Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott was not joking when he suggested Texas would send illegal immigrants to Washington, DC. The first bus from Texas has arrived in DC, dropping off dozens of migrants just blocks from the Capitol.
The bus arrived in Washington, DC straight from Texas as part of Gov. Abbott’s plan to relocate migrants, counteracting the Joe Biden administrations’ federal immigration policies that appear to be failing, leaving America with a potential crisis at the border.
Further reported: “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 U.S. Capitol building. Fox News has learned that they came from the Del Rio sector in Texas, after coming to the U.S. from Colombia, Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.
Upon the bus’s arrival in Washington, D.C., 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.”

It remains unclear how many buses filled with migrants will be chartered from Texas to Washington, DC. Gov. Abbott may continue to have this done until President Joe Biden addresses the situation, as it seems quite clear that vice president Kamala Harris is completely ineffective and does not appear to have any answers to solve the problems.
