Medical company DocGo awarded $432M contract to bus illegals out of the Big Apple

 New York City (NYC) Mayor Eric Adams is reportedly paying a medical company hundreds of millions to bus border crossers and illegal aliens out of the Big Apple – using taxpayer money, of course.

The New York Times (NYT) expounded on this in a report, naming DocGo as the medical company at the center of the scheme. The company was contracted by Adams' office to transport illegals from Texas to other parts of New York state. Prior to this, DocGo had been providing services related to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) such as testing and vaccination to NYC.

"The city awarded DocGo a $432 million contract, which took effect in early May [2023], without subjecting it to competitive bidding," NYT wrote. "[It] pivoted to migrant care as the pandemic waned and a new crisis emerged. The contract called for DocGo to house migrants and provide them with services – including case management, medical care, food, transportation, lodging and round-the-clock security."

Breitbart pointed out in a report that DocGo "is only the latest company to reap the rewards of mass immigration to New York City, paid for by New Yorkers." Previously, the mayor's office reached out to the Big Apple's powerful hotel industry to house tens of thousands of illegals in luxury hotels.

"As a result, the hotel industry is profiting millions – potentially billions – from lucrative migrant hotel contracts. In many cases, records show that New Yorkers are being charged daily hotel rates that are well above their market rate," the outlet wrote.

"On average, New Yorkers pay $256 every day to provide a free hotel room for each migrant family. This is vastly more than what the city pays – $136 to $188 – to provide housing for homeless New Yorkers. To afford the migrant hotels, Adams has suggested cutting back on services for New Yorkers."  

Cities and towns across Empire State not happy with NYC's bussing program

More than 90,000 illegals have arrived in the Big Apple since the spring of last year, mainly due to bussing efforts by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. Adams blasted the chief of the Lone Star State for bringing migrants to the so-called sanctuary city. However, the NYC mayor has begun a similar program – with companies such as DocGo playing a role.

"More than 1,500 migrants have been sent to places as far as Buffalo, with more on the way," according to NYT. "But many of the migrants have been greeted by protests at their new homes, as well as mistreatment and the false hope of jobs."

The Gray Lady continued that border crossers have been subjected to threats of violence, lies and false senses of hope under the bussing program. It recounted one such instance captured on video, in which a security guard can be heard threatening a male migrant for talking to the media.

Cities and towns across the Empire State are angry about the bussing program, as DocGo does not alert local officials whenever it sends busloads of migrants to communities. In addition, the company also does not provide any background information on who the migrants are.

But even the illegals themselves, who are bused from Texas to NYC, avoid the city over rampant crime and filth. Two migrants who spoke to the New York Post shared why they wanted out.

"I wanted to live in [NYC] because I thought it would be a better future for my daughters. But as the days went by – I saw insecurity, many homeless people, many people who shout and are disrespectful and many people on drugs," explained 33-year-old Susy Sanchez Solzarno from Peru.

"I am going to Canada for the safety and future of my girls. I only ask God that everything goes well and that Canada is not like the United States."

Venezuelan Manuel Rodon, 26, was another migrant who decided to head north to Canada. He explained to the Post: "I feel like Canada will be safer. It is a much quieter country than America."
