Chicago’s failed Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot has begged Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott to stop sending migrants to her crumbling city.
Lightfoot told Abbott that Chicago has no more room or money to care for them.
In a letter Sunday, the outgoing mayor warned Abbott that his policy of busing migrants to so-called “sanctuary cities” has resulted in Chicago reaching a “critical tipping point.”
“Chicago is a Welcoming City and we collaborate with County, State, and community partners to rise to this challenge, but your lack of consideration or coordination in an attempt to cause chaos and score political points has resulted in a critical tipping point in our ability to receive individuals and families in a safe, orderly, and dignified way.
“But I beseech you anyway: treat these individuals with the respect and dignity that they deserve.
“To tell them to go to Chicago or to inhumanely bus them here is an enviable and misleading choice.
“We simply have no more shelters, spaces, or resources to accommodate an increase of individuals at this level.
“I know by your actions that you either do not see or do not care about the trauma these migrants have already faced and continue to suffer under that humanitarian crisis you have created.
“Nearly all the migrants have been in dire need of food, water, and clothing and many needed extensive medical care.
“Some of the individuals you placed on buses were women in active labor, and some were victims of sexual assault.
“None of these urgent needs were addressed in Texas,” Lightfoot claims.
“Instead, these individuals and families were packed onto buses and shipped across the country like freight without regard to their personal circumstances.
“Governor Abbott, this is not a state v. state or city v. city problem.
“The immigration crisis is a national challenge that requires national collaboration.
“For the good of our country and the individuals who are seeking safety in refuge, let’s work together to find a real solution.
“And that real solution will never be the unilateral bussing of migrants to cities like Chicago.”
