El Paso, Texas, is plagued by 1,500 illegal migrants daily. Border Patrol agents along just one sector of the southern border are encountering approximately 1,500 illegal migrants each day, despite ongoing controversies over transporting a fraction of those numbers to more liberal areas in the United States.
Although Biden discusses the migrant crisis, he does not discuss the border crisis. An administration official stated on Thursday that the Biden administration is continuing to keep a close eye on the prospect of Republican governors secretly bringing groups of migrants to Democratic areas. The official was speaking on behalf of the government.
Republicans want a secure border. Republican governors like Texas’ Greg Abbott and, more recently, Florida’s Ron DeSantis have made a habit of moving migrants from their Sun Belt states to northern Democratic-voting areas. While their judgments may have policy justifications, there are also apparent political motives.
