The Hill reports that Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott (R) and Florida Gov. Greg DeSantis (R) have the Democrats’ “blood boiling” as a result of their recent decision to voluntarily transport illegal immigrants to various parts of the country.
Abbott started the trend months ago, voluntarily busing illegal immigrants from Texas to Democrat-run cities, such as New York City, Washington D.C., and Chicago, Illinois.
The idea is to give these Democrat cities, that support open-border policies, a taste of what border states have to deal with as a result of the ongoing southern border crisis.
As we will see, the Democrats are not liking it at all.
This week, Abbott chose a new destination for the illegal immigrants he has been busing out of Texas: the U.S. vice president’s residence.
Two buses, containing over 100 immigrants, arrived at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., on Thursday morning.
A little added twist to this story is that the immigrants arrived at Vice President Kamala Harris’s official residence within days of her claiming that the U.S. southern border is “secure.” The buses of the illegal immigrants that showed up at her front door would suggest otherwise.
This week, DeSantis also joined in Abbott’s plan. DeSantis did so on Wednesday by sending two planes of illegal immigrants from Florida to Martha’s Vineyard, a well-known gathering spot for former President Barack Obama and other progressives.
The Dems’ response
The Democrats have responded to the situation by accusing Abbott, DeSantis, and others of immorally using illegal immigrants as political pawns. They also have accused the Republicans of “racism.”
Massachusetts state Sen. Julian Cyr (D), for example, called the sending of the illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard “a fundamentally racist tactic,” while U.S. Sens. Ed Markey (D-MA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) called it “cruel.”
It’s a stance, though, that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense given these Democrats’ support of open border policies.
Abbott spokeswoman Renae Eze, responded, “instead of complaining about fulfilling their sanctuary city promises, these Democrat hypocrites should call on President Biden to do his job and secure the border — something the President continues failing to do.”
