Up to 1,600 ILLEGALS arrive in Los Angeles EVERY WEEK – most of them get there on their own
Los Angeles became a “sanctuary city” for illegal immigrants barely five months ago. Now, it is slowly being overrun by the migrant crisis caused by President Joe Biden.
According to Angelica Salas, executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA), “between 1,000 and 1,600 people” arrive in LA every week.
In June, the city council voted to make LA a “sanctuary city” just like New York City (NYC) and Chicago, which are also run by Democrats. Because of this, conservatives in Texas and other frontier states took them at their word by busing illegal aliens to their jurisdictions.
But unlike in NYC and Chicago, bused migrants are considered a “minority” of the arrivals LA is dealing with. According to Salas, the majority of illegals are still those “who come through the California border and who walk here or get here on their own.”
Illegals strain the City of Angels’ resources
While the Golden State struggles to deal with the constant arrival of illegals bused from Florida and Texas, the City of Angels is also having a hard time finding adequate housing for those people. At the same time, local agencies warn that they will need additional support and resources to meet the demand.
CHIRLA said that recent batches of illegals are under “increased scrutiny” because of the influx of people at the southern border and the actions of the Florida and Texas government.
As LA clutches at straws because of the flood of illegals, many organizations and entities continue to provide support and resources for them. At least 85 migrant families are staying at the Union Rescue Mission downtown, with an additional 27 families near Compton at Angeles House.
However, CHIRLA warned that “there is a pressing need for more resources to assist asylum seekers in the city.”
Meanwhile, the hospitality workers union and concerned citizens are worried about some hotels hiring migrants to replace striking workers, which could potentially violate labor laws. These allegations are currently under investigation by the LA District Attorney’s office.
Union officials said that several hotels in Santa Monica and near LA International Airport have been hiring migrant workers, some of whom are homeless and staying at the Union Rescue Mission on downtown Skid Row.
The union warned that there were instances of one child missing school to work at a hotel. Additionally, the union said migrant workers are receiving paychecks without any documentation about the amount of time they worked.
Salas alleged that these immigrant workers are vulnerable and that they are abused in these cases.
As illegals continue to flock to LA, the city continues to bend over backward as it tries to support them and ensure that their alleged rights and well-being are upheld. (Related: El Paso Sector Border Patrol raided 281 human smuggling stash houses in 2023.)
The ongoing efforts of organizations like CHIRLA and the involvement of city officials highlight the importance of addressing the many problems concerning recent migration to the city, along with how to keep up with quickly depleting resources.
