First migrant bus from Texas arrives in DC, drops them blocks from Capitol


The first bus filled with dozens of illegal immigrants from Texas arrived in Washington, DC, Wednesday, one week after Gov. Greg Abbott vowed to transport migrants in the US illegally to the nation’s capital as the immigration crisis along the southern border grows.

The bus arrived in Washington around 8 a.m., parking blocks away from the US Capitol in front of the building that houses Fox News, NBC News and C-SPAN.

The migrants exited the bus one by one, except for family units that left together, according to Fox News, whose cameras captured the arrival live. Officials cut off wristbands before the migrants were released.

To help local officials — because communities are being overwhelmed by hordes of illegal immigrants who are being dropped off by the Biden Administration — Texas is providing charter buses for these illegal immigrants who have been dropped off to Washington, DC,” Abbott said in announcing the move last week
