What may have been a nightmare for the governors of Texas, Florida and Arizona has turned into a major boon for migrants, who are now willing to leave Latin America for the freedom of the United States (“Texas migrant busing crosses 10,000 mark,” Web, Sept. 9).

What Texas Gov. Greg Abbott did to distract migrants from entering the country has not actually worked in his fight to get Donald Trump’s wall built. It has not gone over well within his political base.

Nor has the same tactic worked for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who put 50 migrants on a bus to Washington, only to have them show up at the Naval Observatory residence of Vice President Kamala Harris.



The real horror show will be them facing the wrath of Texas, Florida and Arizona voters. This was their legacy, and it has turned into a major boon for the Democrats.
