A Chicago government employee and Democrat activist has called on city officials to drop its sanctuary city status, months after suing the city last October after Mayor Brandon Johnson began setting up migrant shelters in now-packed warehouses, and a “field house” at Amundsen Park, a popular location for youth sports that’s been rendered unusable.
Cata Truss told Fox News on Wednesday that Democrat voters like her are growing increasingly frustrated.
“There is no moneys to take care of the migrants, nor is there moneys to take care of the people that are there. And so we have a mess on our hands,” she said, arguing that Windy City residents are upset over the city’s prioritization of migrants over low-income residents, and that “no one was willing” to speak with her after contacting Democratic elected officials.
“If you are all not willing to sit down with us, if you’re not willing to talk to us, why should we continue to support you?” she said. “A lot of us [Democrats] are jumping ship.”
Last May, residents demanded action after the arrival of thousands of migrants.

Mayor Brandon Johnson defended himself on Wednesday, saying “I know folks may question my style, but don’t question my leadership.”
Truss said she couldn’t understand Johnson’s sentiment.
“He has to have regrets, because people have regrets. We are not happy with what is happening here,” she said, ading that she’s disappointed with President Biden for not using his executive authority to fix the situation at the southern border.
