"Until the President and his Administration step up and fulfill their constitutional duty to secure the border, Texas will continue busing migrants to self-declared 'Sanctuary Cities' like Denver to provide much-needed relief to our small border towns."
– Governor Greg Abbott
Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – Governor Greg Abbott announced earlier today that the first group of migrants being bused from Texas to the city of Denver, Colorado had arrived in "The Mile-High City," and were being dropped off near Civic Center Park at 14th Street and Court Place this afternoon.
"Texas' overwhelmed and overrun border communities should not have to shoulder the flood of illegal immigration due to President Biden's reckless open border policies, like his mass catch and release without court dates or any way to track them," said Governor Abbott.
"Until the President and his Administration step up and fulfill their constitutional duty to secure the border, the State of Texas will continue busing migrants to self-declared sanctuary cities like Denver to provide much-needed relief to our small border towns."
Since beginning the migrant busing strategy last spring, more than 19,000 migrants have been transported to these self-declared "sanctuary cities," while providing much-needed relief to Texas' overwhelmed Border Communities.
