Gov. Greg Abbott has reportedly sent a total of 10 buses carrying undocumented migrants to Washington, D.C. in April, with the latest arriving Thursday. However, despite the Republican leader lauding the initiative, the number of transported migrants doesn’t appear to be that impactful for Texas.
Abbott’s office told the New York Post Wednesday that, so far, only 152 migrants have been transported to Washington, D.C. from the Lone Star State, amounting to an average of 19 migrants per bus. Each bus has been said to have the capacity to hold up to 40 migrants, though Abbott’s office did not confirm how many migrants traveled during each trip.
