Welcoming Asylum Seeker Buses from Texas

Part of a coordinated response in Chicago.

 On August 31, 2022, buses of asylum seekers and other migrants from Texas began arriving in Chicago.

World Relief Chicagoland welcomes those who have arrived on buses from Texas. These individuals and families have fled hardships such as corruption, threats against their lives, loss of loved ones, and authoritarian regimes.

In line with our Christian faith motivation, we believe immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers are human beings and deserving of dignity and respect.

As the City of Chicago coordinates a response, World Relief Chicagoland joins with many other partners to welcome and serve.
