After 50 more migrants were bused from Texas to Chicago over Labor Day weekend, Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot called into question Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s Christian faith.

At a Press Conference on Sunday (September 4), Lightfoot noted, “He professes to be a Christian,” before expressing her doubts, saying, “This is not the Christianity and the teachings of the Bible that I know. And I think religious leaders all across the country are standing up and denouncing exactly this.”

Lightfoot’s remarks came after a bus of about 50 Migrants reached the windy city.

Last week, after the first bus of migrants, reached Chicago, Abbott made the announcement in a speech lamenting Biden’s inaction.

“President Biden’s inaction at our southern border continues putting the lives of Texans — and Americans — at risk and is overwhelming our communities,” Abbott said.

Continuing his announcement that Chicago would be added to the list of Sanctuary cities, Abbott noted: “To continue providing much-needed relief to our small, overrun border towns, Chicago will join fellow sanctuary cities Washington, D.C. and New York City as an additional drop-off location. Mayor Lightfoot loves to tout the responsibility of her city to welcome all regardless of legal status, and I look forward to seeing this responsibility in action as these migrants receive resources from a sanctuary city with the capacity to serve them.”

In response to Lightfoot’s disparaging remarks about Abbott’s faith, a spokesperson for the Governor said, “attacking the Governor’s commitment to his faith is a pathetic political ploy to change the conversation away from Mayor Lightfoot’s unwillingness to uphold her city’s self-declared sanctuary status.”
