Denver immigrants have cost city up to $340 million, according to estimates

Denver has spent up to $340 million to clothe, educate, feed, and provide healthcare for thousands of illegal immigrants who have made their way to Colorado’s capital city in the past two years, according to new estimates from the Common Sense Institute.

The “sanctuary city” has cared for more than 42,195 migrants, according to the city’s dashboard, which updates its totals daily.

There are presently 446 newcomers seeking shelter in hotels. While the number of illegal immigrants crossing into the state has significantly dropped off since its January highs, the city, which boasts a population of 710,000, is struggling to accommodate the new arrivals.
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.
