Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson recently announced a $17.6 million investment in predominantly Black and Latino-owned businesses to feed asylum-seeking new arrivals, which he described as “capturing the soul of Chicago.”

This initiative, in partnership with a nonprofit and the State of Illinois, aimed to provide meals for migrants in city-operated shelters.

“Working in close coordination with the City of Chicago, the Food Depository convened a network of BIPOC restaurants and caterers to provide daily hot meals at an expanding number of shelters,” the press release stated.

Johnson noted that the “$17 million investment for these 18 black and brown small businesses…really captures what I call the soul of Chicago.”

“It’s who we are,” he said.

However, despite the mayor’s pride in the investment, reports have revealed squalid conditions in the shelters, including infestations, water quality issues, and open sewage problems.

The mayor has faced criticism for delaying the implementation of his original 60-day limit policy on housing migrants in city-run shelters.
