In recent months, we’ve seen residents of large liberal cities turn on their mayors. Democrat leaders are welcoming in more and more illegal border crossers.
But their cities are out of room. Many locals are demanding these migrants be deported.
In Chicago, black residents have confronted their mayor, Brandon Johnson, over his plans to build a massive tent city for migrants. But just as tensions began to heat up, the project was shut down–over this unexpected twist.
Black residents of Chicago’s Brighton Park are suing Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson over the construction of his massive tent city for illegal border crossers — but not before state authorities shut construction down over a report that the site may be a toxic landfill…
But even before the residents of Brighton Park launched their lawsuit, construction on Johnson’s much-derided tent city was put on hold by state officials after a newly released environmental report suggested that the land upon which the tent city is being erected is dripping in hazardous chemicals.
The situation went from bad to worse. Black residents protested Mayor Johnson’s plan to build a migrant tent city in their neighborhood. The project is supposed to house at least 1,400 migrants. The mayor approved the plan without allegedly consulting the community, or speaking with the alderman.
As a result, the community quickly formed a lawsuit against the city and its mayor. But before the lawsuit was launched, the project was put on hold… over reports that the planned location might be a toxic landfill.
As it turns out, high levels of mercury were found in the soil. The mayor knew about this, but claimed removing soil to level the ground for construction was enough. State officials, however, disagreed and forced the project to stop.
A lawyer representing the community sounded enraged over the entire situation. He accused the city of being “dishonest, liars, untruthful.”
This lawsuit is the latest escalation by big city residents in their opposition to migrant resettlement. Democrat mayors have been spending large sums of tax dollars to house illegal border crossers. These migrants are considered a threat to the lives and livelihood of American citizens.
But despite growing protest by residents, Democrat officials continue to prioritize migrants.
- Black Chicago residents plan to sue the city and mayor over a planned migrant tent city.
- The project, however, was shut down by the state after reports of toxic chemicals in the soil.
- Mayor Brandon knew about the mercury levels but continued with the project anyway.
