Chicago’s Tent Housing Proposal for Migrants Sparks Citywide Debate

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson's proposal to house migrants in tents across city wards faces both support and opposition from local leaders.

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson faces resistance from local leaders regarding his proposal to house over 200 migrants in tents across the city’s wards.

While some aldermen, like Brian Hopkins and David Moore, express concerns about space and prioritizing local communities, others, like Alderman Andre Vasquez, support the initiative, emphasizing shared responsibility.

Johnson aims to move nearly 1,600 asylum-seeking migrants from police stations to winterized camps before the cold season.

The city currently spends approximately $30 million monthly to shelter 13,500 migrants.
