The city of Chicago, which is a sanctuary city, has welcomed dozens of migrants sent by Texas.

In a statement on Wednesday, the city announced that 36 more migrants arrived to the Windy City. The migrants were provided with immediate shelter and support to meet their basic needs. The city went on to say that they are committed to assisting each family and individual by providing human services, respect and dignity.

In total, Chicago has reportedly received more than 3,700 asylum seekers who arrived on buses from Texas.

Texas Governor Gregg Abbott has sent thousands of migrants to Democrat-controlled cities as part of an effort to deal with the ongoing border crisis.

As of today, Texas has bused over 13,500 migrants to sanctuary cities: ➡️ Almost 8,400 to D.C.➡️ Over 3,800 to NYC➡️ Over 1,200 to Chicago➡️ Almost 100 to Philadelphia

Texas is doing whatever it takes to provide relief to our overwhelmed border communities.
