Denver migrants have a list of 13 DEMANDS before they’ll leave protest encampment

America has become a nation in which you can brazenly break the law, issue a list of demands, and negotiate your willingness to comply in the future.

Blatantly antisemitic pro-Palestinian protestors who pitched tents, harassed Jewish students, disrupted classes, and defaced monuments on university campuses across the nation, have been issuing ludicrous demands to those they have maligned.

Now, illegal migrants in Denver, Colorado, have sent a list of 13 demands to Democratic Mayor Mike Johnston, claiming they must be met before they will agree to leave the tents they’ve erected near train tracks and under a bridge and move into taxpayer-funded shelters.

In terms that smack of Socialist revolutionaries, V Reeves, a migrant advocate, informed Fox 31, “The camp as a collective came up with a list of demands.”

On the unvetted illegals’ list are free, “fresh, culturally appropriate ingredients” for their meals; “connection to employment support”; “a free immigration lawyer”; and “a meeting with the Mayor.”

The demands “came after a petition by city officials to move people from an encampment near train tracks and under a bridge to indoor shelters funded by the city,” according to Fox 31.

“The migrants have been lobbied by Denver Human Services to get off the street and into shelters — an offer that remains, according to city officials,” the outlet explains. “But they are holding out and said the city has reneged on its deal with them, while the city maintains it will continue to offer services to migrants that choose shelter over encampments.”

Rather than meet the collective’s demands, the city “sent buses to take people over without presenting that document and without having any kind of signature for accountability,” Reeves said.

Jon Ewing, with Denver Human Services, said the city has been trying to persuade the illegal migrants to “come inside.”

“We’ve been offering time and shelter, basically just trying to get families to leave that camp and come inside,” he said.

Inside, there are perks, he noted. The shelter, Ewing said, comes “with three square meals a day.”

“You can cook your own if you like to,” he added.

The offer was a nod to one of the migrants’ biggest gripes.

“There have been so many complaints about the food being spoiled or not being enough and malnutrition amongst children,” Reeves said.

Not only isn’t the food to their liking, but they haven’t been placed on a work permit path like the migrants in the shelters.

“They’re not receiving any kind of official housing or immigration document support, which is incredibly necessary for them to be able to navigate the bureaucracy around these systems,” Reeves said.

Ewing assured the migrants that the city wants to provide them with a path “to success.”

“What do you qualify for? What do you not qualify for? What might be something that is a feasible path for you to success that is not staying on the streets of Denver?” Ewing said.

“We try to compromise. We try to figure something out,” he insisted. “You know, at the end of the day, what we do not want is families on the streets of Denver.”

According to Fox 31, the 13 demands are:

  1. Migrants will cook their own food with fresh, culturally appropriate ingredients provided by the City instead of premade meals – rice, chicken, flour, oil, butter, tomatoes, onions, etc… Also people will not be punished for bringing in & eating outside food.
  2. Shower access will be available without time limits & can be accessed whenever – we are not in the military, we’re civilians.
  3. Medical professional visits will happen regularly & referrals/connections for specialty care will be made as needed.
  4. All will receive the same housing support that has been offered to others. They cannot kick people out in 30 days without something stable established.
  5. There needs to be a clear, just process before exiting someone for any reason – including verbal, written & final warnings.
  6. All shelter residents will receive connection to employment support, including work permit applications for those who qualify.
  7. Consultations for each person/family with a free immigration lawyer must be arranged to discuss/progress their cases, & then the City will provide on-going legal support in the form of immigration document clinics & including transportation to relevant court dates.
  8. The City will provide privacy for families/individuals within the shelter.
  9. No more verbal or physical or mental abuse will be permitted from the staff, including no sheriff sleeping inside & monitoring 24/7 – we are not criminals & won’t be treated as such.
  10. Transportation for all children to & from their schools will be provided until they finish in 3 weeks.
  11. No separating families, regardless of if family members have children or not. The camp will stay together.
  12. The City must schedule a meeting with the Mayor & those directly involved in running the Newcomer program ASAP to discuss further improvements & ways to support migrants.
  13. The City must provide all residents with a document signed by a City official in English & Spanish with all of these demands that includes a number to call to report mistreatment

“The city continues to bring buses to the encampment for any migrants choosing to leave the encampment and go to a congregate shelter or hotel,” the outlet reports.
