"The city has continued to work with city departments, the county, and a coalition of nonprofit organizations, in addition to our faith partners, to execute a plan set in place earlier this year," Bass' office said. "As we have before, when we became aware of the bus yesterday, we activated our plan."
After the two buses arrived at Union Station Saturday morning, the migrants were taken to Cathedral High School.
In an update Monday, officials said all migrants had reunited with loved ones in cities including Victorville, Modesto, San Diego, Oakland, and as far as Orondo, Washington. Seven of the migrants left by bus, 6 left out of LAX airport, and the rest were picked up by loved ones.
The migrants were bused in from the Texas-Mexico border and Texas Governor Greg Abbott has claimed credit for it, citing LA as a sanctuary city.

According to Abbott's office, Texas has been chartering buses to take migrants from Texas to locations including Washington, D.C., New York City, Chicago and Philadelphia, and most recently adding Denver to the list of destinations. Since beginning the busing effort last spring, thousands of migrants have been shipped out of Texas to "these self-declared sanctuary cities," according to Abbott's office.
