Governor Abbot recently pulled an epic Christmas time prank of Vice President Kamala Harris, President Slow Joe Biden’s border czar who had done…very little in that role. What did he do? He sent her a busload of illegal immigrants. That were dropped off on her doorstep. On Christmas Eve. Fox News Digital, reporting on the incident, said:
Three buses carrying migrants from Texas arrived in Washington, D.C., late Saturday evening, including one which dropped its passengers near the home of Vice President Kamala Harris.
The U.S. Naval Observatory (USNO) is the official residence of the vice president of the United States and the Christmas Eve dropoff is the latest of several instances in which Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has bussed migrants to Washington, D.C.
Well, predictably, that hilarious prank sent the looney left into the stratosphere of anger.
White House assistant press secretary Abdullah Hasan, for example, said “Governor Abbott abandoned children on the side of the road in below freezing temperatures on Christmas Eve without coordinating with any federal or local authorities. This was a cruel, dangerous, and shameful stunt.”
Similarly, a leftie volunteer for the Migrant Solidarity Mutual Aid Network told ABC 7 “it really does show the cruelty behind Gov. Abbott in his insistence on continuing to bus people here without care.” She added that the migrants “don’t have clothes for this kind of weather and they’re freezing.”
Joining in the Abbott-bashing was New York Democrat Rep. Ritchie Torres. Torres blasted Abbott, writing on Twitter that “Governor Abbott claims to be a ‘pro-life Christian’ yet shows no regard for the lives of children left shivering in the freezing cold on Christmas Eve. Dropping off migrants in 18 degree weather is so cruel that it ought to be criminal.”
Making much the same point was Texas Democrat Rep. Joaquin Castro. He slammed Abbott in a tweet as well, writing that “worthless @GovAbbott dropping off people with no money and no means on Christmas Eve in 15 degree weather near the VP’s residence. How Christian of you, Greg Abbott. Being a heartless POS isn’t going to make you the next Republican president.”
Abbott, describing why he sent the illegals to VP Harris’ home in DC in a letter, said:
With cold temperatures gripping Texas, your inaction to secure the southern border is putting the lives of migrants at risk, particularly in the City of El Paso. With thousands of men, women, and children illegally crossing into Texas every day, and with the expectation that those numbers will only increase if Title 42 expulsions end, the state is overburdened as we respond to this disaster caused by you and your administration. Your policies will leave many people in the bitter, dangerous cold as a polar vortex moves into Texas.
This terrible crisis for border communities in Texas is a catastrophe of your own making. These communities and the state are ill-equipped to do the job assigned to the federal government – house the thousands of migrants flooding into the country every day. With perilous temperatures moving into the area, many of these migrants are at risk of freezing to death on city streets.
