Denver Mayor Mike Johnston announced on Friday that the city will be implementing several cuts to its services.

The funds saved from these cuts will be redirected towards addressing the influx of illegal migrants that have entered the sanctuary city since President Joe Biden took office. Johnston emphasized that these initial cuts are just the beginning and that there may be more reductions in city services in the future.

The first areas to be impacted by these cuts are the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the Parks and Recreation department. On-call and seasonal workers will be the most affected by these changes.

Johnston placed the blame for this crisis on Republicans, stating that it was a direct result of Joe Biden's policies. He pointed out that during President Trump's tenure in 2017, his policies led to the lowest number of illegal migrants entering the US in 50 years. However, under President Biden's administration in 2023, there has been an invasion of illegal aliens at the border.

Mayor Mike Johnston expressed his gratitude to those in attendance and proceeded to discuss the devastating impact of the failure of Republican leadership in Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform. He highlighted the consequences this would have on city budgets and the services that can be provided to newcomers in the city. Johnston also mentioned that the city will have to make difficult decisions regarding budget reductions in order to address the ongoing costs associated with the influx of migrants.

While these initial cuts are the first steps, Johnston acknowledged that they may not be the last and that more difficult decisions may lie ahead. He referred to this plan as a "shared sacrifice."

The open borders policy under President Biden's administration has resulted in "shared sacrifices" for everyone involved. This situation has raised concerns among conservatives who believe that Democrats are not effectively addressing the issue.
