Sanctuary City Urges Illegal Immigrants To Leave

Denver officials are pleading with illegal immigrants to leave the city — offering free bus tickets to cities across America and Canada to encourage a quick exodus.

A viral video shows Denver’s Newcomer Communications Liaison Andres Carrera urging immigrants to leave, saying, “New York gives you more. Chicago gives you more. So I suggest you go there, where there [are] longer-term shelter [options].”

“There are also more job opportunities there,” he added. The video garnered 3.4 million views in one day.

9News reported that Denver faces a $120 million budget crisis and that, according to Carrera, the city’s severe “lack of resources” means that immigrants who choose to stay will have a “bleak future.”

Hoping to prompt immigrants to leave, Carrera said, “If you stay here, you are going to suffer even more, and I don’t want to see this.”

Noting how residents have stepped up to meet needs associated with the growing immigration crisis, Carrera said, “I want to thank every resident in the city who has showed up to cook a meal for someone who has arrived, who has welcomed somebody to their home, who has offered them a job.”

The Post Millennial reported that Carrera’s comments included a jab at the Biden administration. To immigrants, the Communications liaison said, “We will help you find your way.” To residents who helped meet the needs associated with the influx of immigrants, Carrera said, “You’ve done your part.” Of city leaders, Carrera said, “The city will do its part” in providing bus tickets out of the city. To the Biden administration, Carrera said, “The federal government did not do their part.”

The Democrat-led sanctuary city is now turning immigrants out of shelters. Fox 31 reported that approximately 4000 were cycled out of shelters last month as their stay-tenure expired. Budget shortfalls have prompted cutbacks in services as thousands of immigrants are on waiting lists for housing. Reporter Erika Gonzales also noted the rise in homeless encampments across the city.

In late January, CNN reported Denver was “near its breaking point” and that Mayor Johnson said, “Our city is witnessing an unfolding emergency triggered by the mass arrival of people from outside the city.”

With more than 40,000 illegal immigrants vying for services and the city facing a $120 million budget shortfall, residents and government officials are now encouraging immigrants to leave.
