Large Number of Mostly Hispanic and Asian Chicago Residents Reportedly Denied Access to Meeting About Illegal Immigrant 'Base Camp'
The city is forging ahead with plans to create a “migrant base camp” for about 2,000 illegals at the corner of 38th and California. Although the term “base camp” has some ominous overtones, the fact that it will be located adjacent to a street named California is appropriate. And yes, the idea is the brainchild of Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson’s administration.
The neighbors are having none of it and turned out to make sure that Alderman Julia Ramirez knew it. The Daily Caller points out that at the event, Ramirez was accused by residents of moving the project ahead without any community input. One person commented, “Nobody asked us, nobody told us. We have a few thousand people here who signed their signature and said ‘no! We said no!”
A few thousand signatures would be pretty difficult to miss, one would think. Ramirez claimed that Johnson had not informed her of his plans. Things got a little heated, which led to Ramirez and her aides hastily decamping from the event.
