DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS: First Migrant Bus Arrives in D.C., Drops Off Just Blocks from U.S. Capitol

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.13.22

Last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced his plan to redirect all Biden Administration migrant drop-offs to Washington D.C., bringing the border to the President’s door step. One week later, the first bus has arrived.

According to Fox News, “The bus pulled up at approximately 8 a.m. local time, blocks away from the U.S. Capitol building. Individuals disembarked one by one except for family units who exited together. They checked in with officials and had wristbands they were wearing cut off before being told they could go.”

“According to the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM), Abbott’s plan is already working. The agency told Fox News on Monday that many of the communities that originally reached out for support – from the Rio Grande Valley to Terrell County – say the federal government stopped dropping immigrants in their towns since Abbott’s announcement on April 6,” Fox added.

“Texans demand and deserve an aggressive, comprehensive strategy to secure our border—not President Biden’s lackluster leadership,” Abbott said in a statement. “As the federal government continues to roll back commonsense policies that once kept our communities safe, our local law enforcement has stepped up to protect Texans from dangerous criminals, deadly drugs, and illegal contraband flooding into the Lone Star State.”

Fox News’ John Roberts shared the bus arrival on Twitter:

“Texas Governor @GregAbbott_TX carries out his pledge to transport illegal migrants to Washington, DC. The bus pulled up right in front of the building that houses @FoxNews , @NBCNews and @cspan”
