Migrants bused in by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott arrived in Washington, D.C. Wednesday and Thursday, and were greeted by the rampant homelessness in the nation’s capital.
The migrants arrived at Union Station, an area of D.C. that has become a tent city where nearly two dozen homeless people reside.
Abbott announced April 6 that he would charter buses to send migrants to Washington, D.C. in the wake of the Biden administration’s decision to end Title 42, a pandemic health policy responsible for the expulsion of over one million migrants.
“We are sending them to the United States Capitol, where the Biden administration will be able to more immediately address the needs of the people that they are allowing to come across our border,” Abbott said at a press conference announcing the decision.
