Mayor Lori Lightfoot Declares Emergency as City Flooded with Illegal Immigrants

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot declared a state of emergency for her city, warning it has a hot “breaking point” and is “full” due to the flow of illegal immigrants from the United States-Mexico border.

As The Daily Fetched reported last week, Lightfoot begged Republican Texas Gov Greg Abbott to stop sending migrants from the southern border to her city.

As the Trump-era public health expulsion order, Title 42, ends this week, Lori Lightfoot is realising the massive surge in illegal immigrants is becoming unmanageable

“Chicago is a Welcoming City, and we continue to collaborate with County, State, and community partners to rise to this challenge,” Lightfoot wrote on Twitter regarding the letter.

“The lack of confederation or coordination in an attempt to cause chaos and score political points has resulted in a critical tipping point,” Lightfoot wrote on Twitter regarding the letter,” she added.

Meanwhile, the city of El Paso, Texas, is also expecting to absorb close to 10,000 border crossers on 11 May.

Title 42 was used to remove illegal aliens arriving at the border, but will now be removed under Joe Biden.

“… we’ve reached a breaking point … today we responded to the arrival of 48 more individuals and families that needed emergency support and shelter,” Lightfoot said.

“As sympathetic as we are to the significant challenges that border cities face now and have been facing for quite some time, Chicago simply does not have the infrastructure or resources to continue humanely providing for migrants.” [Emphasis added]

Watch

Chicago’s “pre-existing facilities and our newly created facilities are full,” forcing the city to house new arrivals in schools and police stations.

“Hundreds of migrants are temporarily staying in police stations while they await more appropriate housing,” Lightfoot said.

“This crisis is not only exhausting our city’s resources, but it’s flat-out dangerous … sadly we don’t expect the buses to stop anytime soon.”

Lightfoot’s insistence that the immigration problem should be fixed by giving immediate work permits to those released sparked anger from Chicago residents.

“It is a slap in the face that we as citizens of the United States of America do not have the resources and support, but you’re going to bring people who are not citizens here in our community, in our buildings that we pay taxes for that you took away from us,” one Chicago resident told local media last week.

“… at the end of the day, if Chicago can’t take care of its own, why should they take care of others? If the resources are given to others, why can’t the resources be given to us?” another Chicago resident asked.

Chicago’s Mayor-Elect, Brandon Johnson, is open to illegal immigration and even suggested that illegal aliens in the city should be allowed to vote.
