Katie Hobbs is the new governor of Arizona after narrowly defeating Republican challenger Kari Lake in the midterms. Hobbs is a Democrat and left-wing individual, but after being sworn in, she made a surprising announcement.
Illegal immigrants will continue to be bused out of the state, just the same way her predecessor GOP Governor Doug Ducey was doing.
Hobbs said she will promote a campaign to transfer these migrants to U.S. cities where they were already wanting to go.
Why Is Hobbs Doing This?
According to Hobbs, many sponsors of these migrants are in other U.S. cities. On January 13, Hobbs renewed the migrant transfer assistance program and maintained the same service provider as the previous government.
Under Ducey, many migrants ended up in New York and Washington, DC. According to him, he was just doing what was necessary and trying to get migrants to where they had sponsors and opportunities.
He pointed out that all migrants, who were asked to leave Arizona, withdrew of their own free will, without suffering any kind of oppression.

A Humanitarian Migrant Busing Program?
In an official press release, Hobbs said the program to support these people is humanitarian. Hobbs already claims the program invested money to remove migrants from the state, then they are properly transferred to the final destination cities.
That way, the state is actually doing a good deed for the community, according to Hobbs. She added some migrants will also be flown out on planes to sanctuary cities and final destinations.
