CLAIM: New York City is giving credit cards to migrants living in the U.S. illegally.
AP’S ASSESSMENT: Missing context. The city is launching a pilot program that will provide migrants with prepaid debit cards to buy only food and baby supplies, according to a spokesperson for the mayor. Participants will be allowed to shop with the cards at bodegas, grocery stores, supermarkets and convenience stores. The goal is to cut costs, officials said.
THE FACTS: Amid a massive influx of migrants to New York City, social media users are misrepresenting the new program with false claims about the type of aid participants will receive.

"The migrants are receiving millions of dollars worth of DEBIT cards, not CREDIT cards, you xenophobic right wing, fake-news spreading bigots!!"
They’ll buy the stuff and sell it for cash ,LOL
Still a bad idea
Or just sell the cards for ten cents on the dollar.
Oh, that clears it all, right up.
Lying, *fact* check AssPress.
As if there is any difference.
Reparations for illegals but none for the homies?
This is beyond infuriating.
Free money. This just encourages more to come to NYC.
Oh in that case....... I suppose they can continue to use the CC they got when processed? And cell phones.......
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith rails against ‘$53 million pilot program for illegals,’ predicts Trump victory
What the xxxx difference does it make? They get to spend OUR money.
“They can spend it only on food and baby items.” So what. Money is fungible.
We’ve been forced to pay the way for our replacements. And they show their hatred for us by stealing, assaulting, and finger signs.
Debit cards vs. credit cards
Oh, well! That makes all the difference in the world. Tomato, tomato.
It’s still tax payers hard earned dollars being gifted to our enemies to be used against us.
I want two questions answered (in my dreams, I know..) 1) What legislation authorized this expenditure and what were the roll call votes? and B) With this “Free Money” what is the NYS Department of Labor going to do with their initiative to get “Work Permits” for these ILLEGAL ALIENS? Oh, and when did Princess Kathy sign this edict into “law?” That’s three, so sue me.
She’s so ugly, they won’t even want to rape her.
Best part: Per her LinkedIn page, the enemediot is a “news verification reporter”...
