Imagine if Donald Trump were busing all these people around.
According to the Washington Times:
The Biden administration is trouncing Texas and Arizona in sheer volume in the battle over busing migrants.
In just a single week in late September, the Department of Homeland Security ran 79 “decompression buses” and made 29 “decompression flights” to shuttle illegal immigrants away from border locations in Arizona and Texas to places where the department said it had more capacity to handle them.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas revealed the numbers in a regulatory filing this week describing his plans to try to deal with Venezuelan migrants.
The busing and flight operation has grown so big that the Homeland Security Department says it has had to siphon manpower away from its regular duties. The department acknowledged that is creating a vicious circle with less enforcement, which invites more illegal immigration, further overwhelming the border and demanding even more resources.
Meanwhile, the department is blasting Republican governors for their migrant-shipping efforts. That was too rich for some of them.
“Correct me if I’m wrong here, but this seems to be a case of ‘do as I say, not as I do,’” said C.J. Karamargin, a spokesman for Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, one of the Republicans who had been transporting migrants out of his state.
