The poll from Rasmussen Reports found that “52% of Likely U.S. voters approve of Abbott’s policy, including 36% who Strongly Approve”.

Additionally, 39%of likely voters say they disapprove of the move, “including 25% who Strongly Disapprove of Abbott’s policy”.

On September 15, another round of illegal migrants was bussed out to Washington D.C., this time outside of Kamla Harris’s home.

After Texas Governor Abbott’s move, other state governors decided to follow a similar policy including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis by sending illegal migrants to the wealthy town of Martha’s Vinyard.

Florida Governor DeSantis said that “We are not a sanctuary state and it’s better to be able to go to a sanctuary jurisdiction. […] Biden would fly people in the middle of the night, dump them all across this country.”


However, in just under 24 hours Martha’s Vineyard begin removing the migrants sent off of the island.

Similarly, Chicago moved the illegal immigrants sent from Texas to Chicago to suburbs outside of the county.
