Disturbing video from Chicago shows the deterioration of the migrant situation as thousands of illegal immigrants now live in tents on the streets or have taken over building lobbies.
Mayor Brandon Johnson's office on Sunday announced the deployment of "warming buses" provided by the Chicago Transit Authority to designated locations. The city is also collaborating with "external partners to provide blankets, coats and other items," according to a press release.
City officials say the Windy City has accepted more than 19,000 migrants since August 2022, but they are not the only ones who will need assistance during the winter. There are over 68,000 Chicagoans experiencing homelessness, according to a recent study, the city says.
Many migrants are currently living in tents that will likely not offer them adequate protection against the cold weather, according to FOX 32. Reports say shelters in the city are at capacity.
