Texas Deploys More Buses To Ship Illegal Immigrants To "At Capacity" Sanctuary Cities

• by Bill Pan

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced on Friday that he has directed the Texas Department of Emergency Management to deploy more buses to Eagle Pass and El Paso to transport those who illegally crossed the Texas-Mexico border to Democrat-led, self-proclaimed "sanctuary cities."

The buses in Eagle Pass and El Paso are being activated in addition to the ongoing state bus operations in Brownsville, Del Rio, Laredo, and McAllen.

"President [Joe] Biden's continued refusal to secure our border allows thousands of people to illegally cross into Texas and our country every day," the Republican governor said, noting that the move provides "much-needed relief" to Texas communities "overwhelmed and overrun" by the border crisis.

"Until President Biden upholds his constitutional duty to secure America's southern border, Texas will continue to deploy as many buses as needed to relieve the strain caused by the surge of illegal crossings."
