Abbott has sent migrants from the southern U.S. border to Washington, D.C. , New York and now Chicago to relieve his border state from economic burden of record immigration.
Abbott’s effort is also a political power move to try to show that U.S. immigration policy, border overflow, is a national, not regional, issue.
Lightfoot earlier criticized Abbott having commissioned the busing, saying it was a “stain on the nation.”
Late this week she said: “I’m happy to take and drain Texas of all of its residents,” Lightfoot said . “I wouldn’t want to live in a state with a governor like that. … And we’ll rent the buses next time to bring ‘em here.”
