(Headline USAPhiladelphia announced this week that it is preparing for its first migrant bus from Texas, even though it is unclear whether such a bus has even been sent.

On Sunday, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, a Democrat, told NBC-10 that his city is ready to welcome as many migrants as it can.

“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 told the news outlet. “It’s like a 36-40 hour bus trip, so they could be coming any time tomorrow, Tuesday – but whatever day they come, we’ll welcome them with open arms.”

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, however, said he had not sent a migrant bus to Philadelphia yet and that he has no plans to do so.

“We are currently only busing migrants to Washington, D.C., New York City and Chicago,” a spokesperson for Abbott said in a statement.

When pressed on where Philadelphia received information about this supposed migrant bus, a spokesperson for Kenney deflected.

“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’s spokesperson said.

Abbott has shipped hundreds of buses full of illegal immigrants to leftist cities over the past several months. On Nov. 10, he announced that he had shipped the 300th bus of migrants from Texas to Chicago.

“The 300th Texas bus of migrants just left for Chicago. As Biden does nothing, Texas will continue taking unprecedented action to relieve our overwhelmed border communities & secure the border,” he tweeted.

Texas has bused more than 7,900 of these migrants to D.C. since April, and more than 2,200 to New York City since Aug. 5.

Other Republican leaders have joined Abbott in sending migrants to self-proclaimed “sanctuary cities.” Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has sent 58 buses carrying 2,034 migrants to Washington, D.C., and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew 50 migrants into Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
