Tow buses carrying migrants from the southern border arrived in Chicago on Wednesday night, marking the first time Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s busing campaign has reached the Windy City.
The buses carried 80 to 100 people, including 20 to 30 small children.
Abbott released a statement addressing Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
“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. “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.”
