Bus carrying illegal aliens to arrive in Philadelphia this week

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney says that the city would welcome the migrants "with open arms."

Philadelphia is preparing for the potential arrival of a busload of migrants coming from Del Rio, Texas, later this week.

A spokesperson for the city told Fox News that information regarding the bus and its arrival are still not clear. 

"This information was relayed to us from a community partner organization as Texas Officials have not coordinated with the city," the spokesperson said. "We do not have an exact location of where the bus will disembark, nor do we have any specific information about those on board, nor do we know if other buses are planned." 

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney told NBC Philadelphia that the city would welcome the migrants "with open arms," though he also remained unclear of the timeline.

"We were getting information from various advocacy sources that they were on their way, but we don't know whether or not they've actually left," Kenney said. "It’s like a 36-40 hour bus trip, so they could be coming any time [Monday], Tuesday."

The city is confident that they have enough of a plan in place, including shelter, food, and clothing. There are also plans to try and expedite work permits for the migrants so that they may become self-sufficient sooner.

Other self-proclaimed sanctuary cities that have received migrant buses in the last few months have reported being overwhelmed by the influx of illegal immigrants, so much so that a public emergency was declared.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott first announced that he would be transporting busloads of migrants out of Texas back in April. He has since then sent out hundreds of migrant buses to sanctuary cities across the country.

The 300th bus filled with migrants from Texas left for Chicago last week.

The migrant buses have been dismissed by Democrats as simply a publicity stunt, but Abbott insists that the move is to relieve pressure from the overwhelmed border towns that take the brunt of Biden's failing immigration policies.

"Texas refuses to let our border towns be steamrolled by President Biden's border crisis and we're doing whatever it takes to relieve our communities," Abbott tweeted on Monday.

"Biden refuses to come see the mess he's made at the border," Abbott tweeted back in April, "so Texas is bringing the border to him."
