Guess the ancient question, “is that a threat or a promise,” has now been answered in at least one context.
Texas begins dispatching buses to the border to transport illegal immigrants to DC
The Texas Division of Emergency Management tells Fox News Digital each bus can ‘carry up to 40 migrants’
Texas has dispatched buses to the southern border to retrieve illegal immigrants after Gov. Greg Abbott said this week that he planned to send those released in his state to the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
Within the last 24 hours, the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) has dispatched an unspecified number of buses to small Texas communities that are said by officials to be overwhelmed by an influx of migrants placed there by the federal government.
“In the last 24 hours, TDEM has dispatched buses to areas where communities have expressed concerns about the federal government dropping off migrants and has the capability to send as many as is necessary to fulfill the requests from mayors and county judges,” Seth Christensen, chief of media and communications for TDEM, told Fox News Digital.
Sweet as all that undoubtedly is, it gets even sweeter.
Christensen also said the majority of areas in the state that expressed concern over the large numbers of illegal immigrants being placed in their communities now say the federal government has “stopped dropping migrants in their towns” since Abbott’s announcement.
“From the [Rio Grande Valley] to Terrell County, a large majority of the communities that originally reached out for support through this operation have now said that the federal government has stopped dropping migrants in their towns since the governor’s announcement on Wednesday,” he said.
Well, howzabout that: as with an unruly puppy, all FederalGovCo really needed to make it straighten up and fly right again was a good, firm smack on the nose. More hilarity from PJM.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wasn’t bluffing when he said he would bus illegal aliens dropped off by the federal government in small Texas communities to Washington, D.C. Apparently, DHS simply dropped the illegals off without warning and without asking permission. Many Texas towns were blindsided by Joe Biden’s “catch and release” policy and were begging Abbott for help.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki whined that Abbott’s voluntary bus rides were a “publicity stunt.” Well, duh. But immediately after Abbott’s announcement, the federal government stopped dropping illegal aliens in the towns that had been pleading for help.
Senator Ted Cruz thought Abbott’s idea was so good he introduced legislation to expand the illegal alien transport program to what he considered to be other rich, Democratic enclaves.
Those enclaves include Martha’s Vinyard, Palo Alto, CA, Greenwich, CT, Scarsdale, NY—all wretched hives of shitlib villainy, thus deserving of having a few busloads of illegal aliens dumped at their doorstep. The wrap-up:
Abbott feels backed into a corner by the Democratic president. His choice is to fight the government using the tools of insurrection — publicity stunts and economic disruption. It’s all he has left before the human tidal wave is upon his state.
Ahh, but see how easy it is? All it took was just a small dose of tit-for-tat to get the goobermint to back down. Not to say they won’t try to wait Abbott out a while, to later on resume their on-the-sneak skullduggery when they figure attention has waned and they can get away with it. At which point Abbott must get his Wetback Coach Express Lines on the road again right away, perhaps even double down and escalate things in some way. And then, should that fail, I can think of a few other, less subtle “tools of insurrection” that might be resorted to in a pinch.
Good on ya, Governor Abbott. Your move now, Gov DeSantis. Make us all proud.
[…] Abbott follows through — […]
One thing is funny Blacks and Hispanics don’t get along. They are fighting for turf in ALL cities. It is a real laugh that they are backing leaving the gate open to be overwhelmed
Not in the formerly black neighborhoods of Los Angeles. The Mexican gangs conducted a rather thorough ethnic cleansing there.
He’s also slow walking trucks – https://bayourenaissanceman.blogspot.com/2022/04/a-new-way-to-stem-illegal-alien-tide.html
Heh… About time.
I’ve never understood why Blacks always go democrat. These ‘immigrants’ knock them off the bottom rung of the ladder – and always have. Each wave – Vietnamese, indians, pakis, even Africans. To them, whatever is here isn’t as hard work as where they came from. I had a vietnamese co worker (back in the 80s) tell me, “This country is great. The harder you work, the more money you make, and no one screws with you”. They don’t even speak english that well, but somehow they figure it out. Makes no sense that they vote against their interests.
Let me know when the buses actually drop off the illegals in DC. Then I’ll say he is following through.
Here t’is, Skeptic:
From the NY Post, but there are lots of others. Which kinda surprises me, I must say.
“which carried 14 illegal immigrants”
14 & 24 = 38
Tens of thousands crossing and 38 are sent to DC.
Smoke. Abbot is worthless.
There’s not enough buses in Texas to do the job. Just smoke.
It apparently took just a few busloads to put the point across. Apparently there are quite a few non-Hispanics coming across – I’d send them to Los Angeles…
When will Cooper start doing the same thing?
I crack me up.
They stole it for him just so that he could be a block to anything effective happening here for the 4 years. Or beyond.
Yea, no question Cooper stole it. Of course, the repuklican was as worthless as they come, so really, no great loss.
As Don Rickles used to say, “Forest, you hockey puck”.
As dumb as a piece of molded hard rubber and smacked around his whole existence.
