Texas to send buses of undocumented immigrants to US capital if they’re willing to go, Gov. Greg Abbott says

Texas will send willing undocumented immigrants to Washington, DC, by bus and plane, Gov. Greg Abbott’s office announced Wednesday, saying local leaders in the state are fed up with the federal government for releasing migrants into their communities.

Abbott told reporters the plan is a response to the Biden administration’s recent announcement that it will be lifting a pandemic public health order next month, a decision that could significantly increase the number of migrants crossing the border. The order, known as Title 42, has effectively blocked most migrants from entering the US and seeking asylum for more than two years.

Abbott’s announcement took widespread Republican criticism of the move a step further. And the governor said the plan to transport migrants out of Texas was one of a number of steps he intends to take.

Abbott has directed the Texas Division of Emergency Management to charter buses and flights that would send to Washington willing migrants who’ve been processed and released from federal custody, his office said.
