“One bus with migrants on board from Texas arrived around 6:30 p.m PT today at Union Station,” said Zach Seidl, a spokesperson for Bass’ office. “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.”

Abbott’s office confirmed a bus from Texas arrived Tuesday in L.A.

The city opened a temporary emergency shelter for 14 of the people while officials try to make arrangements for their travel or pickup, according to the mayor’s office.

According to the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA), about half of the people aboard the bus were from Venezuela, with others coming from Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Guatemala, Haiti and Honduras. A spokesperson for the nonprofit said the bus left Brownsville, Texas, at 4:25 p.m. Monday.

The group comprised 35 adults and six children, including a 1-year-old, the coalition said in a statement. Initially, 45 asylum seekers left Texas, but a family of four got off the bus in Arizona to meet with their sponsors, according to a spokesperson for the coalition.

After the bus arrived at Union Station, the asylum seekers received a full meal, clothing, hygiene kits and a basic health screening, CHIRLA said. Over a dozen in the group plan to stay in Los Angeles, while others will continue to other destinations, including Phoenix, Washington state and elsewhere in California, the coalition said.

Since the first bus arrived at Union Station in mid-June, the coalition has welcomed 154 migrants sent from Texas to Los Angeles by the Abbott administration.

“We do not mistake these busing episodes as well-intentioned. Texas and Florida have shown a callous disregard to the human experience, especially as it relates to asylum seekers with black and brown skin,” Angelica Salas, CHIRLA’s executive director, said in a statement. “Busing migrants anywhere in the middle of a scorching summer is not kind, it is cruel and unjustified.

“As an organized collective in Los Angeles and as advocates for a more humane and just society for immigrants, we will do what we must to protect the dignity and safety of these families whenever they arrive,” Salas said.

    Good for Governor Abbott. If you want to be a sanctuary city, then we should take on even more. Why burden the red states when the blue states vote this crap in. They want open borders they should have to live with the consequences and not move to red states when they don’t like crime from defunding the police and voting in District Attorneys who were paid for by Soros who let out all of the criminals and when crime becomes rampant, they move to safe states aka red states. They should make a law that if you vote DNC you live in the mire that you voted for and are unable to ruin other states that won’t allow this type of behavior. Let them all come here and wait until the DNC originators of the KKK learn that tuberculosis is a lot more deadly than covid-19 and these people coming most likely will cause a surge in TB as evidenced in the hospital I work for. They don’t test for that when you allow millions to come freely to your country invited only to vote DNC. Ah but it is only a communicable disease freely passed by through air in droplet form. So easy to catch so hard to rid. The DNC is the most destructive force against America, worse than any locus. Why they hate the greatest country in the world God only knows.

      I agree with you 100%…..

      not only that, but the COMMUNIST DEMON-KKK-RAT’S plan is to flood AMERICA with illegals and their ANCHOR BABIES, get social security cards for their anchor babies and use them to get a job and use them to petition their other family members, more ILLEGAL ALIENS, to come to AMERICA…..TO VOTE ILLEGALLY FOR THEM… one is talking about this….

      THIS IS A TOTAL ‘INVASION’…. and will manifest itself in the furture to destroy AMERICA….

    SANCTUARY CITY…Need I say more…

  3. Rottweiler, if your hospital experiences a surge in TB, shout it from the rooftops, please. My father’s grandmother and two of her brothers died of TB. A sad sad story. Only his mother, age eight, survived.

    But I never worried about it, everybody having been tested every year before returning to school, and never hearing of another case all during my long life – until it recently reappeared in LA, a 19th-century plague making a sudden reappearance. Oddly enough, we rarely read anything more on this subject. Hm. Wonder why.
