Afternoon Briefing: You could pay for Wheaton’s highest-priced mansion in cryptocurrency

Good afternoon, Chicago.

Mayor Brandon Johnson’s administration announced today that 35 migrants will be evicted from Chicago’s migrant shelter system this weekend while scores of others will receive new exemptions allowing them to stay, the latest update in his handling of a 60-day shelter limit policy that has seen months of delays and backlash.

The group of 35 will be the first migrants required to leave the shelters, after a week of uncertainty over whether the Johnson administration would move ahead with limited evictions this Saturday amid outcry from a group of aldermen opposed to the policy.
