The Chicago Tribune reported on a growing trend of migrants, particularly from Venezuela, choosing to return home due to limited resources for illegal immigrants in the city.
The story of Michael Castejon and his family exemplifies this trend, as they faced homelessness and lack of job opportunities.
“The American Dream doesn’t exist anymore; there’s nothing here for us,” Castejon stated. (Trending: Biden Baffles Thanksgiving Guests With Bizarre Joke)
The media complained about Trump's alleged plan to build massive detention centers for illegal migrants.
Meanwhile Mayor Eric Adams of Sanctuary NY City is promoting the one he built after telling illegals to move to his city.

“How many more months of living in the streets will it take? No, no more. It’s better that I leave. At least I have my mother back home.”
“We didn’t know things would be this hard. I thought the process was faster,” Castejon added.
“We just want to be home. If we’re going to be sleeping in the streets here, we’d rather be sleeping in the streets over there.”
The city’s resources are strained, with over 19,000 migrants arriving since August 2022, and more than 68,000 citizens grappling with homelessness.
Chicago has resorted to housing migrants in unconventional spaces due to the overwhelming influx.
The worsening crisis has prompted local leaders to discuss the city’s status as a “sanctuary city” for migrants.
