The first busload of migrants traveling from Texas to Philadelphia arrived early Wednesday morning. The moment was caught on video.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott mentioned on Tuesday that Philadelphia was being added to the list of liberal cities that will be receiving busloads of migrants that were allowed in the country by the Biden administration.
“Since April, Texas’ busing strategy has successfully provided much-needed relief to our border communities overwhelmed by the historic influx of migrants caused by President Biden’s reckless open border policies,” Governor Abbott said while announcing the bus departure from the Texas border region. “Until the Biden Administration does its job and provides Texans and the American people with sustainable border security, Texas will continue doing more than any other state in the nation’s history to defend against an invasion along the border, including adding more sanctuary cities like Philadelphia as drop-off locations for our busing strategy.”
The arrival came as no surprise to Philadelphia. Last weekend the city held meetings planning how to handle the arrival of the migrants. Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said the city would be ready to “welcome them with open arms.”
A woman who has been identified by many as Philadelphia City Council Member Helen Gym can be heard in the live-streamed video saying, “I am incredibly honored to be here. In general, people feel relieved. We want them to know they have a home here.”
“We have a 10-year-old who has a high fever and is deeply dehydrated,” Gym stated. “It’s an important example of why trips like this are inhumane and that the care should have been done on the front end before putting young children and family members on there.”
The State of Texas has now bussed over 13,000 migrants to the sanctuary cities of Washington DC, New York City, Chicago and now Philadelphia.
