Texas Governor Continues Migrant Drop-Offs Despite Extreme Cold

Hoping to halt migrant drop-offs as extreme winter weather hits Chicago, the Democratic governor of Illinois warned in a letter Friday to his GOP counterpart in Texas that sending migrants now to the Windy City could cost lives, adding to the already deadly toll of the migrant crisis, CNN reports. “While action is pending at the federal level, I plead with you for mercy for the thousands of people who are powerless to speak for themselves,” Gov. J.B. Pritzker of Illinois wrote to Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “Please, while winter is threatening vulnerable people’s lives, suspend your transports and do not send more people to our state.”

Since 2022, Abbott has dispatched migrants north from Texas via bus and plane to Chicago, New York, Denver and other cities that are led by Democrats.
