The migrant busing policy, which Abbott started as a way to antagonize the White House over its border policies, appears to be catching on among other GOP governors. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis chartered two planes of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday.
Muriel Bowser will open a $10 million office to provide services to the migrants arriving as part of Gov. Greg Abbott’s busing program.
The policy is an expansion of the governor’s plan to antagonize President Joe Biden over border security by busing migrants entering Texas to Washington, D.C., but research suggests the policy could allow more migrants to stay in the country even longer.
