It is hilarious. Lightfoot and the rest of these idiots who are getting their fair share of illegal immigrants are now looking for a handout from the federal government.

Democrats and media outlets are suddenly alarmed that illegal migrants are turning sanctuary cities like Washington, New York and Chicago into “unofficial border towns.” Never mind the pain in actual border towns in Texas and Arizona since President Joe Biden opened the southern border — per Democrats’ wishes.

Migrants have transformed DC into “an unofficial border town,” a Washington Post story lamented last week, quoting an official from a group that helps newcomers there. The paper flags the “political gamesmanship” of Govs. Greg Abbott (R-Texas) and Gov. Doug Ducey (R-Ariz), who it says are busing “migrants as a political statement” about Team Biden’s border policies.

Meanwhile, Democratic Reps. Adriano Espaillat (NY), Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC), Jesús García (Ill.) and others are calling for $50 million in federal funding for “sanctuary cities” to cope with the new arrivals, while slamming Abbott and Ducey for “playing politics” with migrants’ lives.

How rich. Suddenly, when cities that end-run federal law and claim to want more migrants get sent a few thousand of them, their leaders pop up, blast the states sending them and demand millions in federal aid. Yet millions of illegal border-crossers have swamped border communities for 20 months, with silence from Dems and left-leaning media.
