Climate warning

Chicago and other US cities struggle to house asylum-seekers as winter weather hits.

In Chicago, amid the arrival of wintry weather, several migrant families without shelter were temporarily relocated to the basement of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in a nearby suburb. This last-minute solution, organized by volunteers and suburban officials, highlights the ongoing struggle to house asylum-seekers in Chicago and other cities before the harsh winter. Mayor Brandon Johnson has proposed solutions like winterized tents and more shelters, but some volunteers and local leaders argue that the response remains slow and inefficient, attributing the issue to infrastructure and planning deficiencies. https://apnews.com/article/migrants-chicago-wintry-weather-40e9204b3666770298507bd213b98500

                  Housing problems are everywhere and every government should come together to stop such calamities from occuring

                      The government has a major role to play in providing proper clothings and care to the asylum seekers during harsh weather conditions

                        @abraham_jok_atem I am imagining they leave their countries maybe due to war only to go and face harsh conditions/unfavourable

                        Giving the refugees a chance to live in a habitable area is a good gesture,all governments should up their game on increasing efforts to help them,it's a challenge but still big steps can be taken

                            Ensuring proper housing and support for asylum-seekers in harsh winter conditions is a humanitarian imperative, and it requires comprehensive and coordinated efforts from all levels of government.
