    Texas flew more than 120 illegal migrants up to Chicago this week, the first time Texas has sent a plane full of migrants to the city.

    The flight left from the border city of El Paso and arrived at Chicago O'Hare International Airport on Tuesday.

    The plane was chartered by the Texas Department of Emergency Management, a Chicago city spokesperson said Wednesday.

    After the flight landed, airport police got a call about the migrants shortly after 7 p.m., the city spokesperson said. Two people on the flight took an Uber away from the area before police could get there.

    Chicago has been scrambling to respond to a migrant crisis for months now.

    More than 26,000 migrants have arrived in the country's third-largest city since last year. Nearly 1,200 migrants are still camping out at O'Hare Airport and various police stations.

    Chicago has also reached deep into its pockets to build huge winterized tents to shelter thousands of migrants through the city's freezing winter months. The contract for the project is $29.3 million.

    The move by Texas comes after Chicago cracked down on buses arriving with migrants from Texas. Bus drivers started dropping migrants off in nearby cities to avoid penalties like fines and towing for unloading migrants at the wrong places or without the right paperwork.

    "Sanctuary city Chicago started obstructing and targeting our busing mission. Texas will now expand our operation to include flights to Chicago. Until Biden steps up to secure the border, we will continue to provide overwhelmed Texas border towns with much-needed relief," Abbott said.

    Mayor Brandon Johnson accused the Texas governor of "lawlessness."

    "Clearly the governor is trying to circumvent law. And this is lawlessness that he is engaged in right now," Johnson said Wednesday.

    Chicago City Council member Byron Sigcho-Lopez called the move by Texas a "political stunt that goes, not only short in addressing the issue, but further creates more tensions, more danger and more issues in the city."

    Since last year, Texas' Republican Governor Greg Abbott has bused more than 80,000 migrants to cities run by Democrats, including Chicago, in an effort to relieve El Paso and other overwhelmed areas on the border.

    Meanwhile, record numbers of migrants are illegally crossing the border.

    Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is currently dealing with more than 10,000 migrant encounters each day.

    In October, border authorities encountered a total of 240,988 migrants at the border, according to CBP, making it the highest October on record.

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.

  Donald J. Trump
  Joseph R. Biden
  Leftist controlled Congress for the last 4 years.
