When Gov. Abbott announced Texas would be sending busses of illegal immigrants to Washington D.C. and New York City, many rolled their eyes thinking it was all a publicity stunt meant to highlight the harrowing effects of Biden’s open borders policies.
However, no one believed Abbott’s plan would produce actual results!
Democratic leaders in cities up north are outraged about the number of migrants arriving in their “sanctuary cities.”
New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser broke their silence this week to call on the Biden White House to help states and cities far away from the southern border respond to the influx of illegal immigrants who were released into the country and chose to travel to their cities.

Bowser claimed on Sunday that migrants were being “tricked” into boarding the buses and that the matter of crowding homeless shelters was a “significant issue.”
But Bowser’s sudden concern comes three months into the busing operation, as nonprofit groups in her backyard have spent $260,000 assisting newly arrived migrants and have begged the district to step up to no avail.
More than 150 buses traveling from Arizona and Texas have transported approximately 6,000 migrants to the nation’s capital over the past three months, the Washington Examiner reported earlier this month. The operation has collectively cost both border states millions of taxpayer dollars, including $6.8 million in Texas to date.
Because thousands of migrants are released and permitted to travel anywhere in the country each day, regional airports and bus lines are overwhelmed. For example, the sole nonprofit group assisting migrants in the Arizona border city of Yuma has begun transporting people to airports across state lines due to a shortage of flights in Yuma and Phoenix.
Republican Gov. Greg Abbott initiated the operation in mid-April to help border communities, as well as stick it to Joe Biden for how he said the White House’s walking back of Trump-era immigration policies was leading more people to come to the border.
Gov. Doug Ducey commenced a similar initiative in mid-May. Both states have migrants sign waivers before boarding, stating that they seek to be driven to Washington.
It’s quite fascinating the sudden change of tune America’s most liberal mayors have when illegal immigration becomes a problem happening in their own backyards.
Just goes to show the insane hypocrisy prevalent within the Democrat Party!
