According to The Center Square, Illinois' biggest city Chicago has been flooded with migrants and one of the solutions to this problem is to have the smaller cities in the state open up their doors to these migrants. In the article, they say...

This is obviously such a huge crisis not only in Illinois but in the country as a whole. Is the right way to solve this problem to have every small city in your state welcome groups of people? Maybe, in the short term that would help the overcrowding in Chicago. But is it a long-term solution? No, we all know that isn't a sustainable long-term solution. This is one of those problems that shouldn't be solved at the state level, the federal government, the President, and Congress should be developing a plan on what to do with all of these people who have been flooding into the cities of New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and so on. Would you support your small town in Illinois volunteering to take on some of these migrants?
