This is outrageous.
The Biden administration is arranging for migrants to be taken from overwhelmed border towns and dispersed to other areas in the country. is planning to bus migrants from overwhelmed border towns to other areas around the country, some only hours away from the border.
According to the New York Post, the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is planning to use buses to transport migrants so as to ease the pressure mainly felt in border towns. On Monday, Rep. August Pfluger, R-Texas, sent a letter to Mayorkas where he expressed his concerns about his town San Angelo, Texas, receiving an influx of migrants that they don’t have the infrastructure to handle.
An internal DHS document also shows plans for migrants to be taken to Los Angeles, Albuquerque, New Mexico, Houston, Dallas, and other cities.
“San Angelo is a welcoming community,” Pfluger told the Post, “but the locality has not volunteered for this mission, nor are they responsible for the burdens of the border crisis.
“This situation is a direct result of (DHS’s) shortsighted policies that encourage more illegal immigration and the agency’s failure to establish operational control of the southern border,” he continued.
Pfluger also said that local San Angelo law enforcement was the one to let him know about DHS’s plan.
Busing migrants to other areas “will relieve some of the pressure off of the border communities, but then it’s going to create a problem in other communities,” said Robert Beau Nettleton, a county commissioner in Val Verde County, Texas.
“There’s still a lot of people in these bigger cities around the United States that don’t really think that there’s a ‘border issue’ because they’re not dealing with it, but when they start dumping thousands of them in their backyard, then maybe they will understand that there is a problem,” Nettleton continued.
