Biden is shocked!

On Thursday night, the ninth and tenth buses carrying migrants who entered through the country’s southern border to Washington, D.C.

This is part of Gov. Greg Abbott’s controversial policy which takes migrants to the nation’s capital by bus. This move was made in response to Title 42 being rescinded after President Biden’s announcement earlier this month. The health measure allowed the U.S. to deny migrants entry into the country.

“By busing migrants to Washington, D.C., the Biden Administration will be able to more immediately meet the needs of the people they are allowing to cross our border,” Abbott said. “Texas should not have to bear the burden of the Biden Administration’s failure to secure our border.”

Abbott also stated in an interview on “Hannity” earlier this week that he needed to come up with “new ideas to do the federal government’s job” especially as the influx of migrants at border checkpoints was becoming increasingly harder to manage. The move to eliminate Title 42 is predicted to cause more trouble as officials will not be able to expel migrants entering the country.

“It’s an atrocity that we have a President of the United States that is not securing the border. He is violating laws passed by Congress to secure the border and on top of that, we have a president who is turning a blind eye to security-based issues by allowing people on terrorist watch lists to come into the United States of America,” Abbott said.

Abbott instructed the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to start transporting incoming migrants released from deferral custody to the U.S Capital as well as to other locations outside of Texas.

Ordalis Heras, 26, an asylum seeker from Venezuela said upon arriving in Washington, D.C., “We are very thankful for all the help that has been given to us. Frankly, we did not have the money to get here otherwise, so we are very thankful for the help.” Adding, “From here on in, I think things will be better. I have hope that things will be better and that my children will have a better quality of life.”
