Chicago Residents Informed The City Plans To Take In 250 Migrants

  • Residents of Chicago’s South Shore community were not thrilled when they learned that the city planned to take in some 250 illegal immigrants – a number that they said was “fluid” and could increase over time.
  • During a public meeting addressing the situation, residents raised questions regarding crime and safety and asked why the city had not bothered to consult the people who lived in the community before making plans to bring more people in.
  • The meeting began with Chicago’s Chief Engagement Officer Nubia William, who tried to impress upon the residents that they were trying to help mitigate a humanitarian crisis — but the crowd began to shout her down before she could even finish her first sentence.
