    Like communities around the country, Chicago is hemorrhaging cash to deal with the devastating consequences of Joe Biden’s border disaster. On Monday, the Budget and Government Operations Committee of the Chicago City Council voted 20-8 to send Mayor Brandon Johnson’s request for $70 million in additional City funding to care for illegals to the full Council. CBS News reports that the request is part of a spending plan announced by Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle in February. The State of Illinois and Cook County pledged a combined $250 million to help fund the crisis,...

    DENVER — Gov. Jared Polis signed a bill into law Monday that officially eliminates most restrictions on how many unrelated roommates can live together in Colorado. House Bill 1007 prohibits local governments from enacting occupancy limits, which Polis and other critics of the policy have derided as discriminatory and outdated. Roughly two dozen Colorado cities have such restrictions on the books, though lawmakers said that only a few — including the college town of Fort Collins — actively enforce them. “This issue is both a housing issue and a civil rights issue,” Polis said during a bill-signing ceremony outside the...

    Colorado House Democrats passed “assault weapons” ban legislation Sunday to prohibit the sale of AR-15s and certain 9mm pistols. On March 20, 2024, Breitbart News reported that the legislation, HB24-1292, bans 9mm pistols that have threaded barrels and accept a detachable magazine. Moreover, the text of HB24-1292 makes clear that a semiautomatic handgun of any caliber would be banned if it takes a detachable magazine and has a threaded barrel.

    Colorado Policitcs ^ | Apr 3, 2024 Updated Apr 4, 2024 | Ernest Luning
    Republican congressional candidates Gabe Evans and Janak Joshi will face off in the GOP primary to decide who challenges Democratic U.S. Rep. Yadira Caraveo in Colorado's most closely divided district. Evans, a first-term state representative from Fort Lupton, won top-line designation at the GOP's 8th Congressional District assembly on Saturday in Greeley. In contrast, Joshi, a former three-term state representative from Colorado Springs, barely made the primary, with only a few delegate votes to spare. A third Republican who went through the assembly process, insurance agent and first-time candidate Joseph Andujo, endorsed Evans after falling short of the 30% support...

    Waitstaff declined to serve Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert more drinks During the New York Young Republican Club’s annual gala in December, attendees have claimed. Three months after her theatre scandal, Boebert, 37, was seen repeatedly trying to take selfies with Trump at their shared table at the New York Young Republican Club’s annual gala in Manhattan, at Cipriani Wall Street. The alleged outbursts, multiple witnesses claimed, prompted Trump's security to intervene, requesting she desist. Still, the GOP frontrunner issued a glowing endorsement for the firebrand this past month - as a series of consecutive scandals threatens to upend her congressional...

    Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) clinched the first spot on the ballot for her Colorado GOP primary after securing the highest percentage of delegate support on Friday at the district assembly. Boebert, who is running for the full two-year term in former Republican Rep. Ken Buck’s eastern Colorado district, received 41 percent support from the 527 delegates gathered at the assembly, according to the Colorado Sun. That allows her name to be placed first on the GOP ballot in June.

    A Denver official recently encouraged new migrants there to pack their bags for New York or other US cities — warning they would “suffer even more” if they stayed in the Colorado capital, according to reportedly obtained footage. City worker Andres Carrera told a group of migrants staying inside a shelter that Denver didn’t have the resources to support them as he made clear that “the opportunities are over,” according to a video obtained by 9 News and aired over the weekend. “We are not going to block you if you want to stay here … I am here to...

    Outgoing Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) said Thursday on CNN’s “OutFront” that the Republican-led House impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden’s possible involvement with his son Hunter’s business deals was a “sideshow” that needed to end. Buck said, “I think the investigation is warranted in terms of looking at what Hunter Biden did. I think that we may want to look at laws that restrict the family members of the president and vice president in terms of outside of influences.”

    When a wave of migrants began arriving in Democratic-run cities far from the Southern border two years ago, officials welcomed them with open arms. Now they’re limiting aid to new arrivals as their instinct for compassion confronts hard budgetary realities. In recent days, New York and Chicago — two of the nation’s largest cities — have instituted substantial changes to their shelter policies. In Chicago, the city began evicting migrants who had overstayed a new 60-day time limit, saying it did not have the resources to meet the need. In New York, migrants had benefited from the city’s right to...

    Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) slammed the claims that he’s resigning from Congress to hinder Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-Colo.) chances of claiming his 4th Congressional District seat. Buck initially announced last year that he would not be running for reelection. He announced his early retirement from Congress on Tuesday, triggering a special election to fill his spot. Boebert characterized Buck’s decision as “weak sauce,” calling it a “gift to the Uniparty.” “The establishment concocted a swampy backroom deal to try to rig an election I’m winning by 25 points,” she said in comments earlier this week. Buck fired back on Thursday,...
