Alderman blasts Chicago’s $9K in monthly freebies for each illegal immigrant in the city
By Ramon Tomey // Feb 05, 2024

A member of the Chicago City Council has denounced the administration of Mayor Brandon Johnson for giving illegals freebies amounting to $9,000 each per month.

Alderman Anthony Beale, who represents the city's Ninth Ward, expressed his indignation to the scheme during an address made on the council floor. According to him, illegals are being paid more than $9,000 each per month in free childcare, housing vouchers, food, clothing, education, legal help and other services.

"Now, I've said this before," Beale remarked. "If you give me three meals, housing, childcare, education [and] a voucher for $9,000 – you know what, I'd come to Chicago too.

"That's what they're doing. They're sending money back to … Venezuela. [They're telling people] to come to Chicago because they're saying 'Hey, the good times are rolling there. They're taking care of everybody.'

"Now … when we have Venezuelans that are driving cars – where did they get a driver's license? Where did they get insurance from? And then you have Venezuelans being caught with drugs and guns; where are they getting them from?"

Despite being a member of the Democratic Party, Beale has become a major opponent of Johnson – who is part of the party's progressive wing. The incumbent mayor who took over his predecessor Lori Lightfoot has continued the sanctuary city's friendly policies for illegals, at the expense of resources originally meant for the Windy City's Black community.

Beale was also one of the aldermen who endorsed a straight question of whether Chicago should retain its sanctuary city status on the 2024 ballot. However, he and his supporters failed after Johnson reframed the question into one that didn't give voters the chance to end the city's migrant-friendly policies.

"Right now, we're dealing with a huge, huge disaster here in the city of Chicago – and we need to get a handle on it. Nobody has ever asked the voters, the people who actually vote and pay taxes here in the city of Chicago, if they want to remain a sanctuary city," the alderman said last September.

NYC Mayor Adams DOUBLES DOWN on support for illegals

Given the Windy City's hefty financial assistance for illegals, it won't be long before the city's finances feel the strain. New York City (NYC), another sanctuary city, has reached that breaking point. Still, NYC Mayor Eric Adams recently doubled down on his support for unlawful border crossers.

During his State of the City speech last Jan. 24, he reiterated that the Big Apple will continue to support the illegal immigrants being brought to the city by Texas through city resources. Adams also urged the federal government to play a role in helping illegals adjust and assimilate.

"The federal government must step up and step in. This is a national crisis that calls for a national solution," said Adams. "It is time for the federal government to deal with this federal crisis and make sure we give them the opportunity; let them work."

He also endorsed the training and hiring of illegal aliens bused to the Big Apple by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. Adams boasted: "We have helped more than 172,000 asylum seekers by providing food, asylum and medical care. We have helped tens of thousands file applications to extend, temporarily, their status and to seek employment."
