Greg Abbott is trying really hard to be the most hated Governor in America, although Ron DeSantis is holding very tightly to that beer while Doug Ducey keeps bumping against him with his full weight to knock it out of his hand. Aside from taking away all body autonomy from people who have a uterus, Abbott also enjoys such recreational activities as letting anyone have a gun for any reason while also not providing his constituents with proper heating during ice storms because TEXANS DON’T NEED NO FANCY PAWR GRID FROM UP NORTH or whatever.
But how could Texas get any worse, you may ask? Did you forget about that pesky border they share with Mexico? Yeah, and the fence or the gate or something was supposed to keep all the people with brown skin who don’t speak English away from the purity of the Texas whitefolks, right? Yeah, that’s still a major thing that’s in effect, and now that the Biden Administration is acting all humane (HOW DARE THEY) by rolling back Title 42, even more of those people might want to come here, bwuh oh! It’s like someone put up a statue representing liberty inviting everyone from everywhere to come here, because it’s better than where they’re from. But is it, when Greg “Gatekeeper AND Keymaster” Abbott is just going to put them on school buses and send them off to Washington, DC? Because that’s what he’s planning on doing now.
Abbott is doing that dumb bully thing where he’s like, “If you love migrants so much, you can have ALL of them!” Except that’s not how American immigration policies work. Guess what, Greg? Some of the people crossing the border have specific destinations in mind because they already have family or someone else waiting for them. Or maybe they’ve always dreamed of living in California or New York City or anywhere else in the LAND OF THE FREE, you xenophobic jerkface.

Ok, this is actually what he said, but if you know anything about Republicans, the subtext is pretty obvs. “To help local officials whose communities are being overwhelmed by hordes of illegal immigrants who are being dropped off by the Biden administration, Texas is providing charter buses to send these illegal immigrants who have been dropped off by the Biden administration to Washington D.C.,” Abbott said in a press conference in Weslaco.”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.”

First of all, the Biden Administration isn’t “dropping off” anyone anywhere, and certainly not “hordes” of them. And to say you’re going to bus people across state lines without their consent is basically asking to be arrested for human trafficking, but since Greg Abbott is a white male Republican, he’ll get public support instead of prison time.

It was also very hard to write this without using all of the swear words against Greg Abbott, I’ll just say that.
