Texas Gov. Greg Abbott ordered state troopers on Wednesday to begin stopping and inspecting commercial vehicles coming across the U.S-Mexico border and said bus charters would be offered to take illegal migrants to Washington, D.C., in a dig at President Biden and Congress.
With only seven weeks to go until the Biden administration lifts the Title 42 immigration order, Abbott announced multiple measures to protect his state and combat the massive influx of migrants anticipated to cross the border this spring.
“We are sending them to the United States capital where the Biden administration will be able to more immediately address the needs of the people that they are allowing to come across our border,” he added.

Sources tell me w/ parole releases, the migrants are asked to turn themselves into ICE in a city of their choice. I’m told many of them are given these phones by the government to track them and allow them to communicate w/ ICE, but there’s no way to stop them from being tossed. pic.twitter.com/tAogWloQgy

Biden administration giving cell phones to illegal immigrants
The White House confirmed Wednesday that illegal immigrants are being provided with electronic devices, notably cell phones, in an effort for the Biden administration to “track” and “check in” with them as they await immigration court proceedings.
Asked by Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy about the initiative, White House press secretary Jen Psaki the purpose was to monitor illegal immigrants.
“We need to take steps to ensure that we know where individuals are and we can track and we can check in with them,” Psaki said.

FANTASTIC !!!!! WAY TO GO, GREG !!!!!
I hear that DeSantis plans to start busing them to Delaware. If Biden isn’t going to enforce our immigration laws and chooses to encourage the invasion at our Southern Border—then, by God, let him personally deal with them.
From what i heard, he’s not doing this to all. Just supposedly, to those who VOLUNTEER To get bussed to DC.
PERSONALLY, i’d load them all up at GUN POINT, and march them into the back of a c130, and AIR DROP THEM BACK over Guatemalla, honduras and the like.. FROM 20,000 feet up!
Busses, trains, planes, taxicabs, fill them, load them, send them to all the liberal gated communities in the country and drop them on the doorsteps of those who inflict this on the rest of the nation!
Wouldn’t it be cheaper just to send them to ugly old stupid drunk hag Pelosi’s house in California?
AND newsomes front lawn!
Way to go Gov Abbott.
Be sure to drop them on Congress steps and at the White House. Do in early in the week so Biden is on premises, not a weekend.
We don’t know if at this point if this is just bravado from the governor or if he is actually going to try to get it done. The local conservative pundits in Texas think it may just be posturing and not really feasible because it would have to be legally done on a “voluntary basis”. This whole scenario is incredibly nuts. We literally can’t keep felons from crossing the border and going wherever they want to go. Beam me up Scotty.
I heard one suggestion that they may start sicking Razor wire IN THE WATER.. I’d just prefer mines! OR Pirannah!
It’s for publicity. Lord knows someone has to do something to publicize Biden’s open borders. The media won’t cover it unless they can find a way to do it by slamming a conservative.
If only more Republicans had this courage we wouldn’t be where were we are now.
Strange its the STATE level republicans, showing THIS much spine.. AND NOT those in the house/senate..
BECAUSE maybe if they HAD shown some, we would still HAVE TRUMP in office..
As Commander In Chief of the Armed Forces, President Brandon needs to be court-martialed, period. Dereliction of duty, abandonment of US personnel and citizens in enemy territory, compromising our borders, and, the sovereignty and security of our country, finally giving comfort and support to our national enemies Before serving his sentence he would also need to be impeached
BIG ISSUE is who the hell would PUSH for those charges?? Certainly not the wastes of oxygen, known as the current GOP..
