As the American immigration crisis continues to spill over into border towns in the southwest, local lawmakers are doing everything that they can in order raise awareness of the problem.
You see, cities far away from the border, (and cities that lean left on the political spectrum), don’t seem to give the border crisis the sort of gravity that it has earned, and his has folks like the Governor of Texas resorting to extreme advocacy measures in order to make a point.
A bus carrying migrants departed Tuesday from Texas and is expected to arrive in Philadelphia, the latest city targeted by Gov. Greg Abbott as a drop-off point for illegal immigrants in an effort to bring attention to the Biden administration’s border policies.
Abbott has already sent hundreds of buses with illegal immigrants to Chicago, New York City and Washington, D.C., in recent months.
“Since April, Texas’ busing strategy has successfully provided much-needed relief to our border communities overwhelmed by the historic influx of migrants caused by President Biden‘s reckless open border policies,” Abbott said in a statement.
Abbott explained his reasoning succinctly.
Until the Biden Administration does its job and provides Texans and the American people with sustainable border security, Texas will continue doing more than any other state in the nation’s history to defend against an invasion along the border, including adding more sanctuary cities like Philadelphia as drop-off locations for our busing strategy,” he added.
The migrants will be dropped off at the William H. Gray III 30th Street Station in Philadelphia on Wednesday morning, Abbott said.
“Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has long-celebrated and fought for sanctuary city status, making the city an ideal addition to Texas’ list of drop-off locations,” a news release from the governor’s office said.
The news comes just weeks after a similarly-planned arrival of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard that, when the cameras turned off, exposed the liberal enclave’s bias against the travelers, and exposing their clandestine cruelty.
