Proposed solutions to migrant influx in Chicago cause conflict among Dems

Jan 26

A wealthy Chicago suburb is considering having residents open up their homes to migrants who are on the streets of the Windy City. The idea is being pitched as a possible answer to help with the influx of migrants arriving at Chicago bus stations as lawmakers struggle to find a solution.

Chicago has been a sanctuary city for decades. The designation implies it will protect migrants and assist them with city services. This attracts migrants, knowing resources will be made available to them.

However, some Democrats are saying city resources are becoming depleted because of the influx of migrants arriving. Democrats contend the resources would otherwise be helping other minorities in need.

Now, Chicago is being sued over its handling of the migrant influx.

“We would like to see our status as a sanctuary city removed,” Chicago Democratic government employee Cata Truss said. “We would also like to see a better plan in place. There is no money to take care of the migrants, nor is there money to take care of the people that are there.”

Not only are Democrats coming for the city’s left-leaning policies, but some are also looking to recall their Democratic mayor over the migrant crisis.

According to city data, more than 30,000 migrants have come to Chicago since August 2022.

The crisis has also spread into the suburbs where one Naperville councilman is vowing not to use his city’s taxpayer money to house migrants. Instead, he is asking residents if they would be willing to help and house migrant families.

“We do know there’s increasing pressure for suburbs to, I guess, do our part,” Naperville councilman Josh McBroom said. “You know we do have a very affluent community, a lot of big homes. What I would like to do is direct staff to create a sign up sheet. So for individuals that would be willing to house migrant families. And if there’s people to do that, God bless them.”

Big sanctuary cities like Chicago are struggling to keep up with tens of thousands of migrants who have entered the U.S., and every month at the southern border, hundreds of thousands continue to cross.

A WEALTHY CHICAGO SUBURB IS FLOATING AROUND THE IDEA OF RESIDENTS OPENING UP THEIR HOMES TO MIGRANTS WHO HAVE FOUND THEMSELVES ON THE STREETS OF THE BIG CITY.

IT’S BEING PITCHED AS A POSSIBLE BAND AID TO HELP WITH AN INFLUX OF MIGRANTS ARRIVING AT CHICAGO’S BUS STATIONS.

EVEN CITY DEMOCRATS ARE TURNING AGAINST FELLOW DEMOCRATS AND LEFT-LEANING POLICIES AS THEY GRASP FOR A SOLUTION.

CHICAGO HAS BEEN A SANCTUARY CITY FOR DECADES.

THE STATUS IS MEANT TO PROTECT MIGRANTS AND ASSIST THEM WITH CITY SERVICES.

SANCTUARY CITIES ATTRACT MIGRANTS –

KNOWING RESOURCES WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE TO THEM.

BUT NOW SOME DEMOCRATS ARE SAYING CITY RESOURCES ARE BECOMING DEPLETED BECAUSE OF THIS UNPRECEDENTED INFLUX OF MIGRANTS MOVING TO THEIR CITY.

RESOURCES – THAT WOULD OTHERWISE BE HELPING OTHER MINORITIES IN NEED.

NOW – CHICAGO IS BEING SUED OVER IT.

NOT ONLY ARE DEMOCRATS COMING FOR THE CITY’S DEMOCRATIC POLICIES –

BUT SOME ARE  ALSO LOOKING TO RECALL THEIR DEMOCRATIC MAYOR OVER THE MIGRANT CRISIS.

THERE’S BEEN MORE THAN 30,000 MIGRANTS COME INTO CHICAGO IN THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF.

THE CRISIS – IS OVERFLOWING INTO THE SUBURBS.

WHERE ONE NAPERVILLE COUNCILMAN IS VOWING NOT TO USE THEIR CITY’S TAXPAYER MONEY TO HOUSE MIGRANTS –

BUT IS ASKING RESIDENTS IF THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO HELP AND HOUSE MIGRANT FAMILIES.
