Chicago’s Mayor Lightfoot Promises Illegal Immigrants Bussed from Texas to Receive Shelter and Food, But Sends Them Instead to Nearby Town Without Informing the Mayor
The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced earlier this month that he had bussed migrants from Texas to Chicago.
“First Texas bus of migrants has arrived in Chicago,” Abbott announced on Twitter.
“Biden’s inaction at our border puts Texans at risk & is overwhelming our communities. We’ll continue bussing migrants to sanctuary cities like NYC, DC, & now Chicago until the federal gov’t does its job & secures the border,” he added.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office framed the busing as ‘racist’ and called Abbott inhumane. She promised a welcoming experience for the illegal migrants.
“As a city, we are doing everything we can to ensure these immigrants and their families can receive shelter, food, and most importantly protection,” Lightfoot said in a press release.
“This is not new; Chicago welcomes hundreds of migrants every year to our city and provides much-needed assistance. Unfortunately, Texas Governor Greg Abbott is without any shame or humanity. But ever since he put these racist practices of expulsion in place, we have been working with our community partners to ready the city to receive these individuals,” she added.
Now, several local news outlets are reporting that Mayor Lightfoot bused illegal immigrants from Texas last week to the suburb of Burr Ridge.
Burr Ridge, a suburb of Chicago, is among the wealthiest towns in Illinois and is locally known for its large, elegant mansions and luxury lifestyles.
The level of hypocrisy is pretty unreal.
WGN Investigates has learned several dozen of the migrants Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent to Chicago have now been relocated to a hotel in the suburbs without advance warning to the local mayor.
“I am concerned neither the village administrator nor I were told about this,” Burr Ridge Mayor Gary Grasso told WGN. “We want to know: Why Burr Ridge?”
Just days ago, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted Abbott for treating the migrants like “cargo” and not providing her with advance notice they were arriving.
“My frustration comes from the actions of the governor of Texas,” Lightfoot said Sunday, when the first bus load of 50 migrants arrived. “There could be a level of coordination and cooperation, but he chooses to do none of those things and instead tries to send human beings — not cargo, not freight — human beings across the country to an uncertain destination.”
