On Sunday, Lightfoot again lambasted Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for “manufacturing a human crisis” by sending immigrants to the city with no prior communication as to their needs.
Chicago welcomed another 50 immigrants bused from Texas on Sunday as city officials launched a website to allow residents to donate supplies and money to help the new arrivals.
The group arrived around 4 p.m. Sunday and is made up mostly of families, Lightfoot told reporters at a news conference. They join the 79 immigrants that arrived to the city Wednesday.
Both groups are part of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s plan to send people arriving at the southern border into Democrat-led cities. Under Abbott, a Republican, Texas has spent $12 million to send migrants from Texas to East Coast cities, according to the Texas Tribune.
