Patience wearing thin between migrants, traditionally homeless in Denver
When a bus from Texas dropped off some migrants Monday morning in front of the Colorado Capitol, Evan Dreyer from the mayor’s office blasted the atrocity. “These are folks who have come from the Texas border after long journeys, and they are not prepared for cold weather,” Dreyer told the Denver Post. “And to drop them off like that, just randomly, in the cold — in the freezing cold — is inhumane, dangerous and it puts their lives at risk.

Denver bussing migrants to Aurora, council member Jurinsky alleges
Aurora City Council member Danielle Jurinsky said Monday that Denver Mayor Mike Johnston is bussing migrants into Aurora and buying them hotel rooms. Jurinsky made the revelation toward the end of the meeting during council report period. “I have a report that I would like to bring to the people of Aurora,” Jurinsky said. She went on to explain how Denver, a so-called sanctuary city, is bussing migrants out of its boundaries and into Aurora. She said one of her employees who was living at the Quality Inn at Mississippi and Abilene was tossed onto the street because of the incoming migrants. Jurinsky alleged the contract with the hotel doesn’t even have Denver City Council approval yet. She said the mayor must have thought this would fly under the radar. “Little did they ever think there would be an employee of a sitting council member” displaced. She called her employees “hard-working American citizens.” She said her employee and his husband lived at the hotel with their service animal for about a year.
