    Texas Dumps Dozens of Migrants to Another Blue Sanctuary City in Post-Election Bus Campaign

    Published on

    Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has kept moving migrants from Texas to other northern locations after easily winning reelection last week.

    In Philadelphia, a “sanctuary city,” 28 immigrants recently arrived on a bus on Wednesday morning. However, Abbott’s plan has not pleased the city’s officials.

    The Texas immigration busing policy will now include Philadelphia in addition to New York City, Washington, D.C., and Chicago, Abbott’s office said in a news release on Tuesday.

    According to a press release, the action is “part of the Governor’s unprecedented response to President Biden’s open border policies overwhelming border communities in Texas.”

    According to the statement, “Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has long-celebrated and fought for sanctuary city status, making the city an ideal addition to Texas’ list of drop-off locations.”

    So, according to the online news source The Texas Tribune, a bus unloaded 28 immigrants in Philadelphia on Wednesday morning, most of whom were from Colombia, the Dominican Republic, and Cuba.

    Jim Kenney, the mayor of Philadelphia, described Abbott’s action as “cruel and racist” on Wednesday.

    According to the Tribune, Kenney stated, “It is sad and outrageous that Gov. Abbott and his administration continue to implement their cruel and racist policies using immigrant families — including children — as pawns to shamelessly push their warped political agenda.”

    “Even if they were nice enough to, like, let us know so we could get ready, but they don’t even do that. So, I guess they’re having fun and enjoying playing with people’s lives,” Kenney reportedly added, according to a report from WCAU-TV.

    One Step Away, a local “street newspaper,” said in 2017 that Philadelphia is a “sanctuary city” that asserts to be a haven for immigrants.

    “Philadelphia is a city of immigrants. America was founded on the belief that everyone is created equal — and every person means every person, no exceptions. Philadelphia treats immigrants as we would any other resident under our criminal justice system,” according to the city’s Office of Immigrant Affairs.

    According to WCAU, the individuals who arrived in Philadelphia had requested asylum and underwent border inspections in Texas before boarding a bus for the City of Brotherly Love.

    In addition, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that most of those who arrived were not going to be staying in Philadelphia permanently. (The Inquirer reported the number on the bus as 38 while other outlets reported 28. The reason for the discrepancy between that report and others was not clear.)

    Most of the immigrants had called family members around the Northeast to make arrangements to either meet in Philadelphia or take the bus farther north to other locations, the newspaper reported.

    Meanwhile, Abbott has continued to defend the Texas initiative to transport immigrants out of the state as a response to the Biden administration’s failures to alleviate the pressure that Texas is facing from illegal immigration at the border. CONTINUE READING…
