Texas governor to bus migrants entering his state to D.C. to address border surge

By Jennie Taer

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Wednesday that he would charter buses to send migrants entering his state to Washington, D.C. to address the expected border surge when Title 42 ends.

“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 during a press conference.

Title 42, a Trump-era public health order put in place to control the spread of COVID-19 that has expelled over one million migrants since the beginning of the pandemic, will end May 23, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Friday.

“We are sending them to the United States Capitol, 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,” Abbott said.

Abbott signed a letter during the announcement addressed to Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) Chief Nim Kidd, who is charged with the busing operation.

Since March 2021, the governor has reinforced the Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Military Department in what he dubbed “Operation Lone Star.” During Wednesday’s press conference, Abbott pledged to ramp up the effort’s abilities to interdict illegal activity through vehicle inspections as they expect increases in migration.

  1. The Democrats taking over the federal government in 2020, and the out-of-control deficit spending, which caused high inflation rates BEFORE Ukraine events, has and will cause huge damage to the US, from which it will be difficult to recover

    A good example of damage is the outrageous, country-destroying, “just walk-in, anybody-from-anywhere-is-welcome” southern border, to purposely change the demographics of the US in favor of Dem/Progs

    The electricity black-out problem Texas experienced, due to a cold spell a year ago, lasting just a few days, compared to FOUR years of open borders, is like a mouse to an elephant.

    It is absolutely imperative to vote these incompetent, socialistic, communistic, un-American imposters out of office in November 2022

    We have to:

    1) Turn out EN MASSE, to offset any and all election shenanigans, perpetrated by desperate Democrats, to hold on to power, plus

    2) Enough people must turn out to witness and record, on audio/video, any and all suspicious election events, AROUND THE CLOCK; give them no breathing space.

    We have to:

    1) Ban ballot drop boxes to reduce fraud opportunities, as was done in Wisconsin. See URL

    2) Ban universal mail-in voting to reduce fraud opportunities

    3) Sanitize the registered voter lists, to eliminate counting votes of people who: 1) are dead, 2) who never existed, 3) who moved out of state, 4) who are illegal, 5) who are underage, 6) who are convicted felons, 7) who are registered, but almost never vote. Just make up a whole lot of fictitious names. and vote them as well, as was done in Arizona. See URLs


    4) Ban universal ballot harvesting by shady Dem/Prog operatives, at a cost of $10/ballot, and deposit the harvested ballots in unsupervised ballot drop boxes.

    “Elected” Democrats would be seated, before any entity could find out what happened to have a proper court case, several months later

    5) In Democrat-controlled cities “vote counting” is done primarily in Democrat-dominated vote-counting centers, staffed by “trusted” Democrat operatives.

    6) Require official voter photo ID, and unique voter number ID, such as driver license, social security number, etc.

    7) All “vote counting centers” must be staffed with an equal number of Republican and Democrat vote counters and observers.

    These are the most egregious election system flaws, that enabled the Democrats to get “elected” in 2020, and likely in prior elections as well.

    This THIRD WORLD sordidness of US elections has to end, before it will totally ruin democracy in the US

    • Agree fully with your recommendations to ensure a fair democratic vote. I would also add a few points:

      8) Absentee ballots should be requested by a notarized request form, or in person, where a valid state ID can be demonstrated. The ballot should be sent with a registered return receipt for security and proof of delivery.

      9) All ballots, in person or absentee ballots, should be made with security features such as watermarks, serial numbers, high grade paper, similar to how our currency is printed.

      Also, why hasn’t anyone pointed out that the current mail-in ballots violate our constitutional right to having PRIVACY? Your name and signature are on the envelope, so obviously whoever opens it can see how you voted. If they don’t like how you vote, you may lose your job, be persecuted, or worse.

  2. Sounded good at first blush until it was discovered this was going to be a VOLUNTARY PROGRAM. SERIOUSLY???
