Republican leaders’ plan to deport individuals north of the border is “playing politics,” according to President Joe Biden, and is “un-American.” He does not want them to interfere with his immigration policy. He stated, “Republicans are playing politics with people and exploiting them as props, rather than working with us on solutions,” during a speech at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute dinner on Thursday night in Washington, D.C. Simply put, what they’re doing is wrong. This is not American. It is careless.

However, he made the comments after Texas Governor Greg Abbott dispatched two buses to Vice President Kamala Harris’ Washington, D.C., home after she said on Sunday that “the border is secure.” He didn’t specifically identify any governors by name.

Additionally, they arrived when Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis flew those who had unlawfully entered the country and landed in Florida to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts and after Abbott bused more than 10,000 people to Washington, D.C., New York City, and Chicago.

Biden stated, “We have a procedure in place to manage people at the border. “We’re aiming to ensure it’s secure, well-organized, and kind.

Republican politicians shouldn’t obstruct that process by engaging in such petty politics. The time has come for Senate Republicans to negotiate a route forward for Americans, immigrants on temporary visas, agricultural laborers, and other important employees. Our rules need to be updated so that employers can find the labor they require and families don’t have to wait decades to reunite.

DeSantis stated, “In Florida, we take what is occurring at the southern border seriously,” at a news conference on Thursday. Because we are not a sanctuary state, we will gladly help transport illegal immigrants to states that are.

He said, “Biden would fly people in the middle of the night and drop them all over this country. No caution was given on any of this. When [Donald] Trump was president, all of those individuals in New York and Washington, D.C., were puffing up their chests and proclaiming how pleased they were to be sanctuary cities. expressing how detrimental having a secure border was.

“They suddenly go bananas and are so furious that this is occurring the minute even a little portion of what those border communities deal with on a daily basis is brought to their front door. It just serves to highlight the sham that is their virtue signaling.

We’re sending migrants to Vice President Harris’ neighborhood, Abbott declared on Thursday, “to demand that the Biden administration do its duty and protect the border.”

Additionally, Abbott shared a video of a guy telling Fox News on the bus ride to the vice president’s house that “everyone believes the border is open.” We enter, therefore it’s open. We enter for free.

“It’s open for people to come in illegally right?” The guy said, “Yes, illegally. That is true, but illegally. We do the same thing because we see on the news that everyone enters illegally.

At a recent campaign rally, Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, a Democrat running for governor of Texas, said that Texas A&M guards were stationed along the border in the counties of Zapata, Webb, and Hidalgo.

After Abbott became the first governor in history to start erecting a wall on Texas land, O’Rourke said to MSNBC that he would tear down the wall being constructed there.

The Republican governors sending buses and aircraft north, according to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, was a “illegal stunt” on Thursday.

Renae Eze, the press secretary for Abbott, responded by releasing a statement in which she said that “the White House is full of a bunch of hypocrites, lead by the Hypocrite-in-Chief who has been flying planeloads of migrants across the country, often in the cover of night.”
