He REALLY is asking Biden to give him money to cover the Texas tax payers costs for his political stunt????
This guy REALLY has ‘balls’
Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas said Sunday during President Joe Biden’s visit to the border that the state “desperately needs more money” to address the issue.
After meeting with Biden, Abbott took questions from reporters, with one asking if he planned to ask the federal government to send Texas additional funds to help address the historic surge in illegal immigration.
“One hundred percent. Texas desperately needs more money,” Abbott said. “I know the Republicans in the US House have committed to providing Texas the money that we need. We just finished over the past two years spending 4 billion of Texas taxpayer dollars for Texas to fill the gap caused by the Biden administration.”…
In April, Abbott began chartering buses to drop off migrants in other parts of the country, like Washington, DC, and Chicago, without giving those cities any notice — a program that Texas has spent millions of dollars on.
Texas had spent $12 million on the efforts as of August, the Texas Tribune reported at the time. By November, the amount spent busing migrants out of state had risen to $20 million, according to the local outlet WFAA.
