An immigration enforcement organization says if the president wants red states to stop sending illegal migrants to blue states, there's a simple solution.

In an effort to cope with Biden's open borders policies, multiple governors have bused loads of migrants from America's southern border to liberal areas like Chicago, New York City, and Martha's Vineyard. In response, liberal mayors complain that the influx of illegals is affecting their cities in negative ways.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has echoed those frustrations.

"Busing or flying migrants around the country without any coordination with the federal government … is dangerous and unacceptable, and we'll continue to be very, very clear about that," she said at a recent press briefing.

The practice, she said, is putting too much "pressure" on non-border states.

Ira Mehlman, media director for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), says the Biden administration seems to be having difficulty identifying the real source of problem.

"The problem isn't that Ron DeSantis (R-Florida) and Greg Abbott (R-Texas) are sending migrants around the country. The problem is that the Biden administration is keeping that border wide open," he reasons. "They are just redistributing to localities around the country that claim to be sanctuaries."

He adds, though, that the solution is simple: They should just stop the migrants from coming into the country in the first place.
