    Chicago updates ‘new arrivals plan’ as police districts clear housing of migrants

    Now, the Mayor’s office is updating its “new arrivals plan.”

    City officials say police stations will no longer serve as emergency shelters. While migrants may still arrive at these locations, the city asserts that it will expedite their placement into shelters.

    No buses were expected from the border on Monday.

    During a Monday afternoon press conference, Mayor Brandon Johnson praised his administration for its handling of the situation, placing blame on Texas Governor Greg Abbott, especially when questioned about the health of new arrivals.

    Earlier this month, the Brighton Park migrant encampment was shut down by the state of Illinois amid construction due to environmental concerns.
