On Wednesday, November 16, 2022, the City of Philadelphia welcomed individuals seeking asylum who were bused from Texas. As a proud welcoming city, we will greet our newly arrived neighbors with dignity and respect. City agencies, Office of Emergency Management (OEM) mass care partners, immigrant leaders, and immigrant-serving nonprofits are working together to welcome, assist, and provide support to these individuals and families.
We want to acknowledge the generosity and compassion we have already seen from residents and community partners since we were alerted to these individuals arriving in Philadelphia. Below is more information about how you can get involved and help Philadelphia’s newest arrivals.
