In this first salvo of his declared war against Joe Biden’s failed immigration policies, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has had a busload of migrants sent to Washington DC!
Abbott announced last week that he was directing the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to transport migrants released from federal custody in Texas to the nation’s capital and other locations outside his state.
The bus pulled up at approximately 8 a.m. local time, blocks away from the US Capitol building. Fox News reported that the busload of released migrants came from the Del Rio sector in Texas after originally coming to the US from Colombia, Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.
Upon the bus’s arrival in Washington, DC, individuals disembarked one by one except for family units who exited together. They checked in with officials and had wristbands they were wearing cut off before being told they could go.
According to TDEM, Abbott’s plan is already working. The agency told Fox News that many of the communities that originally reached out for support – from the Rio Grande Valley to Terrell County – say the federal government stopped dropping immigrants in their towns since Abbott’s announcement on April 6.
Some had questioned whether Abbott’s plan to bus migrants was genuine. The White House dismissed it as a “publicity stunt.” Even Texas state Rep. Matt Schaefer, a Republican, called it a “gimmick.”
TDEM said it dispatched buses over the weekend to border communities where it coordinated with officials to identify these immigrants. The agency added that each bus has the capacity and supplies necessary to carry up to 40 migrants released in Texas communities and transport them from the Lone Star State to Washington, DC.
Still, the governor’s legal authority to transport busloads of migrants to the US Capitol remains in question. The 2012 Supreme Court case, Arizona v. the United States, prevents states from making their own immigration policies.
Abbott insists that the federal government is failing to adequately address the situation. President Biden recently announced that he would be rescinding Title 42, which was used to expel migrants swiftly due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Texans demand and deserve an aggressive, comprehensive strategy to secure our border—not President Biden’s lackluster leadership,” Abbott said in a statement. “As the federal government continues to roll back commonsense policies that once kept our communities safe, our local law enforcement has stepped up to protect Texans from dangerous criminals, deadly drugs, and illegal contraband flooding into the Lone Star State.”

Good for Governor Abbott
Why should Texas or any other state have to put up with these low lives coming here for freebies? Biden was the a$$ to open the border then let him and his comics support them. After all they have done nothing since 2021 but try to stop Trump when in all reality its the DemonRATS that are the rea; cause of this inflation, gas hikes, and shootings.
Its about time someone has the guts to put Biden in the crossfires. Sure allow the illegals in the country, spread COVID put this country in lockdown again, so that come election time the Dems will send out mail in ballots so the Dems could do what they do best cheat. Have people hide in their homes afraid to be in public.
This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
