Pro-Sanctuary City Mayor Lori Lightfoot Begs Texas One Last Time To Stop Sending Illegal Aliens | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Tim Meads.

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) is begging Texas Governor Greg Abbott to not send any more illegal aliens to the Windy City - despite the fact that just two years ago she signed measures "strengthening" Chicago's status as a sanctuary city.

    On Sunday, the outgoing mayor sent Abbott a letter, imploring him to make Texas carry the burden of the thousands upon thousands of illegal aliens flooding the border. According to the mayor, the Texas governor is going to begin re-sending illegal immigrants via bus starting Monday to Chicago.

    "Since we began responding to the arrival of migrants sent by your delegation in August 2022, we have shouldered the responsibility of caring for more than 8,000 men, women, and children with no resources of their own," she said in the letter. "That number continues to grow."

    In reality, Lightfoot shouldn't be surprised Texas sent them her way. She practically asked for these individuals to come to Chicago on multiple occasions. For example, in 2019, she tweeted, "Yes, Chicago must be a sanctuary city.

    Now, she says there is no more room in her city.

    "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," she said in the letter. "We simply have no more shelters, spaces, or resources to accommodate an increase of individuals at this level, with little coordination or care, that does not pose a risk to them or others."

    The letter came just hours after Texas authorities started a manhunt for a suspected illegal alien who allegedly killed five individuals -including an eight-year-old child - in a spray of gunfire Friday night. Texas, like other border states, has been dealing with the crisis of illegal immigration for years, and that mass shooting is just the latest ramification.

    What is Lightfoot's solution to this mess? Well, she thinks that it can be solved through more federal funding and "policy changes." Like her Democratic colleagues in New York City dealing with the same problem, one can only assume that means amnesty.

    Of course, this chaos will never end until the border is sealed and thousands of illegal aliens are deported. Don't count on Lightfoot to send President Joe Biden a letter demanding those sorts of policies though. It seems she'd rather accuse GOP colleagues of being callous and cruel, even though for years she told illegal immigrants from around the globe that they could find sanctuary under her watch.

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.
