St. Louis to ‘resettle Chicago migrants’
St. Louis city aims to “resettle Chicago migrants”. The city will set up a foundation to provide jobs to thousands of people. St. Louis civic leader also visited Chicago to explore the migrant situation in the city.

What can migrants expect?
St. Louis officials will provide help to migrants who started their asylum claims in their home countries under the Joe Biden administration program. Under the program, the authorities will serve thousands of migrants.
The City will offer housing, employment, and social services to some asylum seekers. Attorney Jerry Schlichter, founder of Arch Grants, has said, “We will provide help to the people who have a work permit, we are offering them the opportunity to build their lives here.”
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services program granted “travel authorization to up to 30,000 noncitizens each month.” U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, part of the Homeland Security Department, helps manage the U.S. immigration system.
Meanwhile, New York City has toughened its stance against migrant families. Eric Adams, Mayor of New York City, announced a 60-day limit on how long a migrant family with children can stay at any migrant shelter. However, Brad Lander, New York City Comptroller, also criticized the mayor’s handling of the migrant crisis.
