Texas Governor Greg Abbott is shipping busloads of migrants to Chicago.
"President Biden’s inaction at our southern border continues putting the lives of Texans—and Americans—at risk and is overwhelming our communities," Governor 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," Abbott added.
"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," the Texas governor added.
A father on the bus, who arrived with his wife and two small children from Venezuela, said they were hoping to find a better life after their inhumane journey to get to the United States.
"We just left Venezuela, went to Colombia, going through the jungle in Panama," William Mijares said. "We were not treated like humans. We were treated like the worst kind of people in the world and we don’t understand why, but that’s the way they consider us."
The Chicago Mayor’s Office welcomed the migrants, adding, "This is not new; Chicago welcomes hundreds of migrants every year to our city and provides much-needed assistance."
