There’s a gap about as wide as the Grand Canyon between what Democrats say and what they’re willing to actually do.
Now Lori Lightfoot is about to pull out her hair thanks to one clever Republican Governor.
And she has the dumbest complaint about his tactics.
More than two million illegal aliens are estimated to have entered the United States this year.
The onslaught since Joe Biden took office (and Kamala Harris took over as the failed “Border Czar”) is devastating border communities.
The busses are coming
Now Texas Governor Greg Abbott is delivering a small dose of reality to blue governors and mayors in the north.
He’s been teaming up with Arizona’s Republican Governor to bus illegals into big blue cities including Washington, D.C. and New York City.
Now Chicago has received its first delivery—and Mayor Lori Lightfoot is already melting down.
Somewhere around 80 to 100 people, including 20 to 30 small children were dropped off at Union Station.
Abbott sends Windy City Mayor in hysterics
“President Biden’s inaction at our southern border continues putting the lives of Texans—and Americans—at risk and is overwhelming our communities,” Abbott said. “To continue providing much-needed relief to our small, overrun border towns, Chicago will join fellow sanctuary cities Washington, D.C. and New York City as an additional drop-off location.”
“Mayor Lightfoot loves to tout the responsibility of her city to welcome all regardless of legal status, and I look forward to seeing this responsibility in action as these migrants receive resources from a sanctuary city with the capacity to serve them,” he added.
As expected, Chicago’s flakey leftist mayor’s response was both hysterical and illogical.
She had a spokesperson issue a statement claiming that Abbott—for some reason—is “without any shame or dignity.”
“As a city, we are doing everything we can to ensure these immigrants and their families can receive shelter, food, and most importantly protection. This is not new; Chicago welcome hundreds of migrants every year to our city and provides much-needed assistance,” the statement read. “Unfortunately, Texas Gov. 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.”
Democrats rolling out same tired response they have to everything
Naturally, the leftists didn’t bother to explain why it’s “racist” for Abbot to send illegal aliens to the people who claim to want them rather than leave poor border communities overburdened—as they already are—with an exponentially larger number of people pouring in and expecting a socialist paradise.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams also described busing illegals to his city as “horrific” even though every person on board volunteered to receive the free transportation.
The truth is that Democrats want to talk a big game while leaving Republican border state governors to deal with the mess they’ve created.
