MIGRANT PROBLEM? TAKE IT UP WITH JOE! Abbott Blasts NYC's Adams for 'Cowards' Remark

Thems fightin’ words.

Mayor of New York City Eric Adams took a shot at Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey for busing migrants out of their states and sending them up north.

“Our country is home of the free, land of the brave,” Adams said, according to the New York Post. “We do not become cowards and send people away who are looking for help.”

Abbott fired back at Adams, suggesting the Big Apple mayor should take it up with President Biden.

“Mayor Adams’ problem is not with Texas. It is with President Biden’s refusal to stop this border crisis and secure our southern border,” Abbott wrote.

“President Biden’s open border policies created this ongoing humanitarian crisis, allowing record-high illegal crossings and deadly drugs like fentanyl to flood into our state. A crisis that has overrun and overwhelmed our border towns and communities across our state, whose requests for help have gone ignored and unanswered by the Biden Administration,” he added.

“I launched our border busing mission back in April to help our local partners, busing over 5,500 migrants to Washington, D.C. so far. Texas has not bused any migrants to New York,” Abbott noted. “Instead, it is President Biden who has flown planeloads of migrants to New York. Mayor Adams should address his frustration with migrants to the root cause: Joe Biden.”

Abbott shared the statement on Twitter:

“Mayor Adams should address his frustration w/ migrants to the root cause: Joe Biden. I launched our border busing mission in April to help our local communities. Biden has flown planeloads of migrants to NY. The problem is not Texas. It’s Biden’s REFUSAL to secure our border.”
