50 Cent Hints at Supporting Trump Amid NYC’s Prepaid Credit Card Policy for Migrants

Famous rapper 50 Cent has recently voiced his criticism regarding New York City’s plan to allocate millions of dollars for prepaid credit cards to migrant families.

In an Instagram post, he even hinted that this policy might lead him to support former President Donald Trump in the upcoming 2024 elections.

This policy aims to distribute $53 million to asylum-seeking families in the form of prepaid credit cards.

According to the New York Post, these pre-paid credit cards are limited in their use and can only be utilized at bodegas, grocery stores, supermarkets, and convenience stores.

To remain in the program, migrants must sign an affidavit pledging that they will only spend the funds on food and baby supplies.

Variable Funding Based on Family Size

The amount of money loaded onto each card is determined by the size of the migrant family and their income status.

For instance, a family of four may receive $1000 per month, with the cards being refilled every 28 days.
