The Biden administration is continuing to closely monitor the possibility of Republican governors transporting, without notice, groups of migrants to Democratic cities, an administration official told CNN on Thursday.
The official stressed that the White House was fully expecting -- and continuing to prepare for -- the possibility of Govs. Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas sending more groups of migrants to various cities in the coming weeks, saying they had no reason to believe that those governors were finished with such maneuvers.
This comes on the heels of Delaware officials and others scrambling earlier this week to make preparations after reports and flight plans suggested that a plane might be preparing to take a group of migrants from Texas to President Joe Biden's home state. As of Thursday afternoon, the administration was not aware of any reports of new flights of migrants potentially headed to Delaware, the official said.
