Denver CO City Official Asks Migrants to Find Other Cities Amid Resource Shortage

According to the Daily Mail, a city official in Denver is encouraging migrant families arriving in Colorado to consider relocating to cities like Chicago and New York due to limited resources in the state.

Communications liaison Andres Carrera advised migrant arrivals to seek support in other parts of the country, emphasizing that cities like New York and Chicago offer more job opportunities.

Mayor Mike Johnston mentioned that Denver has allocated over $100 million for asylum seekers’ housing, education, and medical care, but this amount could increase to $180 million, representing 15% of the city’s annual budget.

USA Today recently reported that over 40,000 migrants have arrived in Denver in less than a year, posing challenges for city officials in providing for them while also meeting the needs of taxpayers amidst escalating rent prices and a housing shortage.

Despite Denver being a sanctuary city, the surge of migrants has strained the city’s resources. City officials are contemplating budget reductions to sustain support for migrants, but neighboring cities have declined to offer assistance.

These newcomers were allegedly relocated to Denver as part of an initiative led by Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R), who aims to send migrants to Democratic-run cities to highlight perceived shortcomings in President Joe Biden’s immigration policy.

“The lead importer of migrants to New York is not Texas, it’s Joe Biden,” Abbott said at an event held by the Manhattan Institute. “It’s a crisis. It’s chaotic and it must stop.”

Carrera went on to tell the crowd that Denver has “received too many migrants” and that the city has run out of resources. “If you stay here, you are going to suffer even more and I don’t want to see this.”

Carrera added that officials would be willing to buy migrants tickets to “any city” they wished to go, adding that they could even go “up to the Canadian border.”

According to reports, Denver has imposed restrictions on the duration of stay for new arrivals in city shelters, allowing individuals to stay for a maximum of two weeks and families with children for up to six weeks.
Many of these cities have long prided themselves on providing a safe haven for undocumented immigrants, offering protection from deportation and often refusing to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. However, this stance has created a host of challenges and complexities that are now coming back to haunt them.

The policies of sanctuary cities have created a tense relationship with the federal government, particularly under the current administration’s hardline stance on immigration.

As a result, these cities are now facing increased pressure and scrutiny from federal authorities, leading to a crackdown on funding and resources. This has left many sanctuary cities struggling to maintain essential services and support their vulnerable populations.

In the case of New York City, Mayor de Blasio is finding himself in a difficult position as he grapples with the fallout from his city’s sanctuary policies. The strain on resources and infrastructure has reached a breaking point, forcing him to turn to the federal government for assistance. This move is seen as a desperate plea for help in dealing with the mess that has been created by years of contentious immigration policies.

Overall, sanctuary cities are facing an uphill battle as they navigate the complex intersection of local and federal immigration laws.

The need for assistance from the federal government highlights the challenges and consequences of their problematic approach to immigration enforcement.
