Texas Governor Greg Abbott touted the early success of his plan to begin busing illegal immigrants to Washington D.C.  and suggested that President Biden’s home state of Delaware could also become a destination for the resettlement efforts.

On Monday, the Lone Star State Republican appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” where he talked with host Sean Hannity about the relocation of the migrants from his state to the area where their greatest champions reside on a part-time basis, with more buses arriving daily as well as the ongoing crisis at the nation’s southern border.

Last week, Abbott delivered on his pledge to begin sending the illegals to D.C. in advance of the Biden administration’s formal ending of Title 42, the emergency health order put into place due to the COVID pandemic, which will be rescinded in May, resulting in swarms of people who are expected to overwhelm the border, stretching resources to the breaking point.

Hannity noted that in many ways, Abbott’s hands are tied to “stop Joe Biden from aiding and abetting the lawbreaking” but that he loves the idea of sending busloads of illegals to the heart of the swamp, jabbing White House press secretary Jen Psaki who claimed that the governor was aiding them in getting to their final destination in more of her snarky spin last week.

“We keep coming up with new ideas to do the federal government’s job, you know, Sean, it’s an atrocity that we have a president of the United States that is not securing the border,” replied Abbott.

“And he is violating the laws passed by Congress to secure the border and 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 list to come into the United States of America,” he continued, pointing out that they were the ones who were apprehended and that others evaded capture because of “paper processing” from the Border Patrol.

“So what the president is doing is outrageous and, as a result, Texas is taking unprecedented action, as we’re speaking right now Sean, the seventh bus is en route from Texas to Washington, D.C.,” Abbott said. “This busing process is going to continue, I want you and the audience to know exactly why we are doing what we are doing.”

He said that the Biden administration has been dropping off illegals in small towns on the border, emphatically stating that “we are not going to allow that to happen” and that “people in local communities were overrun,” leading to his decision to bus them to the doorsteps of the U.S. Capitol.

Noting that the Border Patrol is no longer conducting drop-offs in the affected local communities, Abbott also updated Hannity and his audience on the truck inspections at the border which Psaki claimed were causing inflation and supply chain problems.

Hannity then asked, “Will you send every illegal immigrant in the state of Texas to Washington, D.C.?”

“We are going to load them up and send them to Washington, D.C.,” Abbott replied, adding, “If we run out of room there, Delaware looks like a great location.”

Whether Gov. Abbott follows through on his great idea remains to be seen but nothing would get Biden’s attention faster than busloads of migrants being dropped off directly in front of his Delaware home.
