Deporting illegal immigrants is now ‘kidnapping,’ but Fox & Friends is skeptical about busing them to DC


The Fox & Friends morning crew weighed in Sunday on Texas Gov. Greg Abbott bussing illegal immigrants to Washington, D.C., to put pressure on the Biden administration to start enforcing U.S. immigration laws and put a stop to the mass of humanity flowing into the state every month from Mexico.

It’s fair to say they were skeptical of the plan’s effectiveness, but primarily because they want Gov. Abbott to be even more provocative and send the illegal immigrants to the San Francisco doorstep of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., or up to Barack Obama’s mansion in Martha’s Vineyard.

Cohost Pete Hegseth suggested that if Abbott’s intent is to force a constitutional crisis, perhaps it would be better to send the migrants back across the border into Mexico, saying that while the Republican governor is getting media attention it’s not the solution if he wants to “stem the tide.”

In noting that Abbott is trying to make a statement, cohost Rachel Campos-Duffy said, “Nancy Pelosi doesn’t live in Washington, D.C., itself. Probably dropping them off in San Francisco, on her doorstep, might make more of a difference. Or dropping them off at Barack Obama’s hometown, or some other hometown where rich people actually live would make a difference.”

“You’re dropping them off at the steps of the Capitol. It looks like they’re getting greeted with a bunch of NGOs who know they know they’re going to arrive and they’re given packets…I’m not sure I get this. I wanted the constitutional crisis that would take this to the Supreme Court so we could get clarity on this,” she continued.

“There’s no doubt they want this ride. This is a voluntary bus ride,” cohost Wull Cain said. “In order for one of those illegal immigrants to get on the bus to Washington, D.C., they have to volunteer to do so.” He also explained to his co-host that it would be “in-essence kidnapping” for Abbott to load immigrants onto buses against their will and have them deported instead.”

As for sending them back to Mexico against their will, Cain suggested that would be “in-essence kidnapping.”

A clip was show of an immigration attorney describing the current scene: “What is happening right now the federal government is failing to completely enforce immigration laws. They’re promoting chaos and lawlessness at the border. Power of the state is limited because the federal law supersedes the state law.”

“It is the federal government that should take the lead in fighting the influx of illegals coming into the United States,” he added. “The federal government itself is enticing them to come to the United States. Unfortunately the governor of Texas is very limited and in doing anything about it.”
