With Texas Governor Greg Abbott busing illegal aliens to Chicago, elected officials in Illinois have been scrambling to find a solution to this problem.
Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker has come up with a novel idea. Namely, “emergency housing” for illegal aliens in addition to “health care screenings, the offer of COVID-19 vaccines and … additional legal resettlement assistance.” Pritzker’s proposal comes during a time when Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has labeled Abbott’s deployment of migrant buses “racist and xenophobic”, “immoral”, and “unpatriotic.”
For those unaware, Chicago is a sanctuary city where illegal aliens are shielded from deportation or prosecution, despite federal immigration laws on the books.
BLP has previously reported on Abbott sending illegal aliens to New York City and Washington DC as a way to have these cities pull their weight as Texas’ resources are over-stretched in trying to contain the never-ending deluge of migrants invading the country from the south. This invasion is largely facilitated by the Biden regime’s lax migration policies.
As John Binder of Breitbart News noted, “Pritzker’s pledge of emergency housing for migrants comes as Chicagoans face sky-high rents and housing costs.” Recent reports point to Chicagoans paying roughly 20% more in rent in 2022 compared to the previous.
Currently, the average rent in Chicago is over $2,900, which marks a roughly 20% rise in the cost of rent compared to 2021. Binder observed that “Rents in Chicago have increased so much that tenants are forming unions to fight their landlords and the city.”
Mass migration increases housing demand, especially in urban centers that are job magnets for migrants. Real estate investors will often make major bank off of this influx of migrants who put upward pressure on housing prices.
For urban Democrats, this doesn’t matter. They’re already the party of finance capital and the great replacement, so they end up […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
