Hordes of Homeless Swarming Chicago’s O’Hare Airport
By Eric Lendrum
February 16, 2023

In recent weeks, the O’Hare International Airport in Chicago has transformed into a third-world nightmare that some have outright described as “dystopian” due to the flood of homeless people moving onto the airport grounds.

As reported by Breitbart, homeless encampments have sprung up and have been growing in the airport’s terminal areas from where flights depart and arrive. As a a result, concerns have arisen regarding the safety of travelers who now must navigate the homeless population on their way to and from their flights.

Multiple concerned travelers have shared pictures of the damage online, including hallways lined with trash and other poor conditions as a result of the homeless encroachment. In response, airport authorities tweeted that they “appreciate the feedback” and would continue to prioritize the “safety and security” of travelers.

Employees at the airport have voiced their fears about the homeless possibly being violent due to mental health issues. However, attempts to call the police have yielded no results, as the Chicago Police Department (CPD) has told them that such vagrants can only be removed if they assault someone first. ...

How did they get to O'Hare with all their junk? I'm guessing the city gave them free train tickets from downtown to the airport. Any Chicagoan who votes for Lightfoot's reelection on Feb. 28 should be exiled to San Francisco.

Bingo. O'Hare is out in the burbs, just west of Rosemont. Guarantee you are exactly right.

Yeah, I've flown into ORD a time or two, and always took the train into town (with fear and trepidation). Unless they're giving out cab rides to the bums, I'm guessing they got free transport from CTA.

I was in Chicago once, forty years ago and even then for me there was only one redeeming feature, when we sat outside near the Playboy club and watched all the Bunnies going to and from with the wind blowing their skirts up happy77

Flew out and into  of ORD 3 weeks out of the month for years.  Even back then it was a FUBAR exercise to catch a flight. Between traffic, parking, all the Hare Krishna's and other panhandlers in and outside the port you needed a shower to wash the stink off if you made it to the gate on-time.  I can't imagine having to step over bums and the excrement to catch a flight today.  I believe ORD is property of the City of Chicago so this is all on Mayor Bettleguice.

She'll probably be re-elected easily, by a wide margin.
Maybe a landslide.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

A correction to my previous post about Lightfoot's "majority"...

Seems there are a slew of candidates running for mayor in Chicago. Lightfoot is actually trailing one of them, with about 20% of the voters still undecided.

Also looks like voting in Chicago will be split up along ethnic constituencies...
