment.”

The Third Amendment to the United States Constitution protects citizens from being forced to open their homes to troops. The argument could assert that the flood of illegals are an invading army, or one could simply apply the constitutional principle of controlling one’s own castle from forced boarders to Adam’s proposal.

Michael Dorstewitz, an attorney and writer at Newsmax, added to the constitutional criticism.

Not to mention the Takings Clause of the 5th Amendment,” he tweeted, referring to the part of the US Constitution that reads “No person shall be … deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

Another anonymous Twitter user, Sunshine State of Mind, wrote about the impracticality of the program.

“It would be so much easier to not let them all in and have an orderly legal process with annual limits,” she tweeted.

Twitchy agreed with Sunshine State of Mind, arguing that Adams is desperate and will do anything to avoid closing the border.
