Immigrant advocacy groups in the Denver area are scrambling to prepare for 50-100 migrants expected to arrive next month from the U.S.-Mexico border.

What's happening: Migrants are coming to Colorado as the southern border is facing an influx, overwhelming local shelters in southern states such as Texas. What they're saying: "The people who are arriving here without any contacts don't have anywhere to go," Denise Chang, executive director at the Colorado Hosting Asylum Network, told Axios Denver.

DENVER— Seventy-five migrants bused from Texas by Governor Greg Abbott are now in Chicago. This is all part of a strategy launched this year to share the influx of people coming into the U.S. with sanctuary cities across the country to protest President Joe Biden's immigration policies. Denver and Aurora are part of that list of sanctuary cities.
