Chicago’s mayor, Brandon Johnson, and different native officers have come below immense scrutiny over the metropolis’s disastrous “sanctuary city” standing in the wake of Joe Biden’s reversal of profitable Trump insurance policies on the border, akin to “remain in Mexico.”
The Biden regime’s failure has resulted in over 5.8 million unlawful crossings up to now, together with a whole bunch of suspected terrorists. And these are solely the ones we find out about.
The virtue-signaling of those “sanctuary cities” over the years, akin to Chicago and New York, have now begun to attract large blowback from constituents who’re outraged over companies being rolled out for unlawful migrants, the displacement of homeless American residents and veterans to make means for the migrants, and the finances cuts being proposed so as to maintain the cities by way of the disaster. This “sanctuary city” coverage has been heralded by the Mockingbird Media for years now when there was little relevance to the main Democrat strongholds apart from to gaslight the public in an election yr.
That sentiment has begun to alter drastically.
Even rapper Cardi B has expressed her disgust:

New York City has stated the migrant disaster will value the metropolis $12 billion over the subsequent two years, and Chicago expects to spend $302 million earlier than the year-end. It is so unhealthy in the Windy City that some migrants are literally fleeing again to Communist Venezuela!
Now, a Chicago firm is providing a “solution”: micro properties. The 80sq ft properties may home as much as six folks with no kitchen home equipment, no operating water, a contemporary air system, and a composting bathroom.
According to Axios Chicago:
Their new MicroHomes are 80 sq. ft and can home as much as six folks, Inherent CEO Tim Swanson tells Axios. They embrace a lofted mattress, over 5 ft in headspace and a composting bathroom.
- The residence additionally has a heating system and a system for contemporary air.
- There’s no operating water or kitchen home equipment.
One unit prices $20,000. For the prototype, they’ve relied on philanthropic funding, however the hope is they may promote them to the metropolis.
Swanson believes the micro properties may finally be utilized in the over 30,000 vacant tons unfold throughout the metropolis.
If the metropolis needed these homes, Swanson stated it will take lower than a month for manufacturing to ramp up and they may produce a number of models per thirty days.
Alderman Walter Burnett (twenty seventh Ward) instructed WGNTV:
“If there’s a will, there’s a way. If we want to make this happen, we can make it happen. We’re making it happen with tents.”
According to the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, cited by the Chicago Tribune, there have been roughly 68,440 homeless in Chicago in 2021 previous to the migrant disaster making its approach to the streets of Chicago. Of these, 7,985 have been staying on the road or in shelters. Those numbers alone would require over $26,000,000 to accommodate the homeless if every unit was stuffed to the 6-person capability. The present variety of homeless folks is probably going a lot larger immediately contemplating the migration to the Windy City.
While the urgent query is “Why now?” Why now’s it being proposed to fund these micro properties for unlawful immigrants whereas US residents, particularly veterans, have suffered immensely from homelessness in Chicago and different main metropolitan areas? And, whether it is thought of and adopted, would the cash be as opaque as the contracts for migrant healthcare that noticed two people make $14,000 and $20,000 in only one week?
