From El Paso to El Capitol: Texas to Bus Migrants to DC for Biden to Deal With

What’s that old saying again?  Don’t mess with Texas?

Lone Star State Governor Greg Abbott understands the issues surrounding illegal immigration as well as any lawmaker in this great nation of ours.  His people live on one enormous stretch of the border between the United States and Mexico, and they are dealing with the very real repercussions of unfettered access to America.

Despite his constant pleas for assistance from the federal government, Democratic administrations haven’t been all that keen to beef up border security as it tends to turn off the radical leftists whose votes they need every couple of years.

And so Abbott is doing something drastic.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Wednesday that undocumented migrants released into his state will be shipped to the steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., as border checkpoints struggle to manage the flow of people attempting to enter the United States and the Biden administration’s move to eliminate the Title 42 expulsion provision.

The state will provide charter buses to drop off migrants – many released into small Texas communities that officials say are overwhelmed – in Washington, the Republican governor said in a news conference.

The governor made his feelings known wryly.

“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,” Abbott said.

And we’re not talking about some tour-group-sized caches of would-be Americans, either.  The last time Texas had to gather their emergency buses, the vehicles numbered nearly 1,000.
