Chicago Alderwoman Julia Ramirez had to be rushed away by police this week when she was confronted by a mob of angry residents who were protesting the site of a new migrant camp.
Tensions have been rising in Chicago for months as the city has become overwhelmed with illegal border crossers.
A large portion of people who live in the city clearly do not want the sanctuary city policies that have been embraced by their Democrat leaders.

Revolt: Diverse Chicago Suburbanites Block Migrant Tent City, Mob Alderwoman; Police Spirit Her Away
Chicago Police rushed Alderwoman Julia Ramirez away from Mayor Brandon Johnson’s proposed site of a “migrant tent city” in Brighton Park after local residents gathered Thursday to vociferously oppose the project.
Hundreds of angry residents gathered on the Southwest Side near 38th Street and California Avenue, where Johnson is planning to erect a tent city for illegal border crossers, even as winter approaches.
City crews have been cutting down trees, clearing ground clutter, and leveling the ground in preparation for the construction of the migrant housing facility.
The 12th Ward Alderwoman arrived on the scene quietly with an aide, but once protesters recognized her, they began to confront her about the mayor’s plans. According to the Chicago Tribune protesters began yelling and surrounded her aggressively.
“The protesters, mostly Latino and Asian, had been holding signs in English and in their native languages with messages for the mayor and Ramirez, demanding that the construction in the area cease immediately,” the paper reported.
