The migrants were sent to New York City, Washington DC and Chicago.
AUSTIN, Texas – According to a recent press release from the Office of the Governor of Texas, Operation Lone Star has sent more than 10,000 migrants from Texas to various cities across the United States.
Gov. Greg Abbott, in cooperation with the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas National Guard, is trying to secure the border by “stop.”[ping] prevent and detect the smuggling of drugs, weapons and people into Texas, and deter cross-border criminal behavior between ports of entry,” the press release said.
To support these efforts, these three agencies launched Operation Lone Star, which has resulted in more than 302,600 migrant arrests and 19,700 criminal arrests. Of those arrests, 17,200 were felonies.
Another part of Operation Lone Star drives migrants to various cities in the United States. Since the beginning of the bus more than:
- 7,900 migrants have been transported to Washington DC since April
- Since August, 2,200 migrants have been brought to New York City
- Over 300 migrants have been brought to Chicago since August 31
“Operation Lone Star continues to fill in the dangerous gaps left by the Biden administration’s refusal to secure the border,” Abbott was quoted as saying in the press release. “Every person who is arrested or arrested and every ounce of drugs seized would otherwise have arrived in communities across Texas and across the nation because of President Biden’s open borders policy.”
The DPS has seized over 340.5 million lethal doses of fentanyl during that time.
