Greg Schiller suddenly noticed just how cold it was getting outside. He worried about all the homeless people who lived near him but had nowhere to go.
With temperatures dropping so low, people would die if they didn’t have shelter. Schiller couldn’t live with this on his conscience, especially when he knew he had the power to do something about it.
So one thing led to another and he ended up allowing people to come in and sleep in his basement. But, then he took things a step further.
He decided to provided sleeping bags, cots, and food. He stayed up all night to make sure they were safe and even put on movies for them to watch before they went to bed.
He felt like he was doing the right thing, and all the people he helped were extremely appreciative.
But then something happened. The city stepped in and told him he had to stop or they would condemn his house.
A suburban Chicago resident who was offering up “slumber parties” in his basement for homeless people in his neighborhood during dangerously cold weather says city officials have given him an ultimatum.
Stop the “slumber parties” or the house will be condemned.
Greg Schiller, of Elgin, said he began letting a group of homeless people sleep in his unfinished basement last month during brutally cold nights, offering them food, warm beverages and a cot to sleep on while watching movies.
“I would stay up all night with them and give them coffee and stuff and feed them,” he said, adding that no drugs or alcohol were allowed inside his residence during the evening events.
Needless to say, Schiller is extremely upset about having to stop taking in the homeless. He says the next time the temperatures drop too low, he won’t be able to sleep at night because he’ll be up worrying.
And he’s not the only one outraged about the city’s decision. The homeless people he helped are speechless that the city wants to force a kind resident to stop helping them.
How can the same city that welcomes illegal immigrants, offers them sanctuary, and hands out aide and benefits to them like it costs taxpayers nothing, have the audacity to stop private residents from saving the lives of their own homeless Americans?
Once again a liberal-run city shows it’s true colors. In sanctuary cities the average American life doesn’t mean anything to it’s political leaders.
Helping out homeless Americans won’t win democrats any elections, because it’s not progressive enough.
So, let’s just hope that more average American voters like Schiller realize this and start to vote in a way that will allow our own people to be taken care of first.
