Depends what you mean by 'inequality'.

If you are going to hand out money to people who are poor, you should hand it out to anybody who is poor irrespective of race or creed, so the policy that the mayor has introduced has resulted in inequality.

What do you mean by 'inequality'

I don't think money should necessarily be given to people based on them being defined as poor, the circumstances surrounding the financial situation of people can be vastly different.

Yep I agree, but this seemed to be based on demographic not financial poverty and I must admit I didn't read the article thoroughly enough and it seems a bit more nuanced than that. But in principle I don't agree with splitting the line down demographically, if people are in need they are in need.

How do they determine that they are 'people of colour'? Do they have to prove their ancestry like in Nazi Germany when you needed to be classified as Aryan.

Of course. And I'm willing to bet they'll take on a lot of the recommendations of the last administration like having some sort of data base be it an electronic app or similar so that they can tell when someone has left the country before their B1 Visa expires.
As for giving 11M people amnesty? Not a hope in hell.

11m people? Trying to absorb the combined population of New York and Chicago? That does seem unrealistic.
