Governor Abbot decided to relax the border restrictions concerning illegal immigrants. Instead, he is shipping them to Washington DC for relocation when he finds them. I like this. Maybe the legislators in DC will get the message finally.

A second group of asylum seekers arrived in Washington, D.C., Thursday on a charter bus after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott directed the Texas Division of Emergency Management to transport migrants from Texas to D.C.


Abbott, a Republican who is running for reelection this fall, has been a harsh critic of the Biden administration's immigration policies and has sought to make headlines with countermeasures.
"By busing migrants to Washington, DC, the Biden administration will be able to more immediately meet the needs of the people they are allowing to cross our border," Abbott said in a statement. "Texas should not have to bear the burden of the Biden administration's failure to secure our border."

Construction and agriculture lobbies (among others) have already provided the message to our politicians.

Pretend to care about illegal immigration while looking the other way when it comes to employing illegals.

If they're illegal the border patrol sends them back. Anyone who is allowed to stay has some sort of legal status.

Why can you guys not understand this?

it doesn't matter, they can wait on biden's doorstep for their hearings as a message about all those that cross illegally.

if they crossed illegally , then they should be regarded as illegals.

It is understood. Why do you think it isn't?

He used to have tight inspections before this, but it bogged down the border too much to catch them on the other side of the border before they cross. This policy change shifts the financial burden to Washington DC

Just shameless, egregious ignorance on your part.

The people that Abbott is shipping to Washington are people claiming asylum status. They are awaiting legal hearings. Abbott sending these people on buses to Washington is shameful, but the racist GQP base eats it up. Including you.

It puts the costs in DC hands instead of Texas.

They grabbed lunch and bought bus tickets to Miami... Stupid is as stupid does...

 
This is just Abbot politicking. There is no advantage to Texas or to the country in this. Just stupid, all we have in the GOP is efforts to do what they think will make the libs cringe. Actually this Abbot nonsense and in fact his endless nonsense should make everybody with a brain cringe.
 
Actually I don't know which Abbot nonsense is worse, insisting on safety inspections for trucks coming across the border from Mexico with produce and electronic parts or this border immigration nonsense. Abbot is an absolute disgrace. If Texas was not ashamed before these stunts it should be by now.

Would be hilarious watching Republicans losing their minds if Beto were to win this November.
 
I hope these are teh ones that are supposed to put taco trucks on every corner like republicans promised years ago.
