Blue state residents are getting loud about the border crisis as cities crumble under the pressure

Democrat Governors and Mayors once gleefully declared their states and cities to be “sanctuary citizens” for illegal immigrants.

But it was only a matter of time before the border crisis blew up on open-border Democrats.Now blue state residents are getting loud about the border crisis as cities crumble under the pressure.

The blue state of Illinois is in turmoil due to Biden administration policies, and residents are speaking out. 

The city of Chicago is grappling with an overwhelming influx of migrants while its own homeless and impoverished citizens are left to fend for themselves. 

The situation has ignited fury among residents, accusing local leaders of neglecting the needs of their own people.

With over 300 migrants boarded onto warming buses and nearly 15,000 migrants in city shelters, Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications is struggling to address the impending dangerous drop in temperatures. 

The frustration is palpable, with hundreds more migrants awaiting placement in various locations, including Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

Cata Truss, a concerned resident, voiced the sentiments of many on “Fox & Friends,” demanding accountability from city officials. 

“I do have to wonder, are they going to provide those warming buses down on Canal Street, where the tents are located for the homeless, or down on Roosevelt, where tents are located for the homeless, or over on Division Street where tents are located for the homeless?”

The numbers tell a stark tale: since the initiation of data collection, almost 34,000 migrants have arrived in the city, with an expenditure exceeding $156 million on housing and care since October 2022. 

This financial strain in addition to the 6,139 recorded homeless residents in 2023.

Residents are criticizing Chicago’s resources allocation, highlighting a staggering projected deficit of $391 billion for Chicago Public Schools. 

Truss said to Fox, “What is needed is for us to stop the bleeding… at what point do we close the borders and help to fix whatever’s going wrong in these countries that have those people fleeing here in the first place?”

Fellow resident Sam Sanchez echoed Truss’s concerns in his Fox interview, emphasizing the neglect of American citizens who have long awaited work visas. 

“Resources that have been denied to communities that have been long forgotten for over 50 years. Now, the funds appear out of nowhere for newcomers and migrants.”

Sanchez predicted electoral repercussions, saying to Fox & Friends, “What the elected officials should realize [is] that some of these old migrants have been here for a long time, have children and grandchildren that are voting age. This is going to reflect on the next election, and I hope it does.”

The blame falls squarely on President Biden and the Democrat Party’s border policies. 

When Fox asked if Biden has failed the people of Chicago, Truss responded with a resounding “absolutely.” 

She also held Democratic Governor JB Pritzker and Mayor Brandon Johnson accountable, asserting, “The people are crying out and no one is listening, they are just not listening… we’re supporting these people and voting [for] these people and they don’t give a damn about us.”

Despite Mayor Johnson acknowledging the situation as “not sustainable” and pleading for significant federal assistance, Chicago residents remain unconvinced. 

The frustration is building, and as Sanchez aptly puts it, “This is going to reflect on the next election.” 

The battle for Chicago’s soul intensifies, and the forgotten Americans are demanding to be heard.
