Texas Governor. Greg Abbott proved that he wasn’t just fooling around or pulling a publicity stunt when he told Joe Biden that if he continued on his path of allowing illegal aliens to stream into Texas, he, Abbott, would be shipping some of the people to Washington, D.C. for Biden to have to deal with. The first buses arrived in D.C. last week, fulfilling his promise. Abbott claimed that Texas is unable to handle the massive influx.
“To help local officials whose communities are being overwhelmed by hordes of illegal immigrants who are being dropped off by the Biden administration, Texas is providing charter buses to send these illegal immigrants who have been dropped off by the Biden administration to Washington D.C.,” Abbott said of his plan to transport illegal immigrants to the nation’s capital.
But Fox picked up on something interesting — the people getting off the first bus were mostly single adult males. Did you recall the Biden team claiming that Title 42 expelled single male adults and allowed families to remain? This is the story of the bus.

This was White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki saying that it was a publicity stunt and Abbott couldn’t do it.
Doocy: “The Texas Governor is saying that he’s going to start bussing border crossers to Washington DC, when they get here are you guys going to help them find a place to stay?”

When she was asked about it on Wednesday after the first bus got there, you could tell how ticked she was as she desperately flipped through her briefing book to figure out an answer to the question to spin the situation, but she was basically left babbling that the illegal aliens were “free to travel” now, somewhat different than her prior statement.

That’s part of the problem — under Biden, they have been free to travel all over the country. The message the Biden team is sending continues to be negative. You will need to go through a lot of steps to be allowed to enter legally. It may also take time. But if you break in through the Southern border, you are “free to travel” anywhere without any real vetting, and hey, you might even get a free phone into the bargain!
But now, they’re on Joe Biden’s doorstep.
Another bus, with men claiming to be from Venezuela or Nicaragua arrived Thursday.
Abbott’s plan is having its desired effect. Now it’s making the Biden team less likely to dump illegal aliens in Texas towns for them to have to deal with.
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.
Drop them by the White House and maybe then they will get the message that there’s a problem.
