According to a report from Fox News, the first NYC-bound bus carrying migrants from the southern border has arrived in the Big Apple. Texas Governor Greg Abbott says “I hope [Mayor Adams] follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants.”
“In addition to Washington, D.C., New York City is the ideal destination for these migrants, who can receive the abundance of city services and housing that Mayor Eric Adams has boasted about within the sanctuary city,” Abbott said. “I hope he follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief.”
In addition to the latest NYC bus, Texas has sent at least 5,100 migrants to Washington D.C.
Abbott shared news of the NYC bus on Twitter.

More from Fox News:
Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser, who has championed accepting migrants entering the country illegally as a human rights issue, requested the District of Columbia National Guard be activated indefinitely to assist with what she called a “humanitarian crisis.”
Both Bowser and New York City Mayor Eric Adams have sounded the alarm about migrants being sent to their cities, with the city leaders blaming Arizona and Texas for the influx. (Arizona has denied sending migrants to New York City.)
