Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass blasted Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott late Monday for transporting migrants to the city as Tropical Storm Hilary bore down on the region.


“It is evil to endanger the lives of vulnerable migrants by sending a bus with families and toddlers on board to a city that at the time was under an unprecedented tropical storm warning,” Bass said in a statement.


Bass said that as she warned Angelenos about the storm, “the Governor of Texas sent families and toddlers straight for us on a path through extreme weather conditions.”


“If anybody understands the danger of hurricanes and thunderstorms, it’s the Governor of Texas — who has to deal with this threat on an annual basis. This is a despicable act beyond politics,” she added.
