Cross said that last week his department received a 911 call from a store manager claiming a bus had dropped migrants at his store.
Cross said he responded and saw the bus pulling away and migrants following the bus.
“I stopped the bus, went on to the driver, and asked him what he was doing,” Cross told FOX News. “And he said, ‘Well, I can’t stop them from getting off the bus.’ And I said, ‘Well, you are not leaving them here. They have no resources; we have nothing for them here in Dade County.’”
Cross said migrants, through a translator, claimed they were being coerced by the driver of the bus to get off in Dade County.
But none of the latest reports seem to make Abbott slow down the policy.
Eze, Abbott’s spokesperson, said in an email Thursday, “Texas will continue stepping up to protect Texans and provide relief to our overwhelmed border communities by busing migrants to New York City and our nation’s capital.”
