Denver Mayor Mike Johnston, a Democrat, recently unveiled the initial round of budget cuts aimed at addressing a $180 million shortfall resulting from challenges posed by the influx of illegal immigrants. The city faces the daunting task of slashing approximately $18 million per month from public services throughout 2024 to cover the expenses associated with providing services to undocumented individuals who have arrived in the city. The budget gap was brought to light in early January, prompting the need for swift and substantial adjustments. Democrats always put illegals before citizens.
The first casualties of these budget cuts are the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and Parks and Recreation. Mayor Johnston, emphasizing the gravity of the situation, hinted at the inevitability of additional austerity measures in the near future. The DMV will no longer process vehicle registrations in person, transitioning these services to an online format through mail, accompanied by rotating weekly closures starting March 4. Furthermore, DMV kiosks will be strategically placed in grocery stores, enabling immediate printing of registration stickers and accommodating drivers in need of emissions tests.
Commencing on February 20, Denver Recreation Centers will witness a reduction in operating hours due to the budget cuts. Regional Centers, operating seven days a week, will now be open for six days a week, while those operating for six days will experience reduced hours. Additionally, there will be a 25 percent reduction in summer programming at parks.
VERY IMPORTANT ASPECT: ‘The buried lead in this story is that Denver is pushing illegal aliens online DMV for I.D.’s etc., then, they will mine that data for new voters. That’s one of the benefits of giving all these illegals cell phones. This is happening all over the country.’ said Jungle Ball, responding to Chad Prather’s vid below

‘Denver Mayor Johnston cares more about illegals than Denver Citizens. Cutting resources to children should never be the answer. Denver has been a Sanctuary City since 2017. Johnston was in the State Senate then. Denver policies created this not Republicans,’ said Southern FFA Family.
In an effort to trim costs, the city will discontinue the hiring of new, younger personnel, opting instead to rotate existing staff and eliminating seasonal workers. Mayor Johnston clarified during a Q&A session that layoffs for current employees were not imminent, though potential impacts on hourly workers and reductions in summer hires were acknowledged. The decision to forgo planting annual spring and summer flower beds is another cost-cutting measure in response to the financial strain.
Far Left Mayor Johnston stressed the need for “shared sacrifice” to navigate the challenges posed by the arrival of over 40,000 illegal immigrants in the past year. He characterized the budget cuts as part of a larger plan aimed at upholding the city’s values in a difficult situation. The mayor emphasized the importance of balancing the needs of both the newly arrived individuals and taxpayers expecting specific services from the city. Why are American citizens always asked to sacrifice for fake or completely designed crisis after crisis?
Denver Mayor Mike Johnston said the lack of federal funding for the migrant crisis is forcing the city to make budget cuts.

The mayor acknowledged that these initial cuts were not the last or the most challenging as the city grapples with the complexities of the situation. He framed the budget cuts as a response to the failed bipartisan supplemental spending bill that sought to address the U.S. border crisis while also providing aid to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan. With the failure of the measure in Congress, Mayor Johnston pointed out that no federal funding would be available to help bridge the $180 million budget gap required to support newly arrived illegal immigrants.
Expressing pride in the city’s efforts to assist illegal immigrants, Mayor Johnston shifted blame away from them, placing responsibility on Congress to manage the escalating number of migrants crossing the border and seeking asylum. He criticized Republicans in Washington for blocking the bipartisan border bill, asserting that its failure was the reason behind the city’s budget cuts.

The mayor contended that the bill included provisions enabling illegal immigrants to enter the country with work authorization, accompanied by federal resources to aid cities like Denver in successful integration. Without federal support, he stressed the necessity of making changes to the city budget and support mechanisms for newcomers. Departments have been tasked with identifying areas for budget reductions, with initial hopes of smaller cuts with federal support now dashed.
To sum up this Democrat lunacy: Mayor Johnston’s announcement of budget cuts reflects the city’s proactive response to financial challenges arising from the influx of illegal immigrants. The focus on shared sacrifice and the need for federal support underscores the complexity of managing these issues at the local level. The ongoing debate in Congress adds a layer of complexity, with the mayor expressing frustration over the failure of a bipartisan bill that could have alleviated the burden on Denver and similar cities grappling with these challenges.
The goal of it all is Democrat voters and the eventual bankrupting of the U.S. so the Democrats can attempt their Great Marxist Reset. Well, this year Congress estimates the cost for illegals alone is well over 451 BILLION dollars. We do not have the money, which means the Fed will have to print the money, destroying the dollar further, which means prices for all items are about to get even more expensive while the Biden Admin Marxists lie and tell us inflation is over. Fun times ahead until we can get Trump in to clean this damned mess up.
