Last Friday, September 22, another bus from Texas arrived carrying migrants. This was the 15th bus Governor Greg Abbott has sent to Los Angeles since mid-June. 

Recently, Texas border cities have been overwhelmed with migrants crossing the southern border. Governor Abbott sent more buses to help them out

One border city, Del Rio can’t handle the number of migrants since it is too much for this small city of 20,000. 

Then according to NBC News, President Joe Biden has sent 800 Active Duty Army personnel to assist these border cities as Arizona and California are seeing a surge of migrants cross the border. 

So Texas continues to bus migrants to sanctuary cities. 

But not everyone seems to agree.

According to Yahoo News, a spokesperson with the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights Jorge-Mario Cabrera said:

"It's one bus too many in such a short amount of time. But I could say the same for the [14] previous buses. It's completely unnecessary for Texas to do this."
"But it's important that we do our work to make sure that these migrants do not feel rejected one more time."

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

"One bus with migrants on board from Texas arrived around 9:35 AM PT today at Union Station. This is the fifteenth 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."

On this recent bus, there were 45 migrants consisting of 23 children and they were from Columbia, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela. 

According to CBS News, the bus arrived around 9:30 a.m. on Friday at Union Station. 

Do you think Los Angeles can continue to support migrants unlike other sanctuary cities that are getting overwhelmed?
