It’s “racist,” Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot grandstands, for Texas to bus illegal migrants to her city.
Not that they don’t want them! she quickly clarifies. “Chicago welcomes hundreds of migrants every year to our city and provides much-needed assistance.”
So what’s racist about it? Could it be that Chicago, no matter how welcoming, finds itself overwhelmed by aid seekers encouraged by President Biden’s open border policy?
Which is exactly Gov. Greg Abbott’s point. Texas is busing a small fraction of the thousands of illegal migrants his state has to deal with every day. He’s giving Democratic mayors far from the border just a taste of the financial burden and responsibility he faces because of federal indifference.
If Lightfoot believes she’s so morally superior, she should be ready to welcome hundreds of thousands of migrants. Feed them, house them, give them jobs, make sure they’re not shot and killed in Chicago.
Anything else would be racist.
