Abbott sent several buses, carrying nearly 150 migrants to the Naval Observatory in September, and followed up by sending around 80 more in October. Before reaching Texas, the state said the migrants traveled from countries such as Colombia, Cuba, Guyana, Nicaragua, Panama, and Venezuela.
Texas has bused almost 8,400 migrants to the nation's capital since April.
Over 3,800 have been sent to New York City since August 5, and more than 1,200 took trips to Chicago since August 31, according to Texas officials. This week, the first bus of migrants departed for Philadelphia from Texas.
The unprecedented bus trips are part of Abbott's Operation Loan Star program, which aims to "fill the dangerous gaps left by the Biden Administration's refusal to secure the border."
Texas said its busing mission is providing much-needed relief to its overwhelmed border communities.
