Biden Admin Plans to Send Migrants to Cities Deeper Inside US
The Department of Homeland Security is planning to transport migrants from U.S. cities along the southern border to other parts of the country.
The goal of the plan is to alleviate overcrowding along the border due to the record numbers of migrants.
The new plan will use federal funds to send migrants to shelters in cities farther inside the country before going to their final destinations.
The plan includes sending migrants to cities such as Los Angeles, Albuquerque, New Mexico, Houston, and Dallas.
DHS is currently working with shelters in these cities to advance moving migrants.
DHS officials have jokingly referred to the model as the “Abbott plan,” an official said, referring to Texas Gov. Abbott’s decision to bus migrants from Texas to D.C.
