On Monday, Gov. Greg Abbott hit back at sharp criticism from the White House for busting immigrants to Washington, D.C. over the weekend.

“The White House is full of hypocrites led by the best of hypocrites….instead of their hypocritical complaints that Texas will provide our runaway and overwhelmed border communities the relief they desperately need.” In a statement, Lena Eze, spokesperson for President Biden and Border Tsar Harris Abbott, said in a statement that we need to step up and work to secure our borders.

Abbott has regularly bussed immigrants from Texas for months to protest “reckless” federal border policies and to provide “relief” to border communities.

A spokesman for the Texas Emergency Management Agency said in September that the state spent more than $12 million on travel, including chartered buses and security.

The White House on Sunday called the latest bus driving a “brutal, dangerous and shameful stunt.”

On December 24, 2022, a bus full of asylum seekers from Texas was dropped off at the residence of Vice President Kamala Harris in Washington, DC.

Aid worker Amy Fisher, who was outside Harris’ residence at the Naval Observatory, said the 139 migrants, including many families, arrived in three buses late Saturday, none of whom were wearing winter gear. said there wasn’t. The temperature was in the teens.

Fisher told ABC News that people were then taken to a local church.

Abbott spokesperson Eze said in a statement on Monday that people on the bus “chosen to go willingly”, adding that “they agreed on a destination written in multiple languages ​​as they boarded.” I signed a voluntary waiver of consent.”

Eze then redirected the blame to the federal government.

“They were processed and released by the federal government. The federal government is dumping them at historic levels in Texas border towns like El Paso. recently declared a state of emergency,” Eze said.

The White House, meanwhile, said Sunday that it believes political things are still possible.

“As I have said repeatedly, I am willing to work with anyone, Republican or Democrat, on real solutions like comprehensive immigration reform and border security measures that President Biden put before Congress on his first day in office. We are ready to play, but these political games accomplish nothing and only put lives at risk,” spokesman Abdullah Hasan said in a statement.
