Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has sent a warning to Democrat President Joe Biden that he may start sending migrant buses to his home state of Delaware.
Abbott made the threat during an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.
The governor was discussing his decision to bus undocumented migrants to Washington, D.C. after they’d been released into Texas.
Abbott has already sent several buses to D.C. and dropped illegal border crossers off near the U.S. Capitol.
He puts the blame for his extraordinary move on President Biden for not securing the border.
In a direct warning to Biden, Abbott said he will start sending the migrants to Delaware instead of the nation’s capital.
“Delaware looks like a great location,” he said.
“We have a president of the United States that is not securing the border,” Abbott told Hannity.
“And he’s violating laws passed by Congress to secure the border.
“Then on top of that, we have a president who is turning a blind eye to a security-based issue by allowing people on the terrorist watch lists to come into the United States of America.”
He told Hannity that a seventh bus is on its way from Texas to Washington, D.C.
“This bussing process is gonna continue,” he warned.
“I want you and the audience to know exactly why we’re doing what we’re doing.
“The Biden administration, they were dropping off illegal immigrants just on small towns on the border.
“And I said, ‘We’re not going to allow that to happen.’
“The people in the local communities were overrun by the people they had dumped off in these local communities.”
Hannity asked Abbott:
“Will you send every illegal immigrant that you find in the state of Texas to Washington, D.C.?”
“We’re gonna load ’em up and send them into Washington, D.C.
“And if we run out of room there, Delaware looks like a great location,” he said.
