Mayor Laurie Lightfoot (D) has declared a state of emergency for the sanctuary city of Chicago, Illinois, due to the influx of illegal immigration from the US-Mexico border, saying the city has reached “breaking point” and is “overwhelmed.” .

Beginning in August 2022, Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) flew more than 8,000 passengers and illegal aliens to Chicago to help save his state’s taxpayers billions of dollars in social and economic costs associated with illegal immigration.

Title 42, which has been used for years to immediately deport illegal aliens arriving at the border, is one of the latest border inspections by the Biden administration.

As much as we sympathize with the significant challenges that border towns face and have faced for some time, Chicago does not have the infrastructure or resources to continue to treat migrants humanely.. (emphasis added)

According to Lightfoot, Chicago’s existing facilities and newly created facilities are “overcapacity” with cross-border commuters and illegal aliens, prompting the city to house newcomers in abandoned police stations and schools. Breitbart News.

“Hundreds of migrants are temporarily staying in police stations, waiting for suitable accommodation,” Lightfoot said. “This crisis is not only draining our city’s resources, but it’s very dangerous … unfortunately, we don’t think the buses will stop anytime soon.”

Lightfoot’s insistence that illegal immigration at the border be addressed by immediately allowing those released to work in the United States has sparked outrage among local Chicagoans.
