The wailing of Sanctuary City shitlibs is as sweet, sweet music to mine ears.
Texas sends buses of migrants to Chicago for first time, dropped off at train station
Chicago is the third Democrat-run city where Texas officials have sent
An estimated 80 to 100 people were on the buses, including 20 to 30 small children. Many of the migrants said they were from Venezuela.
Chicago is the latest city where migrants have been bused to from Texas, following New York City and Washington, D.C., all of which have Democrat mayors.
Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement that he looks forward to seeing Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot welcome the migrants since Chicago is a sanctuary city.
“President Biden’s inaction at our southern border continues putting the lives of Texans—and Americans—at risk and is overwhelming our communities,” Abbott said. “To continue providing much-needed relief to our small, overrun border towns, Chicago will join fellow sanctuary cities Washington, D.C. and New York City as an additional drop-off location. Mayor Lightfoot loves to tout the responsibility of her city to welcome all regardless of legal status, and I look forward to seeing this responsibility in action as these migrants receive resources from a sanctuary city with the capacity to serve them.”
A statement from Abbott’s office said that Chicago is being added as a “drop-off location” for future migrant buses in response to “President Biden’s open border policies overwhelming border communities in Texas.”
A spokesperson from Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office said in a statement that Abbott is “without any shame or humanity.”
Actually, I have to agree; it IS kinda inhumane when you think about it, sending those poor illegals to a murderous shitpit like Chicago.
“As a city, we are doing everything we can to ensure these immigrants and their families can receive shelter, food, and most importantly protection. This is not new; Chicago welcome hundreds of migrants every year to our city and provides much-needed assistance,” a spokesperson for Lightfoot’s office said. “Unfortunately, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is without any shame or humanity. But ever since he put these racist practices of expulsion in place, we have been working with our community partners to ready the city to receive these individuals.”
New York City Democrat Mayor Eric Adams, upon meeting the migrants on Aug. 7, said that the actions of Abbott are “horrific.”
After sending the migrants to New York, Abbott said that the area is an “ideal destination for these migrants.”
“In addition to Washington, D.C., New York City is the ideal destination for these migrants, who can receive the abundance of city services and housing that Mayor Eric Adams has boasted about within the sanctuary city,” said Abbott. “I hope he follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief.”
Annnnd bingo. Well said, Governor, and good on ya.
You preening, sanctimonious libtards love to talk all your “sanctuary” talk at the rest of us, but when forced to walk the walk yourselves for a change you nearly shit your pants in agony over the horror, the INJUSTICE!!! of having the merest pinch of your own shit thrown back into your pinched, smarmy faces.
After years and years of A) flatly refusing to maintain the security of our southern border, B) denying the very concept of the US even having a border at all, and C) blithely averting their eyes from the financial hardship, criminal predation, and general anarchy said refusal directly imposes on towns all along said border, Lefty asswipes now have the brass, the stones, the unmitigated fucking gall to whine like little bitches when the governor of one (1) state affected by their self-serving, unworkable policies and programs?
Word to Bowser, Adams, Lightfoot, and every other “sanctuary” city mayor: Eat a big bag of dicks, whydon’tcha. There’s a clear, simple, and highly valuable lesson to be learned here, if only you had the wit to pay heed.
Update! As always, liberalism is a luxury none but the most affluent society can afford to indulge for very long.
The surest sign that public policies are simply virtue signals is when the messages don’t cost anything. The easiest way to tell when that signal starts to fail is to watch politicians flounder as the costs start to rise and voters demand relief.
It was free—and meaningless—for progressive churches to post banners calling themselves “nuclear free zones” during the Reagan era. Their dwindling congregations loved it. It was free, after George Floyd’s murder, to post woke catechism signs on your front lawn, proclaiming “In this house, we believe: Black Lives Matter, women’s rights are human rights, no human is illegal” and so on. Maybe the neighbors gave you high-fives. And for years it has been free for deep-blue cities to proclaim themselves “sanctuaries” for illegal immigrants. That’s changing now that voters want some sanctuary for themselves.
Changes like this happen when voters realize the old virtue signals actually entail serious costs—and that they will have to pay them. That is exactly what’s happening in New York City and Washington D.C. now that Texas governor Greg Abbott is sending those cities a few busloads of illegal immigrants from his state.
These progressive bastions were silent when the Biden administration flew planeloads of illegal immigrants to suburban airports in the middle of the night. TV coverage was prohibited, and the arrivals were secretly dispersed. Abbott’s buses, by contrast, arrive downtown greeted by local TV crews. Now you can hear the politicians screech.
Abbott’s goal is to squeeze the vise tighter on those politicians, to force them to change course on national immigration policy and lessen the flood of immigrants into his state—or else pay the price in their home states.
Kinda tough to see how that’s anything but totally fair, but then I’m not a shitlib retard either.
The buses are a political stunt, of course, but a very shrewd one. Abbott is up for reelection, and he’s visibly showing his support for beleaguered Texas cities and counties. He’s putting his liberal Democratic opponent, Beto O’Rourke, in an awkward position. O’Rourke specializes in showy, high-profile gestures but has no plan to alleviate the migrant problem. Finally, Abbott hopes to force the hand of national Democrats, who don’t care one iota about the social, financial, and law-enforcement burdens facing his state, but do care about those immigrants arriving in Manhattan or D.C.
Lipson goes on to speculate that eventually, shitlibs will begin to pressure their national “leaders” to reconsider the program of intentionally swamping the nation with illegal aliens for purely political purposes. But having never in all my many years seen a single instance of a “liberal” admitting error and reversing course, on any level at all, I can’t honestly say I expect any such thing myself. Such an admission would require a humility and honesty not one of them possesses, in any degree whatsoever.
