1. $1,400 per migrant

I'm pretty sure that Greyhound would transport them for under 300 dollars.

2. Not just that, it drums up hate in DC NY sand IL

I know the nazi running against Governor Pritzker will use it. He still doesn’t have a chance. But the state legislature and the state Supreme Court are in play in IL and drumming up hate does often work.

3. As a NYer, I'd say lots of those people would end up in NY anyway. This just gives them a ride.

If the bus is nice for them, I'm all for it.

Unlike Texas, apparently, we're not afraid of Latinos here.

4. Fingers crossed Chicago will welcome them, too. But racism is bad

5. They should swear them in as citizens, register them to vote as Democrats, and send back to TX.

That would be one idea.

7. This is actually very good for the immigrants

the asylum courts in Texas reject nearly 80% of all cases. The rejection rate in the DC court is about 20%.

So Abbott is actually making it easier for these immigrants to stay in America - which is a good thing.

8. No matter what Biden (or any Democrat) does

it will never be enough unless they basically adopt the same cruel measures that Trump and Miller supported but maybe not even then. The funny part is that the GOP has been putting out lots of tweets about how successful Biden has been at securing the border, albeit unintentionally.
