Most Leftists reacted to President Trump’s threat to bus truck loads of illegal immigrants straight to sanctuary cities with hilariously hypocritical outrage. Suddenly the people who were insisting that illegal immigrants were the backbone of America’s economy were shrieking over having to actually live with them.
This was especially funny given that the Left idolizes President Obama, a man who literally did what Trump is thinking about doing with red states.
Chicago’s newly elected Leftist black lesbian (the black lesbian part is especially important to the Left), however, had a very different reaction. Lori Lightfoot told CNN “anchor” Anderson Cooper that her city intends to welcome with open arms as many illegal immigrants as Trump can send them.
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper asked Lightfoot if she agreed with outgoing Mayor Rham Emanuel that illegals are welcome in Chicago, to which she replied, “of course.”
“We have people who are routinely coming to this city. We have a whole infrastructure that’s built up to make sure that their rights are protected while the city of Chicago has, under the current administration, provided funding for various groups to help support asylum seekers and other people that are going through the immigration court system. I expect it will continue, if not expand upon, those kinds of resources,” the first-time elected official told CNN.
To be fair, Lightfoot also said that she didn’t think Trump’s threat was serious. She also urged her colleagues not to fly off the handle whenever Trump makes a provocative tweet.
Would that all Leftists were as level-headed and easy going as Chicago’s newly elected black lesbian (again, very important) mayor.
