Cities Strain Under Influx of Illegal Immigrants: Chicago Mayor Warns of Collapse

As the crisis at the southern border intensifies, cities like Chicago face overwhelming numbers of illegal immigrants, mirroring the strain experienced by border states.

Mayor Brandon Johnson warns of Chicago’s impending collapse due to the influx. He highlights the city’s overstretched public services, already burdened by the surge. With $138 million spent on the crisis and more needed as winter approaches, Chicago struggles with over 15,000 migrants in 27 shelters.

Governor Abbott announces plans to bus migrants to sanctuary cities, exacerbating the situation. New York City Mayor Eric Adams echoes concerns, advocating for a coalition of cities to address federal issues. He emphasizes that cities shouldn’t bear the financial burden of a national problem.
