When it comes to Texas, Governor Greg Abbott will do something to get the people talking. Governor Abbott is trying to remove illegal immigrants from the state. However, questions have been raised about where he is sending. According to ABC13 News, Governor Abbott has announced new guidelines as part of the state’s border security efforts.
Governor Abbott has instructed the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to introduce a zero-tolerance policy for “unsafe” vehicles, which could also lead to immigration trafficking. The policy, implemented at 4 p.m. Wednesday, states that DPS will conduct increased security inspections of vehicles in question crossing the border into Texas. Governor Abbott has instructed the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to hire buses to send migrants to the nation’s capital, Washington, DC.
At a news conference, Governor Abbott said, “To help local officials whose communities are being overwhelmed by illegal immigrants who are being evicted by the Biden administration, Texas is providing charter buses to send these illegal immigrants to the Biden administration in Washington DC.”
He continued, “We are sending them to the United States Capital where the Biden administration will be able to address the needs of the people more quickly as they allow us to cross our borders.” The report said Texas Division of Emergency Management Chief Nim Kidd said there would be more than 900 buses in the state for the operation.
Governor Abbott’s announcement is a direct response to the administration’s decision to restore an epidemic-era emergency health order known as Title 42. Title 42 allows immigration authorities to repatriate migrants at the border, even asylum seekers. To break this, an order issued during the administration of former President Donald Trump allowed immigration authorities to handle the number of immigrants trying to enter the country. Roommates, do you think this is the right thing to do?
