US Sanctuary Cities Struggle With Rising Costs of Migrant Care

Sanctuary cities in the United States are grappling with increasing financial burdens as the costs of caring for new migrants continue to escalate. Chicago recently announced a $538 million budget deficit, with a significant portion attributed to its ongoing migrant crisis.

New York City, another sanctuary city, has also faced financial challenges due to the surge in migrant arrivals, with Mayor Eric Adams warning of potential cuts to services and projected costs of $12 billion by 2025. These financial strains underscore the complex issue of managing the influx of migrants in sanctuary cities across the country.
