Community leaders are getting ready to expand an emergency shelter for migrants in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood.

“This is some of the stuff that they’ve been working on,” Ald. Byron Sigcho Lopez, of the city’s 25th Ward, as he showed NBC Chicago around the new space to house migrants arriving from Texas.

The alderman said the community came together to turn the warehouse into a makeshift shelter. The second floor is slated to open as a shelter on Monday.
