The hypocrisy is insane, I agree.
Whether Abbott put migrants on buses to stick it to the lefties or as a plea for understanding is debatable. DeSantis, using taxpayer money to do the exact same thing, was unforgivable, and just really dumb. What was the point of it though, other than drawing attention to the border problem? And can somebody explain to me where Florida shares a border with Mexico, to even be involved in the conversation? It's not like DeSantis bussed immigrants from Georgia or Alabama, or even those snowbirds that can't fucking drive!
Biden has always thought that the immigration thing was an issue, just not as high up as other priorities on the list.
But like so with many issues, politics is costing us greatly with this one. And by "us", I mean Americans. Things could be so much better, but not if either party can raise money for their candidates on that issue.
Whether the president is Democrat or Republican, some issues have been a problem for too damn long, distracting us when a new problem arises (anyone remember COVID?) and weakens us as a country by allowing those that would do us harm a way to do that harm.
Immigration reform may have helped Trump get elected, but McConnel wasn't having any part in that mess. Turtle just wanted those tax cuts and conservative judges, not to actually fix a problem that raised so much money.
Really, I think we need to be looking less at whoever our president is for immigration policy, and more towards Congress which is actually SUPPOSED to be doing it.
