“I don’t want them there,” one resident began, “take them someplace else or send them back to Venezuela, I don’t care where they go,” she stated, adding that “this is wrong” and that 73 percent of the homeless population in the city consists of black individuals, questioning what city officials were doing for them.
Per Fox32, this community meeting was held in response to city officials announcing that illegal immigrants would be re-housed at the Lake Shore Hotel Hyde Park, where 300 illegals are expected to be housed for up to six months.
Local community members share that they feel they have been left in the dark and are voicing their concerns due to various parts of the city being overrun and destroyed by illegal immigrants.
“Plymouth Court and Van Buren: that site looks like, basically a bomb went off, so I'm concerned about the sites where the migrants are," a Chicago resident shared with Fox32.
Despite community pushback, the illegal immigrants are expected to move into the hotel as soon as Friday.
Since August of 2022, Chicago has seen an influx of over 13,500 illegal immigrants make their way to the city. Similar to New York, the city has struggled to house the illegal immigrants and members of black communities throughout Chicago have been pushing back for months on what they share are the negative impacts illegal immigrants would have on their communities.
“Why would any leader put our black communities already riddled with crime, at further risk by placing unvetted non-taxpayers steps away from our seniors, our children and our homes that we worked so hard on our own to secure,” one community leader stated during a press conference back in May.
“Many of these migrants have been dumped in our neighborhoods without a plan in place to monitor and house them long term,” another community member added.
In May, the city ran out of hotels to shelter illegal immigrants in and resorted to using local police stations in an attempt to house the illegal immigrants who had made their way to Chicago.
Photos and videos that have been shared from both the inside and outside of various local police precincts show illegal immigrants sleeping on the floors and camping outside of precincts as they continue to overrun neighborhoods and hotels.
