Sanctuary city Chicago has taken in scores of migrants transferred there by the state of Texas.
The city sent a statement on Wednesday announcing that 36 more migrants had landed in Chicago. They were given a safe place to stay and helped with their basic necessities right away. The city also said that they are dedicated to aiding each family and person by offering human services, respect, and dignity.
More than 3,700 Texans seeking asylum have allegedly taken buses to Chicago.
In an attempt to address the growing problem at the state's southern border, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has sent thousands of migrants to cities held by the Democratic Party.
As of today, Texas has bused over 13,500 migrants to sanctuary cities:
➡️ Almost 8,400 to D.C.
➡️ Over 3,800 to NYC
➡️ Over 1,200 to Chicago
➡️ Almost 100 to Philadelphia
Texas is doing whatever it takes to provide relief to our overwhelmed border communities.
