Hundreds upon hundreds of Nicaraguans are heading for the United Stated border as of this post and may be crossing just in
time for the midterms. The United States is threatening to end financial support to those countries if they cross the border.
Currently, thousands of Nicaraguans immigrants in the United States are given a special status that protects them from
deportation. It is known as the Temporary Protected Status. It is an effort to to tighten restrictions on immigration and is to
end January 2019. Many may end up in New York City. Does New York have the capability as a sanctuary city to support the
down and trodden.How would the city come up with the money?

What are your thoughts?

Again with this? See reply to your previous newly begun thread.


Or are you trying to start a thread that will become "racist" in a matter of a few pages?

No intension. I can not control the thoughts of others. Only mine.
Worried how a sanctuary city like New York is capable of supporting those in need.
The city is spending billions per year to help those in need as we speak. It is common knowledge
that many immigrants have come over many years from many countries and some ( educated guess )
if not many or most will most undoubtedly land in New York.

It’s exciting because it’s going to be one part racist and one part “racist”

NYC should stop being a sanctuary city.

We can keep it civil. It’s all up to us. We are all adults here.
Just because something *might* turn into a heated discussion , doesn’t mean we must avoid the topic - especially if it has impact on nyc

The city of 8mil+ can welcome an extra few hundreds of refugees ( it won’t be all 4000 heading here). But if I were in their shoes I would eye for a warmer and cheaper location ( lower cost of living ).

This is a humanitarian problem, no easy answers here. Canada should share this burden

I was under the impression Nicaragua was stable, at least in comparison to El Salvador and Honduras. Has there been a recent turn of events?
