Gov. Pritzker Lays Out State Funding Plan For Influx of Migrants

24,000 migrants and asylum seekers are in Illinois and many more are expected to arrive.


Governor JB Pritzker laid out plans for caring for those people and the money that the state will spend to do it. He says the weather is only going to be harder to live through, but the state is prepared to do what it can.



The state will budget $160 million, standing up an welcome center, building a tent camp to house 2,000 people, and money to resettle existing and incoming migrants.
