Backup law enforcement units rushed to a Chicago police station yesterday morning after migrants “revolted” against officers.
Crowds of illegal border crossers “tried to physically intervene” when officers tried to arrest another migrant for assault, police said.
Several officers were battered and threatened by the aggressive migrants.
“The whole camp tried to physically intervene and pull the offender from police,” an officer told CWB Chicago.
“One migrant took a swing at a sergeant.
A CPD supervisor asked for more units to come to help with the revolt: “Line in front of the station, cameras on!
“Line in front of the station, cameras on!”
Another officer said the migrants were “a little bit belligerent, but we got it under control.”
“We have about 200 migrants,” another sergeant said.
Migrants are living in CPD stations, despite Chicago spending over $200 million on them.
The issue raises major concerns about where the huge sums of taxpayer money went.
During the confrontation, four migrants were arrested.
