    Denver Has an Immigration Problem: Can the City Survive?

    Denver sowed the seeds for this illegal immigration crisis years ago, just as many other big, blue cities have done.

    Denver is buckling under a financial crisis caused by illegal immigration. But the fault lies not in the stars, but with the city itself.

    Like many other jurisdictions, Denver is paying the price for President Joe Biden’s border crisis—and for its own status as a sanctuary city. In 2017, the city passed an ordinance codifying its resistance to federal immigration enforcement. Then-Mayor Michael Hancock, a Democrat, said of illegal immigrants at the time: “We’ve got your backs.”

    Since Biden has been in office, we see what it’s like when local and federal authorities are equally lawless: Unchecked catastrophic chaos and financial implosion.

    “Denver will cut hours at recreation centers, end in-person vehicle-registration renewals and eliminate spring flower beds to save $5 million this year, a response to the migrant crisis that is expected to cost the city $180 million,” the Colorado Sun reported.

    But the city isn’t just cutting corners on niche city services.

    According to KUSA-TV, the local NBC News affiliate, the city is asking nearly every city department—from animal shelters to the police department—to make budget cuts so they can meet the cost of the new arrivals.

    The Biden-caused border crisis isn’t just an economic or law enforcement problem; it’s a direct attack on self-government. It’s an effective tool to water down and obliterate the meaning of citizenship. It’s an attempt to transform the United States from a free republic based on deliberation and consent of the governed into a vast economic zone of farcical ballot-harvesting and technocratic rule from on high.

    Denver sowed the seeds for this illegal immigration crisis years ago, just as many other big, blue cities have done. Federal policies exposed the reality of the problem. They are now paying a price for their decisions—as they must, if we as a nation have any hope of pulling out of this catastrophe.
