Additional Chicago Police units were dispatched to a Chicago police station on a recent morning following an incident where migrants resisted when officers attempted to apprehend another migrant for assault.
During the confrontation, several officers were subjected to physical violence and threats by the individuals involved. It’s worth noting that in a typical situation, these migrants might be swiftly deported to their countries of origin.
However, in the current state of affairs, it is possible that they may receive some form of financial reward or benefit in the context of the policies implemented during the Biden administration. According to an officer who spoke to CWB Chicago, “The entire group at the camp attempted to physically interfere and prevent the arrest, with one migrant even attempting to assault a sergeant.”
A CPD supervisor asked for more units to come to help with the revolt: “Line in front of the station, cameras on! Line in front of the station, cameras on!”
Another officer said the migrants were “a little bit belligerent, but we got it under control.”
“We have about 200 migrants,” another sergeant said.
Migrants are residing within CPD (Chicago Police Department) stations, despite the city having allocated over $200 million for their support. Questions arise regarding the allocation of these funds.
In recent developments reported by WGN:
One incident, involving two individuals identified as migrants by police sources, unfolded shortly after 6:15 a.m. on a Wednesday. The first individual allegedly took property from the district and attempted to flee, while the second allegedly assaulted a responding officer, causing minor injuries that required transportation to an area hospital. The injured officer is reported to be in good condition.
Subsequently, around 9:45 a.m., two additional violent or threatening incidents were reported:
Juan Marquez Vienna, aged 20, was arrested and now faces one misdemeanor count of criminal trespass to property and one misdemeanor count of assault, according to New Affairs.
Four hours later, 20-year-old Anna Rondon was arrested and charged with one misdemeanor count of battery against a 12th district officer.
Chicago police had to call backup units to the Near West district station yesterday morning after migrants "revolted" upon seeing one of their own being arrested for assault.https://t.co/qhe8EdPMeC
