According to Abbott, the migrants were dropped off in the heart of Denver, while in Philadelphia, more people are seeking refuge.
Texan Republican Governor Greg Abbott announced Thursday that a busload of migrants had landed in Denver.
In a press release, Abbott stated that the migrants had been transported from Texas to Denver and then dropped off in the city’s central business district.
“President Biden’s reckless open border policies, such as his mass catch and release without court dates or any way to track them, should not force Texas’ overwhelmed and overrun border communities to bear the flood of illegal immigration,” Abbott stated in the release. Texas will keep busing migrants to self-declared sanctuary cities like Denver until the president and his administration step up and perform their constitutional duty to protect the border.
New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia are just some of the locations Abbott has bused migrants to.
According to Philadelphia authorities, 34 asylum seekers arrived by bus from Texas on Wednesday, and another 46 migrants arrived on Thursday.
According to the latest information, the migrants come from Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, and the Dominican Republic.
Since November, 23 buses full of migrants have arrived in Philadelphia.
Newly elected Mayor of Chicago Brandon Johnson signed an executive order creating the position of “deputy mayor for immigrant, migrant, and refugee rights.” Chicago is one of the cities receiving migrants being bused in from Texas.
