After Dedicating 15% Of Budget To Immigrants, Democrat City Begs Them To Leave

Daily Report April 01,2024

After spending months courting immigrants and spending millions to cater to them, a Democrat-led city is now asking immigrants to move to sanctuary cities across the country.

Denver City Newcomer Communications Liaison Andres Carrera, in a video making rounds on social media, begged migrants to leave the city and move to sanctuary cities such as Chicago and New York City.

“The opportunities are over,” Carrera says in Spanish. “New York gives you more. Chicago gives you more. So I suggest you go there where there is longer-term shelter. There are also more job opportunities there. We have received too many migrants and that is why we ran out of resources. We are not going to block you if you want to stay here. If you stay here you are going to suffer even more and I don’t want to see this.”

Stealing a page from Texas GOP Gov. Gregg Abbott’s playbook, Carrera told the group of migrants that Denver would pay their bus fares to any location of their choosing, including as far as the Canadian border. He also offered them Chicago, New York, and Miami as alternate destinations —locations he maintains have more Spanish speakers.

“You don’t have to walk anywhere, we can buy you a free ticket,” Carrera tells the group. “You can go to any city. We can take you up to the Canadian border, wherever!”

Carrera’s plea, however, fell on deaf ears, with many of them opting to stay after he asked them if they would like to take him up on his effort.

According to local news reports, the group of immigrants landed in Denver on March 26 when Gov. Abbott bussed them to the city. The city has spent over $100 million catering to the immigrants needs, such as housing, healthcare and education. That figure is set to rise as high as $180 million, which is 15% of the city’s annual budget.

Carrera’s statement comes after sanctuary cities such as Chicago began sending immigrants to other parts of the country. According to the Daily Mail, Some 200 asylum seekers were taken elsewhere, including to a shuttered CVS in Little Village. As of March 30, the city has emptied its state-run shelters in two locations.
