Jackson calls for investigation into migrant bus program – NBC Chicago


Illinois Rep. Jonathan Jackson has called for a federal investigation into Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s program to bus migrants from the U.S.-Mexico border, saying it amounts to “human trafficking”.

The letter, addressed to Attorney General Merrick Garland and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, asserts that the current situation is untenable and that Abbott’s actions should be examined.

Jackson says more than 55,000 migrants have been sent to six cities, including 19,000 to Chicago.

“(This is a) man-made crisis manufactured by the illegal actions of Governor Abbott,” Jackson said.

Jackson accuses Abbott of committing federal offenses, including “alien smuggling, domestic transportation, harboring and conspiracy/aiding or abetting,” as well as violations of Texas state law. The congressman also deemed these actions “illegal, xenophobic, inhumane and un-American”.

According to the city’s latest figures, 18,500 migrants have arrived in Chicago since August 2022. Currently, 11,307 residents are in city-run shelters, with another 3,739 waiting to be placed. A total of 433 buses have arrived in the city since last August, with three buses per day reported this week.
