3rd Bus Of Migrants Hits DC-
What were first dubbed a publicity stunt by The White House, has quickly turned into a continuous headliner by Abbott to counter federal immigrant policies amid the current border crisis.
The first bus filled with migrants left a detention center in Donna, Texas on Tuesday and arrived in San Antonio.
The second bus of migrants departed from McAllen, Texas on Wednesday.
Both buses were scheduled to make stops in Austin and San Antonio before arriving in the nation’s capital.

Abbott said he would continue to send buses until President Joe Biden reverses his immigration policies.
“I will not allow our border to be overrun by criminals,” Abbott said during a press conference last week. “Texas is doing what the federal government refuses to do.”
Biden has so far remained mum on the issue, though White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that the president was aware of Gov. Abbott’s plan.
“We are not going to comment on a state-by-state effort,” Psaki said. “The president is, of course, aware of what’s happening in Texas.”
This latest move by Abbott has been widely criticized by Democrats and immigrant rights groups as expected.
“This is not who we are as Americans,” Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) tweeted Wednesday night. “Gov. Abbott is endangering lives with this cynical stunt.”
Abbott has defended his decision, saying that the migrants will be taken care of and that their journey will be “safe and clean.”
“These families coming to our nation’s capital are not criminals,” he said. “They are not drug smugglers or human traffickers.”
The governor added that the migrants would be dropped off at bus stations and not released into the city.
“We will continue to provide updates as we have them,” Abbott said. “This is a humanitarian crisis, and Texas will not turn its back on those in need.”
As the third bus of migrants arrives in Washington D.C., many are wondering what the consequences of this decision will be. While some argue that it is still a publicity stunt by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, others believe that it could help put pressure on President Joe Biden to reverse his immigration policies.

Big League Politics will continue its coverage of these migrant bus drop-offs as more information emerges. For now, it’s important to note that this ongoing story has made headlines from various corporate press outlets throughout the duration of this week.
Clearly this “publicity stunt” is working in some capacity-signaling to those who continue to mock it that the current border crisis won’t go away on its own.
