Chicago’s suburbs are now banning buses from dropping off illegal immigrants
02/16/2024 // Zoey Sky // Views

More Chicago suburbs are taking a stand, especially as more buses keep dropping off illegal immigrants in various areas, such as the northwest suburban city of Woodstock, Illinois.

To address the issue, the city council met to pass an ordinance that would prevent chartered buses from leaving illegal immigrants in their city. Woodstock passed new rules requiring buses to file applications at least five days before dropping off passengers in the city, which is about 50 miles northwest of Chicago.

Early in January, the Woodstock City Council voted unanimously on an ordinance that was designed to crack down on bus drop-offs, particularly those transporting asylum-seekers from the southern U.S. border.

Vehicles that leave passengers without submitting applications five days in advance and coordinating with Woodstock will have their buses impounded and the bus companies will have to pay fines of $10,000 and an additional $750 per passenger.

The vote followed after about an hour of public comments from community members, who shared various points of view. Many expressed concerns about the potential repercussions of the influx of migrants in the community.

During the meeting, Woodstock Mayor Mike Turner emphasized that they were there to discuss the ordinance. He interrupted one speaker who started to discuss national policies related to immigration. Councilmember Natalie Ziemba agreed, noting that the city council wasn’t going to debate federal, state or county immigration policy.

Councilmember Tom Nierman said the ordinance was merely a "stopgap measure." Meanwhile, Councilmember Gordie Tebo said the city lacks the infrastructure to support the migrants. (Related: Several LA hotels under investigation for hiring ILLEGALS to replace striking workers.)

In a Facebook post, Turner explained that the city had developed a plan. "For the City of Woodstock, we determined that our approach would be to encourage and direct these migrants to accept transportation into the City of Chicago via train or bus so that they can make use of the City of Chicago/State of Illinois/Federal government resources available to provide assistance to them," Turner wrote.

Illegal migrants of all ages are being dropped off

Councilmember Melissa McMahon related that she helped migrants who were dropped off at the Woodstock Metra train station. McMahon admitted that she was conflicted about the ordinance even though she voted in its favor.

According to McMahon, migrants of all ages were being dropped off at the city's train station. McMahon said she saw old migrants and children as young as 18 months "who are not prepared for this weather." She added that they were dropped off by "a very nondescript, white tour bus."

Aside from Woodstock, Rosemont and Cicero have passed ordinances to limit or ban buses from dropping off illegal migrants in their jurisdictions. Aurora, Matteson, Elburn, Chicago Ridge and Posen have also passed similar rules.

Cities throughout northern Chicago are opposing Illinois Democrat Gov. J.B. Pritzker's "sanctuary city" measures. The busing scheme stems from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who has transported border crossers from his state to New York City, Chicago and other blue cities.
