Arizona busing migrants to D.C., follows Texas’ lead in sending border woes to Biden’s doorstep:
Arizona has started its own busing campaign to deliver newly arrived illegal immigrants straight to Washington, following in the footsteps of Texas, which pioneered the policy last month.
Gov. Doug Ducey announced the move as part of a broader border security crackdown that includes deploying more National Guard troops and working with ranchers and other landowners to try to secure their property from the onslaught of migrants.
Mr. Ducey’s office confirmed to local news outlets that the first bus arrived Wednesday, carrying 20 people.
The governor said he turned to busing because Arizona’s communities are overwhelmed by the number of illegal immigrants being caught and released, and they aren’t getting much help from the feds.
Migrants who are being shipped to Washington volunteered for the trip, meaning it’s likely they were already headed to the East Coast anyway. Mr. Ducey’s office said they will be fed and will have access to “support” services while on the road.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott pioneered the busing strategy, with the first shipment of illegal immigrants from his state reaching Washington a month ago. --->READ MORE HERE

Arizona Is Busing Migrants To DC. Guess Who They Want To Pay For It?
Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey has started busing migrants from the border to Washington, D.C., and he hopes President Joe Biden will eventually pay for the effort.
One bus had already arrived in Washington and another was on its way as migrants continue to pour over the Arizona border in anticipation of Title 42’s expected end, Ducey spokesman C.J. Karamargin told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Ducey intends to bill the Biden administration for the program.
“This is a problem caused by Washington. So we are bringing it to Washington. This is the flow of asylum seekers, migrants entering into the United States or coming into our or entering through Arizona because it’s easy and bearing the burden for this is our communities. Like folks in Yuma, where hospitals, community organizations, nongovernmental organizations are being strained tremendously. So, the goal here is to alleviate the burden for Arizonans,” Karamargin told TheDCNF.
“The funds will be coming out of our border states border security fund, but we will be sending the bill to Washington. They caused it, they should pay for it,” he added.
20 migrants were on the first bus that arrived Wednesday and 40 were on the second bus, Karamargin said. Each bus can accommodate 40 migrants. --->READ MORE HERE
