(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) Chicago Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot proudly and publicly welcomed illegal immigrants to her sanctuary city with a warm embrace, and then quickly gave them the cold shoulder and deported them to another town.
Lightfoot tried to quietly relocate the migrants who had arrived from Texas, shipping them to a hotel in the village of Burr Ridge, reported WGN. The leftist mayor’s scheme caught the town by surprise.
“I am concerned neither the village administrator nor I were told about this,” Burr Ridge Mayor Gary Grasso told WGN. He wanted to know, “Why Burr Ridge?”
“The Left has painted any governor or mayor who doesn’t welcome illegal immigrants as ‘racist,'” noted Headline Health. “Now one of the Left’s own icons who checks every box — female, lesbian, black, woke — has been caught busing illegal aliens out of her jurisdiction.”
Lightfoot isn’t alone with her blatant hypocrisy. Illinois Democrat Gov. JB Pritzker praised the Chicago mayor’s efforts, while blaming Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for sharing the illegal immigration burden with a leftist city that had assured it offered immigrants a sanctuary.
“What the governor of Texas is doing is disgusting and it needs to stop,” Pritzker said, according to WGN.
“It shouldn’t be that the governor of Texas is taking these people and treating them like cattle, treating them like property, putting them on busses and sending them wherever he wants to send them.”
That type of behavior is only approved for leftists like Lightfoot. She called Abbott’s bussing policy, which Lightfoot mirrored by bussing migrants out of her city, “racist and xenophobic.”
Republican Darren Bailey, a candidate for Illinois governor, blasted Pritzker’s defense.
“The failures lie with J.B. Pritzker and his pal Joe Biden who has created a crisis at the border,” Baily said.
“Pritzker should demand that Biden secure the border and in the meantime, provide the resources to care for these people. If J.B. won’t do that, he should put them in one of his Hyatt’s on his own dime.”
