Chicago Democrats Divided Over Spending $50 Million On Illegals

I’m very surprised that all the Democrats in Chicago, a self described sanctuary city which voted over 75% for Biden and Hillary, aren’t super supportive of spending tons of their tax dollars on all the illegals

Chicago Spending Over $50 Million on Migrants Divides Democrats

Chicago’s City Council has approved $51 million in 2021 budget surplus funds to be used in caring for the hundreds of Latino immigrants that are flooding the city, a vote that divided the council’s Democrat aldermen.

The plan has created a rift between the Black and Latino communities in the city, with some residents requesting that the additional funds be used to address Chicago’s homeless population or to invest more in Chicago’s Black population, which they say has been neglected for decades. However, since Texas Governor Greg Abbott began busing immigrants to Chicago and other cities last year, the city has seen a growing crisis over its immigrant population, with hundreds of migrants sleeping on the floor of police stations in the city.

A report from PBS TV station WTTW said that care for the migrants could exceed $112 million through June. City leaders have been scrambling to find space to house the flood of people, which has picked up in intensity as issues concerning the U.S.-Mexico border and the expiration of the Title 42 policy have divided national Republican and Democratic leaders.

Tense and aggressive discussions led up to the vote, according to tweets from WTTW politics reporter Heather Cherone. Aldermen reportedly yelled over each other numerous times, and members of the crowd were removed by security. Cherone said that the meeting was out of control and that the “intense debate,” which lasted for 90 minutes, “featured racist abuse.”

See, Democrats are super supportive of illegals in theory, but, not so much when they’re having to pay for it, deal with it, and put up with it.

Democratic Alderman David Moore, who spoke against the proposal, said that Chicago must take care of its own residents before aiding immigrants.

“Make sure you put your mask on first before you help someone else. And so we have to put our mask on first, and we have to help the residents of this city,” Moore said, according to a tweet by Cherone.

Funny how that works, eh? This is what opponents of unfettered illegal immigration have been saying. Now those chickens have come home to roost. And up in New York, the mayor of NYC is shipping “asylum seekers” up to Albany County, and Albany itself, which is the capital. Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis should drop some off at the NY state house and governor’s mansion.

Pro-sanctuary politicians learn consequence of their policy | DUFFY

It’s easy to take strong stands on controversial issues, pleasing to the political base, when consequences seem distant. Things change when the consequences arrive by the busload.

Denver recently joined the list of cities where Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, frustrated by the negative impacts of virtually unrestricted access to his state’s southern border, is sending busloads of migrants. (snip)

The point, of course, is the liberal leaders were proud to earn the badge of “sanctuary cities,” and “sanctuary states” when the stakes were pretty low. They enacted local ordinances and state laws that, in varying ways, stiff-armed cooperation with federal immigration authorities. Colorado’s left-leaning legislature passed a law in 2019 that prohibited law enforcement from cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on so-called “detainers” where a suspect would be held temporarily so ICE could take custody.

And then they had to deal with it in practice, not just theory. Read the rest.

    Silly Negroes….Democrats only want your votes. The day after the election; you are once again abandoned by them to wallow in your own feces; until the next election day. Stupid is, as stupid does.

      Are you aware of what the voter restrictions were in the 50s? In order to register, you were required to read the Preamble to the Constitution. In other words, you had to be informed. Now they are given a sample ballot with the choices marked.
