Abbott Announces The Addition Of Another Democrat City To The List Of Bus Trip Destinations For Illegals

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) has announced that he is now bussing illegal immigrants to Chicago, Illinois, in addition to New York City and Washington, D.C.

While Abbott had already been sending illegal immigrants via bus from Texas to NYC and Washington, D.C., he has now added Chicago as another destination. The governor’s plan is an attempt to force leftists in Democrat-run cities to experience the strain of illegal immigration that they advocate for, and attempt to ignore the consequences of in border towns.

Abbott sent out a press release to announce the decision to send illegals to Chicago.

“President Biden’s inaction at our southern border continues putting the lives of Texans—and Americans—at risk and is overwhelming our communities,” the governor said in the press release. “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 [Lori] 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,” Abbott added.

The first bus full of illegal immigrants arrived in Washington, D.C., in April, while the first bus arrived in NYC in early August.

Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) has already requested deployment of the D.C. National Guard twice in response to the influx of illegals, but the Pentagon has refused her requests both times.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) responded to Abbott’s actions by accusing him of racism and attacking him as having no “shame or humanity.”

“As a city, we are doing everything we can to ensure these immigrants and their families can receive shelter, food, and most importantly protection,” a spokesperson for Lightfoot’s office said in a statement. “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,” the spokesperson claimed. “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.”
