'Enough Room' in Chicago for Migrants Says New Mayor Brandon Johnson
Brandon Rubalcaba / May 24 2023, 16:28 PM EST
 
After being sworn in, new Mayor Brandon Johnson hit the ground running by signing executive orders, one pertaining to adding a deputy mayor for immigrant, migrant, and refugee rights.

"We don't want our story to be told that we were unable to house the unhoused or provide safe harbor for those who are seeking refuge here. Because there's enough room for everyone in the city of Chicago whether you are seeking asylum or you are looking for a fully funded neighborhood," Johnson said during his inauguration speech on Monday.


After the lift of pandemic-era Title 42 restrictions, more migrants are expected to come in to the area. "Speaking of the right thing to do, the soul of Chicago tells us that we will never close our doors to those who come here in search of a better life," the mayor said later on.

Since last august more than 8,000 migrants have arrived in Chicago.

The city of Chicago recently received 5.5 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to care for immigrants. As Chicago continues to face "a humanitarian crisis" amid a wave of migrants, the Chicago City Council will be asked to spend $53 million from the city's budget surplus to address the crisis.

The way people have been moving out of Chicago, except for thugs, thieves, gangs, and crooks, I imagine there is plenty of room.  However, the real issue is do they have enough money.  Methinks not.

Great!  Every other governor should take that as an open invitation to ship all of their illegal aliens to Chicago.

But, what about money, shelter, food, education, and healthcare?

... without those things, they will just be vagrant loiterers.

The woke black community is not going to like this one darn bit.
For those who can, get back to the land. Homesteading is a revolutionary act of resistance.

Good.  Drive a wedge between two factions of the left.

Johnson:
