Celebrity Supports Trump Following Mayor’s Immigrant Credit Card Initiative

(DailyVantage.com) – Former President Donald Trump received support from an unexpected celebrity after New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced a plan to distribute $53 million to migrants through prepaid credit cards. Rapper 50 Cent, also known as Curtis James Jackson III, expressed his doubts about Adams’ plan and said that such an action would make him consider Trump the best possible solution for problems facing the United States. While discussing the plan, 50 Cent invited Adams to call him so that the mayor could explain how the prepaid credit card plan would benefit American voters.

Adams plans on financing the prepaid credit cards through taxpayer funds, meaning New York residents would be responsible for paying off the city’s migrants’ credit cards. Despite criticism, like the comments from 50 Cent, Adams said the proposed plan would reduce city spending by approximately $600,000 monthly, or $7.2 million annually. The plan wouldn’t be utilized city-wide upon its start, as it’ll begin with 500 migrant families residing at various hotels throughout the city. The plan also features strict regulations on where the cards work to prevent frivolous spending.

According to Adams, the prepaid cards will only work at supermarkets, delis, and bodegas. Migrants won’t be able to use the cards to buy things other than food or necessities, which Adams argues reduces the burden on the city. City officials also plan to refill the cards every 28 days, giving families around $250 per person. New York City isn’t the only area considering providing migrants benefits from taxpayer money, as California recently announced its plan to provide health care to migrants through taxes.

California Governor Gavin Newsom recently announced that migrants within the state will receive health insurance benefits, regardless of age or status as undocumented immigrants. California began providing health care to migrants in 2015 but only gave benefits to those under the age of 18. Newsom expanded the program to include those aged 19 to 25 in 2019 before expanding it to cover migrants aged 50 and above. The latest expansion benefits those between the ages of 26 and 49, providing health care benefits to all migrants within California.

According to 50 Cent, policies providing benefits to migrants using taxpayer money will push voters to support former President Donald Trump. Rappers like 50 Cent and Kanye have openly supported Trump in the past, but other celebrities may follow suit without changes in the Democratic Party’s approach to the ongoing migrant crisis.
