Greg Abbott is not messing around.
According to a report from Fox News, Texas Governor Greg Abbott sent a second migrant bus from the southern border to New York City in a move that infuriated Big Apple Mayor Eric Adams.
“Adams gave a news conference Sunday morning at the Port Authority where he greeted an incoming bus of around 40 migrants — only 14 of whom disembarked in the Big Apple,” Fox News reported.
“This is horrific when you think about what the governor is doing,” Adams said, noting that many of the arriving families did not realize they were coming to New York City.
“We’re finding that some of the families are on the bus that wanted to go to other locations, and they were not allowed to do so,” the mayor said. “They were forced on the bus with the understanding that they were going to other locations that they wanted to go to, and when they tried to explain they were not allowed to do so.”
“They’re not letting us know when the buses are leaving. They’re not letting us know what are the needs of the people on the bus,” Adams said. “They are not giving us any information, so we’re unable to really provide the service to people en route.”
“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 in a statement on Friday.
Abbott commented on Adams’ reaction on Twitter:
“New York City mayor says this is ‘horrific.’ Did he say it was “horrific” when Biden flew plane loads into New York? Nope! Horrific is Biden’s policy of letting in ~ 2 million illegal immigrants. The NY mayor has no idea how horrific it really is.”
New York City mayor says this is "horrific."
Did he say it was "horrific" when Biden flew plane loads into New York? Nope!
Horrific is Biden's policy of letting in ~ 2 million illegal immigrants.
The NY mayor has no idea how horrific it really is.https://t.co/hZFkYVbKP2
