The city of Denver, Colorado, has begun removing illegal aliens from its shelters as it continues to be overwhelmed with new migrant arrivals. As of last Friday, 3,895 illegal aliens were occupying city shelters.
“Starting on Monday, 150 migrants in city shelters will be discharged. Then that number will fluctuate between 50-100 every day until all 3,800 are out of the ten shelters currently run by the city,” said Jon Ewing of Denver Human Services.
A self-designated sanctuary city, Denver has welcomed nearly 40,000 migrants in the past year, according to Mayor Mike Johnston (D). However, with city shelters bursting at the seams and resources dwindling, Johnston has indicated that the city’s ability to accept more migrants could be over.
“I think our city is very close to its breaking point now. And the things we need are — yes, we need federal dollars, but the most important thing is we need, you know, work authorization for folks when they arrive, and we need those resources at the border,” said Johnston during an interview with Fox & Friends.
The removals come as states across the country continue to grapple with the ongoing crisis at the southern border. A recently introduced bill in the Senate attempts to address the crisis, tying border measures with foreign aid to Ukraine and Israel. The bill has been heavily criticized by leading Republicans, including former President Trump, and is unlikely to pass.
