The corrupt Democrats in Chicago have puffed themselves up as saviors of illegals by throwing $51 million at the issue. Now it has been learned that most of that money is going to pay the administrators and government staffers who are running the fund, instead of going to the actual migrants they are claiming to help.
Democrat liars in Illinois are wasting tens of millions of tax dollars that the state doesn’t have to save illegals and no migrants are being helped.
Sounds about right, doesn’t it?
Per Chicago’s WLS Radio:
Cristina Pacione-Zayas, first deputy chief of staff for Mayor Brandon Johnson, told the City Council’s Committee on Immigration and Refugee Rights during a Wednesday hearing that $47 million must be used to pay personnel, describing it as something they “inherited” that was not the best use of funds. Pacione-Zayas said the administration plans to seek request for proposals in July from Chicago-based organizations that could take over that work.
The city also spent funds on leases for spaces, meals, facility maintenance, rental assistance and transportation, Pacione-Zayas said.
As of Wednesday, 4,988 immigrants were staying at 12 makeshift city-run shelters, and an additional 650 individuals remained at police stations waiting for a shelter bed, Pacione-Zayas said. About 14 buses coming from Texas had arrived within the past 10 days along with other individuals who found their way to Chicago to seek safety, she said.
Democrats are universally liars. This fund was never meant to help anyone but their friends and family members who needed government jobs.
They never had any intentions of helping any illegal aliens.
