Chicago welcomes Texas migrants, then sends them to Burr Ridge
BURR RIDGE, Ill. — WGN Investigates has learned several dozen of the migrants Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent to Chicago have now been relocated to a hotel in the suburbs without advance warning to the local mayor.
“I am concerned neither the village administrator nor I were told about this,” Burr Ridge Mayor Gary Grasso told WGN. “We want to know: Why Burr Ridge?”
The answer to that seems obvious enough to me, but no way in hell WGN’s article is gonna touch it. So Ace helps out the more obtuse of us with a handy-dandy explainer.
Here, let me take a wild stab in the dark at that:
The 5 largest ethnic groups in Burr Ridge, IL are White (Non-Hispanic) (75.5%), Asian (Non-Hispanic) (14.7%), White (Hispanic) (3.43%), Two+ (Non-Hispanic) (2.78%), and Other (Hispanic) (1.16%).
Is Burr Ridge IL wealthy?Burr Ridge (formerly Harvester) is a village in Cook and DuPage counties in the U.S. state of Illinois. A suburb of Chicago, it is among the wealthiest towns in Illinois and is locally known for its large, elegant mansions and luxury lifestyles. Per the 2020 census, the population was 11,192.
This is all of you right now: “Oh my God Ace your brain is just so throbbing and pulsey with Hot Facts…”
Heh. Yep, I for one stand in slackjawed awe of ye, buddy. Back to the WGN report.
Just days ago, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted Abbott for treating the migrants like “cargo” and not providing her with advance notice they were arriving.
“My frustration comes from the actions of the governor of Texas,” Lightfoot said Sunday, when the first bus load of 50 migrants arrived. “There could be a level of coordination and cooperation, but he chooses to do none of those things and instead tries to send human beings — not cargo, not freight — human beings across the country to an uncertain destination.”
What, you mean like Obama and Biden did/are doing, quietly sneaking busloads of illegals in the dead of night to small communities all across the nation, with neither advance notice nor disclosure? For that matter, what the hell is so damned “uncertain” about self-proclaimed “sanctuary” destinations such as your own Murder Central, Mordor On The Potomac, and NYFC, anyway?
On Wednesday, a group of 75 more migrants arrived in Chicago from Texas.
Awww, my heart truly bleeds for poor put-upon Chicago. I suspect those small-town Texans that have borne the brunt of the onslaught of literally millions of inbound illegals for years now might have a thing or two to say to Mxzzs Lightfoot about the way she squeals like a stuck pig over what amounts to the merest drop in the very large bucket of misery intentionally inflicted on their communities by posturing DemonRat politicians.
