A state governor has criticized Texas Governor Greg Abbott over his actions in handling migrants. Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro said Abbott’s actions show a lack of integrity and are unlawful.
On November 15, Governor Abbott’s first bus of migrants arrived in Philadelphia. Since April last year, he began bussing migrants to Washington, D.C., New York City, and Chicago.
At first, the initial idea was to show President Joe Biden the migrant crisis he was dealing with. Then he sent migrants to other sanctuary cities.
Philadelphia is a welcoming city and has accepted the migrants as they arrived.
Last year when he was running for governor, Josh Shapiro said in an interview:
“Through multiple Republican and Democratic administrations, the federal government has repeatedly failed to pass comprehensive immigration reform and fix our broken immigration system. There is bipartisan blame to go around and it’s urgent that our representatives in Washington, D.C. work across the aisle to finally do something about this issue.”
“We need comprehensive immigration reform that fixes this system, ensures our communities are safe, and does not leave any state with an oversized responsibility that should be handled by Washington, D.C.”
Democratic Governor Shapiro believes leaders in Washington, D.C. need to do more. Maybe the Annual Mayor’s Conference will identify some ideas to help border and sanctuary cities.
After swearing in for his third term as Governor, Abbott laid out his plan to improve conditions in Texas. Governor Abbott also placed a lot of the blame on President Biden for the border crisis and fentanyl.
Do you think Governor Abbott lacks integrity?
