After an environmental report was released Friday evening stated that soil at the proposed migrant shelter site at 38th and California is contaminated, the city of Chicago came to their senses and postponed construction today.

City officials claimed that the contaminated soil with high levels of mercury was disposed of in the report, but the land could still be filled with toxic material. The city will now hold off construction for the illegal immigrants until the land is reviewed by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.

A special thank you has to be given to the commenters here on NewsBreak because they addressed this concern a couple of days ago.

"Not a smart move, now that will give them reason to sue us!!!"

"Contaminated kickbacks."

"Migrants now have cause to sue the city..."
