CPAC 2022: Texas governor brags about busing migrants to Washington D.C.
DALLAS - Gov. Greg Abbott boasted about why so many people are leaving states like California and coming to Texas.
He was one of the feature speakers on the first day of the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas.
He called on congressional Republicans to impeach President Joe Biden’s Homeland Security secretary if they retake Congress in the fall elections.
He also said Texas has packed up and taken more than 6,500 migrants from the southern border to Washington D.C. by bus.
"They cannot handle that one single challenge. We deal with that same number every single day. I got one thing to tell you and tell them – there are more buses on the way as we gather at this conference today," Abbott said.
