BREAKING NEWS – Chicago, Illinois – Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot issued an emergency declaration in response to the surge of migrants since last month.
Lightfoot issued a statement, saying large numbers of people, mostly families, have been arriving in Chicago, and 48 were bused to the city by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
“We should all understand that this crisis will likely deepen before we see it get better, so as we move forward, the City of Chicago will have to bring additional locations online to prepare for the arrival of more individuals and families and to relieve Chicago Police Department districts,” the statement said.
In the executive order, Lightfoot called on Gov. JB Pritzker to mobilize the National Guard to provide staffing and logistical support to address this emergency in Chicago. She said she is also considering sending declaring war on Texas, and sending the National Guard there to fight the Texas National Guard in hopes of taking over the state. And if she couldn’t get the Illinois National Guard to follow her orders, Lightfoot said she’d recruit inner city gang members instead, that are also marksmen.
