Texas flew over 120 migrants to Chicago, marking the first such flight from Texas to the city.

The move comes after Chicago’s crackdown on buses transporting migrants from Texas.

The city has been dealing with a migrant crisis, with over 26,000 migrants arriving since last year. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

A Chicago city spokesperson said, the plane was chartered by the Texas Department of Emergency Management.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s decision to expand operations to include flights to Chicago has sparked controversy, with Chicago officials accusing him of lawlessness.

“Sanctuary city Chicago started obstructing and targeting our busing mission,” said Gov. Abbott.

“Texas will now expand our operation to include flights to Chicago,” he continued.

Adding, “Until Biden steps up to secure the border, we will continue to provide overwhelmed Texas border towns with much-needed relief.”

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson said, “Clearly the governor is trying to circumvent law.”

“And this is lawlessness that he is engaged in right now,” added the mayor.

This move follows the record number of migrant encounters at the border, posing significant challenges for authorities.
