Illegals Issue List of 13 Demands

( – Amidst the chaos of the illegal immigration crisis, and in a real-life example of biting the hand that feeds you, illegals in Denver, Colorado, presented a list of 13 specific demands they insist the city must meet before they consider relocating from their crowded encampment to designated shelters.

These undocumented individuals, many of whom are families residing under a bridge and near train tracks, relayed their demands following a request from Democratic Mayor Mike Johnston to vacate the area.

Their primary demand was the ability to prepare their own meals using fresh, culturally relevant ingredients provided by the city rather than relying on premade meals. They emphasized, “Also, people will not be punished for bringing in and eating outside food.”

A Housekeys Action Network Denver spokesperson, V. Reeves, highlighted concerns about the food quality provided, stating, “There have been so many complaints about the food being spoiled or not being enough and malnutrition amongst children.”

Further demands included unrestricted access to showers, with the migrants asserting, “We are not in the military, we’re civilians.” They also requested regular medical check-ups, stable housing assurances, and a clear disciplinary process within shelters.

Moreover, additional requirements included employment support, consultations with a free immigration lawyer for each individual or family, privacy within the shelter, and the assurance of respectful treatment from shelter staff.

They also called for transportation for children to schools, a prohibition on separating families, immediate discussions with city officials about improving support for migrants, and a documented summary of their demands in both English and Spanish.

A spokesperson for Denver Human Services, Jon Ewing, remarked on the city’s efforts to transition the families to shelters, “We’ve been offering time and shelter, basically just trying to get families to leave that camp and come inside.”

Reeves expressed discontent with this reduction in April, stating, “Every new migrant that comes is going to be left to fend for themselves after 24 to 72 hours. It’s a slap in the face and an offensive period of time.”

Denver has faced significant challenges, having accommodated over 40,000 migrants in the past year alone, spending more than $68 million, with $35 million of that in just four months.

In response to the city’s strained resources, Denver residents were asked to open their homes to migrant families as four shelters closed to save on budget costs.
