I mean, A tent city in winter in Chicago is not a great idea. Not in any way.
Winter. Cold Wind. Below zero temps. A tent city for anyone is a stupid idea.
Migrant or no, illegal or not, don’t put people outside to freeze to death in winter. Send them back south. Likely safer and more cost effective.
Camping in winter is one thing…if you have the gear. Not so much living through a winter in a tent.
Someone must be making a LOT of money for this idea to go forward. Big money.
It isn’t like there aren’t a lot of abandoned grocery stores and warehouses that could be easily fixed up that could house the same number of people in much greater safety and comfort for the same kind of money. Plus these places would have bathroom facilities that an outdoor tent city wouldn’t. Nothing like an outhouse at -20F.
Like I said, someone’s gotta be making big money.
