Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson criticized Texas Governor Greg Abbott for sending migrants to Chicago, comparing Abbott’s actions to clinging to the vestiges of the Confederacy.

Johnson emphasized the need for a coordinated response to the humanitarian crisis and accused Abbott of sowing chaos by relocating migrants without coordination with local officials.

Abbott’s “Operation Lone Star” aims to address gaps in border security, but Johnson and other mayors have expressed concerns about the strain on local resources caused by the influx of migrants. (Trending: Obama Judge Issues Shock Ruling Against Democrats)

Mayor Johnson said, “But we cannot have a governor who decides that he’s going to cling to the vestiges of [Confederate President] Jefferson Davis, when we should be pulling to the hopes and aspirations that were left by [black abolitionist] Frederick Douglass.”

“We have to have a coordinated response to this humanitarian crisis. We cannot allow chaos to dictate and to divide this country,” he continued.

Gov. Abbott’s office said, “Operation Lone Star continues to fill the dangerous gaps created by the Biden Administration’s refusal to secure the border.”

“This is unsustainable. None of our local economies are positioned to be able to carry on such a mission. And what we have attempted to do is to create structure and some coordination around this humanitarian crisis,” said Mayor Johnson.

“This is certainly a matter of — not just of our national security, but it’s the type of chaos that this governor is committed to administering,” added the Chicago mayor.
