Chicago residents are begging Mayor Brandon Johnson to stop accepting more illegal immigrants, but he’s clearly not listening.
Instead, the mayor just signed a $29 million contract to build camps for illegal immigrants in the city.
This is like a disaster in slow motion. Everyone can see the crash coming, but no one seems able to convince the leaders to stop it.
The Daily Mail reported:
Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson quietly signs $29 million contract with security company to build migrant camps
Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson has quietly signed a $29 million contract with a security firm to build base camps for migrants, as residents beg the city’s Democratic leaders to stop allowing asylum seekers into the state.
The city’s deal with controversial firm Garda World, signed last week, includes at least six sites across the city, with zones for between 200 and 1,400 asylum seekers. It also includes bedding, laundry, showers, three meals a day and security.
It comes as Chicagoans are increasingly concerned about a wave of asylum seekers arriving on buses from southern states. Many of the migrants were transported north from Republican border states in an effort to prove that Democrats’ open arms policy is a disaster.
“I want to know if there is a capacity limit and what is that limit if there is one?” one city resident asked at a community event this week. “And why can’t we close the borders of Chicago or the state of Illinois in the first place? Why can’t we close the border?’
Chicago has seen 13,000 migrants arrive in the city since August 2022, and the increase is expected to cost taxpayers $302 million by the end of the year.
This is going to end badly. Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows it.
Let’s go to all the houses that have ‘hate has no home here’, or democracy signs in the window or in the garden, and ask how many migrants they are willing to take in. https://t.co/ tEJGzvLjUN

This has already sparked anger among citizens, especially blacks, who rightly feel that the sanctuary city is taking resources away from residents to help illegal immigrants. Did you vote for this?!
