Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn dropped by Fox & Friends to speak with Steve Doocy about Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s busing policy and the Biden Administration’s total failure at the southern border.
“What we have heard is that they are threatening the drivers from time to time, and they’re wanting to get to where their friends are,” Blackburn told Doocy. “They look at this Steve, as a safe passage, if you will, across the country because they’re being given that free bus ride to wherever they want to go. And, of course, the sanctuary city policies that many cities across the country have, these large, big blue cities, not Chattanooga, but they have set up – the cartels have been free to kind of set up shop.”
“They have their hubs,” she continued. “That’s where your gangs are located. That’s where the sex trafficking operations are located.”
“Crime has escalated,” Blackburn said. “You look at the crime rates in New York and these sanctuary city mayors who are now complaining, they should be talking to Joe Biden.”
“This is his policy that has caused this, and they have basically rolled out the welcome mat, said we’re going to be a sanctuary city, give benefits, voting rights, privileges of citizenship,” she continued.
“We need to end this and allow our southern border to be secured and give these governors the ability to secure these communities across the southern border,” Blackburn said.
Abbott has bused nearly 6,000 migrants from the southern border to Washington D.C. since April.
