Texas Gov. Greg Abbott buses 42 migrants to Los Angeles

The city of Los Angeles received 42 migrants on Wednesday after a nearly 24-hour bus ride from Texas. Texas Governor Greg Abbott referred to their removal as “much-needed relief” for his state, citing the overwhelming influx of people illegally crossing the border. He expressed his intention to continue sending migrants to major cities like Los Angeles until President Biden secures the border. The migrants, including children and older individuals, were provided with food, shelter, and legal aid at a church near downtown Los Angeles. The advocates and officials did not provide a complete list of the migrants’ origins, but mentioned that they came from countries such as Venezuela, Guatemala, Honduras, with some having African and Asian descent. The circumstances regarding the migrants’ voluntary participation in the trip and their awareness of their destination were not immediately clear. Immigration advocates and city officials vowed to treat the migrants with dignity and determine if they were illegally detained. Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass, who was away on a planned trip, criticized Governor Abbott’s actions as using human beings for political gain. City and county officials had prepared for the arrival of the migrants upon hearing about Abbott’s plan to send migrants to sanctuary cities.
