(FeaturedNews.com) – On Saturday, former President Bill Clinton during an interview on the 77 WABC radio’s “The Cats Roundtable” with radio host John Catsimatidis, stated that he agreed with Kathy Hochul, the Governor of New York, and that the city’s “Right to Shelter Law” needed to be altered.
As he noted, the law was currently “broken” and it needed to be fixed. He further claimed that the law did not “make sense.”
The “Right to Shelter” law has been in place for over 40 years and it requires that New York as an asylum city provide shelter to all the homeless people in the state. As Clinton pointed out, currently there are many asylum-seekers entering the city who are not allowed to get a work permit for six months, and the city is required to provide shelter for them. He added that things needed to change and that migrants had the right to start “paying their way” in the country.
Clinton argued that migrants needed to be allowed to start working and paying taxes and that the majority of migrants were not looking to be on welfare. He added that the low birth rate in the country means that either “immigrants or machines” will need to be welcomed in order for the U.S. economy to be maintained.
Finally, Clinton stated that additional housing needed to be built in order for the migrants to be sheltered. As he stated, more housing in Mexico and over the Rio Grande would be a move that he could support, adding that the people could be kept there until they find somewhere to go where they are able to get a job.
