Texas Governor Greg Abbott vowed he would send “even more buses” of migrants to Washington, D.C. if the Biden administration proceeds with a reported “scam” of a plan to keep the border jumpers in Texas.
The Republican governor made the promise on X, in response to a Los Angeles Times report that revealed, “The Biden administration is considering forcing some migrant families who enter the country without authorization to remain near the border in Texas while awaiting asylum screening, effectively limiting their ability to travel within the United States, three U.S. officials told The Times.”
“Biden considers forcing migrant families to remain in Texas. This scam was tried years ago & was shot down by a judge,” Abbott fumed. “We will send Biden the same swift justice. And, we will add even more buses of migrants to Washington D.C.”

According to The Times, “The Biden plan would force certain migrant families to remain in Texas — or possibly other border states — by tracking their location through GPS monitoring devices, such as ankle bracelets, according to the three officials, who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.”
“The families would be put through an asylum screening process to determine whether they could stay in the U.S. and proceed with their claims. Officials have discussed working with local organizations to provide housing for the families,” the report explains. “If the families failed their initial screenings, they’d be easier to deport because they’d be close to the border.”
In the late 1980s, then-President Ronald Reagan tried a similar plan to limit the movement of asylum seekers, the outlet states.
The Times continues:
Department of Homeland Security officials have discussed targeting Central American families in the program, because those are countries where the U.S. can deport significant numbers of people.
“DHS continuously holds policy and operational discussions on how to leverage our authorities to ensure a fair, humane and effective immigration process that efficiently removes those without a lawful basis to stay in the country,” a department spokesperson said.
If implemented, the plan would mark the latest expansion of a Biden administration program known as Family Expedited Removal Management, which imposes curfews and GPS monitoring on migrant families traveling to large cities, including Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington.
If confirmed, the move by the Biden administration would come at a time when liberal leaders from so-called “sanctuary cities” such as New York City are pleading for federal help to deal with the flood of migrants.

The Biden administration “is committed to expanding safe and orderly pathways for migrants to lawfully enter the United States, while imposing consequences to those who fail to use those pathways,” a DHS spokesperson said in response to The Times’ report, according to Fox News Digital.
“Since May 2023, DHS has removed or returned over 200,000 individuals, including over 17,000 individual family unit members,” the spokesperson said. “DHS continuously holds policy and operational discussions on how to leverage our authorities to ensure a fair, humane, and effective immigration process that efficiently removes those without a lawful basis to stay in the country.”
As BizPac Review reported, a desperate New York City Mayor Eric Adams told his constituents at an Upper West Side Town Hall meeting on Wednesday that the migrant crisis will destroy the Big Apple.
“Let me tell you something, New Yorkers: Never in my life have I had a problem that I did not see an ending to,” he said. “I don’t see an ending to this. I don’t see an ending to this. This issue will destroy New York City. Destroy New York City. We’re getting 10,000 migrants a month.”
“We got a $12 billion deficit that we’re going to have to cut,” Adams warned. “Every service in this city is going to be impacted, all of us.”
Abbott has made multiple headlines for loading up busses with migrants and sending them to liberal-led cities such as Chicago and Los Angeles, and to the very doorstep of Vice President Kamala Harris in Washington, D.C.

In May, Abbott boasted on X that he had sent “over 17,000 migrants to sanctuary cities.”
“We will continue to provide this critical support to our overwhelmed Texas border towns,” he vowed, “until Biden secures the border.”
Texas has bused over 17,000 migrants to sanctuary cities:
▪️ Over 9,200 to DC
▪️ Over 5,700 to NYC
▪️ Over 1,600 to Chicago
▪️ Over 925 to Philadelphia
