Chicago evicts illegal immigrants as NYC revises ‘right to shelter’ law

by ian

Democratic cities are taking new steps to grapple with the migrant crisis.

The City of Chicago began evicting dozens of illegal immigrants yesterday after exceeding the 60-day shelter limit. Chicago plans to evict over 2,000 illegal immigrants by the end of next month, though the evictees can reapply.

New York City has just revised its “right to shelter” law, limiting migrants to just 30 days, after which reapplications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The new rules do not apply to families with children or homeless New Yorkers.
