Denver Reducing City Services to Offset Migrant Costs

Denver Democrat Mayor Mike Johnston announced on Friday that the city will reduce its services to offset the costs caused by a migrant influx, according to the Washington Examiner.

“This is a plan for shared sacrifice,” Johnston said at a press conference. “This is what good people do in hard situations as you try to manage your way to serve all of your values. We want to continue to be a city that does not have women and children out on the street in tents in 20-degree weather.”

This decision comes as the city, already grappling with a longstanding homeless situation, faces the added measure of supporting over 40,000 illegal migrants who have arrived within the past year, including 4,000 currently under the city’s care.
