Joliet, IL – A bus carrying asylum seekers was escorted out of Joliet by local police on Wednesday, following an attempt to drop off passengers at the Joliet Union Station.
The bus, initially spotted at the Manhattan Metra Station, was redirected due to limited service. Upon its arrival in Joliet, the driver was informed of a city ordinance that restricts unauthorized migrant drop-offs.
This led to the decision to escort the bus out of the city limits, highlighting the ongoing challenges in managing the movement and support of asylum seekers in the area. It’s unclear where the migrants ended up following the incident.
