Denver Mayor Mike Johnston expressed concerns about the financial impacts of the migrant influx in the city.

He mentioned that without federal assistance, the city might need to cut its budget by about 10%, which would surpass the cuts made during the recession.

Johnston emphasized the need for federal action, citing a proposed $14 billion supplemental budget by President Biden to address the issue. (Trending: Melania Trump Announces Big Change For 2024)

Without this support, the city could face a $160 million impact, equivalent to 10% of its entire budget, leading to significant and historic cuts across city agencies.

“We’re having that hard conversation with our departments and our city right now,” Johnston said.

“We’d like to avoid that problem. We think if the federal government can take action on the supplemental budget that President Biden has proposed, that would be $14 billion that could help meet this need.”

“And so, we want to avoid having to make those hard trade-offs and we want the federal government to take action. If they don’t, we’ll be looking at a $160 million impact.”

“That’s 10% of our entire budget. So, if you imagine cutting all of your city agencies by 10%, and that would be historic cuts, larger than we’ve seen even in the recession times of the 2009 and 2010 cycle.”
