Texas Lt. Christopher Olivarez says busing illegal immigrants from Texas to Washington is ‘prudent’

Lt. Christopher Olivarez, an interviewer on Mornings with Maria, stated that the purpose of busing migrants from Texas to Washington D.C. is to show them what smaller border communities have to deal with. Greg Abbott's initiative came as Olivarez warned illegal border smugglers are tripled their profits, even tripled their profits.

CHRISTOPHER OLIVAREZ: When Governor Abbott made that announcement last week about busing illegal immigrants from Texas to Washington, D.C. first, he was criticized, saying it was a publicity stunt. As of yesterday, the first bus arrived in Washington, D.C. so Governor Abbott carried on with his message and he promised that he was transporting these immigrants to Washington, D.C. Now the press secretary is correct. These are individuals that have been processed. We can't transport illegal immigrants that have not been processed because it would defeat the whole purpose of what we're trying to do. They brought the border to Washington, D.C. so they could see how small border communities are having to deal with the influx of illegal immigrants that are being released to their communities. We're at one million wow encounters in the first six months. They are tripled their profits compared to last year because they border smugglers are doubling, even tripled their profits.
