Border Crisis

DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS: 5 More Buses Arrive in NYC, Abbott Says Adams 'All Talk' on Open Borders

Texas Governor Greg Abbott called out Big Apple Mayor Eric Adams in a New York Post op-ed on Wednesday as five more migrant buses arrive in NYC; Abbott says Adams is a hypocrite when it comes to open borders.

From The New York Post:

Mayor Adams likes to pat himself on the back for welcoming migrants with open arms to his sanctuary city. That is, until he actually has to follow through on those lofty promises.

Since Texas began busing migrants to New York City from our southern border on Aug. 5, the mayor has been on a publi­city campaign fueled by outright lies and misinformation intended to distract from his hesitancy to provide the services and support he self-righteously touted on the campaign trail.

Adams’ fabricated claims about Texas’ treatment of migrants have no basis in reality. To be clear, any migrant who boards a bus from Texas to New York has signed an agreement to be transported to the city. All are provided food and ­water throughout the ­journey.

Adams talked the talk about being a sanctuary city — welcoming illegal immigrants into the Big Apple with warm hospitality. Talk is cheap. When pressed into fulfilling such ill-considered policies, he wants to condemn anyone who is pressing him to walk the walk.

Worst of all is Adams’ hypocrisy. He now complains that he and New York City are overwhelmed by migrants to such an extent that he demands federal help and discourages Texas from sending more buses to his city. Yet he remained silent when President Biden flew migrants into New York, many of whom ended up in New York City.

Governor Abbott shared the op-ed on Twitter, saying “Mayor Adams likes to pat himself on the back for welcoming migrants to his sanctuary city. Until he actually has to follow through on those lofty promises. Instead of attacking Texas, Mayor Adams should call on Biden to do his job & secure our border.”

Abbott has sent more than 1,000 migrants to New York City since August 5th.
