Mayor Lori Lightfoot sent a letter to Texas Governor Greg Abbott ‘beseeching’ him to stop sending illegal immigrants to Chicago.

The letter comes as Abbott is prepared to send even more to the Windy City on Monday.

It’s part of the border state governor’s attempts to raise awareness of the border crisis while calling out so-called ‘sanctuary cities’ that have suggested they would welcome the illegal immigrants with open arms.

Lightfoot referred to Abbott’s actions as “inhumane and dangerous” while suggesting Chicago is a welcoming city with her main point of contention being the lack of coordination from Texas officials.

Because Texas gets the courtesy of coordination as illegal aliens rush the border under the Biden administration?

Lightfoot maintains that Chicago has had to care for roughly 8,000 illegal aliens since Texas started busing them to blue cities but has “no more shelters, spaces, or resources” to manage another group.

Lori Lightfoot Begs Greg Abbott to Stop Sending Illegal Aliens

As per usual with Democrats, Lightfoot is directing her anger at the wrong individual. If she really cared about the well-being of illegal immigrants and the people in her city, she’d have sent a letter to President Biden requesting he do something about the influx at the border.

Instead, she hilariously begs Abbott to stop asking her city to shoulder a small fraction of the problem. And she falsely accuses Abbott of creating the humanitarian crisis that in reality was created by Biden.

“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 the humanitarian crisis you have created,” Lightfoot wrote.

“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 inviable and misleading choice.”

On that, we can agree. Helping anybody go to a garbage city with a skyrocketing murder rate run by liberals does seem rather cruel. The illegal aliens might be better off back in their home country.

Lightfoot: We’ll Always Accept Illegal Immigrants  – Until We Actually Have To

It’s impossible to overstate just how much of a hypocrite Lori Lightfoot is when it comes to illegal immigrants in her city. She has consistently bragged about Chicago’s ‘sanctuary city’ status.

“We are a city that is a sanctuary city. We have immigrants from all over the world who call Chicago their home,” she has previously said.

“They’ll continue to do that, and we’re going to continue to make sure that this is truly a welcoming community for those immigrants and we want them to come to the city of Chicago.”

About a year later Lightfoot contended: “We will never, ever, ever, retreat from the fact that we are a welcoming sanctuary city, and we stand with our immigrant and refugee communities.”

Never, ever, ever came and went awfully fast.

Abbott, as reported by The Political Insider, began bussing illegal immigrants to Chicago in September of last year and challenged Lightfoot to walk the walk.

“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,” Abbott said in a statement.

“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.”

As with many Democrat politicians, they can talk a good game to get the votes, but they can’t deliver when it’s actually necessary.

Lightfoot recently became the first Chicago mayor in 40 years to lose re-election. She leaves the office in two weeks.
