    I love how migrants get to live in hotels and in other places like this. Not to mention the free food, that they waste. But here in America our homeless people sleep on the streets. What is wrong with this world today. This is disgusting.

      @Lauri Jo Emerick I know I really have a girl name and my name is Sherry. My son's girlfriend set this up for me. I said some things that Clip-Share did not like. So now I guess I'm a dude on here anyway but I'm a real live woman. 🤣🤣 But thank you for agreeing with me. I'm just afraid America's not going to be America.. but I feel like we're not saying like they should get whatever. I'm quite sure they're calling back home. saying come hurry up they're giving away everything. And it's the truth. I'm just afraid nothing's going to be last for my grandchildren.

    As a Texan, let me say the phrase I have been hearing for years. "How dare they act so cold to people in need! They should show compassion and help those poor people just looking for a better life."
    Everyone tries to act all high and mighty, until they come to your local area and start straining your resources.

    It's hilarious how all the Blue states and northern states don't see any issue w/ illegal immigrants crossing into AZ, TX, NM... ...UNTIL it's happening in THEIR towns/cities.

      @RICKS WORLD dereaux Quit signaling. If you actually read the whole thread you'd have read that I ABSOLUTELY, 100% support and encourage immigration for/by anyone who wishes to become a LEGAL citizen of this Country. There is a process, and yes that process needs to be cleaned up, but a process nonetheless. You cant steal a car from a dealership because applying for a loan was too difficult or expensive... you cant jump a border and skirt the immigration process because its too difficult for you, or too expensive. its easy to say "just let everyone come over" until a group of +30k show up over night in a town that only supports say a population of 6k ppl...If you know anything about economics then you know what that ends up doing to a local economy. No disrespect but theres a lot that plays into this topic that im not sure you understand/have considered. Have a nice day.

    This is happening in the UK too. Economic migrants are being housed at tax payers expense in impoverished areas of the country, away from the affluent areas, where there is already underfunding for local people.

      Stop blaming vulnerable populations for all of your issues and start questioning your employer at why they exploit you and fight for more workers rights. Poverty = crime and immigrants are not the ones causing the poverty. Read between the lines. Are you not aware of all of the unrest the US has caused in South America that probably put a lot of these people where they are today?

    If that is one of the public schools that was closed in Chicago, those buildings were constructed about 100 years ago. The elementary school I attended ,in Chicago, was built in the 1910s. I wonder if the city is maintaining the plumbing, electricity, and heating in that school! From what I remember , my old elementary school still had the furnace from the 1910s.
    There are so many homeless people that could benefit from turning those old schools into a shelter.

      @Pot Black But the illegal immigrants come first, don’t they? If they truly had planned for the homeless to be taken care of in that school, it would’ve happened. Instead, the homeless continue to freeze as the Mayor decides how much room is left for them after their political posturing has been exercised and secured.

      @Pot Black No offense taken, thank you for your reply. I grew up in Chicago,it's my childhood home.(1971-1982) I remember how our neighbors, in our apartment building, were just like family.

      @Marie Morgan My apologies if I came off salty. I agree with you and I see your point. While having shelter is better than none, I could imagine that bar isn't very high with these old buildings. I'm sure this one isn't that bad if they chose it over others, but just the same they probably all require complete renovation to modernize the building and convert it to residence use.
      My tone was because I thought you one of the many other commenter's complaining that this building should be used for homeless first before immigrants. Not that I disagree with the practicability of that proposal, I am just of the personal opinion that if immigrants were out of the equation, these same people would be complaining that this building was going to be used for the homeless.

      @Ginio Lamy Homeless people don't get all of what you said. I got hit by a drunk illegal immigrant with no license insurance or registration. I was in a hospital bed for 18 months and in physical therapy for 14 months. I shouldn't have survived, my back was broken in so many places I shouldn't be walking. My pelvis , most of the ribs on my left side, collar bone, left leg were all broken as well. I lost my house and almost everything I owned . I live in Michigan and was homeless for over 7 years fighting to get disability. I did 3 winters in a tent and 3 winters in a camper - MOSTLY IN THE NATIONAL FORREST. The illegal immigrant was not prosecuted or deported
