Denver Mayor Allocates $90M For Illegal Immigrants

Denver Mayor Mike Johnston’s administration is saddling Denver taxpayers with a whopping $90 million bill to address the ongoing illegal immigration crisis.

The city implemented several measures to meet this substantial financial obligation, including freezing the hiring of approximately 160 vacant positions and reallocating funds from various sources.

In his announcement, he signalled a major shift in Denver’s response to the migrant crisis.

“We spent a lot of time advocating at the Federal level for support here,” Johnson said.

“There was a Bipartisan bill to do that failed in the House, you know that story.”

“It was clear that was not going to happen in Congress in the next seven months, so we felt we had to take things into our own hands.”
