Over the past few years, with the mixture of electing of ultra woke mayor Brandon Johnson and Joe Biden’s open border policies, the city of Chicago has seen a dramatic rise in crime.
According to police data, there has been 11,333 percent increase in crimes committed by illegal aliens from Venezuela, for example, since 2021. Now, it appears that the crime has begun spilling over into the city’s suburbs.
Fox News reports:
From Oct. 23 to Jan. 17, a total of 47 migrants were arrested in Oak Brook, Illinois, mostly for alleged property crimes, according to Brian Strockis, the chief of police for the Oak Brook Police Department.
The latest incident involved an Ecuadorian migrant who resides in Chicago and is accused of stealing more than $3,000 worth of merchandise from retail stores and evading Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) supervision by cutting off his electronic monitoring device.
On Jan. 13, Oak Brook officers responded to a retail theft call from a local Macy’s store. Upon arrival, and after conducting an investigation into what took place, officers found that 32-year-old Jaime Ubaldo Obando-Andrade entered the store and put on a jacket with an approximate value of $395 and left without paying for it.
Following a search of Obando-Andrade’s vehicle, officers “found approximately $3,000 worth of suspected stolen merchandise as well as rolls of tinfoil,” according to a press release from the office of DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin.
Under Biden’s leadership, U.S. Border Patrol encountered more than 2.2 million migrants crossing the southern border during the 2022 fiscal year and more than 2 million in the 2023 fiscal year, according to recentt data.
Last week, after years of denial, Joe Biden admitted that the southern border is no longer secure.

HEINRICH: Do you think its unconstitutional? (NO ANSWER)

“What do you say to Republicans who are trying to impeach Mayorkas?” Jacqui Heinrich, a reporter from Fox News, asked the president.
“I don’t get it,” Biden responded.
Moments later Heinrich asked Biden if he believes the border is secure.
“No, it’s not,” Biden responded.
Over the past year, “sanctuary city” supporters like Brandon Johnson have begged the White House for help in dealing with the rising undocumented population in their cities.
