Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) announced he will send the first bus full of immigrants to Philadelphia, adding the sanctuary city as another destination for the buses.

The Republican said in a press release Tuesday that the buses have been providing much-needed relief to Texan communities near the southern border since he began transporting immigrants elsewhere in April.

TEXAS SENDS 300TH BUS OF IMMIGRANTS TO CHICAGO

"Until the Biden Administration does its job and provides Texans and the American people with sustainable border security, Texas will continue doing more than any other state in the nation's history to defend against an invasion along the border, including adding more sanctuary cities like Philadelphia as drop-off locations for our busing strategy," Abbott wrote in the release.

The immigrants heading to Philadelphia will be dropped off at William H. Gray III 30th Street Station on Wednesday morning, Abbott said.

"Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has long-celebrated and fought for sanctuary city status, making the city an ideal addition to Texas' list of drop-off locations," he added.

 Abbott has already bused immigrants to sanctuary cities New York City, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. He sent his 300th bus on Nov. 11, with Chicago as its destination. Abbott, who defeated Beto O'Rourke this week and secured a third term as governor, made headlines in September after sending buses of immigrants to the nation's capital, particularly when the buses dropped them outside the home of Vice President Kamala Harris.

Other Republican governors have been sending immigrants to liberal enclaves, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), in a bid to draw attention to the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border. In fiscal 2022, U.S. officials reported more than 2 million encounters at the southern border.

I see where Mexico has used Philly in an anti-drug ad.

Priceless!

Abbott and DeSantis need to continue to send migrants to Democratic sanctuaries.

Let's give Democrats what they really want more of.

Every time these mayors complain about receiving immigrants, it puts the spotlight on Biden and his horrible (although admittedly, mainly absent) policies.

Not that Democrats can see the reality or recognize the damage.

And Dems all over and politicians in those cities bitch about it.

Funny as hell.

You'd think he'd show some gratitude. Maybe a "Thank You" note. Or he could pay for gas.

The Philly meat processors probably need the labor, too.

Isn’t sending poor immigrants to democrat run shit holes borderline cruel and inhumane punishment?
