Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot urged Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to stop busing migrants to Chicago, calling the move “inhumane” and “dangerous.”
“Chicago is a welcoming city and we collaborate with county, state, and community partners to rise to this challenge, but your lack of consideration or coordination in an attempt to cause chaos and score political points has resulted in a critical tipping point in our ability to receive individuals and families in a safe, orderly, and dignified way,” Lightfoot wrote in the letter.
