The Biden administration will consider “litigation options” this week against Republican governors who send border migrants to Democratic cities, according to a report.
Friday’s meeting involving White House officials along with the Homeland Security, State, Justice and Defense departments will also discuss other border issues amid a record number of migrants entering the country illegally, Axios reported.
The meeting was scheduled before Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sent two charter planes full of immigrants to Massachusetts’ affluent Martha’s Vineland on Wednesday, but months later from Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Arizona Governor , Doug Ducey, sending buses full of immigrants from the border to other places like New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Abbott also sent two buses of immigrants to Vice President Kamala Harris’ home in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.
Democrats condemned the transport of immigrants on buses as political theater.

President Biden said on Thursday: “Republicans are playing politics with human beings, using them as props. What they are doing is just wrong, it’s not American, it’s reckless.”
He continued as he spoke at a Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute gala: “And we have a process for managing migrants at the border. We’re working to ensure it’s safe, orderly and humane,” Biden continued. “Republican officials must not interfere in this process by making these political maneuvers.”
Republicans said all migrants volunteer to be transported by bus and many said they were grateful for the ride, but others said they thought they were being sent to cities other than where they arrived.
DeSantis at a press conference on Thursday said: “We are not a ‘sanctuary’ state, and it’s better to be able to go to a ‘sanctuary’ jurisdiction and yes, we will help facilitate that transportation so you can go to greener pastures.
“Biden would take people in the middle of the night, throw them all over the country. There was no warning about any of this and all those people in DC and New York were beating their chests when Trump was president, saying they were so proud to be ‘sanctuary’ jurisdictions. “, saying how bad it was to have a secure border. At the moment when even a small fracture of what these border towns deal with every day is brought before you [door] they suddenly freak out and get so upset that this is happening.”
He claimed this shows that “virtue signage is a fraud” by the Democrats.

Abbott said Thursday in a statement: “The Biden-Harris administration continues to ignore and deny the historic crisis on our southern border, which has endangered and burdened Texas communities for nearly two years.”
“Our alleged vice president of the Border Czar, Kamala Harris, has yet to visit the border to see firsthand the impact of the open border policies she has helped implement, going so far as to claim the border is ‘secure'” .
Harris has been criticized by conservatives for apparently avoiding the border even after Biden tasked Harris with examining the “root causes” of illegal immigration shortly after taking office.
