Texas sends 12th migrant bus to LA; city may seek legal action despite approving sanctuary status

The City of Los Angeles is reportedly considering taking legal action against the state of Texas after the state sent a 12th bus of migrants to Los Angeles. The buses first started arriving in November 2019, and since then, the city has received more than 500 migrants from Texas.

The city had adopted a sanctuary status earlier this year, which means it will not allow the federal government to use its resources to deport undocumented immigrants. However, the city has yet to determine whether the bus of migrants violates the sanctuary status due to the fact that the immigrants are being sent by the state, rather than the federal government.

The city has promised legal action if the state sends more buses of migrants to Los Angeles. Officials have asked the state of Texas to stop sending migrants, and have reportedly asked for financial support for the ongoing care and services needed for the living in the city.

Ultimately, the decision for how to handle the bus of migrants falls to the City Council. It remains to be seen whether the City Council will take legal action against the state of Texas.
