Texas has now sent around 300 buses of immigrants to predominantly Democrat-run areas of the country in an effort to deal with an influx of illegal aliens at the southern border.
Gov. Greg Abbott announced the latest transportation of illegal immigrants to so-called “sanctuary” cities on Twitter on Nov. 11.
“The 300th Texas bus of migrants just left for Chicago,” the Republican governor wrote. “As [President Joe] Biden does nothing, Texas will continue taking unprecedented action to relieve our overwhelmed border communities & secure the border.”
A statement from Abbott’s office on Nov. 4 said that Texas has bused almost 8,300 illegal immigrants to Washington, D.C. since April, over 3,500 to New York City since Aug. 5, and more than 1,100 to Chicago since Aug. 31 as part of its effort to secure the border.
The governor’s office says the busing mission is “providing much-needed relief to our overwhelmed border communities.”
Abbott and other Republicans have criticized Biden’s open border policies for creating a crisis that has seen record-breaking numbers of illegal immigrants attempting to enter the United States.
Record Number of Arrests at Border
Roughly 4.9 million people have illegally crossed into the United States from Mexico since Biden took office in January 2021, according to a report released in August.
Meanwhile, more than 2.3 million illegal immigrants were arrested at the southern border during fiscal year 2022, according to data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection published in September (pdf), the highest number ever recorded.
The uptick in illegal immigrants has also seen cartels bringing the deadly drug fentanyl across the border in record amounts.
Terrible tragedy out of Dallas yesterday when there is a mid-air collision at an airshow. No one reports how many were on board, but undoubtedly none survived. No doubt many were veterans. God Bless them.
So, let’s see… they’ll be asking people looking for more subsidies and hand-outs if they fully understood where they asked to be sent? Oh, I’m sure that will be handled equitably and justly by those who ideologically enforce ALL laws.
