Multiple anti-migrant protesters physically attacked a Chicago alderwoman and her aide in Brighton Park Thursday morning, briefly sending the latter to the hospital.

Ald. Julia Ramirez, a freshman alderwoman of the southwest 12th ward who assumed office in May, said in a statement that she attended a protest at the site of a proposed migrant tent camp to garner community feedback. Video taken by several local news reporters and outlets show most protesters swarming Ramirez and an unnamed aide, with many grabbing, pushing and shoving themselves into them.


The two were escorted by multiple Chicago Police officers into an SUV, which quickly drove away. Ramirez said that the aide was then admitted to the hospital and found to be in “good condition.” A Chicago Police Department spokesperson told WTTW News that Ramirez declined medical attention.

The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.

Chicago meeting turns ugly as residents protest planned migrant camp in local neighborhood: 'Nobody asked us'

A meeting over Chicago's brewing migrant crisis in the Brighton Park neighborhood became heated as residents protested a planned camp that can house over 2,000 migrants, according to Fox 32 Chicago.

Residents of the southwest side of Chicago neighborhood were fiercely divided over the plan, with city officials confirming their plans to build a camp for migrants on a "10-acre vacant lot, located at 38th and California," per the outlet.

"The City of Chicago has been identifying viable sites across the city to construct base camps as an alternative to new arrivals sleeping outdoors, at O’Hare and on the floors of police district stations as winter fast approaches," a statement from the mayor’s office reads. "The site at 38th and California appears viable, and the intention is to construct temporary shelter at this site.".............

Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.
Right. Like, who would object to a shanty town of illegals stuck in the middle of their hood?

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

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.
