City officials in Philadelphia are reportedly bracing themselves for the possible arrival of a bus filled with 52 illegal immigrants from the border city of Del Rio, Texas within the week.

Of the thousands of illegal immigrant buses sent from Texas by order of Governor Greg Abbott sent to Washington, D.C., New York, and Chicago, this would be the first bound for Philadelphia according to Fox News.

A spokesman for Mayor Jim Kenney of Philadelphia, the same mayor who memorably broke out in impromptu singing and dancing when a court ruled to affirm his ‘sanctuary city‘ policies, told the outlet “the situation is still fluid,” only to criticize Texas officials for not coordinating the move.

“This information was relayed to us from a community partner organization as Texas officials have not coordinated with the city,” the spokesperson said.

Adding, “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.”

Kenney told NBC Philadelphia that the city will welcome the illegal immigrants “with open arms.”

The mayor went on to criticize the Texas leaders for sending the illegal immigrants to the sanctuary cities without naming Abbott directly. “This is what I don’t understand about people who profess to be Christians and talk about Christian ethics. And you put people on a bus and send them up for a political stunt, we will do our Christian duty, our human duty, to take care of people in need,” he told reporters.

David Oh, a City Councilman-at-large, seemed to sympathize with border cities’ plight but also criticized their lack of coordination with Philly authorities speaking with Steve Keeley of Fox29 in a video posted to Twitter.

“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 according to The Post Millennial. “It’s like a 36-40 hour bus trip, so they could be coming any time [Monday], Tuesday.”
