Looks like the Mouth of Albany has decided to grow a pair when it comes to the MTA. Despite long claiming he has no direct control over them, this latest move follows a series of interventions proving otherwise.

The cost savings from merging different back office functions alone can help hire more police and social workers to address the problem.

But mentally ill people cannot be dumped and concentrated in ghettoes. They need safe housing throughout the metro area and NYC alone cannot share this burden.

Immigrants (especially illegals) often are source of cheap labor and or other ways of being exploited. Mentally ill persons cannot be used in that way easily if at all. That and they cost money far in excess than they contribute either directly (via paying taxes), and or from the services consumed.

There is a reason every country refuses idiots as immigrants.
