Arizona Governor Doug Ducey announced on Wednesday that the state will follow the lead of Texas and transport migrants to Washington D.C.
The announcement was a portion of a larger action plan laid out by Ducey to address the ongoing border crisis.
“With Arizona community resources under all-time demand, and little action or assistance from the federal government, individuals who entered Arizona seeking asylum have the opportunity to voluntarily be transported to Washington, D.C. The transportation will include meals, and onboard staffing and support,” a press release from Ducey’s office outlined.
Earlier this year, Texas Governor Greg Abbott detailed the plan with the goal of bringing attention to the issue due to lack of action from the federal government.
Furthermore, President Joe Biden is attempting to lift Title 42, a public health measure that curbed the number of immigrants allowed into the country due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Cartels [are] preying on those seeking refuge for a better life, and facilitating the flow of drugs into American communities. And — these criminals are using your companies’ social media platforms to make it happen,” Ducey wrote.
The governor’s office detailed that Arizona law enforcement agencies have tracked misleading posts used by cartels to attract young adults.
“Your companies have established reporting mechanisms for criminal behavior, but we need stronger action to prevent this activity that is drawing our young people into a life of crime. Inaction only enables cartels to victimize countless youth and families. This crisis presents a real opportunity for you and your companies to take action and make a difference,” Ducey added.

Jayapal: Disgusting FNC Using Baby Formula Crisis to Demonize Immigrants
Representative Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) said Friday on CNN’s “The Lead” that she believed Fox News was “disgusting” for calling babies “illegal” while pointing to immigrants getting formula stockpiles from the government amid nationwide baby formula shortage.
Anchor Jake Tapper said, “I want to give you an opportunity to respond to one of the criticisms we’re seeing on the right in conservative media and Republican politicians focusing on images from the border that show there is formula available to processing centers for undocumented immigrants. Here’s Fox this morning.”
FNC host Ainsley Earhardt said, “She is saying that they are giving the formula, all of these palettes of formula, to the illegal babies on the border. Meanwhile, so many American families can’t find this formula on the shelves in their stores.”
Jayapal said, “I found it disgusting. I would never call a baby illegal, and this apparently comes from the party that says they’re pro-life, pro-family. Didn’t want to fund the child tax credit so millions of kids could come out of poverty. Don’t want to provide child care, don’t want to provide paid leave, family leave.”
She added, “I don’t need to be lectured by people who won’t even stand up for the children that are right here and then use a crisis like this to again do what they have always done, demonize immigrants. It’s just ridiculous.”
