Yesterday Alderman Jenn Carrillo posted a video on her Alderman Facebook page instructing illegals on what to do if ICE comes to their house or business. She claims she has been advocating for illegals for 10 years. She must think illegals all speak Spanish, she used both Spanish and English. Jenn is opposed to actually deporting people who have orders of deportation. If you are on Facebook you can see the video here: https://www.facebook.com/AlderwomanJenn/
Question Jenn: Why do people come to America illegally? Why did your family come to America illegally?
Do people come here to turn America into the country they left, or do they come her because America is “the shining city on the hill”? If people come here for opportunity, why are you trying to destroy opportunity with democratic socialism?
Illegals suppress wages. They are willing to work for less, If illegals weren’t working for less money wages would have to increase. Jenn, don’t talk about the wage disparity when you support illegals taking jobs.
ICE is enforcing deportation orders. The law is immaterial to at least one Bloomington Alderman.
Congrats Ward 6! Only 716 of you bothered to vote, 379 of you voted for an activist instead of a representative. Only 3 years and 10 months left of Jenn antics. Stock up on the popcorn.
On the Monday Bloomington Agenda:
Non-union city employees are heading for the door too. The policy of eliminating pension spiking applies to them unless they notify the City of plans to retire by October 31, 2019 and actually leave by April 30, 2020.
The City is now disclosing pension spiking because it is the law. This one is for Monday night:
Sue gets another $6,430 the first year and it will cost you $97,716!
Listing the North Main Property with Coldwell Banker is back on the agenda. Keep in mind the City sunk $1,400,000 into this property. IWU is adding two other parcels to the listing. Unless it sells for a lot more than Bloomington invested, taxpayers lose.
Tim Gleason will vet projects and pass those deemed worthy to the Council. (Sounds like FOIA’s will be needed to see what is unworthy)
The City is still pretending to know what’s best:
The Coldwell Banker contract runs for 18 months with a possible 6 month extension. Evidently nobody is expecting a fast sale. Most of the other states are experiencing huge economic gains. Not Illinois and certainly not Bloomington-Normal.
What do they have in common? Thinking . . thinking . . .thinking . . .
The McLean County Regional Planning Commission is getting $54,000 to continue “planning” for Bloomington. These are the same people who got a very low response rate to Bring It On Bloomington but promoted the results anyway. Without MCRPC there wouldn’t be any barely used bike lanes.
