According to Chicago’s first black, gay, female Mayor-Elect Lori Lightfoot, she would welcome shipments of illegals if the Trump Administration were to send them to the Windy City per Breitbart News.
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Lightfoot was asked if she agreed with outgoing Mayor Rham Emanuel’s remarks that illegals were welcome in Chicago, she replied with “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.
Lightfoot also added that Democrats need to stop getting so worked up about things President Trump says.
“What I’m saying is I don’t think we should take the bait every time the president puts out a provocative tweet. What I think we need to do is make sure that we are being very clear and speaking our values,” Lightfoot said.
She continued: “We are a city that is a sanctuary city. We have immigrants from all over the world who call Chicago their home. They’ll continue to do that, and we’re going to continue to make sure that this is truly a welcoming community for those immigrants, and we want them to come to the city of Chicago,” the newly elected mayor concluded.
So there you have it, another Mayor has said they will house the Illegal Immigrants, more power to them.
