According to NBC Chicago, the state of Illinois was told to "prepare" for 25 busses full of migrants coming from the Mexico border each day. NBC Chicago goes on to say...

"Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker was told to prepare for up to 25 buses full of migrants each day as Chicago struggles to shelter and keep up with an influx of migrants being sent from Texas. The governor said the warning came from Texas, which has been busing migrants to Chicago, a designated sanctuary city, for several months. Beatriz Ponce de Leon, the deputy mayor of immigrant, migrant and refugee rights in Chicago, also reported similar guidance, noting that the buses could potentially bring in 1,250 migrants a day."

The story goes on to mention how the governor of Illinois has reached out to the governor of Texas about stopping this process of sending migrants on busses to Chicago, and he also has reached out to the president for help in dealing with this crisis in Chicago.

All of this comes after last week the governor of Illinois asked downstate cities to "volunteer" and help Chicago deal with the influx of people, you can read more about that by clicking here!

This is obviously very concerning news for the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois as a whole. I have said it before and I will say it again this needs to be dealt with by the president and at the federal level, I don't blame the state of Texas for not wanting to have to manage this influx of migrants all by themselves, and I don't blame the state of Illinois for asking Texas to stop. This is a crisis that isn't going to be solved by letting the states pass people back and forth to each other over and over again. Is there a good solution? And as a resident of Illinois are you ok with all of these migrants being bussed to Chicago?
