Cities Demand that Schools Start Housing Illegal Aliens

Several major cities across the country have begun putting pressure on schools to provide shelter for the flood of illegal aliens that have been coming across the southern border.

According to the Daily Caller, the expiration of the Trump-era immigration policy known as Title 42 has resulted in an especially high influx of illegals into the largest cities, including New York City and Chicago. As regular homeless shelters and other city-funded resources dedicated to illegals have already reached maximum capacity, city officials and the federal government alike have turned to strong-arming schools into taking in some of the overflow illegals.

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson (D-Ill.) announced that a high school under the jurisdiction of Chicago Public Schools (CPS), the fourth-largest school district in the nation, will soon begin serving as a welcome center that will provide care for illegals, including free meals and enrolling the children of illegals in English lessons. The new center, which will also provide illegals with Medicaid-funded medical services such as dental care, will cost CPS at least $750,000.

“We’re going to stand on the shoulders of our ancestors, and we’re going to bring people closer together to make sure that the families who have been here have the full force of government and families who wish to call Chicago their home also have the full force of government,” said Johnson at a press conference announcing the controversial move.

In New York City, Mayor Eric Adams (D-N.Y.) and the NYC Office of Emergency Management have considered using as many as 30 empty public school buildings as additional shelters for illegals for the remainder of the summer vacation. Previous efforts by Adams’ administration to house illegals in public schools drew severe backlash from parents, who voiced concerns about the safety of the students with third-world illegals present in the same school.

Other states that are witnessing the forced accommodation of illegals by school facilities include North Carolina, where a recently-closed boarding school campus will begin housing at least 800 illegal children under the orders of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). In El Paso, Texas, two middle schools were converted into temporary shelters for illegals back in May.
