Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick spoke with Fox News about Governor Abbott’s migrant busing campaign and had a word of warning for New York City Mayor Eric Adams: “don’t threaten Texas.”
“Look out your window, you might see a bus coming to you one day in the future,” Patrick warned on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom.
“We’re desperate… We’ve got to make this a story, Patrick adds.”
“We’ve had now 400,000 people in the Del Rio sector in the last year,” Patrick said. “The population of that town is 36,000. That would be like us sending 80 million to New York… if we can put pressure on all these Democrat mayors around the country, maybe they’ll pick up the phone and call Joe Biden and say the border is not secure.”
“We’re now on pace in his first term to be over 8 million people here illegally,” Patrick continues. “Not counting the gotaways, just the ones we apprehend. That’s the entire population of New York City coming to America. We will be at 15% or more population in the next 5 to 10 years in this country of people who are here illegally.”
Since April, Governor Abbott’s office has sent nearly 7,000 migrants on buses up north.
