On Wednesday, both Governors in Texas and Florida said they intend to charter buses to take illegal immigrants to locations President Joe Biden would have no choice but to personally address the issue, citing the damage from overturning Title 42.
Title 42 was executed in March 2020 by the Trump administration in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, enabling the quick deportation of migrants at the border.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is threatening “unprecedented actions” to address the large number of migrants expected to cross the southern border. According to the federal government, they expect about 18,000 to cross the border per day because of the ending of Title 42 in May.
Abbott remarked “We are sending them to the United States Capitol where the Biden administration will be able to more immediately address the needs of the people that they are allowing to come across our border.”
Republican Governor Ted Cruz commented on Abbott’s plan and even gave him a few more places to consider.
According to Fox News, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said on Wednesday he would like to send illegals who are “dumped” in Florida, straight to President Biden’s home state of Delaware. Biden represented Delaware for 35 years prior to his stents in the White House, from 1973 to 2009.
DeSantis said in a press conference on Wednesday for signing the Florida Bill “No Patient Left Alone Act”, “What we’re doing in Florida is saying, ‘We’re not gonna let the recklessness of those policies impact our state,'” DeSantis told those in attendance. “If businesses or contractors are dumping people who are illegal into Florida from southern Texas, you know, we’re gonna go after their ability to do business in Florida.”
Going on to say, “If Biden is dumping people, which he has dumped people, they fly them in at two in the morning,” DeSantis continued. “They haven’t done it lately, but they did it many months ago. We now have money where we can reroute them to sanctuary states like Delaware — and we’re gonna do that — to make sure we’re keeping people safe here.”
Currently, at least three Republican attorney generals have filed lawsuits, after Biden’s administration rescinded the Title 42 public health order, set for May 23rd.
