Abbott Accuses Biden of Using Immigrants for Political Gain

Governor Greg Abbott of Texas criticized President Joe Biden, accusing him of treating immigrants as “political pawns” once they enter the United States.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Abbott discussed his recent visit to New York, where Mayor Eric Adams reported a significant influx of 157,000 immigrants between 2022 and 2023.

Abbott clarified that although he has transported immigrants from Texas to the sanctuary city, the number sent is relatively small compared to the total number arriving.

Abbott pointed fingers at President Biden, alleging that Biden’s open border policies are aimed at pleasing the far-left faction of the Democratic Party, including figures like Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Abbott claimed that Biden’s policies are detrimental to the nation while trying to gain support from certain political groups.

New York has received more than 40,600 immigrants transported from Texas since August 2022. Meanwhile, Texas has been grappling with a significant influx of illegal immigration.

Abbott’s immigration policies are currently facing legal challenges from Biden’s Department of Justice. Despite this, Abbott remains confident that his laws will prevail in court.

Recent data shows that over 137,000 illegal immigrants were apprehended at the southern border last month alone, adding to the more than 10 million immigrants who have reportedly entered the country illegally since Biden assumed office.

This marks a significant increase compared to previous administrations.
