The Republican governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, continues to bus migrants to Chicago.
Thousands of people — mostly Venezuelans — are living in temporary shelters here, including police stations and O’Hare airport.
It’s a humanitarian crisis stretching city resources.
Abbott claims he is sending migrants to Democratic cities – without any coordination – to protest US immigration policies.
But Chicago Congressman Jonathan Jackson says Abbott’s actions are a large-scale human smuggling operation.
Jackson is asking the U.S. Departments of Justice and Homeland Security to investigate. He joined WBEZ to discuss this.
