Some migrants going home instead of staying in Chicago: ‘The American Dream doesn’t exist anymore. There’s nothing here for us’

Migrants-in-Chicago

Important Takeaways:

  • Chicago is so unpleasant migrants are fleeing BACK to Venezuela after being dumped in shelters and refused jobs, with 20,700 border crossers so-far bussed to Dem-run ‘sanctuary city’
  • Since August last year, 20,700 migrants have arrived in Chicago from Texas. The Lone Star State’s Governor Greg Abbott sent migrants to Chicago and other Democrat-run cities because of their proud status as ‘sanctuary cities.’ They offer enhanced protection against detention or deportation for undocumented migrants.
  • Now, Illinois’ harsh winters, lack of migrant infrastructure, and ambivalent support from locals has made many people, who undertook the harsh US-Mexico border journey, actually turn around and go back home.
  • Michael Castejon, 39, told the Chicago Tribune: ‘The American Dream doesn’t exist anymore. There’s nothing here for us.’
  • ‘We didn’t know things would be this hard. I thought the process was faster,’ he said about the job permit situation in Chicago.
  • The city is also notorious for violent crime, with migrants forced to sleep in public more vulnerable to attack than most.
  • At least 40 people in the last month have left Chicago’s 1st District station to either move back home or elsewhere in the States, with the help of Catholic Charities of Chicago.
  • While most hail from Venezuela, they come from all over the world, including Africa, Europe and the Middle East.
  • The city has allocated $4 million to help migrants find temporary housing, and the state has contributed another $38 million.

Has St. Louis decided it’s now a Sanctuary City? Chicago exports illegal border crossers to Missouri

Chicago-640x480

Important Takeaways:

  • Chicago Looking to Export Illegal Border Crossers to St. Louis, Missouri
  • Chicago has reportedly taken meetings with illegal alien advocates from St. Louis, Missouri, about a deal to ship thousands of border crossers from the Windy City to the Gateway City.
  • Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones (D) recently launched the city’s “Office of New Americans” with an eye toward helping illegals settle in the city on the Mississippi River, and now several advocacy groups in St. Louis are nudging Chicago officials to open up the spigot, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
  • The nonprofit International Institute of St. Louis is one organization asking Chicago’s city hall to consider shipping illegals south to Missouri.
  • “It could be the potential for a great relationship between both cities,” Karlos Ramirez, vice president of Latino outreach for the International Institute, told the Sun-Times. “If the [migrants] are going to be in a better place, St. Louis is going to be in a better place, and Chicago is going to be in a better place. I think everybody wins.”
  • Ramirez added that unions and private funding could foot the bill to house illegals, provide them with cell phones, and help them find work in the St. Louis area.
  • Chicago officials have not commented on the plans, but the Windy City is in a crisis after more than 18,000 illegals have flooded the city.

Terrorists supporting Terrorists: BLM celebrates Hamas violence

BLM-Palestine

Important Takeaways:

  • ‘I Stand With Palestine’: BLM in Chicago, Indianapolis Blasted for Celebrating Hamas’ Violence
  • Black Lives Matter chapters in Indianapolis and Chicago are drawing sharp bipartisan criticism for praising the heinous actions of Hamas in its brutal invasion of Israel.
  • On Tuesday, the Black Lives Matter Indy organization retweeted a post from the U.S. Palestinian Community Network, praising “[t]he heroic Palestinian people” and their “right to resist their racist, white supremacist, land-stealing [Z]ionist occupiers!”
  • On Tuesday, Black Lives Matter’s Chicago organization showcased its support of Hamas by posting a depiction of a paratrooper with a Palestinian flag captioned “I stand with Palestine,” appearing to endorse the attack by Hamas, in which terrorists slaughtered innocent attendees of a music festival near the Israel/Gaza border.
  • According to a tweet by Andy Ngô, a senior editor at the Post Millennial, “A unit of Hamas militants used paragliders and hang gliders to launch their armed massacre of civilians in southern Israel. BLM, like Antifa, has long expressed support for Palestinian terrorism in the name of ‘de-colonialism’ and fighting capitalism.”
  • Brian Krassenstein, a left-wing journalist, lambasted Black Lives Matter Chicago for “[posting] a series of graphical cartoons [on their Facebook page] which try to normalize and rationalize what Hamas Terrorists have done to innocent men, women and children in Israel.”
  • By castigating their political opponents as “white supremacists” and identifying their “challenging oppression” with the unspeakable cruelty Hamas is committing, BLM gives itself and others the green light to violently assault, rape, and kill anyone who stand in its path here in the U.S.
  • As such, it’s fitting perhaps that the logo of the website of Black Lives Matter Indianapolis enshrines the Marxist clenched fist along with the motto “By any means necessary.”
