Well, it doesn’t seem “sanctuary” Democrats actually appreciate migrants entering their cities.
Texas Gov. Abbott bussed many border jumpers to New York and D.C. And the liberal mayors lost their minds.
Abbott then sent a few buses to far-left Chicago. Its mayor decided to push her burden onto someone else.
From Fox News:
A group of over 100 migrants from the southern border were moved to an Illinois suburb after being welcomed in Chicago – an action that is reportedly frustrating local officials…
While Chicago is a sanctuary city and Cook County is a sanctuary county, the migrants at the Burr Ridge Hampton Inn are in DuPage County. The county’s sanctuary status is unclear. However, Burr Ridge Republican Mayor Garry Grasso previously said he would work to secure the border and “defund sanctuary cities,” according to WGN-TV.
How convenient. Chicago Mayor Lightfoot, like most Democrats, claims her city is a “sanctuary” to undocumented migrants.
Yet, when Texas sent her 300 migrants, she promptly sent them to an entirely different county.
Forcing other people to cover your problems? Sounds like the Democrats’ MO to me!
It’s pretty outrageous how Democrat mayors have been responding to Gov. Abbott’s program.
These are the leaders who supported Biden’s open border agenda. They’ve done nothing to urge Biden to secure our border.
They’ve spent years virtue signaling about “welcoming” outsiders into our country, even those who are ignoring our laws.
Yet the mayors of D.C., New York, and Chicago all expressed outrage that Abbott is sending them migrants.
The Texas governor invited these Democrats to visit the border and just see what is going on. As far as we know, none of them have responded to his offer.
It seems these Democrats didn’t mind when hundreds of thousands of migrants overran Texas border town.
Thanks to Joe, nearly 5 million migrants have invaded the U.S. since January 2021.
Democrats seemed to be turning a blind eye to all of it, comfortable that some other state would have to deal with it.
But when push comes to shove, Chicago’s mayor just passed the buck.
