Earlier this month, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said that he’d be starting to bus people who have entered the country illegally (basically at the Biden administration’s invitation) to the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC. Here’s what Gov. Abbott said:
“To help local officials whose communities are being overwhelmed by hordes of illegal immigrants who are being dropped off by the Biden administration, Texas is providing charter buses to send these illegal immigrants to Washington, DC. We are sending them to the United States Capitol where the Biden administration will be able to more immediately be able to address the needs of the people that they are allowing to come across our border.”
The Biden White House dismissed Gov. Abbott’s comments as a “publicity stunt”:
Official Biden White House policy is to bus and fly thousands of unvetted illegal immigrants to American towns around the country in the dead of night, but Psaki is calling Governor Abbott’s plan to send illegal immigrants to Washington, D.C. a “publicity stunt.”

Fast forward to today, and it depends on what the White House’s definition of “publicity stunt” is:
First Texas bus drops off illegal immigrants blocks from US Capitol in Washington, DC.
Biden refuses to come see the mess he’s made at the border.
So Texas is bringing the border to him.https://t.co/wHZkwnD305

That seems pretty real!
The White House called @GovAbbott's bluff when he said he was going to bus illegal aliens to D.C., calling it a "publicity stunt".
Well, those buses have started arriving in D.C., and Abbott says he has 900 MORE BUSES READY TO GO, ALSO. 😂🏆

Should some of those buses also be sent to Delaware, the Hamptons or Martha’s Vineyard?
