Texas Governor Abbott continues to make good on his plan of busing migrants from Texas to DC.
I know this is being viewed as a publicity stunt by most, even among Republicans, but I think the message is starting to hit home.
After the third and fourth buses showed up this week, people are starting to pay a bit more attention to the problem.
Let’s Be Honest…
Considering thousands of people are crossing the border illegally every day, how much of an impact is sending 50 or a hundred of them to DC really going to have on the problem itself?
Not much, right?
However, this little stunt that Abbott is pulling is getting more and more attention as these buses continue to travel to DC.
One bus was nothing, but now four busloads of illegals have hit DC in just a few days.
Again, this is nothing more than a symbolic gesture of the overall problem, but it will force DC to address the situation every time a bus shows up now.
GOP political consultant Ryan Girdusky stated, “Gov. Abbott’s decision to send migrants to Washington DC is telling conservative voters that red states aren’t going to be the doormat to the failed policies of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
“While the effort purely symbolic, it gives GOP voters hope that the republican governors will fight back.”
The only real problem I have with this is that Abbott is getting volunteers to make the journey rather than having buses lined up at the border to send all of them to DC.
If you really want to send a message, send 2,000 illegals a day to flood the streets of DC.
That would really be a message that Joe and Company could not ignore.
