Immigrants are sent to liberal areas of the United States

Immigrants are sent to liberal areas of the United States

Already in April, Texas Governor Greg Abbott began busing thousands of people to Democratic-controlled cities, such as Washington, New York and Chicago. The governor wrote on Twitter that he was standing behind the two buses that transported immigrants near Vice President Harris’s Washington residence on Thursday.

“We’re sending immigrants into her backyard to get the Biden administration to do its job and secure the border,” Abbott wrote.

Criticism from the White House

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey also began a similar strategy in May and has since been sending immigrants from Arizona to Washington.

The White House criticized the measure, calling it “cruel” and “disgraceful.”

White House Press Secretary Karen-Jean-Pierre said the use of immigrants as “political pawns” in the illegal immigration debate, ahead of the November midterm elections, is a “premeditated political stunt”.

escalate tactics

The recent move by Florida Governor Ron DeSanti, to send two flights of immigrants from Florida to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, is seen as an escalation of the tactic. It is used to draw attention to the issue of immigration in the United States ahead of the midterm elections in November, which Republicans believe the Democrats and President Joe Biden have mishandled.

Martha’s Vineyard, with a population of about 15,000, is less willing to take in immigrants from big cities like Washington and Chicago, but it has orchestrated quickly to accommodate passengers on the DeSanti plane.

Florida first by planes

Florida is the first state to use aircraft for transportation, and it has committed $12 million to continue transportation.

As long as the people involved indicate that the transition is voluntary, the method is legal.

“Massachusetts, New York, and California will take better care of these individuals, whom we invited into our country by encouraging illegal immigration because they call themselves “safe haven states” and support the Biden administration’s open border policy,” says Taryn Finsky, DeSantis Press Officer.
