Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced Thursday that the 300th busload is headed from Texas to Chicago.
“The 300th Texas bus carrying migrants has just left Texas for Chicago. Abbott tweeted that Texas would continue to take unprecedented actions to help our border communities and secure the border, even if Biden does not do anything.

Massive numbers of migrants are flooding America’s southern border month after month. U.S. Customs and Border Protection recorded more than 2.3 Million southwest land border encounters in the 2022 fiscal years, which ran October 2021 to September 2022.

Abbott began transporting migrants from Texas and Washington D.C. earlier this year. The trips are voluntary for migrants. The Windy City was added later as a destination.

According to an August 31 press release, Abbott stated that Chicago would join Washington, D.C., and New York City to provide much-needed relief for our small, overrun border cities. “Mayor Lightfoot loves to promote the responsibility of her city for welcoming all, regardless of their legal status. I look forward seeing this responsibility in action when these migrants receive resources from an sanctuary city with the ability to serve them.”

This week, Abbott defeated Democratic candidate for governor Beto O’Rourke to secure a third term. O’Rourke has been losing for many years, having previously served as a U.S. House of Representatives member. O’Rourke lost the 2018 U.S. Senate race to Ted Cruz, incumbent GOP senator. In 2019, O’Rourke attempted to run for president but he dropped out. He now has a 2022 loss in the gubernatorial elections.
