The mayor of Chicago says buses full of illegal immigrants coming from Texas have the potential to create chaos in her city. Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who says he is sending undocumented immigrants to sanctuary cities like Chicago, New York, and Washington, DC until the federal government secures the border. Lightfoot described Abbott's actions as racist, xenophobic and unpatriotic.

While blasting Abbott, Lightfoot said she would like to see an orderly process that's coordinated by the federal government.

Abbott says he's sending the migrants to "sanctuary cities" that say they will welcome immigrants, but then complain when they arrive. The governor blames the Biden Administration for a crisis on the border.
