President Joe Biden on Thursday expressed his frustration with Republican governors sending migrants from the Southern border to Democrat-run cities, calling their actions “Un-American.”
“Republicans are playing politics with human beings, using them as props,” Biden said. “What they’re doing is simply wrong. It’s un-American. It’s reckless”
The president spoke at the Hispanic Caucus Institute Gala celebrating the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month.
Biden reacted to the news Thursday that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew a group of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard and that Texas Gov. Greg Abbot sent a busload of migrants to Vice President Kamala Harris’s home in Washington, DC.
He defended his administration’s immigration system, blaming Republicans for getting in the way.
“We have a process in place to manage migrants at the border. We’re working to make sure its safe and orderly and humane,” he said.
