Mayor Richard Irvin pushes for Emergency Ordinance

AURORA, Ill. (WLS) — The Aurora City Council passed an emergency ordinance Friday which will affect busloads of migrants sent to the suburb from the southern border.

The ordinance would require at least five days notice to the city for a bus planning to transport migrants to Aurora.

In addition, to get approval for the drop off to happen, anyone who is chartering a bus to the western suburb would be required to submit a detailed plan on how the migrants would be cared for, where they will live and how they will be fed.

Buses that arrive unannounced would be subject to fines and could also be impounded, similar to the ordinance recently passed in Chicago.
