Texas Governor Greg Abbott has sent more than 300 buses from the southern border to northern sanctuary cities —and it sounds like he’s adding a new destination to the list: Philadelphia.
According to a Fox News report, the first migrant bus to Philadelphia will arrive this week from the southern border.
A spokesperson for Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney told Fox News Digital that “the situation is still fluid” and the exact timing of the potential bus trip is unclear.
“This information was relayed to us from a community partner organization as Texas officials have not coordinated with the city,” the spokesperson said. “We do not have an exact location of where the bus will disembark, nor do we have any specific information about those on board, nor do we know if other buses are planned.”
More than 2.3 million migrant encounters were logged at the southern border in fiscal year 2022 —and Abbott has had enough.
“As [President Joe] Biden does nothing, Texas will continue taking unprecedented action to relieve our overwhelmed border communities & secure the border,” Abbott tweeted this past week.
