The surge of illegal migrants under Biden’s watch is no joke, illegal aliens are more confident to cross the borders this time because of Biden’s weak policy. What’s even worst is that they even used hard-earned taxes from working Americans to support these illegals.
What Texas Gov. Greg Abbott did to illegal immigrants is one of those effective and amusing moves that, pointedly, is no joke.
Leaving them on the steps of Congress is a direct shot at Joe Biden, who served the problem in Texas in the first place.
Biden’s derelict immigration and border security policies hit Texas harder than anywhere. The state received more than half of the 2 million-plus illegals who crossed the southern border in 2021.
Fox News reported that on Wednesday the first busload of migrants arrived, and it was followed up by a second busload on Thursday.
A second bus from Texas arrived near the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., just before 4:30 a.m. Thursday, transporting more than a dozen illegal immigrants as part of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s new plan to counter federal immigration policies during an ongoing border crisis.
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.
Fourteen migrants stepped off the bus a block from Union Station on First Street. The migrants are from Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba and Colombia, one man said.
Abbott wrote in a tweet on Wednesday containing a Fox News video of migrants arriving in the nation’s capital on the first bus.
“As the federal government continues to turn a blind eye to the border crisis, Texas will remain steadfast in our efforts to fill in the gaps & keep Texans safe. We should not have to bear the burden of Biden’s failure to secure our border. A second bus is en route.”

More details of this story from a Fox News report:
According to TDEM, Abbott’s plan is already working. The agency told Fox News on Monday that many of the communities that originally reached out for support – from the Rio Grande Valley to Terrell County – say the federal government stopped dropping immigrants in their towns since Abbott’s announcement on April 6.
TDEM said it dispatched buses over the weekend to border communities where it coordinated with officials to identify these immigrants. The agency added that each bus has the capacity and supplies necessary to carry up to 40 migrants released in Texas communities and transport them to Washington, D.C.
The governor’s legal authority to transport busloads of migrants to the U.S. Capitol remains in question. The 2012 Supreme Court case Arizona v. the United States prevents states from making their own immigration policies.
Abbott insists that the federal government is failing to adequately address the situation.
“Texans demand and deserve an aggressive, comprehensive strategy to secure our border—not President Biden’s lackluster leadership,” Abbott said in a statement. “As the federal government continues to roll back commonsense policies that once kept our communities safe, our local law enforcement has stepped up to protect Texans from dangerous criminals, deadly drugs, and illegal contraband flooding into the Lone Star State.”
The public doesn’t want illegal immigration, yet Biden will probably smash the record he set only last year. This is undemocratic — against both the law and the wishes of the people who elected him.
If hundreds or thousands of illegal migrants turn up in Washington, perhaps Biden will twig to the fact that it’s his problem and he must do something about it.
