Abbott shared the news during an interview on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Tuesday.

“We’re going to keep sending those buses up there until they fully understand and most importantly, Sean, until the Biden administration does its job to enforce the laws concerning the border,” Abbott said.
“We are helping out these small local communities by sending even more buses to these communities and putting these new migrants on the buses and sending them to Washington, DC. And we’re looking at other cities to send them to,” he added.

Abbott also recently responded to the mayor of Washington, D.C., who called for requests for help from the National Guard to assist with migrants.
“Washington D.C. finally understands what Texans have been dealing with every single day, as our communities are overrun by thousands of illegal immigrants,” he stated.

The battle is on and Texas is not backing down on the issue of border security with the Biden administration.
