Just a day ago, Los Angeles welcomed a bus of migrants to Union Station. This was the 14th bus from Texas. 

In a press release, Governor Greg Abbott has bussed over 500 migrants to the City as they continue to welcome migrants. On this bus were 40 migrants from El Salvador and Venezuela. Out of this group, 14 of the migrants were children. 

Governor Abbott recently stated he has bussed over 530 migrants since June 14.

In a press release, Deputy Mayor of Communications and Spokesperson for Mayor Karen Bass, Zach Siegel said

"One bus with migrants on board from Texas arrived around 9:10 AM PT today at Union Station. This is the fourteenth bus that has arrived. The City has continued to work with City Departments, the County, and a coalition of nonprofit organizations, in addition to our faith partners, to execute a plan set in place earlier this year. As we have before, when we became aware of the bus yesterday, we activated our plan."

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights or CHIRLA nonprofit welcomed the migrants who arrived. 

On X or formerly Twitter, CHIRLA posted:

“We focus on people, not drama or politics. Together, the city, county & nonprofits will continue to coordinate and support each other until our new neighbors feel they have an opportunity to start again.”

This past Tuesday, September 19, Governor Abbott said on X:

Biden’s open border policies continue to encourage illegal crossings.

A recent report published by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol said migrants are continuing the cross the southern border in large numbers. 

Texas will probably continue bussing migrants to Los Angeles and sanctuary cities. 

According to CBS News, Los Angeles City Council voted to investigate if Governor Abbott was doing anything illegal as he busses migrants to the City.

Do you think Governor Abbott is doing anything illegal?
