Illegal immigrants in Denver demand ‘culturally appropriate’ food, free lawyers at tent city

More than 100 illegal immigrants in Denver are refusing to leave a tent city unless the city meets their demands.

The migrants, living in a camp near train tracks and under a bridge, have stipulated more than a dozen conditions under which they will agree to move into city-funded shelters.


However, the migrants have put forward 13 demands, emphasizing the need for more support. Among their requests, as detailed by 9News, is the provision of fresh, culturally relevant ingredients that would let them prepare their own meals. They also want assistance with employment, complimentary legal advice for immigration proceedings, and guarantees against family separation or mistreatment by shelter staff.

Other requests include unlimited shower access, medical professional visits and transportation for all children to and from school until school finishes in three weeks.
